Admittedly, I’ve heard utility companies claim they don’t track consumers’ utility usage, e.g., electric power. However, the ZigBee radios installed in each AMI Smart Meter is there for the specific purpose of interacting with all the ‘smart’ appliances within a home in order to gather specifics regarding consumption, patterns, time of use, etc. – then selling that data to customer-unknown, third parties without customer permission! Plus power shut off capabilities consumers can’t control!
Tracking consumers’ smart appliances, then selling that information for marketing purposes even has been denied! Liar, liar, pants on fire! Well, let’s consider what’s going on in the UK and elsewhere, like Australia and various global regions, being tracked by a Data and Analytics team, Onzo.
A very brief, but intensively-packed, infomercial about Onzo’s abilities to provide explicit utility usage of in-depth customer profiles, finally may awaken consumers to the Orwellian fact the conspiracy false news networks – U.S. corporate-controlled media – is not providing information consumers should know, which not only will affect consumer privacy, but consumers’ pocketbooks.
Listen most intently to understand what’s being said – and even acknowledged – about customers’ invasion of privacy (disregard of constitutional rights) and the sale of personal information U.S. utilities AMI Smart Meter suppliers won’t tell you, nor acknowledge is happening. Denial is very real, but here we learn what some of the hardcore realities of ‘smart’ technologies are all about—control.
