There have been concerns by some people about the safety of advanced metering. The meters work by communicating via radio-frequency (RF) waves. However, when it comes to advanced meters, these radio-frequency levels are very low.

According to a study from the American Cancer Society, the exposure to radio-frequency waves from advanced meters is less than technologies such as cell phones, cordless phones, or Wi-Fi routers. There is no clear evidence that RF waves from advanced meters can lead to adverse health effects.
