Another advantage is that the utility company knows in an emergency whether power is being used. A few years ago we had city-wide storm damage with thousands of people without power for days, many for over a week. When power started coming back on, Pepco couldn't determine which houses and blocks were back up without driving up and down the streets, which was still pretty impossible with snow, ice, downed trees, etc. So they would put out an announcement that everything was fixed and wait for phone calls. Neither reassuring nor efficient. I don't even play a physicist on TV but I suspect that cell phones, DVRs, TVs, leaking electrical wired, etc. are cumulatively more danger than smart meters which are not even in our living spaces.
