In terms of metering technology it moves at a fast pace, before my retirement we ran test bed with a central home hub that gathered the data from a homes electric, gas and water meter, the hub then once a day fired up and sent the data to a laptop, it will happen one day.
Water companies are now using daily flow smart metering technology to help detect sudden flow increases to help with possible leak detection.
Electricity suppliers can use sudden drops in your usage to investigated illegal abstraction of electricity that's why your data is so useful.
