    Some friends in the UK have asked me to take a meter reading from their house here. I’ve visited and the meter is different to ours and I’m not sure how to take the readings correctly. The meter is a Sagem C1000 (although it says S10C3 in very small writing on it as well). I’ve had a rummage around on the internet and haven’t been able to find anything that helps…  Thanks in advance.

    Ask your friends in the UK how they do it, but meanwhile:

    Looks like a sequence reader:

    http://www.cartelectronic.fr/documentation/sagem_C1000.pdf

    I think its explained from page 9 of the link above.

    Translation from Google:

    The SAGEM C1000 meter is equipped with a liquid crystal display which constitutes the main means of communication
    between the meter and the customer.
    It is intended to display all the information available in the meter and to allow the parameterization of its
    operating mode.
    The associated pushbuttons allow access by drop-down and cyclic menus to all data.
    The absence of action, for 60 minutes, on any one of the pushbuttons “Selection”, “Scroll” or
    “Programming” causes the display to go to sleep.
    The display being in standby mode, a pulse on one of these pushbuttons causes the immediate switch to
    normal.
    Outside the standby mode and without pressing the pushbuttons, the display always shows the tariff period in
    course and the corresponding energy index.

    I had one of those till last month (now have a Linky) – press the upper button on the right and you’ll get the figures you need.

    And check their post too, because if they’re in Valençay, they’re probably overdue to have their Linky fitted. You might be able to arrange an technicien’s visit for while you’re still there. No more meter readings after that. :good:

    Thanks for your help. As Mikej has suggested page 9 of the linked document describes how to get the power usage, which I thought looked like what I was after. The owners were here a few weeks back and didn’t mention having had any letters about changing the meter. I live about 8 km from Valencay and haven’t heard anything either. Maybe in a few years time…..

    Yep! Have just checked the calendar and the compteurs of Valençay & environs are scheduled for replacement between March & August 2021! :shock:

    Didn’t realise we were so progressive here. Makes me feel bad now that I complained about the guy being three hours late! :lol:http://www.enedis.fr/linky-bientot-chez-vous for anyone interested in knowing the when …

    That doesn’t give a date for my commune. All the neighbouring communes are covered. Just not mine!

    Living in Brittany we had ours swapped over in May 2016. There was some opposition by groups of people, even some whole communes, initially and I understand some people in our area have not yet gone ahead with the changeover.

    At present those who do not want a Linky can avoid having one installed, some from personal choice, some citing health issues.

    Some people object to the bright green colour ..

    When I insert my place’s name in the website mentioned by CelticRambler it says:

    Cette commune est gérée par une entreprise locale de distribution.

    The ENEDIS website gives only an indication. Our community in the Nièvre  is scheduled for November 2020 – April 2021. One of my neighbours got his LINKY, much to his surprise, already in August this year.

    I don’t know if I have a LINKY or not, I don’t have a meter in the house, must be in the locked white box on the edge of our property.

    Mike,

    It’s a picture of Linky, perhaps hiding in the white box on the edge of your property.  A manual in English. Might be useful if Linky cuts off your supply because you have gone over the threshold of your puissance souscrite. You’ll have to go outside to reset it.

    Is there a link for a 3 phase linky in English?
