At the time when the data items relevant to smart metering were included in the UNC Transportation Principal Document (TPD) Section Annex M -1, the values created for In-Home Device (IHD), i.e. ‘Installed’, ‘Declined’ and ‘Existing’ values were felt to be the only status flags required. However, subsequent to this it has become clear that in a number of cases it is not possible to provide the customer with an IHD where they wish to. The main reason for this is the set-up of Home Area Network (HAN) connectivity, a recognised problem that is being addressed through the industry projects on dual band comms hubs and Alternative HAN solutions. The current list of valid status flags do not enable these instances to be captured, and the current status options may be being misused in regards to these instances.

This CP seeks to introduce the new In Home Display Status of ‘F’ - ‘Failed IHD Asset’.
