How Do Smart Meters Work?

All smart metering systems generally consist of two parts.

One, the actual meters which replace the traditional gas and electricity meters. The second is a flat screen display, which is usually a portable screen, or it can be fixed to a certain position – which reveals how much gas and electricity a property is using and how much the usage will end up costing.

Both parts of the system work together to ensure that users receive accurate information about their energy use in real-time and the smart meter will automatically share these readings with the properties' gas or electricity supplier, which helps to ensure that energy bills are always accurate.

A smart meter has enhanced communication capabilities and takes meter readings wirelessly through a robust and secure network and it will dispatch gas readings every half-hour and electricity readings every ten-seconds to the smart meter display. Users also have the option to have this data sent to their energy supplier at monthly, daily, or even half hourly intervals, which has even greater benefits.

Smart Metering

At first glance a smart meter doesn't look a whole different from a current meter.

Smart meters function like a traditional meter does, meaning that it will just measure household energy use over time.

Looking at the big picture, smart meters are the foundation for updating the existing electric system into a smart grid because because they allow two-way communication, between the meter and the supplier, through a SIM based network, like networks which are by used by people at home or at their places of work and again the information that the meters provide is specific to the energy use in a home. A current meter provides this information now, but must be read monthly. This ultimately leads to a huge amount of field work to look after reading peoples meters on their behalf. This can also lead to customers having to take time off from their work to stay in for their meters to be read by a manual employee on behalf of the supplier. This is not ideal, and Smart meters do away with all of this, creating a more accurate reading of your energy usage.

Many countries around the world have been using smart meters for years. Is is estimated that over 30 million households in the United States Of America, currently use smart meters with success.

Smart Metering Benefits For Users

  • Less power outages.
  • Provides visual indicators of power usage to users and informs them of what energy reductions and subsequent savings may be achieved.
  • Highlight the appliances that are using the most energy.
  • No need for manual meter readings.
  • Lower greenhouse emissions from power plants.
  • Mobile top up of your meters if you are on Prepayment, so not more visiting your local shop to top up then having to plug that top up into the meter.
  • Make future use of low energy tariffs, to ensure that you are using your electricity and gas at the right times
