Wireless home energy monitor

Here is a project that allows you to keep track of your household power consumption over a wireless connection. Jone’s energy monitor project counts electricity meter‘s indicator pulses, which the electrical distribution company uses to bill you. Once it reads 5 minutes worth of consumption data, it is broadcast to a web server over a XBee module.

Be advised that some power distribution companies don’t allow any electronics to be placed near or around their power meters.

  1. I have a project similar to this one – it was made for 3 – phase systems but can also be used for sigle phase systems. it gathers data through and ADE7758 energy metering chip, a PIC16F877 will then packet the data send it through a wireless transceiver. On the other end is an embeded webserver made fro man atmega32 and a wiznet module.

    heres the link if you wanna see it:http://labratsgonewild.itenthusiasts.net/wp/2011/07/liptondron-a-realtime-wireless-energy-utilization-monitoring-system/
