When I heard they were coming to the area I went to all my neighbours and got them to sign the notice I posted on the meter box. If I was in a house I would just lock the meter box but I am in a unit and little is said about how to protect a block.
On my lounge wall on the other side is 6 analogue meters – I don’t want 6 smart meters. I am really afraid how it will affect me. I work from home and am very sensitive. Under a body corp I can’t do very much as far as locking my meter or the meter box.
There is padlock on meter box that the utility companies use when they read the meter. Do I cut the lock? Replace with my own? Will body corp have an issue with me? Probably? All the tenants I have spoken to don’t want it – the other residents don’t understand (it’s a big multicultural area here) I am worried they will make me sick and I don’t want 6 on other side of my wall… I feel powerless… any tips on what I can do?
So far its delayed for now. They came around month ago saw the notice and didn’t bother… but afraid it will still happen. I do rent but where I am is lovely. Except for this now. Does any other unit resident have any ideas on how to prevent the installation? If it does come in I will have to look at moving. Thanks.
