The second most common meter is the Dial Face meter by RMC - if you have one of these, make sure it has a slot in the glass meter face where the pickup sensor can be mounted.
The Itron Plastic meter by Actaris is being rolled out in Brisbane and Perth but there still many homes in those areas with Elster V100's.
There are many different meter styles, If you cannot see your meter on the list - please take a clear photo of the face of your meter, note any model details and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will investigate and supply you with a quote for a custom system.
