Couple of questions as we are thinking about having smart meters installed. Is it the gas and electric smart meters that transmit the meter readings to OVO or is it the IHD? And can the IHD be set to send and receive information from the meters when we want it rather than constantly transmitting data or can the IHD be switched off?

It's only the Electricity Smart Meter onto which the Communications Hub is fitted. That Comms Hub communicates with
- your gas meter
- the National Smart Meter network
- your IHD
The IHD is only for your benefit. If you decide not to use it, it will have no effect on OVO receiving your meter readings.
