I have SMETS1 Secure Meters, and from a chat with a Bulb representative it seems that these are only partially compatible with Bulb. They are connected and sending data, but only once per day so the tab in the smartphone app won’t give the more granular view. I was also told that these meters aren’t compatible with Bulb’s In-Home-Displays either, so basically I have no way of monitoring my energy use in much detail, which is of course one of the two benefits of smart meters.
I asked if it would be possible to upgrade/replace these with newer smart meters that do work properly with Bulb, but apparently this isn’t possible as removing smart meters results in a fine. This seems a bit silly since it wouldn’t be “removing” smart meters and returning to “dumb” meters.
Do I actually have any options here?
