Abstract: 

Power consumption and electrical appliances are growing rapidly as technology advances, so does the need to identify which appliances are consuming how much energy for the benefit of both environment and economic point of view. Based on the current smart home systems present in the market that can monitor power and have a proper infrastructure but have poor data analytics at the user end. In this project, we developed a device that measures, logs and represents the measurement to the power consumption data of the Electrical appliances to the user in a proper user-friendly manner by connecting to the same Wi-Fi of the smart plugs. The developed device, acts as a server to communicate with the energy measuring devices to extract the data, records and logs it in a database, and provides it to the user on-demand in a simple Graphic User Interface.
