Special Note: Meter Status in Integration Setup

After completing the steps to configure the integration, you might notice that your meters are showing an Inactive status. This is a normal part of the setup process and occurs because readings have not yet been recorded.

The status of the meter will automatically update when the system completes the first scheduled reading.

If the meter continues to show as Inactive or Stale after these steps, please contact Wild Energy for assistance in troubleshooting your meter connection.

Most Common FAQ:

Q: Will this work for both long-term and short-term guests given the auto-pull feature?

Yes! If a site is available for both long-term and short-term reservations this setup uses a few different parameters to prompt a meter reading:

  1. Auto Pull Frequency/ Auto Pull Schedule - this setting will define how often or at what frequency to automatically pull the reading.
  2. Check In / Check Out - this setting will prompt the system to pull a reading based on the check in and check out dates of the reservation.

For example, if you have a guest checking in to a site tomorrow, checking out in a few days and another guest checking in right after the previous guest for 6 months, these parameters will ensure the readings are pulled correctly for both types of reservations.

Q: Can I still manually adjust the readings?

To ensure system accuracy, the only part of the reading pulled is the charge for the reading. The actual charge is not able to be adjusted.

Q: I completed the steps to configure the integration, but my meters are showing as Inactive status. What should I do?

The status will update when a reading is recorded. The meter is inactive because readings have not yet been recorded since we just set up the integration. To resolve this, you can either perform a Manual Pull to record a reading or wait for the automated scheduled task to run. If the meter continues to show as Inactive or Stale, please contact Wild Energy for assistance in troubleshooting your meter connection.
