LEARN MORE About the Emerging EMF Public Health Issue from Scientists, Physicians and Other Experts at www.ElectromagneticHealth.org
This site is for people who want to learn how to assess home and office environments for electromagnetic fields, and how to remediate electromagnetic safety problems if they exist. Our philosophy is that one should first learn how to clean up one’s personal environment, and especially one’s sleeping and office environments where one spends long hours. To that end, we offer you a selection of high value-added and economical measurement and safety resources screened and described by expert EMF consultant, Stan Hartman of Radsafe in Boulder, CO.
For more information about electromagnetic factors in health please read the Book, Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution, available at www.ElectromagneticHealth.org. There you will also find much valuable educational content on this emerging public health issue. Learn—and come back often!
1) Meters. You’ll find a range of meters and detectors here for electric, magnetic and radiofrequency fields, so you can start becoming an EMF detective. It is only when you measure the fields that you can know what fields are present, and how, and from what direction, to remediate with assurance. See Meters.
2) Bed Canopies. Create a bedroom sleep sanctuary so you rest undisturbed by electromagnetic fields and wake up more refreshed in the morning. People who are electrically sensitive find shielding bed canopies essential, as do high performance athletes and, increasingly, business executives bathed in frequencies all day. See Bed Canopies.
3) Shielding Fabrics. Shielding fabric by the foot can be used to line curtains, walls and can even be put under carpets or desk chair pads to shield from the Wi-Fi of neighbors downstairs. See Shielding Fabric.
4) Shielding Films. Placing plastic shielding film on glass windows can significantly block out ambient radiofrequency radiation-from where it comes into the building most easily. See Shielding Films.
5) Shielding Paints. Metallic water-based paint can be placed under latex paints or wallpapers. Suitable for many types of exterior surfaces as well. Caution: Needs grounding and should not be installed without the services of an electrician. Also, do not put shielding paint on the walls if the room will contain RF emitting devices, such as computers, cell phones, wi-fi, compact fluorescent bulbs, etc. See Shielding Paints.
6) “Dirty Electricity” Meter and Filters. Increasingly, high frequency transients get on wall wiring and create unhealthy fields. This is especially so in downtown urban environments or where one is operating electronic equipment of various kinds. To see if you have “dirty electricity”, purchase a Dirty Power Meter, then neutralize transients by putting at least one Graham-Stetzer filter in one of the wall sockets on each circuit. See Dirty Electricity Filters and Meter.
7 ) Reducing Cell Phone Headsets, Cell Phone Cases This is the best headset-the one where the sound travels up the plastic air tube limiting the amount of radiation to your brain from either cell phones or portable phones. If you must use a cell phone, using this headset will reduce radiation to the brain significantly. Hands Free RF Reducing Headset. See RF-Reducing Cell Phone Headsets.

3-Axis RF Meter
Very Sensitive, Affordable, Feature-Packed RF/MW Meter
Covering a bandwidth of 50 MHz to 3.5 GHz, digital and analog, this instrument is incredibly versatile. It’s 3-axis, which means you won’t miss brief pulses that could disappear before you turn the meter to check another direction, but you can also select one axis at a time to help locate the source of the radiation. With 2½ samples/second it’s also fast, which is very important when tracking microwaves. But there’s more. It has a selectable audio alarm with adjustable sensitivity, selectable auto-off, and backlighting that automatically turns off after 30 seconds. Its 4-digit LCD display reads in either mV/m, A/m, W/cm², or W/m². The display also includes an analog bar graph, and is switch-selectable between instantaneous value, maximum value, or average value. But there’s more still – it also has a 200 point manual memory function, and is extremely sensitive. On the millivolt per meter scale its sensitivity is: 38 mV/m to 11 V/m (equivalent to .38 nanoWatt/cm² to 30 microWatt/cm²). It’s accuracy, incidentally, is a respectable ± 2.4 dB or better. Power is from a standard 9V battery, giving about 15 hours of continuous use. Comes with a 1-year warranty.
