Prepayment has never been easier with Topupmeters.  Energy is purchased online using a credit or debit card and instantly sent to the meter over the GSM network.

Payments are made to the owner’s account every month.

Landlords can save time from not having to engage with tenants, or visit meters to collect coins or issue tokens.

While tenant’s enjoy all the benefits of smart metering such as online payments, accurate metering, and in-home display options.

Tokenless prepayment service

The TOPUPMETERS system is completely tokenless.  This means no coins, cash or tokens are used for issuing credit.  No need for any expensive vendor equipment as tenant’s can buy energy online at anytime.

Simple monthly payment

A single payment for the total value of all transactions is sent monthly.  There are no additional charges or fees when remitting energy payments by bank transfer.

Web portal management tools

The online web portal enables property managers to monitor energy consumption, customise tariffs, and setup alerts when a tamper is detected or excessive electricity or gas is being consumed.


From the online web portal users can get up-to-date meter readings, check credit levels, and see recent top-ups.

Update tariff rates over the air at any time without having to visit the meter.  Daily standing charges and emergency credit levels can also be adjusted for individual meters.

  • Powerful charting tools

    Get a long distance view of energy consumption to find out exactly when and how much energy is being used by each meter down to half-hour resolution.

  • Customize tariffs

    Changing the electricity and gas tariff can be done in just a few clicks to instantly update the meter over the air.  Standing charge and emergency credit settings can be adjusted from the meter settings

  • Check credit levels at a glance

    The dashboard shows remaining balances and latest reads, including last day’s energy usage to give an overview of each meter’s status.  Go in depth to see historic energy usage and topup activity.

  • Automatic alerts

    Set up automatic threshold alerts in the event of energy exceeding or falling below a set threshold.   This can indicate if a meter is being tampered with.

For duel fuel prepayment the Gas Pulse Sender can be installed to an existing gas meter.  Pulses from the gas meter are sent wirelessly to the electric meter where pricing is stored and charges are deducted from the balance.

Easy installation

The pulse sender has a 1m cable with RJ11 plug for connection onto compatible gas meters

Long wireless range

The distance between the pulse sender and electric meters can be up to 20 metres depending on the environment.

10 Year battery life

Designed for utilities the pulse sender will keep going for 10 years in typical conditions.

Track gas usage

Consumption data is stored in the electricity meter and remotely updated once a day to the web portal.  Users can get accurate meter readings and analyse patterns to help minimise energy costs.


The 5-terminal Topup meter has 100A load control for external circuits and storage heating

The 5-terminal Emlite EMC-Z meter enables storage heating to be switched on a timing schedule programmed to the meter whilst enjoying the benefits and convenience of prepayment.  The meter continues to operate all the normal functions including dual fuel prepayment.

What are customers are saying


Sekhon Group

Property Management Company in Bradford, UK

“We upgraded from coin operated meters to the Topupmeters system and can’t believe how much easier it is to use for our tenants.”

— Peter Davis
Electrician at Sekhon Group


Stef & Philips

Social Housing Provider

“The ability to manage meters remotely from a web portal has been incredibly beneficial.  Using smart meters has helped identify energy wastage and clamp down on fraudulent behaviour with old card meters”

— Gareth Jones,
Company Director


Ian Waker Property

Property Management – Burnley, UK

“We were using historic card meters in many of our properties.  Keeping a stock of £10 cards for issuing credit was causing a headache for us and our commercial and domestic tenants.  Changing to Topupmeters means we can manage tenant’s energy from anywhere at anytime minimising operational costs and making our life a lot easier.”

— Stuart Yates
Property Manager


Tranquility Parks Ltd

Static and mobile park homes – Devon, UK

“Before we had to maintain a manned office for taking cash payments for issuing card tokens.  Now our residents can buy energy online 24/7 for instant credit top-ups.  The convenience and ease of use is impressive and Dominic’s team have been a pleasure to work with.”

— Joe Jobling
Park Manager at Tranquility Park Homes


Mayroyd Moorings

Canal boat operator – UK

“With Topup prepay smart meters our customers only pay for the energy they use. Previously it was part of their rental agreement where the electricity was included in the rental agremeent but some customers were using considerably more than others who were only there for a few weeks of summer.  Now we have a much fairer system thanks to Topupmeters”
