I have just had a smart meter and IHD fitted - it’s an IHD3. I can see how to see my live electricity usage (ie electricity now button).

However, is it possible to see how much gas is being used live?

Thanks

Hi @zhair and welcome to the Forum.

That’s a good question…. to which the answer is “no, unfortunately not!

The Smart Gas Meter has an inbuilt battery with a lifetime expectancy of 10 years. In order to conserve power it keeps the lcd display switched off, and only wakes up the transmitter to your Communications Hub once every 30 minutes.

So your IHD is only able to display gas usage to the last half-hour internal when the data was sent.

Please ask here again if you’d like further clarification.

And have a look at this Topic all about Smart Meters and their installation.
