I've modified the title of your post so other users can find it if they're looking for similar information, and added some tags.
The Pipit 500 is the older version of the IHD, yes. The newer model is the Chameleon but this hasn't been fully rolled out yet. Some customer were involved in the beta testing, and it's reached a couple of regions for people having smart meter exchanges.
The Chameleon does have a 'gateway' feature, meaning it can connect to your wifi to give live usage data. Unfortunately this isn't a feature on the Pipit 500.
It's still possible to get really up to date usage data with the Pipit device and your online account though! If you've selected to be on 30 minute readings, you can see up to date usage in 30 minute chunks, which will update throughout the day.
If you're not on 30 minute readings, we can update it for you if you get in touch with us on Facebook or Twitter.
