IOT based application for monitoring electricity power consumption in home appliances

Korakot Luechaphonthara, Vijayalakshmi A


Internet of Things is one of the emerging techniques that help in bridging the gap between the physical and cyber world. In the Internet of Things, the different smart objects connected, communicate with each other, data is gathered from the smart objects and based on the need of the users, and the data gathered are queried and sent back to the user. IoT helps in monitoring electrical and physical parameters. Electricity consumption from electronic devices is one among such parameters that need to be monitored. The development of energy efficient schemes for the IoT is a challenging issue as the IoT becomes more complex due to its large scale the current techniques of wireless sensor networks cannot be applied directly to the IoT. To achieve the green networked IoT, this paper proposes a Wi-Fi enabled simple low cost electricity monitoring device that can monitor the electricity consumption on home appliances which helps to analyses the consumption of electricity on a daily and weekly basis.
