Development of Energy Monitoring and Control System for Smart Home

Authors(2) :-Nisarga S, Rakesh M

Energy saving is important because energy use effects the environment and everyone in it. When conservation of energy is done, savings on the cost of living is achieved. Energy efficiency is a goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. The first step for saving energy is in home environment. This is possible by automating the home, so that energy saving can be done. This paper proposes a development of energy monitoring and control system for smart home. To full fill the purpose of every day energy consumption monitoring and home appliances control to full fill the purpose of prevention of energy wastage when appliances are not in use. The Data collector collects the data from energy monitoring, motion & temperature monitoring modules and the status of the home appliances from Opto-isolator TRIAC driver circuit module. The collected data is sent to the cloud through MODBUS to GPRS gateway. This data can be viewed in web application. For easy control and monitoring of the system mobile application is used, to which data is sent using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules. This helps in local as well as remote control of home appliances. Control of home appliances is achieved using Opto-isolator TRIAC based driver circuit with Zero Crossing Detection(ZCD) feature. This proposed system will help to improve the efficient use of electricity by monitoring the everyday consumption as well as controlling the usage of electricity by home appliances, which in turn helps in energy saving.
