@ Le Démerdeur: not so shocking, the telecom infrastructure was almost non-existent in those days. More or less the dumb meter discussion in a blog with Alain Bazot, director of QueChoisir.

Well I'm guessing they learnt from that as most of the Linkys I've seen seem to work ..to the extent that OH, who was in UK , was able to tell me that he knew I hadn't done much cooking while he was away as he'd checked on the app and found I had hardly used any electric at all since he's been away.

ho spoke to me of a very good advantage of the Linky that I hadn't thought of, the ability to calculate from afar precisely how much electricity a short term renter has used during their stay.

Many rentals include so many kwh's and above that are chargeable at the Enedis rate, others charge it in addition, its a great bonus to be able to get those figures from afar.

Who has been taking you out to eat while he was away? :lol:

Just caught the end of a news item where it was suggested that Linky had been responsible for a house fire. In the Aquitaine region.
