How smart is a smart meter?
John Hatcher 05/03/2018 00:00:00

What does ‘smart’ mean with smart meter, smartphone, smart building?


Typically, for a meter to be considered ‘smart,’ it must be connected to the internet and utility system, and have the ability to continuously report data about its usage. I agree with my colleague that this should not really be considered “smart.” They should just be called self-reporting meters.

For example, have you ever wondered why a turbine isn’t moving even though you know it’s windy outside? A turbine is constantly reporting on the level of wind it captures. Depending on the intensity, a turbine can be shut down to avoid damage. It can also adapt and turn off depending on the quantity of generated power needed at the time. There are also connected parking garages that use sensors and lights to help guide cars to available spots. In these cases, are the connected, self-reporting meters smart? Or are we just able to make smarter estimations and take faster action because of the data they are providing?

Reporting data usage on their own is certainly ‘smart’ when compared to traditional meters, and they’re definitely convenient and useful in the sense that it’s no longer necessary to send meter readers out in inclement weather.
