I've seen it have benefits, yes. But it's highly discouraged. You'll be able to get readings much lower by spreading them out. I know it's a bit of an investment, but if you can over time spread some filters out throughout the house and focus on places where there are electronics and appliances, you will get a much better result. The main breaker panel is an excellent place to place some filters as well. Ultimately you'll get the numbers down far lower - and that's the goal!
The best way to know how much of a problem (I'm sure the meter is a problem) is to measure. I would recommend the Safe and Sound Pro II meter for this purpose. It's our newest and favorite meter, as it shows Peaks, Max (Peak Hold), and Average (RMS) readings. https://www.electrahealth.com/safe_and_sound_pro_meter.html
Then you can also identify and eliminate other sources on your property too. People usually have more sources than just the smart meter, so having a meter like this will help you quickly find them, measure them, and reduce (or better yet eliminate) them.
We do not sell cages. Some cages can help (make sure to get stainless steel). But it really depends on how well you install the cages too. So...this brings us back to needing to measure before AND after and compare to make sure the install is good and as good as possible.
"Very low transmissions" when coming from a company especially, are meaningless. Very low compared to what I would ask them. It's an outrageous statement considering all of the smart meters I've seen, without exception, emit extremely powerful pulses and emit them pretty frequently (some more than others of course). They are horrible and make people very ill.
Thank you for the kind description - we humbly believe that our simple design is revolutionary and everyone should eventually follow suit.
You are better off using one of our shielded power strips in addition to the surge suppressor with grounded USB ports. You can use any power strip with our surge suppressor, but if the strip is going to be near your body then we recommend our shielded strip. It is also revolutionary in that, once again, it's the only one of its kind. Both the cord and the body are properly shielded and grounded with the labor done right here in the USA.
The cable isolator we sell is labeled. One end of it is "SYSTEM" and the other is "SUBSCRIBER"
The wire coming from the cable TV company must go directly into the SYSTEM side. It SHOULD NOT connect to anything else or touch anything else metal. This includes the little grounding brackets that are normally found with the cable connection to the house. On the "SUBSCRIBER" side of our isolator, this is where you connect your house's wire. You can and probably should also ground the subscriber side using the bracket that is probably already there from the cable company. So you can hook their bracket to our subscriber side.
Just ensure that the cable from the cable TV company goes directly into the SYSTEM side of the isolator. It should not go into a splitter or any kind of grounding block before it goes to the system side. It should come from overhead or underground and the very first thing it should connect to is the SYSTEM side of the isolator.
That's all there is to it :)
If your printer has a 3-prong plug, and it is hooked up to your computer via USB, then chances are you are correct - you would be double-grounded. You would have a ground loop there. It's best to test - because we still want everything to be grounded. Use a multimeter like the one in our Body Voltage Kit and test resistance.
If you do, indeed, have a ground loop (I would recommend testing the USB cord from the computer, and then also the USB port on the printer), here is what to do...Get a 2-to-3 prong outlet adapter. The kind they make to plug into 2-prong outlets that do not have a ground hole and allow you to plug a 3-prong cord into it.
That will eliminate the ground from one device and eliminate your ground loop. But only use this product if there is, indeed, a ground loop. Test and verify first before assuming. It would be bad to unground your printer cord if its USB port is not grounded to its own cord as well.
Yes, any device such as this once registered with the router (the MAC of the device registered with the router) will be capable of waking the router. The router will not go into sleep mode while the device is communicating with it. If the camera is trying to send packets somewhere to a host (a computer or other device or cloud service, etc) then it will keep the router awake. If the camera is not sending anything, then the router could go into sleep mode. I am not familiar with these cameras enough to know if the camera will go to sleep as well, but my guess would be that the camera would not go into sleep mode - it is probably communicating with a cloud service all the time.
However, sleep mode or not, you will enjoy a drastic reduction in radiation by switching to this router and eliminating your current router or completely shutting off its wireless (elimination of the router is the best so that we know it will never turn on again by your Internet provider). Switching to our router will most likely reduce the amount of radiation you are receiving from your WiFi router by greater than 98%!!! The more things you wire up the better. This router also makes a great gift for the holidays, since sooooo many people use WiFi and are exposed to unbelievably high amounts of radiation. Ultimately these technologies are most probably not safe, but this router is a good stepping stone to reduce exposure by eliminating the vast majority of the radiation that normally comes from the router.

Both meters are fantastic meters. You really can't go wrong with either one. The Safe and Sound Pro 2 is much, MUCH newer. It was designed from the ground up for the purpose of measuring RF for biological purposes. It does provide more information than the HF35C - "max" which is a peak hold. The HF35C does not have this, and it is actually an extremely nice feature to have.
The Safe & Sound Pro 2 was engineered in multiple countries and is third-party tested for accuracy. Measuring RF is an inaccurate enterprise - always - but both of these meters are very good and far better than anything in their price range or below.
The extra range of the SS Pro 2 could come in handy for current and upcoming 5G technology that goes beyond 2.4gHz. Also, 5gHz WiFi can be measured as well with the SS Pro 2. The high power density capability is not really necessary, but sort of a bonus as well. Obviously anything that's even a fraction of the power density the HF35C can handle is considered undesirable and likely harmful. So the extra frequency range is very good, and the power density is just a little bonus.
Directionally, the HF35C wins as it is designed to really amplify the waves it points to. It is a nice feature, but not necessary in my opinion. It's nice to have both a direction and non-direction meter. We use this approach professionally. However, if I had to choose only one then I chose the omnidirectional meter. I can use my body to block radiation coming from almost 180 degrees by holding the meter close to my torso. Then I can slowly turn my body to determine directionality. I have used this approach professionally (with another meter) quite a bit after there was an accident that ruined an antenna for my HF59B.
I would definitely recommend the Safe Living Technologies Safe and Sound Pro 2 meter all the way for you. You'll be very happy, and it will definitely allow you to measure those baby monitors! Measure and document with a video too (make sure cell phone is in airplane mode with wifi/bluetooth off).
I hope this is really helpful. Thanks!
I can't technically recommend a product that's designed or rated for indoor use to be used outdoors. But with Stetzerizerd filters I know people have. If it were me, I would install them (and actually I did this at my house as the main is outside) in a weatherproof junction box like a NEMA 3 metal or plastic box. I installed this directly next to my panel and it currently has 2 Stetzerizers in it - one on each leg. That would be the best thing. Maybe I even put a little electrical contact corrosion protection compound on the prongs too to make sure the connection would stay good longer.
