With the rise of intelligent residential housing project and the implement of intelligent meter reading system, the four become the typical representative at the same time, they also become the short board of the old residential intelligent direction and constraints. As one of the four meter is an important measurement tool to save water resources. In the process of the development of society and technology, different types of meter reading methods have been derived, but there are still many problems, such as difficulty, time consuming, error copy, misreading. With the current mature image processing technology, the Internet technology and the rapid development of handheld intelligent terminal, the paper develop a meter reading system base on the Android system. The system can reduce the work intensity and the cost of meter reading, and it can make up the blank which old district and the mechanical meter reading can not be intelligent.
