Add a meter reading

Meter readings are one of a number of different 'inspections' that can be attached to objects in Flow360.

These include asbestos inspections, meter readings (manual and automated), water testing, stock and condition checks and so on.

Some of these can be added manually whilst others such as automated meter readings are submitted on-line by remote sensors or monitors.

NOTE: You should not attempt to mix automated and manual meter readings for the same meter!

Add a manual meter reading

Meter readings are attached to the actual meter they relate to, which should be entered as a resource in the correct location - i.e. as an object at the 'item' level in the appropriate room location or 'area'.
