|How much do you pay for the electricity at home? Have you ever thought of saving energy? But do you even know how much energy is consumed by each appliance?
In order to spend electricity efficiently, I came up with the idea of developing an administrative tool that not only controls the power, but also keeps track of each device's energy consumption. I am trying to implement this on simplified house model for this project. The tool will enable user to (1) remote control power at home on web application using smartphone and (2) monitor detailed information- time, amount, and usage pattern- on energy consumption of electronics or lighting at home through charts- also on the web application. I expect this tool to allow people to be aware of their spending and to cut down electricity bill.
I am planning to construct a house model with snap-in receptacles so that I can plug in actual electronic devices that use 120V AC. I would also need components to measure power dissipation of each receptacle.
There will be a designed PCB that runs all components in the house model. PCB will also include esp32- this allows hosting a web server- and a micro-controller to display information on web server so that it allows user to remote control power and monitor energy consumption.
