Re: Reading my smart meter

Installers should always tell customers how to read their new meters and use their IHD display, but do they? No.

Re: Reading my smart meter

Hi Norm, Two things to try: The Ovo website for FAQs about their meters. And then you could note the manufacturer's name and model number and google for instructions.   Also try taking a phone video of the fast scrolling numbers and see which ones fit closely to your last day and night meter readings from your OVO bills.

Re: Reading my smart meter

Just switched from Toto to SP. I too have found the IHD provided by Toto user unfriendly. It should be a simple thing to show meter readings and kwh's used since a previous date. Instead it provides me with information I have little or no interest in. I have resorted to collecting my own readings which kind of defeats the whole purpose. Hopefully SP will provide me with a new IHD that is more programmable. V.C.

Re: Reading my smart meter
Hi Scot. Nope SP will not give a new IHD it would not work with your meters. Have a look online for the right buttons to get a meter reading. I’m sure there are instructions on your old suppliers website. Otherwise read the real meters and make sure to send in the data to SP.

Re: Reading my smart meter

Know what you mean about smart meters I hate them Each time I have been asked for my meter readings I have inputted them into the web site, but then I'm told there wrong Just inputted the ones today and its accepted them I'm now concerned I have read the meters wrong  as it did ask if they right, but when you have nothing to go by what else can you do but say yes? Terrified now that I am going to have a massive wrong bill Especially  when I was with this company on a temporary basis   Besides I thought installing smart meters ment you didn't need to read them anymore Yet more political clap trap it seems Just a waste of money

Re: Reading my smart meter

Hi Didi, Have a look at one of your old bills, it will show what the readings used to be, and your new readings should be in roughly the same range but higher than before. If the numbers are massively different then you probably have done it wrong and you need to contact SP and explain what the readings should be 0800 027 0072

Re: Reading my smart meter

Hi. I am glad you knew about the 9 button. If it scrolls fast try a quick jab, maybe holding it down gives all the other readings. Otherwise get a teenager to help you, I am a pensioner as well haha.
