I've had a new smart meter fitted along with a Chameleon IHD - all working fine as setup by the engineer.
I've read several times on the forum of people asking how to connect their IHD to their WiFi. Do I need to do this and why?
The engineer told me that the meter connects to OVO via its SIM card and the IHD to the smart meter - no need for a wifi connection.

Updated on 05/10/20: See the info below for IHD and Wifi advice.
If you have a SMETS1 Secure Liberty smart meter with a Chameleon IHD, see this topic for your ultimate guide.
If you have a SMETS2 Aclara or Honeywell/Elster smart meter, see this SMETS2 IHD guide.
We've now removed all online features that require the IHD to be connected to your WiFi. As long as it's connected to the meter's 'Home Area Network' (HAN), your usage data will show on the device. More info on this smart kit here: https://www.ovoenergy.com/smart-meters
