Harness the Excellent Benefits of Smart Meters in Your Properties

More and more South African property owners and landlords are switching to smart meters for their homes and properties. There are many reasons for this, some of which we’ll touch on here. For the most part, property owners want the hassle of dealing directly with the municipality when setting up their electricity removed. In the past, consumers had to go to their municipality when moving into a property, register for water and electricity on their name, pay a deposit and wait for them to be switched on.

Thankfully, this is no longer the case, and it’s all thanks to the benefits of smart meters. Today, tenants can move into properties and start using the electricity they bought and paid for right away. There’s no need to pay a deposit and have the electricity account moved over to their names, and they oversee how much electricity they consume. There’s also no risk to the landlord of the tenants absconding with a huge electricity bill in their wake.

These are only a few of the apparent benefits of smart meters. Another advantage is the elimination need for estimated bills. In the past, municipalities sent out their technicians to do manual readings of electricity meters at people’s homes and properties. If the technician couldn’t gain access to the property, they would merely assume the amount of power consumed based on previous months’ usage. It often led to inaccuracies that cost consumers a lot of money.

Since the consumer is now in charge of buying electricity before they’re able to use it, estimated bills and inaccuracies fall away. Consumers are also aware of how much power they’re consuming in real time, which means that they get to alter their consumption habits as and how it suits them to become smarter consumers. These are only a few of the many ways in which consumers can benefit from smart meter technologies.
