In terms of water meter reading, the majority of 16 million houses use mechanical water meter in korea. So, a member of the utility's staff needs to access periodically the water meter and the value of the metered volume. However, due to the use of mechanical water meter, many issues have been appeared as cost, time, errors, accessibility, and readability. To settle these issues, we developed the walk-by meter reading system of digital water meter and outside indicator based on ubiquitous. And we could get the characteristics and the economical efficiency for water meter reading system. Thus, this study shows that the system can be widely used to the block system and the meter reading system for stable water supply.
