Why Are In-Home Displays No Longer Effective?


In-Home Display (IHD) helps to track your power consumption, but they are no longer effective. 

This blog post explains why IHDs are no longer effective and how the Hugo App is a superior in-home display for you.


What is an In-Home Display (IHD)?

In-home displays (IHD) are devices that show you how much energy your home is using in real time. IHDs can be either standalone devices or apps that work with your smart meter.



Why is IHD No Longer Effective?


1. Often Inaccurate


Most IHDs on the market are not as accurate as they should be, which can lead to frustration when trying to save energy. Accuracy is important because it allows you to make informed decisions about how to reduce your energy consumption. If your IHD tells you that you are using more energy than you actually are, you may end up wasting money on unnecessary energy-saving measures.


Hugo Smart Meter App is different because it uses your smart meter’s data to provide you with the most accurate information possible. This means that you can trust Hugo to help you make informed decisions about your energy usage.


2. Not All Information You Need is Displayed


Many IHDs only show you a limited amount of information about your energy usage. This can make it difficult to understand where your energy is going and how you can save money. An IHD displays data like electricity use in kilowatts (kWh) or gas use in cubic meters (m³), and the cost of the energy used.


Hugo Smart Meter App provides you with detailed information about your energy usage so that you can easily understand where your money is going. Additionally, Hugo displays your energy usage in both £ and kWh, as well as tips on how to save money.


3. Budget has No Role in IHD


Most IHDs on the market do not allow you to set a budget for your energy usage. This can be problematic because it is difficult to save money if you do not know how much you are spending.


Hugo Smart Meter App allows you to set yearly, monthly and daily budgets for your energy usage. This way, you can easily track your progress and make sure that you are staying within your budget. Additionally, Hugo will send you notifications if you are close to exceeding your budget.


4. Needs Extra Electricity


To run an IHD, you always need to plug it in. This can be a problem because it means that you are using extra electricity, which can offset any savings you may be hoping to achieve. Even if it is very less energy, it is still energy that you are using which you could avoid.


Hugo Smart Meter App runs on your mobile phone, which you can carry with you anywhere. This means that you are not using any extra electricity to run the app. Additionally, Hugo is designed to be as energy-efficient as possible, so you can be sure that you are not wasting any electricity by using the app.


In conclusion, if you are looking for an IHD that is accurate, informative and budget-friendly, look no further than Hugo Smart Meter App. Hugo was designed with your needs in mind, and it is the superior choice for an IHD.
