FlexNet System Stands Up to Mother Nature
Sensus and its electric, water and gas utility customers are proving that an important line of defense against severe weather can be found in a resilient, two-way communication network. Using Sensus FlexNet® technology utilities can collect and access real-time data from various smart sensors that provide a critical view of a utility’s infrastructure. It’s this access to system status before, during and after a storm that helps utilities restore services faster and avoid additional damage.
In October of 2012, two Sensus customers—the Township of Stafford and Seaside Heights, New Jersey—were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy. Utility officials discuss the storm’s impact, the steps they took to prepare and repair and how technology improved the situation in the video below, “Superstorm Sandy: Lessons Learned.”
There’s no Sandy playbook. You try to replace things as quickly as you can.

I believe homes would still be leaking today if we didn’t have FlexNet.
