safety, security and privacy
Automated meters are the standard meter for millions of households worldwide, and that number continues to grow.​
APS places the highest priority on the security of customer account information. That’s why we are constantly working to make sure that security remains at the highest level. We even have outside security firms audit and review our automated meter system to make sure the security methods meet or exceed industry best practices.
The automated meters installed by APS meet all applicable government standards. They emit lower levels of radio frequency exposure than common household items like cell phones and microwaves.
Our personnel no longer need to physically visit the automated meters at your home to obtain the meter reading or connect service. It’s a win for everyone involved.
  • More privacy and convenience for our customers; you don’t need to wait for an appointment, and you don’t need to remember  to unlock your gate.
  • Added safety for our employees; for example, the chances of encountering a dog attack are virtually eliminated.
