What are smart meters and why should you be concerned about them enough to take legal action to protect your personal privacy?

Fact 1: Smart meters are currently being installed by electric power companies throughout the state of Arizona and other states as we speak. When we asked our local electric power company about them, they said they were being installed daily and that several nearby communities had just been completed.

Fact 2: Smart meters are electric meter replacements for home and businesses which have additional radio transmission features turning them into surveillance devices violating your privacy through "implied consent". Here is what smart meters can do and the issues involving your safety and privacy….

  1. Smart meters can individually identify electrical devices inside the home and record when they are operated causing invasion of privacy.
  2. They can monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and domestic security.
  3. Smart meters transmit wireless signals which may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and can be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants.
  4. Data about the occupant's daily habits and activities are collected, recorded and stored in permanent databases which are accessed by parties not authorized or invited to know and share that private data.
  5. Those with access to the smart meter databases can review a permanent history of household activities complete with calendar and time-of-day metrics to gain a highly invasive and detailed view of the lives of the occupants.
  6. Smart meter databases may be shared with, or fall into the hands of, criminals, blackmailers, law enforcement, private hackers of wireless transmissions, power company employees, and other unidentified parties who may act against the interests of the occupants under metered surveillance.
  7. Smart Meters are, by definition, surveillance devices which violate Federal and State wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private and personal activities and behaviors without the consent or knowledge of those people who are monitored.
  8. It is possible, for example, with analysis of certain "Smart Meter" data, for unauthorized and distant parties to determine medical conditions, sexual activities, physical locations of persons within the home, vacancy patterns and personal information and habits of the occupants.
  9. Your electric company has not adequately disclosed to you and the unsuspecting public-
    • The particular recording and transmission capabilities of their smart meters,
    • The extent of the data that will be recorded, stored and shared,
    • The purposes to which the data will and will not be used,
    • No declaration of data safeguards for personal privacy protection.

HAVE YOUR ATTENTION? Excellent, now view the short, video below and learn how to legally protect yourself from this invasion of privacy.


Here are the simple steps you can take to prevent smart meters from being installed or to have them legally removed from your property to prevent this invasion of your personal privacy….

  1. Use the information from the video to determine whether a smart meter has already been installed on your property.
  2. When you have completed reading this information, send a request to the following email address to obtain the two free, form letters. --->

    They will be sent to you as MS Word attachments and instream letter examples. (If you don't have MS Word on your computer you can "cut and paste" or recreate directly with your methods). You can modify one of the two letters that fits your situation and inform your electric company of your insistence that they not violate your privacy via "implied consent".
  3. The two letter forms are for one of two situations that you must determine fits your need--
    • The first letter version is for the situation when the smart meter has not yet been installed on your home and your demand that it not be installed now or in the future.
    • The second version is for the situation after you have discovered by physical inspection that a smart meter has already been installed without your consent and that you want if removed and replaced with a non-smart meter version with no transmission capability.

  4. Modify the appropriate letter with your name and the name of your electrical company. Send the letter to the electrical company corporate headquarter's legal department via certified mail to provide everyone with proof that they received it.
  5. Retain a copy for your records.
