)-- Viewpoints Industry TV will look at the trend among utilities to install so-called Smart Meters at customers' homes and offices, starting with the electrical grid. Designed to make peak usage more predictable and to spot wastage, these meters come along with a host of problems all their own, according to a 2012 US Congressional Research Service report. One is the electromagnetic field they create that can encompass most of a small house. Other issues include the cost, which is passed on to consumers whether they want their meters converted or not, as well as fire, health and security concerns. Now, a US Congressional Research Service report warns that these meters can give malicious hackers a pathway into the entire power grid, and some incidents have already occurred to support that concern. Protesters acknowledge that technological advances can be a good thing, but that citizens must have the right to "just say no."
