Do I have the correct IHD?


Hi, I had my install yesterday. I'm trying to figure out the IHD as it wasn't explained to me. I only have basic info on it. I've looked on the boost site and all the pictures and instructions don't match up with the IHD I have. The pictures show a white IHD and completely different display. My IHD is black and totally different. Do I have the correct one? Thanks

Thanks for getting back to me. Wouldn't it be a good idea to put a guide in the box like u would have for anything that is new for a customer? I've worked out some of it myself but for someone who isn't tech minded this could be a problem.
Iv been with boost smart payg+ for about 2/3 months and my in home display is connected to my Wi-Fi?

What benefits do I get when I connect my in home display to my Wi-Fi?

Hi @Chris47790,

I've moved your post to this thread. Sounds like you have a Chameleon IHD, is that right? If so, you might find some of the above information helpful.

Hi. I'm also wondering if I have the correct IHD? The IHD I have was left by the previous tenant who was also with Ovo/Boost. Would it be possible to have operating instructions, please? 

I've worked out the basics, but want to make sure I'm using it properly, especially when usage will stop in the app. Due to the location of my meters, it's not convenient for me to check them regularly.

It's a Secure Pipit 500.

Hey @Black Scorpion

We can get you a booklet sent out so that you’re unable to understand the features of your IHD! It certainly looks like you have the correct one as it’s displaying information regarding your meters. 

Pop us a message on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll get a booklet requested for you. Don’t forget to confirm your full name, DoB, account number and/or full address.:slight_smile:

I’ve had to buy a 2nd hand chameleon IHD from ebay as in 7 years with boost/ovo,i’ve never had one.

The facebook team are out of stock of ihd’s.

Do you pair 2nd hand ones to the meters?

Had it been a boost ihd they would have tried,upon further checking i’d purchased a co-op energy one… my mistake.
