WEMO is a system that allows users to control home electronics from anywhere.

WEMO is a series of products from Belkin International, Inc. that allows users to control home electronics from anywhere.  This appears to be a subset of home automation.

WEMO is just an example of the whole new world of devices, with IP addresses that can communicate on the internet and that includes the home WiFi.

Benefits?

To most people this sounds like a great advance with many benefits. Think of the time they could save by having control over home devices from your office, on the road,  out of town.

Imagine turning the coffee maker in the kitchen on when you wake up and are still in bed.  Wow.  And turning the lights on the driveway off at 10 pm,  automatically.  Or giving you an SMS message at sunset with the current temperature?   The geeks will really love this stuff.
See this site that proposes that you might use a motion detector to turn the fan or aircon on when the cat uses the cat toilet. No kidding. see this article from Australia

Down Side?

There is a growing segment of the population that believes that RFR (radio frequency radiation or microwave radiation) causes health problems. (RFR has not been proven to be Safe)  Some of these people are quite sensitive to RFR and must avoid areas with RFR from WiFi routers,  Cell towers,  cell phones and wireless smart meters otherwise they have health problems.

So, this addition of more devices talking to each other and a controller using WiFi RFR will simply increase the level of impact on the health of all people in the area.

The WiFi RFR has a limited range of 50-100 feet which you can check out with your smart phone connection to WiFi. This means people living in a condominium or an apartment with neighbours on 2 or 3 or 4 sides and upstairs and downstairs, each with several WiMo gadgets will be exposed to lots of RFR.

If you believe that living in an environment with high RFR is not good for your health and should be regarded as toxic,  THEN you must try to avoid these new WiFi gadgets like the WiMo.  Also, you should read all there is about the health effects and what you must do because the health you save may be your own or that of your family or friends.

The companies that are developing these toxic items have spent a lot of money on the R and D and they expect to make lots of money from the people who buy into this wireless home automation world.  So expect to see an increasing flood of these devices,  lots of advertising and lots of claims that RFR poses no health impacts.

Critical Problem with ‘Smart’ Meters: The Switching-Mode Power Supply (SMPS)

 

DE (dirty electricity) is the low frequency (1 Hz to 60 kHz) electrical noise in the wiring of a house that radiates throughout the house.

DE has been found to have health impacts on people exposed to it and there are devices that some purchase to decrease this damage.

Smart Meters and other modern devices create DE when they change the high voltage to lower voltage.  Great technology but it has a very sinister downside.

Here is an interesting article published in 2011 that details the problems of DE from Smart Meters.    It even suggests that California, as well as all other jurisdictions will suffer huge financial troubles in the near future with falling real-estate prices and huge law suits.

OPEN YOUR MIND RADIO – Olle Johansson

Here is an interesting peoples internet RADIO site from Ireland that covers many of the issues that we are involved in. Remembrer RADIO?

http://www.oymradio.com/images/podcasts/225_TwoHundredTwentyFive_OlleJohansson_OYM.MP3

The show is almost 2 hours long.  No video, just audio..  Just sit back, relax and listen.

Olle Johansson – runs from 17 min.  to 144 min.  You can jump to the start of his interview.

  • EHS is a recognized disability in Sweden.
  • EHS conference in Brussels in November 2014 (1:09+)
  • Dangers of WiFi
  • Electro Smog
  • Health effects of microwaves – very dangerous
  • Impacts on DNA
  • WiFi in Schools – dangerous
  • Transmitting Water Meters might effect quality of water?  EHS?
  • Pure LiFi – something new

 

AMR – Transmit only Meters are very dangerous

Recently, I had the opportunity to measure the RF Radiation coming from an ITRON C1SR in Summerland BC and the results were quite alarming.  This is an AMR type of meter. This type of meter has been reported to being used in Nelson and Grand Forks BC.

This C1SR meter transmits a spike of radiation that contains the current kWh reading of the meter every 30 seconds.  This is done so that a Meter Reader with a receiver can drive by any time and can get the reading without having to wait very long.  This time between transmits may be changed by the operator but they have to walk up to the meter and use a direct connection to the meter to do that.  It seems that the meters in Grand Forks are also transmitting at 30 second intervals.

The measurements that I made from the front of the meter in Summerland at a distance of 2 meters ranged from 500 to almost 900 microwatts per square meter ( µW/m²).  This, is quite high when measured at 2m.  The radiation at 1m would be significantly higher.  If this meter were on the side of a house next to a bedroom or kitchen then I would be very concerned.

I used a GigaHertz  HF59B radiation meter and recorded the output on a GigaHertz NFA1000.  Here is what I recorded:

qn0jszfj

You can see that all spikes were not the same power (I do not know why) but the spacing was almost exactly 30 seconds.

I have also recorded the output of Itron Smart Meters and found that the radiation spikes were similar in strength (amplitude)  but the number of spikes were significantly less than the C1SR meters.

Thus, if you believe that each spike from a digital meter is harmful and the radiation damage is cumulative, then you must conclude that the Itron C1SR and similar AMR meters are capable of serious health impact similar to that of Smart Meters.

Cheers,   Ted

 

 

EHS Conference London – 7th March 2014

2) Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe speaks on EHS

 An excellent video.  Fast 36 min.  You must pause video to read some of the slides.  Fantastic.  The presentation gets a bit deep but this will give you an idea of what is going on in the world of EHS research.

EHS sufferers are not crazy.  It is the world that has gone crazy.

Doctors speak out AGAINST WiFi in Toronto Parks.

In August 2013, Josh Matlow, a Toronto city Councilor started a push for free WiFi in Toronto Parks.   see http://joshmatlow.ca

Also, do a web search to find more “public wireless internet in torontos parks”

In November 2013,   2 respected Medical Doctors  wrote to the Toronto City Councilors stating that WiFi in public parks is not a good idea.

It is imperative that City of Toronto does not install wifi’s in public parks and spaces.  I ask you to vote against Councillor Matlow’s proposal.

The doctors are:

Hugh E. Scully BA, MD, MSc, FRSCICI, FACS, Professor of Surgery, etc.  (see more details by doing a search on Hugh scully toronto)

Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D.  F.A.C.C.,  F.A,C.N, C.N.S (see more details by doing a search on Stephen Sinatra)

Please read the letters written by these two eminent doctors to the Toronto city councilors.

Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation – David Carpenter

Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation

| 11 juin 2012
(original athttps://maisonsaine.ca/sante-et-securite/electrosmog/smart-meters-correcting-gross-misinformation.html)
I believe that this article is so important that we must all read.

Quebec-based magazine La Maison du 21e siecle asked physician David O. Carpenter, former founding dean of the University at Albany (NY)’s School of Public Health, to comment an open letter published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir on May 24 2012. This letter claimed wireless smart meters pose no risk to public health. More than fifty international experts contributed to the following rebuttal. 

We, the undersigned are a group of scientists and health professionals who together have coauthored hundreds of peer-reviewed studies on the health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). We wish to correct some of the gross misinformation found in the letter regarding wireless “smart” meters that was published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir on May 24. Submitted by a group Quebec engineers, physicists and chemists, the letter in question reflects an obvious lack of understanding of the science behind the health impacts of the radiofrequency (RF)/microwave EMFs emitted by these meters.
