Our Services

Smart metering for estates, malls, apartment blocks and even granny flats. We monitor a wide range of utilities like electricity, water, air conditioning, heat pumps, generators, pool pumps, etc. With our IoT solutions the possibilities are endless!

Combined with our smart metering, we give you faster and easier tenant billing. With real time dashboards, tariff management and end of month bills in PDF, Excel or whichever format you require. We’ll keep both your tenants and accounting team happy.

We give advice for businesses and body corporates to optimise tariffs by combining engineering and financial expertise. Our community of like-minded Homebug Heroes give advice and guidance on how to reduce your utility bills.
