Intelligent Energy Meter for Optimal Energy Utilization using Mobile Communication
The reading of energy meter is very tedious as well as an expensive job to do. The meter reading is taken manually by an individual to generate the bill, which will then passed into a software to automate billing and payment. A new network communication for the reading of energy meter by short message service (SMS) technology and software system besides the pre-existing energy meters. An Arduino will be integrated with the energy meter to read ad store the usage of energy. Energy meter gives the readings to Arduino and it sends it to the consumer via SMS. This is useful for the consumer to regularly check their power consumption and manage their energy usage according to their need and budget. The user can check their energy usage from anywhere by using their mobile phones an additional feature of load control is also provided to the user.
