Abstract


Objectives: The main objective of this paper is to develop an android application that communicates with a smart meter through Bluetooth using Modbus RTU as the application layer protocol. Methods: The android application will read the data from a smart meter and show it graphically. It will display the timely data such as energy consumption unit and other details (Current in line, Voltage) in a graph. Through this application, the consumers can easily know their electricity usage at any instance and adjust their usage pattern accordingly to reduce their energy consumption and costs. Findings: By implementing this mobile application it is possible to provide household electrical monitoring services remotely in a handheld device. This proposed system will improve the existing application in the industry by storing the data in the internal database and provides better results than the existing application. Applications/Improvements: The application overcomes the disadvantages of manual metering like mistakes in reading, errors of leakage and the pain of hiring huge manpower.
