prices and automatically switches your energy contract. With June, there are no surprises with yearly bills anymore.
June is an app.
In the event of a rate change, June informs you of its effect on your energy expenses and automatically connects you to a cheaper supplier.
June is an online platform.
It offers insight into your energy usage, tips & advice, as well as access to all documents relevant to your power supply.
June is a smart meter reader.

Custom Antenna Design
“June offers insight into individual power consumption and provides access to all information relevant to the contract, energy tariff, and savings.”
The Belgian company Smart Utility chose us as their development partner because we successfully demonstrated OCR capabilities in a similar application built for reading analog water meters. We quickly developed the electronic modules for taking photos and transferring images from analog counters to the cloud. The system was developed using cost effective solutions to meet the needs for mass production.
A good example of optimization of the manufacturing price is the custom antenna design, which reduced the antenna’s price by 70%. Another example is using the same printed circuit board for both camera and gateway devices. Apart from its development, we have continued our successful cooperation with Smart
Utility by taking over production and quality control duties for June.
We needed a partner with expertise in electronics and software and we had to prepare for mass production. Byte Lab has proven perfect for the job.
