Emlite EMA1 Smart Top Up Meter with separate supply for Off-Peak
(Electricity Only)

With separate supply for Off-peak / Dual Fuel. TOPUPMETERS is a new and exciting way for landlords to recharge for energy usage within their rental properties. Using the proven Em-lite smart meter TOPUPMETERS is the most modern and up to date prepayment solution available.

WWW.TOPUPMETERS.CO.UK offers the latest technology and service for managing energy to your tenants. Like traditional prepayment metering the tenant or consumer will need to prepay for the energy they use , but unlike previous prepayment systems no cash or tokens are required. They simply need to purchase energy form the secure payment website and credit is instantly transferred to their meter via the GSM network.

Many benefits are available to the landlords or site owner in using this system and once the meters are installed there is no other management required. Simply give each tenant the website address and follow the instructions. We will transfer their payments periodically to your nominated bank account. It really is that simple—no issuing of tokens , no cash to be collected and no additional costs. Just an easy monthly payment that can be recovered from the standing charges to your tenant.

This GSM based prepayment meter is to deliver an electrical supply upon pre-payment for the duration of the 
units of electricity paid for, this would generally be the best option for landlords to supply a tennant's general electricity 
for a whole residence.
If you are a landlord or property owner looking to install a meter that charges the tennant for a unit quantity of electricity used 
then this is likely the type of meter you are looking for.

For a meter that supplies electricity for a timed duration only please see Emlite EML-T. Typical exaples of this would be
for showers, washers or dryers.
