Dear (Energy Provider) and all agents, officers, employees, contractors and interested
If you intend to install a "Smart Meter" or any activity monitoring device at the
above address, you and all other parties are hereby deny consent for installation
and use of all such devices on the above property. Installation and use of any activity
monitoring device is hereby refused and prohibited. Informed consent is legally required
for installation of any surveillance device and any device that will collect and
transmit private and personal data to undisclosed and unauthorized parties for undisclosed
and unauthorized purposes. Authorization for sharing of personal and private information
may only be given by the originator and subject of that information. That authorization
is hereby denied and refused with regard to the above property and all its occupants.
"Smart Meters" violate the law and cause endangerment to residents by the following
1. They individually identify electrical devices inside the home and record when
they are operated causing invasion of privacy.
2. They monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and domestic
3. They transmit wireless signals which may be intercepted by unauthorized and unknown
parties. Those signals can be used to monitor behavior and occupancy and they can
be used by criminals to aid criminal activity against the occupants.
4. Data about occupant's daily habits and activities are collected, recorded and
stored in permanent databases which are accessed by parties not authorized or invited
to know and share that private data by those who's activities were recorded.
5. Those with access to the smart meter databases can review a permanent history
of household activities complete with calendar and time-of-day metrics to gain a
highly invasive and detailed view of the lives of the occupants.
6. Those databases may be shared with, or fall into the hands of criminals, blackmailers,
corrupt law enforcement, private hackers of wireless transmissions, power company
employees, and other unidentified parties who may act against the interests of the
occupants under metered surveillance.
7. "Smart Meters" are, by definition, surveillance devices which violate Federal
and State wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private and personal
activities and behaviors without the consent or knowledge of those people who are
8. It is possible for example, with analysis of certain "Smart Meter" data, for unauthorized
and distant parties to determine medical conditions, sexual activities, physical
locations of persons within the home, vacancy patterns and personal information and
habits of the occupants.
9. Your company has not adequately disclosed the particular recording and transmission
capabilities of the smart meter, or the extent of the data that will be recorded,
stored and shared, or the purposes to which the data will and will not be put.
10. Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency energy contamination from smart meters exceeds
allowable safe and healthful limits for domestic environments as determined by the
EPA and other scientific programs.
I forbid, refuse and deny consent of any installation and use of any monitoring,
eavesdropping, and surveillance devices on my property, my place of residence and
my place of occupancy. That applies to and includes "Smart Meters" and activity monitoring
devices of any and all kinds. Any attempt to install any such device directed at
me, other occupants, my property or residence will constitute trespass, stalking,
wiretapping and unlawful surveillance and endangerment of health and safety, all
prohibited and punishable by law through criminal and civil complaints. All persons,
government agencies and private organizations responsible for installing or operating
monitoring devices directed at or recording my activities, which I have not specifically
authorized in writing, will be fully liable for any violations, intrusions, harm
or negative consequences caused or made possible by those devices whether those negative
consequences are justified by "law" or not..
This is legal notice. After this delivery the liabilities listed above may not be
denied or avoided by parties named and implied in this notice. Civil Servant immunities
and protections do not apply to the installation of smart meters due to the criminal
violations they represent.
Notice to principal is notice to agent and notice to agent is notice to principal.
