Energy management and control has been a great deal in the world today and tremendous effort has been done by scientists to achieve this. Power companies employ auditing personnel to help in the management and monitoring of power and this is very costly and inaccurate for this reason we came up with a device. Internet based energy monitoring and audit management system is basically a meter that measures energy consumption parameters and provides information on this too. What makes our project unique is that it does away with manual auditing processes as well as problems evident in it .The system provides full information of power consumption generally and to individual machines. The system has a microcontroller which is the main part of it. The microcontroller coordinates the working of the device and gives feedback through GSM. The system also has power regulators which smoothen the power. It also has change over relay that helps in the shifting from using either DC to AC or vice versa. This device is of better quality compared to the meters which are currently in the market because it provides auditing and can work with both AC and DC power. This can enable one to minimize electricity cost by using solar energy during the day and the AC during the night. Furthermore, the system helps in controlling individual appliances.
