Smart meters, do you have one and are you satisfied?
I come from the UK and don't have a smart meter, but for the last couple of years now companies are pushing for people to have them installed.
In the last few weeks I see advertisements more and more on the tv pushing this technology.
Anyway I decided to research the topic on Smart Meters recently and come to a conclusion that these meters are not smart at all, well they are for the companies installing them, but not for the consumer like you and I.
"The roll-out of smart meters is one strategy for energy savings"
Really, and for who?
Why would governments be pushing for smart meters to replace existing ones?
If you think for the good of the consumer and to save us money then I for one do not fall for this at all. Governments rarely go out of their way to help us and that is a fact!
My research lead me to the US and issues that people have had which I found absolutely disgusting.
I found that installers were replacing existing meters without the permission of the house owners, and were breaking into houses to install them.
I found owners actually coming out into their garden to try and stop these companies installing these smart meter only for the Police to arrive and be arrested.
I found that deaths occurred where people happened to be living and sleeping near to.
An example of this was a college/university where the persons bedroom was next to a bank of these meters, where he was given 6 months to live and his parents had to watch him die.
Obviously in the short term the parents just thought their son had been dealt the wrong cards and unfortunately got cancer. It wasn't until after a few years later that the parents found out I think 9 students living in the same room died of the same condition and the smart meters were brought to their attention.
Can you believe nobody was held responsible for these deaths?
I found out that many caused fires and houses burnt down.
It took me less than 2 hours to come to the conclusion that these so called Smart Meters are "Not Smart" at all and are death traps.
The micro-waves that these throw off are a danger to everyone, and when you find whole housing estates with them fitted and you purchase one it's like giving owners a death sentence.
I found that in many cases home owners bills were doubling.
The idea behind these is to eventually link all your household products which would be very easy to do. Just look at mobile phones and smart tv's. They both have a unique address and have been shown to be used as listening devices. Any household electrical appliance could be used in this way.
Just look at micro-chips that are installed everywhere. In the US people are actually volunteering to have their families implanted with them, and the reasons that are given are, if your child was abducted then we could find them. Makes the family feel safe!
Anyway that one is for another day.
Everybody should learn to question everything and do your research thoroughly.
Here I am just trying to get a feel for what other members have gone through with this technology.
I for one will not have one installed but when it comes to moving house then that has to be a question to ask that a smart meter is not installed!
Have a nice day and I didn't mean to frighten anyone.
