How to activate new PHCN EDMI prepaid meter

Here’s your guide on how to setup your PHCN EDMI Prepaid meter from any of the PHCN companies e.g Ikeja or Eko electric.

All steps below should/may only work when there’s power in your area and the prepaid meter is blinking green and red light.

Step 1 — Connect the EDMI box to the Meter outside

The first step to setting things up before trying any of the short codes is to connect the box to the one outside.

Enter your meter no and hit enter. You should see the words “Connect” on the screen and then “Success” after a few seconds. If this step fails, make sure you’re close enough to the box outside and also that there’s power(light) in your area. I noticed that if there’s no light, you can’t connect to the box.
