The article states it's for dementia patients but you can bet law enforcement will use it on on investigations after all it's too big of a technology to ignore for your safety and protection!

The smart meters involved in the dementia study can monitor patients? energy use every ten seconds. They will be connected to a central computer system which will learn patients? daily routines, such as when they normally use certain electrical appliances.

Any sudden changes ? such as not boiling the kettle at the same time each morning or turning lights on in the middle of the night ? will trigger an alert.

Dr Carl Chalmers, of Liverpool John Moores University, who is leading the trial, said the devices had ?huge potential? to improve dementia patients? lives.

    got one of those out of 3 meters.....and read how by the pattern they can tell what is on or off in your place...and the FKN chinese meter numbers fade out in the sun so YOU CANNOT READ your own meter ...filed complaints enuff they brought out another meter (used) and i even put a plastic bucket over it and it the digits still disappeared after a month......may have to file a complaint with the state corp commission to get anything fixed

    So let say law enforcement wants to raid your house for an arrest so all they do is coordinate it with the power company and presto no electricity.

    The government can herd the sheeple in many ways and it's only getting more tools to be more invasive at will to instill their discipline over us.

    Our representatives in Congress or state houses won't lift a finger to protect the public from their invasion tentacles either. Bet on it! More & more laws with restrictions and controls grows every day to seize their power over us.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
