Elster REX2 Smart Meter Teardown
The electricity meter is one device that no household connected to the grid can escape, and the technology utilized by analog meters (the most common type) dates to the late 19th century. However, engineers have recently developed a solid state electronic meter that sends electricity consumption readings wirelessly. This new meter eliminates human error and allows utility companies to monitor their systems more accurately.
The controversy surrounding the implementation prompted us to do a teardown.
