Small gadgets making a big difference
At Zenelgie we love discovering exciting new technologies which change the way we interact with things and ultimately, make life easier and more enjoyable for our customers and power suppliers.
From wireless controlled power and charging of your electric car, to instant boiling water and a smoke alarm that talks to you, smart technology is all about small devices and gadgets that fit into your everyday lifestyle to make a big difference in ways you may never have imagined. Some can even be monitored and controlled by your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
Our indepth understanding of the unresolved difficulties facing power distribution companies in effectively meeting the pace of eliminating estimated billings with smart metering deployments brought about the expansion of our services area to support power suppliers as “special intervention” approach to facilitate smart metering deployments and installations to enable most electricity consumers quickly break away from estimated billings and to access `real-time` information about their energy usage and cost savings.” We provide unequal services to power suppliers through special contractual arrangements to outsource, distribute and supply smart metering and monitoring systems and devices, undertake installations and help to access funding requirements where identified as major bottleneck in timely resolving smart metering supply and distribution obligations to their vast network of connected end-user customers.
Smart Meters Explained
Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being installed by energy suppliers.
Smart meters come with an in-home display screen that show you exactly how much energy you are using in pounds and pence, in near real time and will bring an end to estimated bills.
Smart meters measure how much gas and electricity you’re using, as well as what it’s costing you, and display this in on a handy in-home display.
With a smart meter, you can wave goodbye to complicated meter readings. The smart meter shows a digital meter reading and automatically sends the reading to your energy supplier at least once a month, so you will receive accurate, not estimated, bills.
Inside your home, smart meters use their own secure, wireless network using radio waves, just like mobile phones or TVs do. Smart meters don’t use the internet to send or receive data and you don’t need an internet connection for it to work.
Your smart meters will link to a similar wireless network outside your home. This network is run by the Data Communications Company.
There are strict new regulations and codes of practice to keep smart meter data private, secure and safe.
Why settle for an estimated bill?
There are so many things you wouldn’t want to estimate in life. The final score in your favourite sport, your wedding dress measurements, your weekly shop. So why would you want an estimated energy bill?
This means the end of estimated bills. No more having to read the meter or trying to work out your bill. No more strangers coming into your home for meter readings.
Once you have a smart meter, you’ll only get accurate bills from your energy supplier, just as you do with your phone bill.
With your smart meter, you’ll also get an easy-to-understand portable display that shows you exactly what you’re spending and in near real time. This means you can work out which appliances are guzzling the most energy. Or show the kids the difference it can make when they remember to turn the lights off.
