Remote system to control the costs of housing

Remote system to control the costs of housing

It is a comprehensive system that continually monitors the consumption of hot and cold water, heat, and electricity. Radio measuring devices are installed in each room or bathroom after an hour of sending the actual data to headquarters, where they are evaluated and shared in the information system. Data are available to students at

The system sets up error messages that record excessive consumption that may arise from failure or inefficient operation of guests and therefore can SÚZ VSE immediately respond to possible failures or accidents.

This system will have individual accommodation accurate overview of their consumption and the related housing costs.

For billing media, RFA covers:

  • Still only payments
  • Costs of losses on the distribution media
  • Costs of common areas, building operation and cleaning

Frequently asked questions

I used heater only for a few days during winter and I am still invoiced for heat, even though I dont use heater. Why I must pay several months for something I dont use?

From physical point of view absence of heat consumption altogether in your room isnt possible. If you compare outside and inside temperature in maddeo application you will definitely see difference. If none heat produced by building will be used, temperatures will match. Result is that room consume heat.

Description of system

Heat monitoring system is based on measuring of temperature inside of rooms every 15 minutes. Charged price is for heat from heaters inside of room, but from other rooms and corridor also. From technical perspective isnt possible create ideal state and isolate room from heat completely. In that case outside and inside temperature will match. In case of payment absence for heat from surrounding sources, accommodated student will be able to have heater switched off, opened doors and only other people will be charged. This way is most fair for all students from all possible approved options. However, completely ideal way isnt possible.
