A smart meter records household electrical consumption and communicates that information back to the utility provider for monitoring and billing purposes, by enabling two-way communication at regular intervals between the meter and the central system. These meters can produce significantly high levels of radio frequency (RF) emissions depending on many factors (location of meter in relation to occupied space, duty cycle or frequency of RF transmissions, reflection and re-radiation of RF, multiple meters at one location, collector meters, etc).
Power transmitters that will relay information from appliances inside buildings with wireless smart meters produce high, localized RF pulses. Any appliance that contains a power transmitter (dishwashers, washers, dryers, ranges and ovens, convection ovens, microwave ovens, flash water heaters, refrigerators, etc) will create another layer of RF signals that can cumulatively increase RF exposures in your home from the smart meter.
These meters are coming to your home soon; they’re already being installed in homes and condos/apartments in California. To tell us how you feel about it, click below on “Leave a comment”.
