All Victorian households are eligible to get a free In-home display installed in their home under the VEU program. Though, there are the following conditions that a Victorian resident need to meet before applying for a free In-home display unit and installation:
a) You have a residential property, and you haven’t already installed an In-home display. Commercial properties are not eligible for free In-home display installation.

c) You are a registered property owner.
Smart meters, also known as type 4 meters, is a digital electricity consumption measuring device that measures and records electricity units consumed at a particular moment — in digital form.
Apart from measuring, a smart meter transmits the digitally measured data to your energy retailer — eliminating the need to manually check and log the consumption data.
While a smart meter records detailed consumption data, a consumer can only access the data through a third party. In-home display makes it incredibly easy to access and visualize the data on your phone or computer screen.
In-home display is your window to your electricity consumption. Just hook up your smart meter with In-home display, and you’ll be able to:
1. Reduce your electricity usage by checking which are the most watts-guzzling appliances
2. Set a daily/monthly/weekly energy budget to track the usage
3. Check historical and real-time energy usage report.
4. Check electricity consumption of individual appliances — by switching appliances one by one
while tracking the increase in kilo-watt-hour number on your IHD
5. Get alerts when your energy usage crosses a set threshold
6. Understand how, where, and when you could make smart choices that will save electricity and
