British Gas smart meter devices to become a free touch screen

Tue Sep 05, 2017 6:54 am

Has anyone been able to hack one of the British Gas smart meter devices to become a free touch screen for the pi? (ecometer / p450 by Landis Gyr)? Seems like it would be ideal, just not sure where to start.

Interesting, I have one. Of course shortly after they installed my smart meter (still don't understand the smart part of it, more and electronic datalogger, I cannot actually do anything else other than log data).

But the last two energy providers cannot use it so it never used now and the time is well out of sync.

So may as well repurpose it ;-)