3-Axis RF Meter(Cat. #WAH495) …………… $199.95
8 GHZ RF METER
Very Wide Frequency Range
Extremely wide frequency rage radiofrequency (RF) meter—from 10MHz to 8 GHz. An exceptional value for the price in terms of the range of frequencies covered. Will pick up the new 5.8 GHz phones as well as other RF equipment such as DECT portable phones, wireless routers, baby monitors, etc. Will also measure some radar exposures that sweep through certain communities. 3-axis (isotropic) measurement. Extremely sensitive: 20 mV/m to 108 mV/m (or, 0.1 nanoWatt/cm2 to 3 milliWatt/cm2). Measures exposures in V/m, A/m, W/m² or W/cm². Displays instant value, max value or average value, where the average value interval is adjustable from 4 seconds to 15 minutes. Excellent ±1dB accuracy or better. One year factory warranty. (Uses 9V battery)
ESI 24 EMF MONITOR
Detects & Displays All 3 EMF Types at Once
The ESI 24 checks for all 3 types of EMF: magnetic fields, electric fields, and radiowaves/microwaves at the same time. Easy to read display indicates field strength with either a red, yellow, or green led lights, along with an audio confirmation of the field strength. The audio function is optional. The display shows 5 levels, ranging from extremely low to too strong for prolonged exposure and distinguishes how much for each radiation type. Very user friendly and very sensitive.
The ESI 24 has an Enhanced RF, allowing the user to measure only RF using all 15 LEDs, giving greater range and resolution. Sources detected by ESI 24: cell phone towers, cordless phones, wireless LAN, Wi-Fi systems, power lines, electrical installations and appliances, baby monitors and alarms, microwave ovens, cell phones, etc.
Operates for about 10 hours on one 9V battery (included). 2 year warranty.
For finding and measuring AC magnetic fields accurately and quickly, its hard to surpass this meter, for size and price. Designed by FW Bell, one of the best names in the business, this is a professional meter at an affordable price. It has the same accuracy and resolution (0.1 mG) as the earlier 4080 model, with a prettier case, a little higher range (599 mG), and a smarter display that includes Minimum, Maximum, and Peak Hold, a relative mode (for measuring field changes relative to a field level other than zero), and selectable milligauss or microtesla readout. It’s 3-axis design also lets you select any of the X, Y, or Z axes individually, making it easier to find the orientation of magnetic fields and their likely sources. It operates on four AAA batteries, with a jack for an external 5 VDC adapter (not included), and a USB port for operating on USB power (cable not included).
FW Bell has also decided with this upgrade to raise the low-frequency filter to 30 instead of 25 Hz, which makes it more stable during movements in the field.
DIGITAL COMBINATION METER (Magnetic & Electric Fields)
Accurate Single-Axis Gaussmeter and AC Electric Field Meter
This German meter, by GigaHertz Solutions, offers 2% accuracy (±20 digits) at 50/60 Hz, with a very flat frequency response, within 1 dB from about 16 Hz to 2,000 Hz (printed as a graph on the cover of the case). It’s overall sensitivity is much wider, though, from about 5 Hz to 7,000 Hz (at 3 dB accuracy). Its very low frequency cutoff makes it versatile but slow (on the magnetic setting), because whenever you move it you have to wait a couple seconds for it to settle down and give you an accurate reading. Remember that with a single-axis meter you really need to take three readings 90º from each other (find the orientation with the highest reading and visualize the meter flat against one surface of the corner of a box, then take readings flat against each of the other two sides) to get the true flux density. If two of the readings are much lower than the highest one, you can usually get away with just increasing the highest reading a bit and calling it right, but if one or more of the lower readings is close to the highest one, you need to do the calculation – square each reading, add them together, and take the square root of the sum.
Its magnetic resolution is extremely fine at 10 microgauss, but its top end at 20 mG will leave you wondering at an out-of-range indicator in areas with stronger fields. Another slow-down for those used to readings in milligauss is that this meter reads in nanotesla. That can be remedied by putting a decimal point on the display with a felt-tip pen between the second and third numerals from the right – as long as you remember to ignore it when reading electric fields.
