Which mans another dumb meter in the main, but the fickle govt tick box of "job done" (more like taxpayer bent over & took it) is complete, whilst you have & maintain the dumb, non-universal meter which you had back at square one! FFS


Enjoy reaping what you sow. (y) & your extremely cold "deal".


Just because I don't write an essay does not mean my opinion is invalid. It's a free £25 for the customer. I don't care what SSE plan to do with the data or how much money the government has wasted on the initiative.


*IF* these things are supposed to save an reported "average" of anything from £24 - £47 per annum per household (by means of reduced energy use) then the costs based on 2017-2018 figures of £420 per unit per household (& rising significantly) So if we take a medium return approach of £30 savings per household then the time to balance out the cost of the unit would be around 14 years after installation to achieve the break even point, ..but that was before the massive contract to "promote" ( latest push) the smart meters.. which has been going around a year now (by estimation) & I think that is in excess of 60 million pounds as a contract! its an open for re-jigging the numbers. But 14 years to break even? ..compared to added insulatin which reduces energy use, & starts paying back instantly, (phenolic foil sided foams help keep heat in & help in summer by means of cooler during summer as there isnt so much hot air leaching from your walls / loft where high temps occur & make your abode stuffier. Thats before we even get to reducing energy by use of a small ASHP in a well insulated & sealed home, (abut £1400) with potential to really hammer down energy costs (except for brutal winter temps when its better to use a secondary source because the ruddy thing is running on defrost cycle ..i'd prefer a lump sum towards unding an ASHP etc & £420 would be a good chunk) The only "smart" monitoring meter I would have is a new gen electric vehicle point, that still allows me to have a full battery in the morning when needed, ..or I can simply trickle charge it like now, off a 3 pin plug, slow & steady.However, I can already set a simple timer from my phone to delay, fill to 80% 100% & so on, therefore unless I wish to totally give up my info to the fallibility of energy companies & potentially have grid swap (battery to grid cycling) then this is of very little benefit to anyone, besides it also then adds towards wearing down my battery prematurely. If I can add a heat pump then *half* the time my energy would be less anyway) ie job done via cop values in theory, saving a lot more than £30 or so quid, I anticipate payback time would be comfortable 2 years to break even whilst updating existing insulation & airleaks

No a "Smart meter" will not save you money by itself . It "should " help save you money by encouraging you to switch things off or turn heating down etc. It should also not cost you more as your bills depend ONLY on your tariff and usage , not on the meter/s that are measuring that usage . We are already paying £billions for these meters to be fitted in our bills (regardless of whether we have one fitted ) . I have fitted an energy monitor like this:,aps,160&sr=8-6 Seems expensive now ,but got mine 8 or 9 years ago from EON for £7.99 (sender just clips over the meter supply and display sits on the mantlepiece) and it does show me when I leave the oven on etc. So I'm not against what "Smart" meters do ,but against what the energy companies could do with them . There are too many urban myths (good and bad ) around these meters so stay well clear is my advice . Roll out was supposed to be complete by 2019 , then 2020 (when suppliers will face fines for not installing their quota , Really !?! ) "Technical problems" are apparently behind the delay :/ and will NOT be resolved by 2020 or even 2022 . The "reprogramming of SMETS 1 meters to SMETS 2 meters is simply "aspirational hogwash" and will only be possible with a small percentage of the newer SMETS 1 meters . "Think" reprogramming an I Phone to become an Android phone . As @J4GG4 commented this was promised 2 years ago but has yet to materialise . Differential (sometimes called Variable ) pricing is my main worry . This means the energy company could vary your unit prices dependant upon your historical usage (raising them when you use the most ) probably modified by a simple algorithm dependant upon when there is excess capacity in the system ( a Smart Economy 7 if you like) . They will , of course present this as a "Discount " as times you use the least energy will cost less per unit ! Another reason Differential pricing will hurt the consumer is that switch sites will be unable to give accurate comparisons as individual consumers will be only different rates at different times of the day , for different periods depending on their habitual usage (which the energy companies will obviously know and exploit ) . Additionally many smaller energy companies will not have the technology to join in the fun ,so many will simply disappear ,thus cutting down competition . Sorry for the long Saturday essay , a difficult read I know . However it is important that consumers understand the advantages and disadvantages of these meters . Too many , as displayed by some comments on this thread , are misinformed on this very important subject or believe the aspirational hogwash put out by the energy companies and the Government (about reprogramming SMETS1 meters and a completion date of 2020 (shock) ) not to mention the Urban myths doing the rounds .


