Can the smart meter control my appliances?

No, SMECO’s smart meters cannot be used to control your appliances. Like SMECO’s basic digital meters, they measure whole-house energy use.

The SMECO CoolSentry program is a separate program for reducing peak demand during the summer. Customers who choose to participate in the program have a programmable thermostat or a device on the heat pump/AC outdoor unit, and they receive electric bill credits during the summer.
