IoT Based Smart Energy Meter using Node MCU
The current electricity billing system with reference to the electricity meter reading has many drawbacks like extra bill amount, notification from electricity board even after paying the bills etc. This paper will discuss the idea of smart energy meter based on Internet-of-Things (IoT). This smart meter is able to absolutely remove the involvement of any other party between the service provider and customer. Moreover, it can allow an individual to observe the consumption of energy at anytime and anywhere via internet. The use of Wi-Fi module provides the notification through mail. The meter reading with total fare can be spotted on the web page. In the proposed method, Atmel microcontroller is used as it is energy efficient, faster and has two Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitters (UARTs).
