Abstract

This paper presents an implementation of a smart meter monitoring system based on Arduino platform and accessible from Android mobile devices. On the one hand, it has been developed a measure device, based on Arduino, which monitors the power consumption from each home device and sends this information to a server. On the other hand, users can see by means of their mobile devices the power consumption in real time. Also, users can know the detailed consumption from previous months. This way, the developed application is aim to satisfy two different consumer needs: improve their economy and their sustainability in the way electrical power is consumed.
