Smart meter integration Using Pi and RS 485

Hi Everyone,

I recently started working on a Project to measure active power in residential Environments. I am using an SMG-D4 smart meter which uses an SML protocol. The main idea is to collect the necessary readings from the meter and store them in a database and then display the real-time info on a live dashboard and to be able to generate reports based on the data. So far I have struggled to connect the meter. tried out several scripts and looked up on forums but nothing helped. I would appreciate it if any help could be provided. I am looking to connect to the community and have a successful project.

Thank you.
