In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to make a Smart AC Energy Meter by using Arduino board. By using this Energy Meter, you can measure and monitor Voltage, Current and Power consumption of system. Also it has interlocking feature like protection against Over voltage and Under voltage, automatic shut-down when power consumption is higher then its registered value etc. It is collecting values like voltage, current, power and status from grid and pushing it to Google Firebase Realtime Database. Through App users can monitor their house's power consumption, voltage etc. Also they can control appliances through internet. As now only user can only 2 appliance but in future it will be upgraded.
The goal of creating this project is to aware people about energy consumption and its optimization technique. This would reduce their energy costs, as well as conserve energy.
Of course, a lot of commercial devices already exist for energy monitoring, but I wanted to build my own version which shall be simple and low cost.
