My meter is a Secure Liberty 100 - fitted on 1st June this year by SMS on behalf of Octopus when they decided a SMETS2 wouldn't have enough signal strength.
Further confirmation, you should certainly be ok with that make of SMETS1 meter. Octopus state........
However, if you follow the link on that page to their FAQslots of other good smart meter info on their page here......
What is a smart meter? Should you get one? What are the benefits? How can Octopus customers get them installed? Here’s everything you need to know about going smart with Octopus Energy.octopus.energy
It’s interesting that they also state if SMETS2 signal isn’t available, they can still fit a Secure brand SMETS1 meter! I am surprised as I thought I read somewhere else that installing SMETS1 was forbidden after a Certain date. Maybe the rules have changed since I read that. It was a year or two since I recall reading it.
Mine is showing -24dBmIn area 11 you are with Arqiva on LRR transmission, not sure what you can do if no reception but mine is about 30dBm
It's usual OK but they don't always work.
ISTR seeing a note on the Octopus website explaining that some 'Secure' brand meters can be adopted but others cannot - it all depends on which company originally supplied it (& presumably on how it was programmed)It's usual OK but they don't always work.
I switched with a secure liberty 100 and after several weeks they decided they needed to fit a new smets 2
Not heard of it until until you mentioned it. There seems to be a thread about it on here but the thread fizzled out 11 months since It appears it is (or was?) an experimental trial. Seems like a good idea if it’s viable for them.Has anyone received any invites to the GO Faster tariff, where you can choose your 3, 4, 5 hours cheap energy slot
You have to email or phone them once your on the standard Go tariff & they send you a link to apply for it, then they get back to you if the time slot you want is available 🙂Has anyone received any invites to the GO Faster tariff, where you can choose your 3, 4, 5 hours cheap energy slot
I just Twitter them and then I received an email to invite me to the Go Faster tariff, I have now switched with my 4 hours cheap energy starting from 20:30 😃😃You have to email or phone them once your on the standard Go tariff & they send you a link to apply for it, then they get back to you if the time slot you want is available 🙂
Yes I had a great selection of times and how longs you wanted the cheap rate, ranging from 3 hours to 5 hours, I kept with the 4 as this was sufficient for meThat’s great to hear! Did they give a choice of times? I’d love 5 hours from 20:30 or 21:00 at 5.5p. I wonder if it’s different in different areas?
I've fired off an enquiry email just now.
