Please note that this device is for SMETS1 meters but we will launch a version for SMETS2 meters by summer.
If you would like to check the compatibility of your Smart Meters, please get in touch.
The Glow Stick is Zigbee 1.1b certified, working with Foundation and SMETS1 meters as well as using the latest SSL technology for secure Internet communications.
Use our Bright App to view your consumption. If you like to work with data API access is available automatically using your Bright App credentials (further information available). User setup, security, data and device management functions are in-built in so that you can focus on the application.
Important This unit works for people whose SMETS1 meters have been enrolled/migrated to the DCC; if your meters were 'dumb' and have become 'smart' again, they have been enrolled. Otherwise, we currently only have stock that is compatible for Octopus customers. If you would like to pre-order a unit, please let us know.
The Bright app can be downloaded by selecting the link below as appropriate to your device:
The USB connecter is used for power only, giving you flexible options for where you install the device. If your smart meter is not that close to your home, this flexibility can be useful to get the CAD as close as possible to the meter for picking up the signal. The GlowStick can act as a Zigbee routing device, extending the range of In Home Displays (IHDs) and other smart energy devices.
If you need a USB plug, you can get one here.
