Re: Smart Meter Instructions

 My new smart meter gives readings for electricity use but seems not to be receiving gas information.  The  went in yesterday and I know it takes a little while to connect to the gas meter but after 24 hours I would have expected the connection to be made. I note that there are red buttons on the front of the gas meter.  Might these be helpful??

Re: Smart Meter Instructions

Hello Will, the red button is for you to take manual readings from the gas meter. If gas is not showing up on your display it could mean the gas meter is not paired with the electric meter. If it does not correct within a few days check to see if SP are receiving gas readings, if not send in manual readings and ask for the installer to come back. The gas meter needs to be physically quite close to the elecric meter to get a signal, if yours is not close (eg outside) you may be stuck with manual readings in the future.

Re: Smart Meter Instructions
Still not sure how to look at messages. I've opened up messages on my account on laptop but envelope symbol on smart meter still showing.
Is it possible to open message on smart meter?

Re: Smart Meter Instructions

@kazcus   You should be able to change messages in the Settings menu.  If not just turn off the IHD they are not very useful gadgets.  The meters will still send in their readings without the IHD.
