GSM Based Household Power Management System
This GSM Based Household Power Management System is designed and realized for current sensing and control of electrical appliances. The proposed prototype consists of a plug & PIC microcontroller which is serially interfaced to GSM modem, ACS 712 current sensor & TRIAC driver. Mobile phone is used here to control the electric appliances like ON or OFF action and track the current sensing data from the particular device with the help of ACS712 Hall Effect Current sensor. This system has economic features of soft installation and low cost as well as hardware and software can be customized and extended. Moreover the proposed scheme has some advantages like user can fudge any electrical appliances at any time, letting their home smart and automated.
