What is a smart meter?
A smart meter (or remote management meter) is a type of electricity measurement equipment whose main function is to record actual electricity consumption readings. The big difference with a traditional meter is that the smart meter is a device that allows you to control all the information regarding consumption for any time range, automatically and remotely.
In other words, users have full control over their energy expenditure, and these meters also minimise all possible annoyances and errors that may occur when making a traditional measurement (having to consult the meter, send the reading correctly, etc.).
This means that you, as a customer, can forget about sending in your readings (the smart meter does it automatically) and it also allows you to consult your consumption in detail, by the hour, and as a result, adjust it to save as much energy as possible.
In addition, these devices collect much more information and can also show other interesting information. For example, you can see the power rating that you have contracted with Endesa, your real instantaneous consumption or the reactive energy.
They also allow various procedures to be carried out quickly, such as registering or cancelling a connection, managing cut-offs and reconnections, controlling your power rating or changing the rates that apply.
