Award-winning commercial and industrial smart meter and smart sensor solutions

Outpost Central’s pedigree in commercial and industrial low-power IoT solutions is unparalleled. We connect tens of thousands of meters and sensors at thousands of shopping centres, hotels, office blocks, apartment buildings, factories schools and universities. And our web based dashboards and reporting tools have been responsible for identifying and fixing enough leaks to fill more olympic sized swimming pools and famous sporting grounds filled to the top (the units of measure of choice when discussing water savings!) than we care to think about. It’s no surprise that we’re one of the largest and fastest growing providers of IoT smart water meter solutions in Australasia.

Smart Water Meters

Our leak detection solution insures you against costly leaks. Receive real-time alerts when a leak is detected on your water meter. Our very simple to install IOT smart meter device clips on to your existing meter and helps you avoid bill shock.


Costly and infrequent manual meter reading for submeter networks is a thing of the past - we turn dumb submeter networks into IoT smart meter networks overnight with the world’s easiest smart metering solution.

Process & Manufacturing

We create plug-and-play solutions that provide instant visibility over processes and manufacturing, the likes of which would typically takes months of planning and thousands of dollars capital investment.


Leak Detection

Our WASP2 logger ( which attaches to virtually any water meter in seconds) has revolutionised leak detection at commercial and industrial sites, typically paying for itself in water savings in the first year. With best-of-breed battery life, compact form factor and proven waterproofness and durability, there simply is not easier way to connect existing water meters to the web. Our user-friendly web-based software will send alerts, generate reports, provide dashboard functionality and disseminate your data to legacy and third-party systems such as BMS, SCADA and billing systems.

Sub Metering

The Outpost smart metering solution is ideal for the collection of data from submetering networks. Plug and play installation and a robust network solution that works anywhere means submeter networks at entire campuses, apartment blocks, residential villages etc can be turned into smart-metering networks virtually overnight. One Australian university recently connected their submeter network of around 100 water and gas meters across several hectares of campus in just a few days using the Outpost solution, and they’re now benefiting from visibility over resource consumption like never before. While another (Australian National University) recently connected 180 submeters to the web using Outpost Central technology, in an award winning project at Australian IoT Awards 2017!


Process & Manufacturing

Plant operators have long grappled with the trade off between wanting visibility over assets and processes, and the cost of traditional SCADA approaches. Outpost Central’s products for connecting instrumentation to the web over public radio networks are changing the way operators think about instrumentation. With solutions that can deployed in minutes, on existing instrumentation, and with none of the traditional planning requirements around power and connectivity, operators can now achieve whole-of-site/process visibility like never before.

Power generation and distribution

With our industry-leading low-power capabilities people often associate Outpost products with low-power applications such as water, gas and environmental monitoring. However our products are widely used in electricity generation and monitoring applications, including demand response programs, energy efficiency projects and contracts, solar power generation, and diesel generators. We have solutions ranging from simple electricity meter retrofit solutions that can be installed and commissioned by virtually anyone in minutes, to dashboard and reporting systems for complex power quality and distribution analysis.
