Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to an in-building billing system, and more particularly to an in-building billing system suitable for billing a shared part of a building.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art In general, a single building often contains a plurality of residents. In addition, these residents naturally use electricity, water, gas, and the like (hereinafter, these are collectively referred to as electricity, etc.).

[0003] The amount of electricity or the like used by each resident is indicated to a meter installed in the building for each purpose of use, and the contents of the meter are processed by a billing system in a building, which will be described later. Is sent to the resident in the form of

[0004] The in-building billing system comprises a usage amount accumulating unit provided for each building, and a terminal device connected to each usage amount accumulating unit via a communication line. In this case, the usage amount integrating unit has a built-in storage unit, integrates the usage amount indicated to the meter for each purpose of use over a certain period (for example, one month), and stores the integration result in the storage unit. The terminal device includes a control unit for controlling the overall operation, an input unit for inputting various requests, a storage unit for storing various data, a printing unit for printing necessary data, and a display unit for displaying necessary data. I have. In the terminal device, when a data request is input at the input unit, a data transmission command is supplied from the control unit to each usage amount integrating unit via the communication line, and the usage amount integrating unit receiving the command is stored in the storage unit. The used usage data is read out and supplied to the terminal device via the communication line, and the supplied usage data is stored in the storage unit. Next, when the data calculation processing is performed in the input unit, the control unit reads the usage amount data stored in the storage unit and performs processing such as data addition as appropriate according to preset setup operation data. As for the usage of the common part, it is necessary to set the distribution parameters (such as the area of the exclusive part and the breaker capacity for each input user) as the operation data, and the distribution is performed using the distribution parameters. Here, “proportioning” means distributing the entire usage according to the ratio determined for each input user. Next, when a printing process is input at the input unit, the printing unit prints the calculation processing result in a predetermined format to create a bill. The resulting bill is sent to each resident.

[0005]

In the prior art billing system in a building, the method of apportioning the common use amount is all apportioned by a fixed value such as an occupied area.
For example, the apportioned value is fixed even if a resident in the building is out of the office for a long time, so there is a problem that a fixed amount of common use fee must be paid every month even when a dedicated unit such as electricity is used. I have.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION An object of the present invention is to provide a billing system in a building in which a bill to a resident for use of electricity, water and gas in a common part of the building is fair.

[0007]

In order to achieve the above object, the present invention relates to a usage amount for integrating at least one usage amount of electricity, water, and gas in a building for each occupant in the building. An accumulating unit, connected to the usage accumulating unit via a communication line, and at least a control unit, an input unit, a storage unit, a display unit, a terminal device including a printing unit, and the control unit includes a previously input unit. The storage unit stores the usage amount output from the usage amount integration unit in accordance with the data request input signal via the communication line, and prints out the usage amount of each resident company by the printing unit. In the in-building billing system that performs the processing, the apportionment of the usage of the shared portion of the building is apportioned by selecting one of a predetermined apportioned fixed value in the dedicated portion of the building and an apportioned variation value that fluctuates every month. Selection It is those with the means.

[0008] With this configuration, the amount of electricity, water, and gas consumed in the common part of the building depends on the fixed ratio, such as the area of each dedicated part where the resident of the building resides. Since the apportioned fixed value to be distributed and the apportioned fluctuation value to be distributed according to the changing ratio of the used amount used by each dedicated unit where the resident of the building lives can be selected, the shared part of the building It is possible to eliminate complaints and unfairness regarding the proportional distribution of electricity, water and gas usage.

[0009]

Embodiments of the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings.

FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing one embodiment of an in-building billing system according to the present invention.

In FIG. 1, reference numeral 1A denotes a usage integrating section installed in one building A (not shown), and 1B denotes another building B.
(Non-illustrated) A usage integration unit installed in another building N (not shown), 1N is a communication circuit such as a telephone line, 3 is a worker office Terminal device, such as a personal computer (personal computer), which is placed in the office. In this case, the terminal device 3 includes a control unit 4 such as a microprocessor (MPU) for executing operations such as data input / output and data processing, and a hard disk (H).
D) and the like, an input unit 6 such as a keyboard, a printing unit 7 such as a printer, and a display unit 8 such as a cathode storage (CRT).
It is composed of Further, 9A 1 one purpose, which is installed in a single building A is, for example, electricity instructs meters and water usage indication meter, 9B 1, 9 Nm is further installed electrical consumption meter in another building And water usage meter.

Here, the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIGS.

[0013] When it is time to charge each owner who maintains a tenant who has a living contract with each of the buildings A to N with the electricity, water, gas, etc. used by each tenant, the terminal device 3 The input unit 6 is operated by an operator to input a data request and generate a data request command. This data request command is sent from the control unit 4 via the communication line to the usage amount integrating units 1A, 1B, 1N
Respectively.

When receiving a data request command from the terminal device 3, the usage amount accumulating section 1A divides the usage data indicated and stored in the plurality of meters of usage indicator meters 9A 1 and 9Am within the request period by use purpose. The data is transmitted to the terminal device 3 via the communication line 2. Further, the other usage amount integrating units 1B, 1
N also performs the same operation as the usage amount integrating section 1A, forms integrated usage amount data for each usage purpose, and transmits these usage usage totalized usage data to the terminal device 3 via a communication line.

When the control unit 4 of the terminal device 3 receives the series of accumulated use amount data for each purpose of use, the control unit 4 converts the integrated use amount data into an audio signal by a conversion unit (not shown) such as a modem, and then stores it in the storage unit 5. The data is transferred and stored in the storage unit 5.

Thereafter, the input section 6 is operated by the operator to perform data processing input and generate a data processing request command. When the data processing request command is issued, the control unit 4 reads the accumulated usage data for each purpose of use stored in the storage unit 5, calculates the accumulated usage fee for each tenant, and converts the data into a required print format. Process to match. Next, a print request is input to generate a print request command, and the print request is output.

Here, the method of apportioning the common use amount is set at the time of system setup, and the apportioning fluctuation value is calculated according to the ratio of the electric and other exclusive use amount in a predetermined period. The fixed apportionment value is calculated in accordance with the ratio of the area occupied by the resident. By using the apportioned fluctuation value, the usage fee for the common use area such as electricity is determined according to the usage fee for the exclusive use area, so that there is an advantage that a resident who frequently stays away does not have to pay a fixed amount every month. Conversely, by using the proportional distribution fixed value,
In the bill, since the usage fee for the common use area such as electricity is constant every month, there is an advantage that long-term residents do not feel doubt about the usage fee for the common use area that fluctuates every month.

As described above, the provision of the apportionment selection means for selecting either the apportionment variation value or the apportionment fixed value for apportioning the usage of the common area in the building enables expansion of options according to the occupant's situation. It is now possible.

FIG. 2 is an explanatory diagram showing an example of a proportional distribution method registration screen displayed on the display unit 8 in the embodiment shown in FIG. Here, a setting method of the apportioning process will be described with reference to FIGS.

At the time of setup for operating the in-building billing system, an operator performs a required operation on the input unit 6 and displays a setting screen stored in the storage unit 5 on the display unit 8. FIG. 2 shows an example at that time.

In the setting method, first, the apportionment item name is selected from a pull-down menu, and all of the partial shared units 1 to 5 and the entire building shared unit are set. At that time, it is checked whether the apportioning method is apportioned using parameters (apportioned fixed value) or apportioned based on exclusive use (apportioned variation value). When apportioning by parameter, enter the name and unit. To apportion by exclusive use, select the apportionment item name, billing status, and meter type from the pull-down menu.

The formula for calculating the shared area usage based on the apportioned variation value and apportioned fixed value set in this way is shown below.

(Proportional variation value) Common area usage = Common meter usage x (Meter meter reading value of the occupant's proprietary medium / Total meter meter reading value of the proprietary medium) (Proportional fixed value) Common area usage = Common meter Usage x (Parameter value of relevant resident / Total parameter value of all resident)

[0024]

According to the present invention, electricity, water,
Gas usage is calculated as a proportionate fixed value distributed according to the ratio of the area of each occupied area where residents of the building live, and the ratio of the amount of gas used by each occupied area where residents of the building live. And the apportionment fluctuation value distributed according to the above, it is possible to eliminate complaints and unfairness in apportioning the usage of electricity, water and gas in the common part of the building.
