Are advanced meters safe?

Advanced meters installed in Australia meet strict safety standards and comply with electromagnetic exposure limits developed by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPNSA). When communicating, the types of emissions emitted by the advanced meter are in line with those produced by mobile and cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers and baby monitors.  These fall well under the allowable limit for human exposure.
