Canary Smart Meter Solution

Canary Labs' Canary Smart Meter Solution stores smart meter data via patent-pending Canary Enterprise Historian technology. A time series database is designed to store and retrieve data. For instance, data from 650,000 smart meters that report usage every 15 mins would utilize 11 GByte of disk space each month-which is 1/10th the amount of disk space required by traditional SQL databases. Logging and data performance provided by the Canary Smart Meter Solution provides a customizable data management solution with long term data management capabilities. Data can be used to generate reports, as well as web pages that provide information to consumers.

Key features of the Canary Smart Meter:

  • Fast and efficient data storage
  • Redundancy to protect data and increase availability
  • Facilitates long-term data management, including data validation, archiving and roll-up
  • Provides security and audit logs to enhance records
  • Delivers customized reports and charts for specific application requirements
  • Allows web access to reports and charts
