Hiya, i’ve just switched to Bulb (well, it’s about to happen… few more days before Bulb takes over my supply officially)
I’ve just moved into my house and will be ripping out all the electrics next month to replace them and figured it would be a good time to wire the place up ready for SmartHome kit and automation etc. Just wondering 2 things:
- What sort of technology does the Smart Meter use? IE - does it use Z-wave? Just so I know what kit to be buying to make everything compatible. Don’t know a huge amount of stuff about smart homes (yet) but from what i’ve read it all needs to be able to talk to each other.
- Can I get on the trial for a smart meter? Can’t imagine a smart home without one.
- I’ve read that you’re waiting until next year for new tech to be available - will the smart meter do anything more than just monitor energy use? Pointless buying stuff that the smart meter will cover when it arrives.
