Description

In order to activate the Smartlink45 system, 4 utilities need to be registered.  Ie. 2 meters with 2 utilities each (water+electric) or 4 meters with 1 utility on each (electric/gas)

Each tenant is given a Smartlink Hub (white unit) this shows how much credit is on their unit.  By pressing the blue button on the unit the tenant can view the readings for each utility connected.  They can also activate the emergency credit option (default amount of £ 5.00) to tide them over before pay-day.

Each meter is read through a roaming sim card which is in a modem unit with a hi-gain aerial attached.  This means that your tenant does not need the internet or broadband – the system works independently.  Installation costs are separate to the equipment purchased from Meters UK.  We do have a number of electricians who work throughout the UK, on the Smartlink installations and whom we are happy to recommend.

Standard fitting is for each tenant to have a Smartlink unit with a modem and aerial attached, however other options maybe available to you depending on the layout of the building, units as well as signal.  LoRa or network installations can be an option.

Should you wish to incorporate cash takings for utilities, we have the X6 phone available.  This unit connects directly to the meters and allows the user to top up the meter remotely.  This is ideal for holiday parks where customers are prepaying for their utilities by cash or card at the reception and the meters are then topped up by the receptionist.

We ensure that each meter is working correctly on installation and continue to monitor them on a weekly basis for you.  You have access to the online landlord portal giving you access to each meter in your portfolio and should you have any issues or concerns we address them immediately.

We are happy to do an online demonstration with you, showing you exactly how the system works and the reports available to you on a daily basis.

    Decided to change from card meters to the Smartlink on line version and glad I did. I have all 3 utilities taken care of and no more cards to buy. I would defiantly recommend this product.

    “I’m a small scale HMO landlord, who deals with many property associated supply, services etc companies ,,,usually the big ones, but many questionable as, most, leave a lot to be desired when it comes to good n loyal customer service.

    Am new to the individual flats rental market.I can only say, though I had a couple of other options I checked out, n could have gone with some other utility meter providers,but didn’t. I’m so glad & happy I choose, went with the guys at MetersUk. The team Derek, Jacqui and Vicki I’ve dealt with, could not do more to help,explain,sort clarify things for me (am dyslexic, old school and not the most technical tbh) but it’s fairly simple…and all done by a very friendly family firm, who tailor your needs, in such a personal, effective and efficient manner.

    Means ease… and no more hassle with cards,token,keys running out, shops out of stock,broken top-up machines,closed shops night, rain etc..etc.. just a great value for money easy conv system.Simple,modern and efficient,,just exactly what modern tenants need,want.

    To reiterate; Both sets of my tenants are very happy with MeterUk unique PAYG tri-multi bills smart meters, no complaints..as all are simple to work,keep an eye on control access from both ends,(tenants and landlords) and all are very easy, fair and transparent to operate, low top up alert etc. so they never run out. Perfect!

    These guys are the Best utilities service provider ever..

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND both their excellent multi bills meters, good service …and GREAT team.”

  4. Cam

    I have had card operated prepayment meters in my properties for many years and recently changed to the on line system. I am very pleased that I decided to go ahead with tri fuel which covers electric gas and water. I have no problems with tenants running out of cards and the tenants are happy with the easy to use system.

  5. Julian

    I had been wondering for a while whether to change to the Smartlink prepayment and am so pleased that I decided to go ahead. I have 9 flats with electric, gas & water – the system is simple to use for my tenants and I can easily check all transactions through the landlord portal and Meters uk transfer the money at the end of each month to me.

  6. J D Pritchard
