Inaccuracies - but not Hugo’s Fault

Update - after review below Hugo got in touch and investigated the issues with the meter readings. Identified that meter has an issue and have reported on my behalf to the Data Communications Company in the hope that Eon will change them.

Only lost one star as it’s not possible Le to zoom in on the graphs making the 30min reads difficult to select to see each level.

Original - Not sure how or why, but this app and others like it seem to provide a different set of readings - talking about elec rather than gas. As gas meter has issue and won’t connect to the app and neither meter is not sending data to supplier - yet electric seems to report to here. How can two companies that say they use same data set of kWh use be different? And so very different from the readings in my meter. Manual readings show that I used exactly 11kwh on Sunday. This app shows 21kwh and another shows 18kwh. My meter ‘maybe’ reporting incorrectly to the DCC, but then why the different values to another app?? Engineers are coming to see meters the next few days to get gas working and will report this issue too to see if there’s a higher problem. Would rather not have the higher values being reported to supplier - they’ll double my bill.

Hi Tobias,
Glad we could help. You know you can zoom in on the graph by selecting the multi select button then highlighting the half hour period.

Great time series data

This App does everything my multibillion pound energy company seems incapable of. It gives time series data on gas and electricity usage over 24 hrs (in half hour intervals), day, week, month, year. Clear and accurate you can manage your usage down especially if you get a smart plug (I have TP link for £10) to go round and measure individual devices. The pivotal point here is that all smart meter data seems to be collated at a company called DCC and Hugo collects the data from there overnight. I used my credit card to verify that I’m the registered meter user and you can check the card certifying agency. This reassures you if you have concerns about using a card but it is actually beneficial as it protects your data. Great app, have showed it to friends and looking forward to a file download facility which Hugo’s quick responding service team said is on their development roadmap. Data heaven!

A great app

When I first activated the app, I did experience some difficulty having my data downloaded to the app. However a little patience leaving the app to do its thing the data finally came through. While the app certainly duplicates the house smart meter display; this app takes that information and give much deeper insights into your usage that would take hours to calculate from the smart meter. Such as projecting use/costs over 12 weeks, months, year. Pro-rata use/costs. Hourly use graphs, which possibly being beyond the app developers ability can not display the current usage. But this is the only fault, which as I have said is possibly not available to the developer.

Well done on such a great app.

Thanks for your feedback. Yes your right it is impossible to say instant data over the cloud but we feel that looking at patterns has greater value anyway. Glad your enjoying the APP. Any issues contact us at support@hugoenergyapp.co.uk