The electric field setting ranges from 1 to 2,000 volts per meter, and actually uses the operator’s body in its detection, making it unique but a bit awkward. You have to plug a ground wire (generously long, at least) into the meter, with the other end grounded somewhere, and always keep the wire behind you while you hold the meter close to your body, making it necessary to get up close and personal with whatever you’re measuring. This does away with the need for a long handle so your body doesn’t interfere with the field, but since no one’s bodily electric field is exactly the same, how accurate can it be on the electric field setting? It is an accurate gaussmeter, however.
As with many of this company’s instruments, it’s well-made but design flaws limit its usefulness in the field. Their more expensive combination meter is actually less useful than this one because it’s bandwidth is too broad for ELF testing, which is what most AC gaussmeters are designed and used for. The audio output of this meter, incidentally, is not really sensitive enough to be very useful. The much cheaper Gauss Master, and Budget Buzz Stick (see below), are much better at audio indication of magnetic fields.
All in all, for the price, this is a very useful and accurate, if slow, gaussmeter, and also actually measures electric fields, if you don’t mind the inconveniences. It operates on a standard 9 volt battery, and comes with an excellent, very informative manual and a 2 year warranty.
BUDGET BUZZ STICK (Magnetic Fields)
The Intimate Sounds of ELF Magnetic Fields
This little unit won’t actually measure anything numerically, but is a great sniffer-outer of magnetic fields, letting you listen in to their hums, buzzes, clicks and squeals. It will even give you a relative indication of their field strength – louder means stronger. And because it doesn’t have to measure anything, it’s very fast, giving you a real-time indication of your ELF magnetic environment. It will show you magnetic phenomena that a gaussmeter is incapable of detecting, like very low 1 Hz clicks from a digital clock, computer clock, or thermostat, pulses from a cell phone battery, and very strange noises from some GFCI outlets that may make you wonder if there’s a listening device in your kitchen. The pitch of the sounds can even be like an audio frequency counter, giving you an indication of what frequency spikes and harmonics are present. The little pickup coil on a 2-foot cable can also find fields in hard-to-reach spots you could never get a gaussmeter into, much less read it. There’s a mono earphone jack that cuts off the speaker if you want to listen privately or don’t want to scare the cat.
And if grandma has trouble hearing phone conversations, you can always attach the little coil’s suction cup to the back of your phone, turn up the Buzz Stick’s volume, and everyone can listen in. It uses a standard 9 volt battery.
ULTRA SENSITIVE WIDEBAND RF METER
This is a very sensitive meter, designed to detect everything from 1-2500 MHz and can differentiate between distant sources like cell towers and nearby sources like cell phones. The meter has an analog readout on a relative scale to make direction finding fast and easy. Comes with instructions and 9V battery. Made in America.
GAUSS MASTER™ (Magnetic Fields)
The Little Meter That Can
This meter has actually been around a long time. It was originally called “Dr. Gauss,” and is probably the cheapest actually useable gaussmeter available (there are cheaper ones, but the key word is “useable”). Don’t depend on it for accuracy, though the analog meter is calibrated in milligauss, but it will definitely show you where magnetic fields are and give you a ballpark sense of their strength. It has a selectable super-sensitive setting (1 mG full scale); the normal scale is 1-10 mG. It also has a very useable audio output, which can impress children more than a meter needle when they hear it squeal insanely close to the microwave oven or the electric range.
Some annoying things about it are that it has no power LED (it actually does have one, but it’s inside the case, and you’d have to drill a hole right above it to see it), or anything else to tell you that it’s on if you’re in a low-field environment. That wouldn’t be much of a problem except that it shuts itself off automatically after five minutes, so you can sometimes think the fields are very low when the meter has just said goodnight. You can get around that, though, by just pressing the ON button more than once every 5 minutes (holding it down is what selects the more sensitive range). Another annoyance is that the audio output can’t be turned off.
The Gauss Master can also be affected by higher frequency radiation (cell phones and other RF), but this can be remedied if you suspect it by finding the highest reading and then shielding the meter with your body – holding it close and turning around in a circle (always keeping the meter oriented in the same absolute direction). If the readings don’t change significantly, you can usually assume that RF is not a problem. Remember, as with any single-axis meter, to take three readings 90º from each other (see the DIGITAL COMBINATION METER above).
