Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETECTING AND REPORTING ANOMALIES IN UTILITY METERS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for utility intervention are disclosed. The method of utility intervention includes: (i) obtaining utility data from a utility data repository; (ii) detecting, using at least one type of anomaly-detecting module, at least one utility anomaly and a location address; (iii) calculating an amount of financial savings for the utility anomaly if the utility anomaly was remedied or addressed; (iv) computing a certainty score for the utility anomaly; (v) conveying information about the type of utility anomaly, and the location address of the utility anomaly; and (vi) displaying, on a display screen of a client device, a map depicting a geographical area that identifies, using a flag icon, the location address on the map of the utility anomaly, the type of the utility anomaly, a certainty score for the utility anomaly, and/or an amount of financial savings associated with the utility anomaly.
