Prepaid Energy Meter with Theft Detection

Categories: ,

Product Description


what is the project?

To monitor internal and external energy theft, a proposed prepaid energy meter with theft detection is very useful. When energy reaches the energy meter, internal energy theft occurs whereas before the energy reaches external energy theft. This proposed system is used for theft detection using prepaid energy meter mandatorily.


How the project works?

This project helps the user to pay the right amount of mo way for the exact amount of power used. This project works with the help of AVR microcontroller, GSM modem, required current sensors, energy meter and the loads. To use this project you will have to connect the system with a GSM modem. The the user number should be added to this system for sending and receiving messages. When a theft of energy occurs internally or externally, a message will be sent to user or the authorized personnel. The message can be received even if the mobile is on low balance.
