New appliances such as washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, television sets, air conditioners, and heating systems have transmitters that emit wireless radiation and report your usage information. These appliances not only increase your exposure to wireless radiation in your home, they reduce your privacy. Information such as the time you start, energy used, and time you stop is wirelessly transmitted via your home's smart meter to your electric company. The electric company stores this information but could sell it to a third-party vendor further eroding your privacy. Is this truly "smart" for consumers?
