Anyone actually monitoring gas meter with a pulse counter?


I know lots of people on the forums are asking about this, but I was wondering how many people actually have it working? My main question is have you had any issues with meter readers thinking it is some sort of meter tampering? has anyone had any communications with the meter "owner" before or after installing the pulse counter?

I have got a Hall Effect sensor and Raspberry Pi system working fine with my old gas meter, but before I attach the sensor and cabling in a more permanent way I wondered about how it would be seen by the meter readers and "owners".
