Commercial Acquisition Agent

WattMetrics’ engineers have brought over 20 years combined experience building data acquisition systems to the design of our Commercial Acquisition Agent. The result leads the industry in robustness, flexibility and ease of use.

One Platform


Works with all data sources supported by WattMetrics.  

A single Agent can support dozens of data sources simultaneously.


Support for new data sources (inverters, circuit-meters, etc..) can be automatically downloaded from WattMetrics as they become available. Customers can leverage their investment in a WattMetrics system to include data from new equipment at any time.


Onboard data storage for weeks or months (depending on acquisition resolution) without network access with no loss of data. All data is stored on battery-backed, encrypted media.


Standard record resolution is 5 minutes, oversampled at 30 second intervals. One minute record resolution also available.

Easy Install


Each Agent automatically 'discovers' and starts gathering data from any data source supported by WattMetrics. No installer intervention with the Agent is required.

No Special Network Configuration

All Agent communication with is via secure, firewall-friendly  HTTPS. As long as standard DHCP and port 80 access is available, no special network configuration is required.


Units can be preconfigured for stocking by WattMetrics partners. Installers can complete their projects on their own schedules.


Conduit-ready polycarbonate enclosure is NEMA 4, IP 65 rated.

Industrial temperature rating of -30 to + 70°.

Transflective 4x80 character integrated display is easy to read indoors or out. It provides immediate feedback to installers regarding Agent and communications status.