It uses a standard 9 volt battery, and comes with useful instructions on how to conduct a magnetic field survey.
The Acoustimeter shows average, peak and peak hold levels of radio frequency electromagnetic fields. It covers the spectrum from TETRA up through and beyond the 5.6 GHz WiFi and WiMax frequencies. It is user-friendly and accurate. It has a digital readout with LED light and LED text, which is sensitive 0.02 V/m – 6.00 V/m and a sound output enabling you to hear the signal. These instrument is useful to even those with severe electrosensitivity.
The Acoustimeter is a broadband instrument that measures the radiation in the range 200 MHz to about 8000 MHz (8 GHz), which covers the frequencies used by most modern communication systems encountered in our daily life. The Acoustimeter was designed using the experience from many years of practical RF and microwave measurements.
The readings are shown on both an LCD display and two series of graduated LED lights. The LEDs update rapidly, and allow you to quickly gauge the levels in an area and find hot-spots.
Comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
The internal antenna is at the top rear of the case. It is best to measure signals with the source behind the instrument or to one or other side (particularly the left side away from the switches and volume control). It under-reads if the source is in front of the meter as the LCD display acts as an RF screen.
This is a reliable meter for an excellent price. Use for checking sources of radiofrequency fields, such as smart meters, Wi-Fi, cell towers, cellphones and other wireless devices. Field strength is measured in V/m and is indicated on an 8 LED light display, so it is very easy to understand. Includes an optional sound feature that allows you to hear the intensity of the field and an alarm to indicate higher exposure levels. The Acousticom2 covers a range of 200 – 8000 MHz with ±6dB accuracy. A 9V battery is included.
• Range (Peak Display): 0.01 – 6.00 volts per meter (V/m)
• 0.01 V/m increments; (0.5 to 100,000 µW/m²)
• Power draw: 40 to 90 mA
• Battery life: Up to 10 hours
• Size: L 110mm x W 63mm x D 21mm; Weight: 140g with battery
Note: Fields are best measured when the instrument is behind the source, as the internal antenna is at the upper back of the meter’s case.

4) Shielding Films.
SCOTCHTINT™ SHIELDING WINDOW FILM
Windows are the most important areas of a room to shield, because they’re the principal portals for RF/MW radiation. This window film will reduce exposure to radiation in the 30 MHz to 4.5 GHz range (the frequency limits of the testing) – by more than 22 dB at cell phone frequencies. You simply cut it to size, peel the backing, wet it, and apply, then squeeze out any air pockets. It’s good to cut it a little large so you can then use an exacto knife to trim it as close to the frame as possible, especially along the vertical edges.
In addition to RF shielding, this film reduces heat gain in the summer by up to 79%, and heat loss in the winter, and makes windows opaque from the outside when the sun is on them, without reducing visibility from the inside. This can mean saving about one ton of air conditioning for every 100 sq. ft. of sun-exposed glass, and a reduction of up to 30% of heat loss in the winter. It also reduces glare and blocks 98% of UV rays, protecting interior surfaces from fading.
You can find professional installers in most areas if you don’t want to do it yourself. For Installation Instructions Click Here.

CLEAR-SHIELD™ Plastic Film
Non-Light-Reflecting RF Shielding
Sometimes you don’t want light-reflecting RF shielding, and this film lets in 80% of the light while reducing RF transmission. Sputter-coated with silver-indium to make it highly conductive (27 ohms/sq.), it makes an excellent electric field and RF shield. Five mil thick and easy to cut to cover car windows, VDT and TV screens, MW-oven windows, eyeglasses – even make a shield for your cell phone and portable phone. It’s heat-stable up to 80°C (176°F). The width is 2 feet – specify number of ft when ordering by quantity.
