Will the emitted radio frequency affect electronic devices within my home?

No, the only time the meter transmits a signal is when it’s prompted by a Data Collection Unit. Unless a follow-up read is requested, this should only occur once a month on your scheduled meter reading date. Additionally, the ERT operates at a very low-level radio frequency and will not interfere with or operate any other electronic devices such as:

  • Garage door openers
  • Televisions
  • Cordless or cellular phones
  • Wireless computer networks
  • Internet access
  • Cardiac pacemakers
