At the property's electricity meter

  1. Take the transmitter and its OptiSmart reader to the property’s electricity meter. On the electricity meter, locate the flashing red LED labeled ‘kWh’. Ignore any other flashing or steady LED’s. Clean the area thoroughly around the correct flashing LED using a dry paper tissue.
  2. Take the supplied adhesive base and remove the paper backing. Carefully align the hole in the circle so that the flashing LED shines clearly through the hole, and stick the base to the electricity meter. When you are happy that it is aligned, apply firm pressure to fix the adhesive.
  3. Put the transmitter in a convenient place clear of metal surfaces, where its radio antenna can work effectively.
  4. Take the OptiSmart reader, which is plugged into the transmitter, and carefully place it over the base. When the alignment is correct, the LED inside the optical reader will flash at the same time as the one on the electricity meter.
