If your smart meters were installed by Bulb, they are second generation (SMETS2) meters. And your In-Home display is manufactured by Chameleon.

There are different models of IHD. The quickest way to tell which one you have is by the colour of the case. It'll either be white for an IHD6 or black for an IHD3.