And there’s your problem, make sure you switch as soon as your rate ends if not you will be paying more and rates will still go up. Our fix ends in May we were on such a good deal that we will pay £300 more next year even if we switch to the next cheapest rate. Nothing to do with the meter just priced going up.


From MSE:


Thanks for your advice , it’s appreciated....I understand it’s the smart meter that counts the usage but so do the older meters. It’s not just one person who has had a smart meter installed that complains about price increase, it’s every household that has had it installed that has had their bills increased. Now every smart meter cannot be faulty. I think in my case most likely is they’ve switched me over from a fixed tariff which we was on for the past 4 years plus to a variable tariff. All previous bills were based on actual meter readings taken so no way we were under charged. In fact we were paying more monthly than our families and friends which led us to installing a smart meter.


It is a shambles and clearly wasn't thought through enough before they rolled out. But everything that I've read suggests that the first gen can be updated to the second gen and will be according to the government. Whether that's via SW or hw I don't know. Lots of info here...

Hi please can you let me know details of fitting engineer you used for installing your boiler?


I saw that, A day of two later. By then it was a bit late.


Thanks for our comment. The link to eco scheme from npower does not work anymore.


I went with home serve, got them on a discount so worked out competitive compared to others local or otherwise (7 other quotes in total) had a couple of minor hiccups but they have been really good with the after service as well


Another recommendation for Boxt here too - I couldn't find anyone locally to beat their price and the service from the installer was fantastic. The whole process was dead easy and we had our new boiler the next week (and it only took that long because there was a £120 saving for delaying the install a few days as opposed to having it next day - we didn't mind waiting so got the extra). There's some hefty cashback on topcashback (£110 I think), plus a £50 refer a friend amazon gift card too. On top of that we got £200 back from Worcester Bosch for replacing an existing Worcester boiler. Boxt also include a smart thermometer (Honeywell T6 - works fine with Alexa etc - I'm now selling the Hive I picked up but hadn't opened on Black Friday) a system cleanse and a filter which the independents didn't.

Unflattering report on Ovo


Agree with And1Split’s comment above. I used uswitch to compare and didn’t go with the absolute cheapest. Opted for Bulb based on reviews etc and a very happy customer one year on. The key is to compare unit charges and not go by estimates of what different providers think the energy will cost you each month. They also offer a £50 referral credit similar to some other suppliers. Any questions on Bulb or if you would like a referral, feel free to send me a private message.


OVO installed a meter at my house about 3-4 years ago, however there was a technical error and unknown to me the bills were being generated wrong, I contacted them as there was an error showing on the website and it wouldn't let me increase my DD. I noticed there was a section on the website where you can view an estimated bill and I was shocked to see it said £1700, I called and they told me my bills had been undervalued the whole time I had been with them and as per ofgen rules they can only send me a correct bill for 1 years electricity usage, I use roughly £20-£30 of electricity a month so thought it would be around £400 ish, I had £150 credit in my account so I was thinking £250 its not great but wont be too bad, they actually decided the £150 in my account was legally there's to take and put my account to -£700, I emailed them to recalculate and they replied 5-7 days later saying its correct and there's nothing I can do, I replied asking if I could have any compensation as it will be difficult to pay off, they said they don't have to as they have done the legal minimum, so now because I cant pay off at once I'm stuck paying £150 a month to pay off the debt slowly, once its payed off I'm switching, unfortunately I cant say I would recommend OVO to anyone. Bottom line is any money they direct debit from you is there's to keep should you find any issues with your account even if the billing issue is over a year, had I know I probably wouldn't had any saved in my account,


Best customer care I have ever seen but unfortunately not competitive on price now


They will not let you drop thousands on it. The T&Cs do mention that if you are found abusing it, they would automatically trigger a refund and would disable the benefit. My house gets pretty cold during the winter months and my last bill for electricity and gas was £211 (ouch..). My recommended direct debit is £135 but I set it up at £200 to ensure that I stay in credit. Also, it is worth mentioning that there is also another bonus that is the self-service reward when doing everything online and paying at least the recommended amount by DD: £7.50 per fuel/per quarter so a potential £60 off for the year.

