WEL Energy in Hamilton is now installing what it calls a “smart box” on properties in the city and environs.  The “smart box” is another wireless  device which communicates remotely with WEL Energy.  Reports from Hamilton indicate that this  new technology is being installed on properties that have already had “smart meters” installed.

You can read what WEL has to say about its “smart box” programme on the company’s website at this link:

for an example of how one Hamilton resident stopped the company installing this device.
