Hi Jim,

Andrew is a customer service representative, and he is always excited to try to help customers and potential customers with questions.  I saw this thread, so I thought it might help if I reply myself.  I am the owner of the company - a small family company in Rockford, Illinois - not affiliate or owned by anyone else or any other company.  There are no shareholders - we are beholden to no one but ourselves.

We do have a mission statement, because we are NOT a profit-driven company:

To continually advance healthier electricity and electronics with innovative and proven products, services, and information, empowering and engaging one another for a naturally healthy planet and people.

We are totally on the same page with you.  We do not like smart meters, period.  That's why we have been carrying analog electric meters for some years now - maybe 7 years?  We don't like the privacy issues, the freedom issues, the creepy surveillance and record issues, the health issues, and the lying and conniving, corrupt behavior of these energy execs and their revolving-door "regulators" and other corrupt government personnel.  We encourage and try to help people.

The best way we've found is to send legal notices such as those found at: or - from here you can find documents that you can create a notarized affidavit that puts the power company and individuals on notice and makes them liable.  Then people who have switched out their meters afterwards have had REALLY good success at keeping their analog meters and helping others to do the same.  So I would really highly encourage you to check out those websites.

Andrew was convey, as instructed, that we can't take on liability of giving legal advice because we are not attorneys.  Nor can we take on liability for giving medical advice or local/state building code advice, etc.  So as long as you understand this, we are happy to just share information and hopefully it will be helpful.

We try to do this as much as we can, but we are also trying to keep true to our mission of continually advancing healthy technology and having solutions as well.  So we are a bit limited on time as far as how much we can help an individual without receiving any kind of compensation from that.  I hope you understand.

We are with you 1000% though and we love it when people buy these meters and use them.  It feels great every time an analog meter goes out the door.  I hope this is helpful

Not at this time - you need to either go with MC cable, or use an unapproved cable like the type we sell.  It is not listed for in-wall use, so use at your own risk.  But it is heavy duty 14 gauge shielded cable.  There is a particular method we use when using MC cable.  We could go over that with you and a few other really good pointers before you start doing work.  I would highly recommend getting a phone session with us before you get further along in the process.

I can help you avoid a lot of wasted time and poorly-designed systems.  There is stuff we do that I've not heard anyone else do :)

I have heard of these devices, but we have never tested them.  We aren't even aware of any measurement equipment/meters that can objectively measure "geopathic stress."  There isn't exactly any scientific standards or definitions of "geopathic stress" that I know of either.  Some people use very subjective methods of measuring it, like dousing, etc.  While I can't dismiss anything - we are a scientific/engineering company.  We stay in the realm of what we can measure.  There is so much a person can do to improve readings and measurements for real scientific fields/radiation, that keeps us busy enough.  We don't delve into metaphysical or feel-good products, or products that don't have compelling scientific evidence that they work.

If someone has a meter for "geopathic stress" - then I would be interested.  Then perhaps the pad could also be measured.

I would be very wary to purchase products like this.  We think it's best to clean up sources that produce measurable pollution in the home/office.  Perhaps when all of that is exhausted, other products could be reviewed and tried.

If the phone is completely off, you shouldn't pick up any fields from it.  If the phone is in airplane mode with WiFi/Bluetooth off, then magnetic fields can still be emitted.  Keep the phone at least 3-5 feet away if you want to use it for an alarm clock in Airplane mode and with WiFi/Bluetooth off.  At least then no radiofrequency (wireless) microwave radiation signals will be emitted.  I use my phone as an alarm clock at times, but I keep the phone at least 3-5 feet away and always make sure Airplane mode is on and WiFi/Bluetooth are off.  Some phones like to turn WiFi/Bluetooth on by themselves for some reason.

The problem with the ends is that, especially with shielded cable, they are rather picky.  Certain ends work well with certain wires, and not with others.  Some ends are designed for stranded wire, such as the wire in our cables, and other ends are designed for solid wire.  In addition to that, you need the tools - a good crimper - and there is usually a learning curve associated with properly terminating RJ-45 connectors.  Shielded cable is even tougher to terminate properly and make sure you have good connections with the data conductors and also the shielding.

My recommendation to avoid wearing out of the ends would be to get one of our shielded couplers here:

Then use a shorter length cord for the frequent plugging in/out of the cable.  I mean we haven't had anyone else experience a cable wear-out that I know of, but this would be the solution to avoid such a scenario.  I would recommend doing this and forget about trying to terminate your own ends on there as it would probably be very difficult to achieve.

We don't have any videos on this, but no doubt there are countless videos on RJ-45 termination on the Internet.  I don't know how many would involve shielded wiring though.

not sure, but is a non-routable internal address anyways so traffic doesnt go out to the Internet.  There may be an https option for web admin through the Internet.  I would check DD-WRT documentation for that.  I know they support a secure method for remote admin.   Or you can use VPN as well to admin the router remotely.

We really prefer to reduce the number of electronics in the home as much as possible.  While Stetzerizer Filters can help, it's always advised and preferred to also reduce and eliminate the sources as much as possible.  I personally do not use any LED or CFL bulbs in my home, or dimmer switches.  Despite having filters and also shielded wire everywhere, I still choose to eliminate these sources and stick with clean incandescent and energy-saving halogen lamps

The router administration page is and the default username is admin

The default password is password

Once you have logged-in, click on the Wireless tab.  You will see Wireless physical interface wl1.  It is set to "disabled" by us.  Set this back to "mixed," and you will have the 5Ghz network back on.  It was disabled to further reduce exposure, but can easily be re-enabled by following these steps.

This is a great question.  We have used and seen numerous shielding products and contraptions designed for this purpose.  The problem is that using such devices will bring very, very mixed results.  Depending on the type of material, construction, layers, and holes/gaps (such as those required for wiring) - the results will be very mixed and unpredictable.

This is one of the reasons we really like our Low Emission WiFi Router

Rather than attempting to shield, we have changed the source.  Rather than try to cover up or block, we have reduced those emissions to begin with.  We have cut down on the radiation by approximately 99.8%

Plus, you have the ability to adjust it.  You can increase or decrease the power of the router.  So don't try to cover it up - eliminate the source :)

Hi Lynne,

The shielded surge suppressors we sell start out as Belkin surge suppressors.  We then heavily modify them by hand in our shop in Rockford, Illinois.  We have been shipping the surge suppressors with "Light Almond" color cords for quite some time now.  You can tell it is our EHS-Shield cord, because imprinted on the cord is the word "SHIELDED"  It is also 8 foot in length.  The standard Belkin cord is 15 feet, black, unshielded of course, and does not contain the word shielded on the cord.

So these are ways you can tell.  There are a few other ways as well.  Another great way is by testing the cord with a no-contact voltage sensor, or an actual electric field detector or meter.  These devices will all show you that the cord is very well shielded and is not putting out detectable electric fields.

Thank you for your question.  Is there anything else we can answer?
