The main objective of this project is to send a message in the event of energy meter being tampered. The alert message is sent via GSM modem to the concerned authority. As electricity consumption is increasing, so is the attempt for tampering the energy meter.

Identifying a tampered meter is only possible when the electricity board’s authority manually checks it, which is a time consuming and costly method. This proposed system is a possible solution to detect meter tampering.

Energy meter is integrated with the system in such a way that if anybody opens the cover of the meter, an IR sensing arrangement sends a command to the microcontroller (8051 family).

Microcontroller then senses a change in the logical input from IR sensor and gives command to the GSM modem to send an SMS to the designated mobile phone number stored in the controller’s memory. This information also gets displayed on an LCD.

The project in future can be enhanced by having an added feature of disconnecting the supply to the load by electricity department through SMS in case of any tampering of energy meter.

I came back to purchase kit from Edgefx because we have already done the mini project at this institute. Amazing support from your team. Presently you have a system that works and is today sufficient.

The process of doing project is straight forward and clear so it took minimum time for us. We got complete notes, material and components related to project. We recommend Edgefx kits for all those who want to manage things by themselves.
