How to read electricity meter


I am trying to read my electricity meter that I have at my flat. All meters arae kept in the same storage cupboard and they are marked via serial numbers.

Anyway, I have found my meter. I'm on an E7 tariff and it has one large button that changes the LCD display to "Rate 1" and "Rate 4". How do I know which is the day and which is the night rates? (Because they do not say High or Low on them).

    Check twice during the day and see which rate changes. The other rate will stay the same as it will not move till the night timescale kicks in.
