Care to expand that?

I remember old Realist saying something about that.
Wasn't it a Faraday box or something?

I wonder what they'd say if they found your smart meter wrapped in tin foil?

That's an interesting point, I don't have a smart meter but my electical fuses and meters are outside in a galvanised steel case which is a Faraday cage.

I wonder if they have to put an aerial outside the box or perhaps the wiring itself is an aerial?

Re: smart metres

I had the smart meter fitted on Friday...I am now obsessed with the little display box they have given me tell me how much I am spending right now and how much energy I used boiling that kettle
Itís ruling my life, I shall switch it off and hide it in a drawer..the meter is smart but not the helpline for Eon ..trying to switch my nighttime rate Economy 7 onto the day rate seems to be impossible.

That would not usually be for a Faraday cage. More for radio frequency interference.
