Has anyone suggested yet to put the foil on when you're home at night and using a lot of power, lights, TV etc. Then taking iit off when you're at work and so on, during low use levels. This way the power company will get readings, just not your actual readings. These will be low readings.

Talk about yer payback.

I meant to add, that if we were to do this, and everyones bills went down..... this would beyond a doubt be the end of these meters.

In case anyone is wondering WHY the whole planet is rushing to instal smart meters everywhere:

Global cashless currency based on energy not gold - needs Smart Grid full of smart meters
Thread: Carbon Tax, Global 'Warming' and Smart Grids - welcome to the New International Economic Order

and

Electricity as the universal basis for a new money system. What a concept!

This thread needs a bump. OG&E in Oklahoma is stealthily installing these meters right now.

THEY JUST DID IT TO ME and I had put a padlock on my meter.

They cut it off and threw it on the ground. AND, they did it on the ONE day that I was not home. HOW IN HELL DID THEY KNOW THAT?

I am home 90% of the time. How did they know when I would be gone?

Not to mention Oklahoma's law concerning the privacy of the data - it is non-existant. Basically they can sell any and all of your data that they collect to ANYONE!

Am going to try the foil. But I am also going to hit the legislature and lawyers. THIS IS GETTING ABSURD PEOPLE!

If you keep fucking with your meter they will deny you service and it will be completely legal for them to do so. They can also charge you for the labor when someone comes to your house to tear off the foil if they need to. The meters where I live are not effected by foil. We tried it.

There 3 ways smart meter will transmit a signal:

Antenna in unit.
House wiring used as antenna.
Signal sent back to grid.

Edison Electric recently installed a smart meter on my house, without my permission or knowledge. When I read about the dangers and invasion of privacy caused by these smart meters and discovered that I now had one, I was pissed. Too late to do anything about it? WRONG!!!

You see, the antenna for these meters is located inside the glass (or plastic) bulb. All I had to do was to cover the entire glass bulb with aluminum foil, making sure that the foil was grounded to the metal housing behind the bulb. This shields against any RF or Microwave transmissions, which both protects you from the radiation and also defeats the entire purpose of the smart meter, since they can't read it remotely.

Then I sat back and waited for them to realize that they weren't getting any readings from my house. I checked the foil periodically to see if it was still there. Today it happened. They had to send some one out to rip the foil off of my meter to get a manual reading! I found the foil ripped off and laying on the ground. Naturally, I just re-applied the foil and now look forward to them having to send somebody out each and every month to remove the foil if they want to get a reading. If everyone would do this, it would defeat the entire smart meter program! They would have to re-think all of the money that they are spending to install these dangerous and privacy invading devices simply because people can render them dumb with 10 cents worth of aluminum foil!

I say everybody should rise up and "FOIL" this disgusting smart meter program!

Hey, its my house, I can apply foil where ever I want!

It is your house

You can build a decorative double layer copper box surrounding the meter to hide it's ugliness
all you need is a lift up door for them to read the dials when they come by
Thin Plywood lined inside and out with copper and grounded is all you need

Re: !!! REVENGE AGAINST THE SMART METERS!!! HOW TO MAKE THEM DUMB!!!
So glad this is being confronted. These things are everywhere now in Southern California/Los Angeles. A group here was going up against the utility company with an M.D. writing letters for some who had documented 'environmental sensitivities' to be excluded from these meters. The M.D. included documentation of laws that are in place to protect those with environmental sensitivities. (I can get copies of these laws if needed, don't have right here now though) The local utilities blew it all off and did not budge an inch. Some people have installed anti-EMF devices in their homes to combat these evil EMF's that these LAME meters emit. There is a site called LessEMF.com that helps protect in some ways. BTW, did you know they make anti-EMF paint? Sheets? who would have thunk? LOL
The foil is genius. Count us in. We will spread word around here bigtime.

If you think one of those evil little boogers is bad, try living in a large apartment building and the utility box which holds 20-50-100+ of these things sits outside very close to your window. SOOOOOOOOOOO bad!!!!!
Tin Foil is great. Keep this site going. It is nice to see this on here.
And BTW, I would trade an average bill if need be for a decent night's sleep, like we had in the days before these things.
To whoever said 'just call the company'. No way. This area has tried lawyers, lawsuits, M.D. guided lawsuits. You have got to be kidding me if you think that would work. Its the Mother F-ing PTB.

FOIL!!! now I can go to sleep happy. I lOVE IT!!!!


ps how do you foil a whole panel of these things? hmmmm. thinking.hf

They actually do pull signal power from the line side of the meter, so you don't pay for that directly. They're still a problem though. They should only be allowed to transmit once a month.

BTW, conductive silver spray paint would be much harder to remove than foil. I wonder how they'd react. Just mask carefully so you don't end up with an ugly meter pan.

This is true. I know a meter reader and he uses a remote handheld contraption to read the meters.
I did a little test when I saw him walking by my apartment in the sticks. I flipped off my wifi router and he flipped around aiming his device in the general direction of the router shaking his head, he then tapped his device still shaking his head.
I asked him outside what was going on, he said he had a spike on his reader that messed up his readings.
It might have also been because I had an aluminum pan sitting on top of my microwave which was running, who knows.

Hate to run counter to almost every person here, but our readings actually went down after the smart meter was installed, and by quite a bit of money.

And as far as the dangers of them, anyone thought about your wi-fi connection in your house and the dangers it poses? How about your cellphone? How about the electrical transformer sitting on the pole outside your house? How about your main electrical panel and the EMF it gives off? Your microwave? See, there's quite a few things there that could be "dangerous", and for people to bitch about their meter and their need for "tinfoil" (in more ways then one) is pretty preposterous, unless your resting your forehead on the meter soaking it all up.

What about other utility lines (water, sewage, gas lines, etc.) that run under your property? Think you own them since they may be under your property? Nope, you don't. And again, try destroying them and see what happens. See what happens when you decide to destroy that neighborhood gas line that runs across your property and see how pissed off your neighbors get when your neighborhood goes BOOM at worst, or the entire neighborhood looses gas and you get to explain to the utility workers that have to come and dig up your property to get to the line to keep it from going BOOM.

Come on people, think these things through before you go flying off the handle.

You can't do anything.
Pay your fair share you deadbeat.
You can be charged, at minimum, with criminal mischief for putting foil on the meters and the utility company can back charge your bill for the time for a meter reader to come out and remove the foil and take a reading. It can be several hundred dollars per occurrence.

Is useless it don't do anything the inside of the ert (dial for you retards) is made of plastic so a magnet is useless and the foil trick don't work the ert only sends a signal when the meter reader shows up with the handheld computer it transmits a low frequency radio wave not a brain penetrating microwave and the gas company don't need permission to put a new ert on the meter it don't belong to you it's their property and by right if you get caught tampering with a meter you can end up in prison and paying fines you really think the utility company's don't think about all these tricks they all have a revenue protection dept that investigates this stuff