Microwave Absorbing Carbon Laminate
Non-woven carbon fiber offers shielding as well as high microwave absorption. Appealing as a shielding option when you’d rather not use only reflecting shielding (to protect people in the vicinity whom the waves might be reflecting towards). The carbon material has a plastic laminate on it for ease of handling, reduced carbon dust and durability.
Carbon base material (without plastic laminate): Width: 48 inch (1219 mm), Weight: 34 g/m², Thickness: 18 mil (0.445 mm), Resistivity: ~3 Ohms per square, Tensile: 47 N/15mm. Relatively hard, inflexible material compared to fabrics though very light weight. Air and light do not penetrate. Use to line walls or for partitions or to line heavy curtains.
Please note, with some lighter weight shielding fabrics, which may not shield 100%, sometimes just using carbon laminate underneath the fabric to absorb stray microwaves can do the job. It is always best to purchase an Electrosmog Meter. to assess the RF/MV remediation results. Sometimes more than one layer of the carbon laminate is needed to reduce the microwaves to zero, but note with the carbon laminate this can be accomplished at a much lower cost than using multiple layers of the shielding fabrics.
Also helpful to absorb stray microwaves on rooftops where an antenna has been placed. Place this absorber underneath a metal shield.
5) Shielding Paints.
Y-SHIELD Indoor/Outdoor Paint
High Frequency Shielding Paint
This is a water-based paint for shielding interior or exterior surfaces from radio frequency and microwave radiation up to 18 GHz (see graph below), reducing RF/MW by 99.99% (40 dB) with one layer. With a pure acrylic binder, it adheres well to masonry, cement, plaster, construction board, polystyrene, latex paint, and many other surfaces, is frost-resistant, dries quickly, cleans up with water, and comes ready to use.
The surface of this paint is highly conductive (about 10 ohms per square), and attenuation is consistent no matter what the polarization of the signals because of its holohedral carbon structure, without fibers or meshes. About 10% of the shielding is accomplished through the carbon’s good RF dissipation, which reduces reflections from both outside and inside the area to be shielded. It does need to be grounded.
It’s RoHS compliant, comes in black only, covers 50 to 100 square feet (5 to 10 square meters) per liter, and can be covered with latex paint, wallpaper, etc. It has a shelf life (unopened) of 15 months.
The minimum temperature for applying it is 1°C (33.8°F), and it can be shipped in the winter or any other season. It weighs 3.2 pounds per liter.
6) “Dirty Electricity” Meter and Filters.
DIRTY POWER METER
Low Frequency Noise Detector
Not for testing Washington politicians, this meter lets you detect levels of dirty power in home or office wiring, which can be corrected by installing Graham-Stetzer Filters (see below). The filters mitigate low frequency noise between 4 and 100 kilohertz, and this meter is designed to measure microsurges – voltage spikes – in that frequency range and display them as a numerical equivalent, in volts per second, of such noise.
No batteries are required – just plug it into a standard 2-or-3 prong or GFCI outlet and read the display. It works for 60 Hz, 120 Volt North American and 50 Hz, 240 Volt European systems (but an ordinary plug adapter is needed for European or other electrical outlets). By turning on various appliances (compact fluorescent bulbs, blenders, computers, laser printers, etc.) one at a time and taking readings, you can get a sense of which are the biggest polluters. The rule of thumb is that any outlet reading higher than 50 should get a filter – especially if it’s in an area frequently occupied (bedroom, office, etc.).
High Frequency Pollution Meter for Wiring:
GRAHAM-STETZER FILTERS—ELECTROMAGNETIC POLLUTION REMOVERS
Dirty Power Cleaner
Wherever there are active dimmer switches, electric motors, fluorescent lights (including CFLs), transformers, and many other electric-noise producing products, you also find dirty power in the form of microsurges – spikes of higher-frequency on the normally extremely low frequency (ELF) power in our homes and offices. This higher-frequency noise has been associated with symptoms of electrosensitivity (skin rashes, insomnia, depression, headaches, inability to concentrate, memory problems, fatigue, etc.), and possibly even more serious diseases like cancer. These small filters, when inserted into wall outlets, reduce this higher frequency noise, resulting in relief for many people.
