Community property management in metering and charging of resource and energy consumption, such as water, electricity and gas charging are a time-consuming, laborious, tedious and monotonous work. It also needs a large amount of computing and the computing requires high accuracy because the dispute will affect the social security easily. The current used meter reading and charging systems for resource and energy consumption of household are analyzed in this paper. The wireless automatic meter reading and charging systems are also discussed. A design scheme is proposed based on short-range wireless meter reading communication technology. The combination of CC1100 radio frequency module and GPRS network is used in the scheme. The system has the characteristics of low in price, simple in structure and good stability.