I personally use it for an hour + before work. Usually i stand it on my table next to my chair while i check my emails or read my course books for work etc. If i dont have much free time i stand it closer (on the arm of my chair) and use for 20/30 mins. The closer it is the more powerful it is so less exposure time is needed.


How long do you use it for, every day ?


I think it's also aimed at those that don't see much sun light e.g. Office workers doing long hours, coal miners, maybe even Dracula ..... 8)

You only need a plug shape adaptor to use in India. They use 220v 50hz, UK items will work without issue. The advise above is incorrect.


I purchased one for £79 on black Friday from Amazon. I also tried the Pressure King Pro and there are lots of cheaper ones. However the IP is really well made, specifically the inner stainless steel pot which can be put on a hotplate with the lid on. I have a second inner pot so I can then cook more things for the same meal and of course you can get inner stackable pans as another accessory to cook multiple things at the same time. I haven't stopped using it every day since then and my wife loves that I now do most of the cooking :)


May be you are right and I dnt want to sound like an advocate for IP but I have boiled 6 eggs today in IP in 5-7mins and have made porridge in the past (with no stirring or baby sitting) in 10mins.


Also I got all my accessories online either from amazon or ebay but some here and some in USA.


The price isn't too bad if I'm honest.. And about cooking foods that need same cooking times.. You will get more confident as you use it more and understand how to find a happy medium. For example if I cook dal in one box rice in other and dry veg curry in third, I know dal needs more time so I will either soak it for few mins bef cooking or use hot water from kettle to make the cooking faster. All three things cook in 15 mins and no clean up at all other than the 3 boxes. Happy days!

That’s not how science works. But.....some key words for you, low quality of evidence, evidence very low, poor samples etc they are being polite I read some of those paper and they are atrocious! Personally I think there could be a benefit hence my interest, the reason I was hoping to find a credible paper is specs required or should I consider building one. However if it’s all placebo, and it certainly looks that way to me then I will save my time.


Lets turn this on its head. Have you got any proof that light therapy does not work and is of zero benefit?


Errrr that not empirical evidence lol glad the placebo is working for you.

Quick update after an email sent from Uswitch following the order "As of 11 December 2018, your personal projection (est. annual cost) for the British Gas's Energy Plus Protection Jan 2020 plan is £930.18. This is based on consumption figures of 2330 kWh for electricity and 12384 kWh for gas" My actual gas consumption was 9738 kwh. British gas are quoting me £1109 based on my previous consumption for the next best tariff that you can get directly through them. So baring in mind Uswitch are putting an extra 2500 kwh of gas onto that £930 anyone on any tariff ending soon with BG is worth flipping over to this if you don't want to switch providers.


Smaller companies will always be cheaper to start off with but will eventually rack up the prices but not the service. I think i've called British Gas services once in 3 years, unless you're not paying for what you use or can't afford what you use then I can't quite grasp why people would want to call them.


I've applied for it and i'm with them, when you go through the process it will ask you for your existing account number.


Agree we were with Outfox until they announced the massive price increase, switched to Utility Point as came out cheapest on Cheap Energy Club, fixed price for 12 months.


their cs is so bad they probably try and sell you gas and electricity.

Really angry, hive plug received, but can't use the Actions as my hive hub is not the newer version. When ordering from website it just asks if you have hive or not, not if you have the old hub or not (mad) . Called up hive and they just said I needed to buy the newer hub for £40 and sorry about the website making order just the plug instead of the plug and hub which I've lost out on. Anyone got a spare hub for sale at a reasonable price ?


(I have PRO version of) this; (Some have help from Tasker) Overlays


Ah nice work, how did you get those lock screen widgets/shortcuts? Is that Tasker creating them? Unsurprisingly the Hive App doesn't support widgets for the Smart Plugs.


Absolutely This is my lock screen with 3 Plugs, 3 lights and hub plus I have other Applets within IFTTT and coupled with Tasker to do most stuff I find useful.


Anyone had any luck with integrating their plug with IFTTT or Tasker? Or maybe someone's managed to find a way to change the firmware to remove the need for the hub?
