Hi Folks


Just a quick one My Electric meter is in a basement below ground level and Gas meter in a Plastic box outside on wall approx 5 feet distance wise from electric meter.


What impact will this have with signal and comunication to the IHD and communicating signal wise for meter readings.


Yes i know about SMETZ2 so no provebial rashtag about how wonderful this is question is merely regarding signal issue with electric meter loacation.

Re: Smart meter location issue

@BlackDragon   The electric meter does all the communication.  It needs a mobile phone signal to SP and it needs to be within about 5 metres from your display unit and the gas meter. It might be your property is simply unsuitable for a smart meter.   The installers will test the signals but if you have not decided yet, do not bother.