They use no extra electricity but simply act to clean the electricity moving through the electrical system, which can make other electrical appliances run more efficiently and may actually reduce your utility bills. Each can easily be moved from one outlet to another as needed (for a detector of dirty power, see the DIRTY POWER METER above).
Though they can be ordered one at a time, the normal package of 20 units will clean the power of an entire, average-size home or office.

7) Reducing Cell Phone Headsets, Cell Phone Cases.
AIR TUBE HEADSETS
“Minimizes Radiation Around the Head”
If you must use a cell phone to make a call, distance is very important. Using a headset to increase the distance from the phone to your head dramatically reduces your radiation exposure.
AIR TUBE headsets are designed to minimize your exposure even more because there are no speakers or electronics (no EMF) in the earpiece itself. The sound is carried through a tube into your earpiece, so that radiation and EMF can’t travel through the wire into your ear.
Ear-bud style with soft rubber cushions. The cord is 39 in. and has a built-in microphone. Works with most phone models. Patented. Please check your phone for which plug style you need.

Laboratory Tested to Reflect up to 99% of Microwave Radiation Away from the Body
Laboratory Tested to Reflect up to 99% of Microwave Radiation Away from the Body
When carrying a cell phone in your pocket, your vital and reproductive organs and all systems of your body are being exposed to microwave radiation, which dissipates internal. The Pocket Patch is designed to protect your body from 99% of the radiation being emitted by your cell phone while carrying it. Made of high performance shielding material, Pocket Patch is an iron-on patch that reflects radiation away from your body. Easy to apply. Invert pocket, cut patch to size as needed (the bigger area the better) and iron on. Use patch on jackets or other loose fitting clothes—not on skin-tight clothing. Just make sure that it is placed between the phone and your body—NOT on the outward side of the pocket as that would reflect the fields back towards you.
– Pocket Patch fabric: 90% cotton, 9.5% copper and 0.5% silver- Dimensions: 14cm x 9.5cm (5.5″ x 3.75″)- Gentle on skin, washable, durable and comfortable- Care Instructions: Machine wash, cold water. No bleach. Do not dry clean.
Each package contains 3 patches.
SHIELDED LEATHER CELLPHONE CASE
While you can use this good-looking leather cell phone case in your pocket or purse, it is also useful for those wanting to put their cell phone in a holster attached to the belt. Very durable. Flap closes securely with a magnet. Belt clip can be horizontal or vertical. Shield your body from cell phone radiation! Very important for pregnant moms or couples wanting to conceive. Please note, the shielding is on the side of the case where the belt clip is. This shields the radiation on the side of your body (or the side of your purse facing your body), but still allows the phone to ring. If you want more complete shielding, we suggest you turn off the phone.

OVER THE HEAD HEADSET
‘Hands Free’ over-the-head headset for use with cell phones, and also with tape or CD players. This is for people who prefer for comfort the ‘over-the-head’ style to headsets with only an earbud. Significantly reduces cell phone radiation to your head. You can use this with the microphone on either side. Also features an adjustable boom microphone for optimum voice output and a four-foot cord. Comfortable, solid feel that stays in place better than headsets with earbuds and goes on quicker.
FERRITE SNAP BEAD
An RF-Sponge for Wiring
Headset wires (and anything else metallic) can become an antenna for high-frequency signals and noise, and transmit the RF to your head. A ferrite bead acts like a sponge for high frequencies and keeps them from continuing on to the ends of the wires closer to your body. The two halves of the small bead snap together around the wires and “soak up” the RF. They’re very light, grey in color, and about an inch long, with a minimum of 50 ohms impedence. They fit wires 5 mm in diameter or less (you can knot smaller wires at each end of the bead to keep it in place).
Ultra Low EMF Telephone
This is a fabulous home or office phone for people who are sensitive to the strong magnetic fields associated with the handset, speakerphone or telephone base of many conventional telephones.
Desktop or wall mount corded telephone (no microwaves) combined with a special ultra low EMF headset. The special headset cord is about 3 feet long and uses a clear plastic tube to carry the sound to your ear. No electronics, wires or magnets are near your head. The cord can be extended up to 9 feet with optional extension cord, sold separately. Reduction in magnetic fields is significant.
