What is AMR and how does it work? AMR is an acronym for automated meter reading, a state-of-the-art technology that enables Laclede Gas to read your gas meter automatically. The AMR system employs a wireless fixed network with read devices that will be attached to existing meter sets of all Laclede Gas customers. Reads from each meter are transmitted to local network receivers and transferred to Laclede’s customer billing system, resulting in the production of a timely, accurate bill.
Who received AMR devices? Nearly all residential and commercial natural gas customers in the Laclede Gas and Missouri Natural (MONAT) service areas have had AMR devices installed on the existing meter sets.
Who installs and maintains the AMR device? In 2005, Laclede partnered with Cellnet Technology, Inc. (now Landis + Gyr) to install and maintain the meter-reading devices. AMR devices have been installed on existing meter sets of all Laclede Gas and Missouri Natural (MONAT) customers.
