Photograph meater reading

How do you use the camera to take pictures of the meter? There’s just no button in the app to take the pic add that to the fact it doesn’t keep the numbers on the screen for very long
Help I’m getting frustrated with it !!

Use a pen and a piece of paper to write the numbers down. Then manually type them in.

Taking photos and doing OCR is just a pointless gimmick, as you’ve discovered. And to think Bulb have devoted developer time to this rubbish! It’s not like they’ve got nothing else to work on …

The android version has a mixed bag of reliability.

I’ve had it successfully take pictures of my meter and send in the correct reading.

You can manually alter it if it isnt too bad. I used to take pictures with my phone camera and manually add the readings anyway.