Features speed dial, redial, speakerphone and a hold button. Phone is white, and has volume control. The phone itself does not have any shielding or EMF reduction technology. Instead the benefit derives from the jack for the special headset. Please note if you already have a phone with a headset jack you only will need to buy the headset alone and not the telephone.
Ultra Low EMF Telephone – White (Cat. #WAH725W) …… $99.95
Need extra length? Connect up to 4 of these extensions between the headset and the phone base. Each extension is 6 feet long.
Already have a phone with a headset jack? You can order just the special headset.

Check Your Outlets for Improper Wiring and Faulty Ground
The Socket Tester checks your electric outlets for improper wiring and faulting ground. Electrical outlets can be improperly wired or damaged in a number of ways: a wire can short or fray, a wire can disconnect or corrode, or the wires can be connected to the wrong contact. Some outlets, especially older ones, don’t have any ground at all. These issues can potentially cause fire hazard or shock, are a problem for polarized appliances, and definitely a problem if you are using the outlet’s ground connection to ground your shielding materials, appliances or other grounding items like an Earthing sheet or pad.
Large LCD display lights up to indicate all the following possible issues:
– Voltage on ground connection
– Disconnected Ground
– Disconnected Neutral
– Disconnected Hot
– Interchanged Neutral and Hot
– Interchanged Ground and Hot
– Interchanged Ground and Hot, Neutral missing
– GFI function
Don’t ground to your electrical outlet without testing it first! North American plug only. Rated for 120V, 50/60 Hz.
BEDSIDE DEMAND SWITCH
When you really want to get serious about low EMF in your bedroom, consider getting a “Demand Switch”. This allows you to turn your fuses off from your bedside, and to turn them back on again easily if you need to get up in the middle of the night.
Note: A Demand Switch requires installation by a trained electrician, but it is very worth it in our experience! Many people notice a difference in sleep quality in just one night with the fuse off to the bedroom! Try it first by turning off the fuses manually one night (except for the refrigerator), using a flashlight to get back to your bed, and see if you notice a difference. Then get serious and get an electrician to install a convenient Demand Switch at your bedside for your convenience.
Unless one’s home wiring is encased in a protective metal cable (which most is not), we are surrounded by electric and magnetic fields from wall wiring as well as from any electric and electronic appliances in the bedroom. One is impacted from the wiring’s electric fields in your bedroom, in adjacent rooms, and from rooms above and below your bedroom room. Installing a Demand Switch assures you will not be exposed to these fields while you sleep, which will take a tremendous cumulative stress off of your body. One great feature of the Demand Switch is you can even adjust the activation threshold from 0-100 mA so low amperage devices such as luminescent nightlights can still be used.
Note: What you cannot control are 3 phase (240V) circuits like the ones for your electric stove and dryer.
-Installation Must be Done by a Licensed Electrician according to the electric code.
-North American style only.
-Warning stickers for breaker panel and receptacles must be installed and are included.
-You will need a Demand Switch for each circuit you want to control. Most people turn off the electricity to the circuit that contains their bedroom, but all circuits could be turned off if the house is large and there are multiple bedrooms in other areas, if desired.
- Installation must be done by a licensed electrician according to the electrical code for each State / Province (USA / Canada).
- North American style only.
- Warning stickers for breaker panel and receptacles are supplied and must be installed.

11) Computer Accessories.
Ground Your Laptop
Most laptops are not grounded, even plugged in. Ungrounded electronics may emit high electric fields. Grounding helps to minimize this. The 6 foot ground cord plugs into the USB port and the other end plugs into a grounded wall outlet.
Use an outlet tester, like The Socket Tester above, to check your outlet for proper grounding before connection a laptop to ground.
This keyboard allows you to reduce your EMF exposure by increasing the distance between you and the computer. This is especially important with laptops, as their built-in keyboards are directly over the greatest source of EMF in the computer. The keyboard has 107 keys and connects to your computer’s USB port with a 54 inch long cable.
