Abstract

A dynamic self-configuring system for collecting metering data comprises a collector meter (116). The collector transmits instructions to the level one meters to scan for meters that are operable to directly communicate with the level one meters. The collector registers meters that respond as level two meters. A qualification threshold used in the registration process is adjustable.
