Heat for this. I have a house full of Energenie plugs for MiHome so this is right up my street!

I have one of these and another one but both give totaly different readings

Why not just get a smart meter fitted? Most energy providers fit them for free.

Anybody know what power and frequency these work on? How do they compare to the home wifi we surround ourselves with?

Well if that's the case you had better not turn your lights on or any electrical item for that matter... All electrical products emit radiation

I'm guessing these work fine for resistive loads i.e. nice clean synusoidal current waveform, but won't give a true reading for other devices e.g. anything containing a switching load. Try your meters on an electric heater or iron (should be a clean load) and see if they give the same reading.

Will this be controllable and viewable on the mihome app/internet page?

From the original link

"There are rapidly increasing concerns worldwide about the negative impact human health of long term exposure to ... mobile phones and cordless phone [sic]"

Sounds like bad science to me

Old story based on inaccurate one sided anecdotal data. Yep, there are lots of scare stories out there, just the same as there are for the use of mobile phones yet people are happy to have them clamped to the sides of their heads.

Basically you have a meter which uses mobile phone signals to talk back to your supplier and Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Z Wave or similar to talk to your in home display. Most people already have this technology in their houses with no issues.
I used to work for a utility company who were involved in the early testing, trials and fitting of these in the UK and the only problem we came across was one particular model did cause interference with one particular type of pacemaker. This was raised to the manufacturers who altered the design and fixed it.

If you're convinced they are a risk then you should obviously immediately stop using mobile phones, tablets, laptops, wireless baby monitors, any WiFi networks in your house, and any other wireless devices such as Hue bulbs, Nest thermostats, security cameras, doorbells etc. You should also turn off any Bluetooth or similar items like headphones, speakers, mice, printers and games console controllers. You also need to make sure anyone coming into your house doesn't bring and wireless devices with them, or turns them off at the door.

Next, nip around to all your immediate neighbours and get them to do the same thing.

Lastly, never visit any public places which have Wi-Fi or where there are other wireless devices like mobile phones in use. So effectively never go outside your house.

I'm pretty sure no. I have Energenie stuff and the "plus" version of the normal plug is the one which provides power monitoring - cpc.farnell.com/ene…996

I've got one of their "whole house monitors" which you attach to the feeds of your electricity meter and reports back to the MiHome app / webpage. I got for £20 from CPC just before Christmas but it's gone up to £45 now, doesn't seem to be in stock though. Maybe it will drop again when it comes back in? cpc.farnell.com/ene…997

Cheers, wish I had seen that offer. Would have been good alongside my mihome sockets and radiator stats.

I can easily believe it was the pacemaker at fault but fixing the design doesn't much help anyone who already has one fitted.

Don't be silly.

From what I have read its the levels of toxic radiation emitted by the smart meters which is concerning people, which is far more than a mobile phone, wifi router etc...

The human body uses electrical signals, so like anything else its important to shield it and protect from interference the best you can.

The population of the world is growing , the goal is to reduce this number. Conspiracy or not the reduction is happening now front of you.

If you want a smart meter , go for it

No it was the meter - they changed the frequency it transmitted on to sort it if I remember correctly.

no but i do have a wap running on AC but i can see where you theorys are going i just agree to differ and use a little common sense in this case as i think most will. there are always those looking for the dark in everything.

Obviously all research over 3 years all automatically dismissed on the grounds of age.
Most people are aware that in all probability transmitting devices probably have an impact on health. The difference is the benefit vs the risk. Most people are willing to take the risk for the great advantages a smart phone gives. On the other hand a do I accept a possible health risk for a meter that ends estimated bills and adds zero benefit to my life. Definitely not.

All this talk of radiation is totally off topic, this post is for an ENERGY METER, its not a smart meter and transmits nothing...

Actually it will emit radiation... All electrical items do.
