"The applications included TCAM’s data logger for water sensing and environmental monitoring, New Cosmos' award-winning natural gas detectors, Rongwen's ambient noise sensor connecting via their 7-pin Networked Lighting Controller and water meter, and Houston Radar’s dynamic lighting solution with peer-to-peer communications. Western Power also connected two smart-enabled streetlights to Itron’s Streetlight Vision (SLV) as part of the Smart Lab."
"Itron, Inc. which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, awarded the first annual Itron Innovator Award to Con Edison for its deployment of natural gas detectors, which were developed in collaboration with New Cosmos USA Inc. using Itron’s Milli™ 5 battery-optimized wireless communications module. The award, which will be presented at Itron Utility Week 2019 in Marco Island, Florida, recognizes an Itron customer for driving excellence in innovation and taking advantage of Itron’s partner enablement programs to deliver value from concept to consumer."
"Con Edison is installing 376,000 smart-technology natural gas detectors for customers in New York City and Westchester County, providing an unprecedented level of protection against potentially dangerous leaks. Con Edison was the first utility in the United States to deploy the technology, a product of New Cosmos, when it began the pilot in Lower Manhattan and several Westchester County communities."
"Through its developer program, Itron co-developed a solution to help mitigate natural gas leaks, preventing devastating damage and enhancing safety for communities around the world. With New York City energy company Con Edison's initiative, Itron and New Cosmos partnered to incorporate Itron's Gen5 communications technology into highly sensitive and reliable natural gas detectors that can now identify gas leaks and send critical alerts via the Itron network used by utilities and cities. This allows quick preventive intervention by gas utilities and emergency crews."
