Your smart meters come with an in-home display that lets you monitor your energy use. You don't actually 'read' the smart meter as it automatically sends meter readings to us. Instead, you can keep an eye on your in-home display to understand how you're using your energy:
- The traffic light system will glow green when you’re using less energy and red when you’re using more,
- You can switch between gas and electricity at the touch of a button, to see exactly how much you’re using of each,
- Your display will show how much you’re likely to spend on electricity in an hour if you continue using the same electrical items, so you can make adjustments as needed.
There are different types of in-home displays and we're currently installing Chameleon 3 and Geo Trio. If you'd like to know more on how to use your smart meter in-home displays, see our user guides below.
