    Reading a smart meter - EDMI ATLAS Mk7B 7th Mar 18 at 10:02 AM
    Hi,


    Can any meter readers help out.
    I'm trying to switch suppliers and have been asked for a meter reading. The meter is an EDMI ATLAS Mk7B Smart Meter, and there are loads of menus to scroll thru. I cant figure out which is the actual reading that I need to submit.
    Thanks - Kev

    Are you business or domestic or eco 7 . In domestic with a single rate tariff first screen may show Rate 1 with 8 digits .First 5 digits up to the decimal point is the reading.
    what is displaying on the meter ?

    The one that says kWh before or after the read.

    Why cant they be like old meters? Because site managers and electrical engineeers of a commercial building need more than just consumption to date when monitoring their bills and usage.

    Also this is not a smart meter. It is a AMR remote read meter.

    It is not used in domestic situations, and will need to be changed.

    The reading from 1st Dec could be wrong though.

    This is a maximum demand meter, which isn't really suitable for domestic use so needs to be changed ASAP.

    It's likely the profile class will also need changing before you can switch to a residential tariff.

    If it is like mine; just read the meter itself, not the wi-fi screen.
