(smart) LEGAL meter

It is not just another gadget


sealed
It is the legal reference for billing
It passes conformance tests
It is mostly outside the dwelling
certified

Every new version of non-legally relevant software would need to pass WELMEC7,
Extension 7, test on software separation for customer protection reasons.
Is it a competitive platform for Home IT services business?
