Smart meter power usage

posted by fayess | 2 weeks ago

How much energy does the smart meter use if I have to have it plugged it in all the time?  Is it like leaving there tv on stand by?

Re: Smart meter power usage

The IHD uses about 5-10 watts, if left on a week it would burn 1 kWh, about 15 pence. You can unplug it and put it away, it is only there  to help you see what the meters record, but they work correctly without it.   It is not a smart meter it is only a monitor. It does not transmit any information.

Why does my IHD keep making lots of beeping noises? Does this often

Re: Smart meter power usage

IHDs beep to warn you that you have exceeded a budget level.  Set all your budgets to a very high level and the beeping will stop.
