Nighthawk MESH Smart Meter - Itron form - RDM960

The RDM Series provides wireless, remote two-way control for residential power management and metering.


Dynamic, self-configuring, mesh-radio-networked meters clustered around a cellular gateway meter, which routes commands and alerts back and forth between the meters and Nighthawk's award-winning and Cloud-based WebConnect™ meter command screens.

With a few computer mouse clicks, you can map your mesh network, remotely disconnect or reconnect with positive confirmation, or retrieve meter readings in under 30 seconds or as prescheduled.
