What your utility doesn’t want you to see: A smart meter teardown

OK, maybe hacker-types shouldn’t see this, but the iFixit crew has done a teardown of an Elster smart meter, pulling off all the electronics, chips, radios and casing. In order to do the teardown iFixit had to break the security seal, so basically don’t try this at home unless you want to make your power company mad at you (or maybe you do if you’re in PG&E territory).
