Electricity Advisor is compatbile with most smart meters in Australia. Find your supported smart meter below to locate your meter’s impulse rate, and where to attach your Electricity Advisor self adhesive plastic mount:
Landis + Gyr
PRI / Secure
Some smart meters, including EDMI, don’t display the impulse rate so you may need to test your meter to find the correct impulse rate.
Install your Electricity Advisor on your meter’s impulse rate light. This light indicates your electricity consumption. The light’s location will vary depending on your meter type. On an EDMI meter it is usually indicated as pulse 1.
Choose an appliance such as a kettle which consumes a constant amount of electricity. When the kettle is turned on your usage should increase by approximatly 2kW.
Enter 1000 imp/KWH in the impulse rate settings on the app. The usage should increase by 2kW (2000W) when the kettle is turned on.
If the usage only increases by 1kW (1000W) you will need to change the impulse rate settings in the app to 500.
If the usage only increases by 0.2kW (200W) you will need to change the impulse rate settings in the app to 100.

Electricity Advisor works with most solar smart meters.
Check your meter at midday on a sunny day. It is compatible if the pulse 1 light stops flashing while your solar system is exporting to the grid. If the pulse 1 light flashes while your solar system is exporting to the grid the meter is NOT compatible with the Electricity Advisor.
The Electricity Advisor is designed for home use and is not recommended for commercial use.
There may be compatibility issues due to the settings used on commercial meters which could result in incorrect readings.
