IHD Connectivity

Hi, I’ve just had my SMETS2 meters installed and been provided with an In Home Display (IHD). Everything seems to be working well and the IHD is connected to my home network.

Maybe I’m expecting too much, but I thought there was a PC application that would allow me to connect to my IHD and display the same data i.e. see my fuel usage on my PC. I’m guessing this isn’t possible with Bulb? Are there any plans to provide such functionality? If Bulb aren’t planning to build any Windows etc. apps, is there a standard interface (API) defined for this devices that software developers can use to access it?

See this recent discussion: https://community.bulb.co.uk/discussion/comment/34292/#Comment_34292

Thanks for the link christos_1.

Reading that, it looks like the energy business still hasn’t quite reached the 21st century in terms of providing apps on the many devices that are commonplace these days. Never mind, I’ve still got the IHD and you never know, we might get to the position where we can monitor our meters on smart phones and PC’s within the next 10 or 20 years :wink:
