The IoT division, known as AcotelNet, introduces on the Italian market an innovative service platform for smart metering and energy management; built completely in house, it monitors energy consumption (power, water, gas), based on a fully integrated cloud environment, from data pick up to data transmission and elaboration on the web platform.

Thanks to the devices developed by the IoT division, with embedded SIMs and custom Acotel firmware, it has been possible to expand the service platform also for Health Management. This evolution allows to optimize and enhance the physician/patient relationship, managing long term care illnesses, and giving health care institutions an innovative tool for the daily care of their customers.

Sorgenia and Acotel Net present My Next Meter

Sorgenia and Acotel Net have signed a partnership agreement to offer to the energy operator's business customers an advanced smart metering device. My Next Meter allows to monitor own consumption and therefore take action to reduce billing costs up to a 20% savings on the total yearly. 

Thanks to the device, the Sorgenia customers can acquire the consumption data directly from the counter and, through the connected platform, can analyze so as to identify how to intervene to decrease. A notification system also warns customers in case of anomalies, too much high consumption or not at all. The solution developed by Sorgenia promotes a conscious use of energy and will help small and medium businesses reduce waste. The cloud platform that completes the proposed service allows to aggregate and compare data according to customer needs and to elaborate useful insights into the energy performance of own business. Through My Next Meter, the customer is himself, a key element of efficiency and management of own energy in a much smarter way.

The first patent of Acotel Group!

Acotel Group got its first patent for industrial invention for its device AReader; a new important milestone confirming the high level of technological innovation that has always characterized the Group. This acknowledgment of the protection and enhancement of Acotel's industrial property enables the Company to be competitive on the market.

AReader, a device built entirely in house by Acotel, is able to read power consumption from mechanical counters with "drum" numeric indicators, that is, those that do not have an impulse output. This way, any old, light, water and gas meter becomes accessible for remote consumption reading and ready for access to its data. AReader transforms the information recorded from the pulse analogue counter wheels that are then sent to the Acotel Net Cloud Platform capable of monitoring consumption and highlighting any waste at any time. Thanks to the Acotel Net device, old-fashioned residential, commercial and industrial buildings can also be monitored in abnormal conditions - such as broken water pipes and / or gas leaks - getting energy consumption information with the consequent optimization of energy distribution and reduction of load peaks.

Acotel in the world

The Group is headquartered in Rome, employs about 170 people, 63% of which in Italy, and has operating facilities in 5 countries with offices in New York, Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Mumbai.
