CAD for SMETS1 Smart Meters
A low cost, Wifi enabled consumer access device (CAD) to bridge smart metering with value added services designed to benefit you, the energy consumer.
- Real time electricity and gas monitoring through our Bright app, API and MQTT (on request)
- Easy to install - 'plug and play'
- Energy monitoring while outside the home
- No wires, no cables
- UK SMETS1 compliant
Please note that this device is for SMETS1 meters. Our SMETS2 CAD without display is due to be launched in April 2022 (with a different form factor); if you would like to go onto the SMETS2 CAD waiting list, please let us know.
If your SMETS1 meters are replaced by your supplier with SMETS2 meters, the unit will no longer function because there are SMETS1 certificates on it which can only connect to SMETS1 meters.
Important This unit also 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. You can test this by downloading Bright (see below) and going through the verification process - if you pass, your meters have been enrolled. If your meters have not been enrolled, our remaining stock only works for customers on supply with Octopus who have Secure Meters.
The Glow Stick is Zigbee 1.1b certified 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. MQTT data is available on request, one you have the unit set up - send an email and we will set up MQTT.
The Bright app is available here:
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.
