Every home in Sterling Ranch comes standardly equipped with two Copper devices linked to your water meter and electric and gas meter and an account tied to your Lumiere email address. Your Copper devices capture the same radio frequencies that utilities use for billing and sends information about your utility usage to the cloud, where you can then access it in real time through your Copper app.
What's unique about Copper is the speed and accuracy with which you can see updates to your daily energy use, natural gas use, water use, and solar energy generation (if applicable). Historically, utilities have only been able to provide usage data to customers after the fact. But with Copper, you're able to view and adjust your utility use in real time, allowing you to change the track of your usage and see the impact of your actions in 15-minute increments. The data you receive in your app is billing grade - in fact, the water bills that you receive from the Community Authority Board are based off of your Copper data!
