Smart Meters are Surveillance Tools

When we had our SmartMeter installed a few years ago, I didn't pay any attention. It seemed like an intelligent tool for power companies to manage their electric grid and reduce costs for data collection. 

Originally, I thought the critics complaining about radio waves were paranoid and drumming up fear. I never considered that smart meters are a surveillance tool. 

Smartmeters allow collection  of your individual power consumption profile, your personal habits and is essentially a unwarranted "wiretap" of your private life. 

 Check out this video above. The speaker makes some important points about privacy from governments and private parties.
