The main objective of the project is to develop a GSM based energy meter reading system and load control through SMS. Electricity department sends employees to take meter reading every month, which is an expensive and time consuming job.

The proposed project provides a convenient and efficient method to avoid this problem. The electricity department and the user can get the readings of the energy meter of consumers via SMS. The loads can also be controlled by the user of this system via SMS using this project.

A microcontroller input is effectively interfaced to a digital energy meter that takes the reading from the energy meter and displays the same on an LCD. The reading of the energy meter is also sent to the control room by an SMS via SIM loaded GSM modem.

This GSM modem can also receive commands from the cell phone to control the owner’s electrical loads. It uses a standard digital energy meter that delivers output pulses to the microcontroller to perform counting for necessary action. On receiving command it can switch ON/OFF the loads.

Further this project can be interfaced with a non volatile memory IC like EEPROM along with a keypad so that the user the change the mobile number as per the requirement.

Q & A
Q:  Can I use domestic electrical appliances as loads?
A:  Yes, one can use domestic appliances as loads, provided their rating is not more than 200W.
Q:  Can I switch on the loads from anywhere and how?
A:  Yes,one can switch on the loads from anywhere and it can be done by sending an SMS.
Q:  How should one feed the phone number?
A:  One can feed the phone number by giving a missed call to the SIM number of the GSM interfaced to the controller.
Q:  Can we use this system in home directly?
A:  Yes, this system can be used at home directly.

I got to know about Edgefx through Net while I was searching for GSM based projects in Google.I find the project Title Interesting so decided to buy that project from Edgefx. I liked the Technical support provided by Edgefx.The kit got delivered to me on time as mentioned on the site and with all the right components.Before placing order I have taken help from Edgefx through chat where I got clarified with my doubts about delivery time, COD service available or not and some technical clarification on output. I would like to name Ms Suvarna who guided me while placing order.I would like to suggest you to provide PCB design or the software name since I was in need of that but still I have managed to do the PCB design by myself with the help of the video provided by Edgefx on “How to design PCB” and with some of my technical clarifications. So, at the end I was successful in designing my PCB and the faculty of us is very happy.
