Faster restoration of electricity supply in cases of electricity cuts
In case of faults the automated system will determine if there is a problem in the internal power network or a power line of the distribution system operator, thus allowing much faster identification and elimination of the problem

In order for the smart electricity meter to be able to provide all the benefits available to you, it should be connected to the power grid. For example, during the winter period when your summer cottage is not used, electricity supply should be disconnected by maintaining the meter connected (by using fuses or an within your ownership limits). If the meter is not connected to the power grid, it will not read the data remotely (it will only record them at the site) and it will not be possible to issue the bill for consumed electricity based on the actual consumption. In this case, even if electricity was not actually consumed at the site, the bill for consumed electricity will be issued based on the principle of equal payments according to the mean consumption.
