Opposition to expensive, privacy invasive, unreliable and unsafe utility “Smart” Meters (electric, gas, and water) is worldwide. Despite all the problems associated with these meters – including fires, explosions (see 1, 2, 3) and health risks to humans and pets (see 1, 2, 3) – proponents still insist that they’re better than one-way transmitting analog meters. NOPE! A free online documentary as well as countless articles and websites provide information proving the exact opposite.
What are Smartmeters?
Smartmeters are the new utility consumption measurement devices for electricity, water, and gas that are being installed across the nation, at residences and other buildings. There would be a separate meter for each type of utility and they are installed by the companies and governments that provide the utilities.
Most people are unaware that their meter has been switched or is in the process of being switched from an analogue meter to a digital “smart” meter. If your home or building already had a meter, it was probably an analogue meter (used for decades), but the the replacement meter is likely a digital meter—a “smart” meter.
