Correcting Mis-provisioned Meters

Q: We inadvertently provisioned a single-register meter as a compound meter. How can we correct this?

A: To manually change a single-register meter that was incorrectly provisioned as a compound back to a single-register meter, do the following:

  1. Write down or capture a screenshot of the mis-provisioned meter information:
    • Account ID
    • Location ID, Name or Address
    • Meter ID
    • Endpoint ID
  2. Choose Assets>Update.
  3. Find the meter’s endpoint by searching for its Serial Number or Location Name.
