Privacy and Security Advanced meters pose little to no risk to your privacy and security. Usage data transmitted across the network is encrypted using industry standard processes and technologies. Private customer data is not transmitted to or from the meter.
Health and Safety All smart meters are specified, manufactured, installed, and accessed by trained and certified engineering and electrical professionals in compliance with industry safety and manufacturing standards including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The new water meters emit less radio frequency energy than many other commonly-used wireless devices, like cell phones, baby monitors, satellite TVs, and microwaves that are used daily by millions of people. Radio frequency moves through space at the speed of light. The new water meters use low-energy radio frequency waves to transmit information from 100 ft to a couple miles, and typically, in short bursts throughout the day.
