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.

“Microwaves, Science and Lies” Documentary Reveals a Product Defense Strategy

Introduction to the Documentary Film

Waves DVD Jacket. Front“When business leads research, can we still trust science?”

For the past ten years worldwide, questioning on the safety of mobile phone antennas has been increasing.  Numerous scientific studies have revealed the adverse effects of electro- magnetic waves on health.  Yet, most health agencies, industry representatives, and a portion the scientific community claim that current health standards adequately protect the public.

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.

WiFi – A Thalidomide in the Making – Barrie Trower

WiFi – A Thalidomide in the Making by Barrie Trower – September 2013 – http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/emerging/docs/emf_117.pdf

Remember Thalidomide?

Now the problem is WiFi and related radio frequency radiation

“Schoolgirls exposed to low-level microwave radiation (Wi-fi) are at risk of suffering stillbirth, foetal abnormalities or genetically damaged children, when they give birth.”
“Any genetic damage may pass to successive generations.”

 

Wi-Fi – A Thalidomide in the Making. Who Cares? by Barrie Trower Report – September 2013:

 

 OMG, If this is true then the next several generations are going to be damaged beyond repair.

Olle Johansson, in an video interview several months ago, said that our civilization has at most 2 generations to survive.

Experts and doctors warn: Pregnant women and children should not be exposed to wireless radiation

DEBATE:

On  July 3, 2014, an international team of doctors, scientific experts, and non-profit organizations called for pregnant women to limit exposure to wireless radiation from cell phones and other devices, by taking simple steps to protect themselves and their unborn children, writes Associate Professor Olle Johansson — whose article SvD (Svenska Dagbladet) and DN (Dagens Nyheter) refused to publish.

Former Nokia Boss: Mobile-Phones wrecked my health

 

Ashampoo_Snap_2014.10.18_20h43m45s_005_

Nokia’s former Technology Chief, Matti Niemelä, was involved in the development the world’s first mobile phones, but fell seriously ill himself from mobile-phone microwave radiation.

In addition, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Some studies suggest that radiation may increase the risk of even MS.

For Tampere-based Matti Niemelä, age 44, life was like in the movies when he as a young man was recruited to work for Nokia in 1997. The brilliant young man quickly advanced to become Nokia’s Chief Technology Officer for ten years, and was involved in developing the world’s first mobile phones, memory sticks and WLAN [Wi-Fi] connections.

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

 

 

Cell Phone Towers decrease Property Values

Jerry Flynn has been doing some research into the connection between the value of real estate and the proximity of cell towers.

1- New York Times news story, “A Pushback Against Cell Towers,” published in the paper’s Real Estate section, on August 27, 2010: 

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/29/realestate/29Lizo.html?_r=1&ref=realestate 

2 – In December 2009, 27 Burbank real estate professionals signed a petition/statement offering their professional opinion that the proposed T-Mobile cell tower at Brace Canyon Park would negatively impact the surrounding homes.

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.
