Smart meters, Smart Cities and Smart appliances are all connected to the ‘Internet of Things’ (IOT), which is an internet control system to which everything is connected via satellite and can be controlled remotely.

Energy providers will make the decision of energy usage for you, should there be a drain on the system. They can block you from accessibility to your own Smart connected appliances.

This happened to 22,000 homes in Denver in September 2022 during a hot 32-degree day. (see video below). Residents were not happy with the overreach by their energy provider.

As the Australian government has already stated via media press releases over the past few years, we may all find ourselves facing energy shortfalls during peak periods and unreliable energy connectivity.

This will most certainly be the case as unreliable green energy alternatives come into effect.

However, the ability for companies to remote control your household appliances, is encroachment of privacy into individuals' personal homes, and crosses the line in regard to corporate power.

If it is the case that energy providers can override Smart meters and all attached appliances, then where will this leave us and, in particular the elderly, during scorching Aussie summers and cold winters?
