Re: The Need For Speed
I can see a lot of comments on here about Smart Meters going nowhere near their network. Smart Meters use ZigBee to communicate with the little in-house display gadgets and don't go anywhere near your home network to be fair. They use HAN/ZigBee to talk to other smart meter(s) nearby. The WAN side is over the mobile network for connectivity, so SmartMeter's are the exception to the IoT drama for now, although I believe they would like to tap into dishwashers/dryers/washing machines/fridges etc in the future via ZigBee and whatnot to utilise surplus energy.
