Smart Meters are the latest accurate devices to measure gas and electricity usage. Primary Benefits of fitting a smart meter:
- Automatic Meter Readings
- Visible display showing you cost of energy as you go
- Real Time rather than estimated bills
There are currently 2 meter types SMETS1 and the latest model SMETS2. The current planning is for the older smart meters to get a software upgrade to bring them in line with the modern meters. They are not mandatory and you do not require an internet connection.
For most businesses Smart Metering is not sufficient as more detailed by the second information is required. Equally there are lots of businesses who want to monitor their processes and flow management of gas, electricity and water from their various meters. In these situations we recommend Smart Monitoring as the way forward to provide accurate energy management insights.
