    Smart Meter - Secure Liberty 100 11th Oct 17 at 11:50 AM
    I had to have my electric Smart Meter changed this week from a British Gas installed Landis Gyr, due to being faulty.

    Does any one have a Secure Liberty 100 Smart Meter where the IHD (In House Display) still works after changing energy provider which does not support smart meters yet?

    I.e changing from Britsh Gas to suppliers such as Oneselect.

    I have the Secure Liberty 100 electricity meter, mine was installed by E.ON almost a year ago. The IHD continues to display consumption information after I left E.ON earlier this year.

    I can't comment on British Gas though.

    In my case, Secure Liberty 100 installed by OVO with Secure IHD. Upon a switch to Scottish Power the meter reverted to manual and the IHD stopped working and doesn't display any information at all.

    Incidentally, to get a meter reading with this meter I press number 9 and the meter reading is then the second screen.

    Interesting, My own IHD is E.ON branded, with no mention of 'Secure' on it.
    I wonder if the difference is down to the make of IHD or the way the meter itself is configured?

    The meter should be able to display kWh usage from previous months via button 4 (See this guide, page 25 https://utilita.co.uk/downloads/SMET-User-Guide-DUAL-FUEL.pdf)

    It also has costs for previous days weeks and months on buttons 1-3 but they won't be much use with the tariff zeroed. I wonder if the live/day/week/month/year kWh info I see is actually stored in the IHD itself.


    Also, it's button 6 to do a reading if you have Economy 7, 9 just shows the combined total for meters configured that way.
