Power Theft Detection and Alert System using IOT

Main Article Content

K.Kumaran, et. al.


Presently smart home, smart meters and Internet of Things are being included hugely to supplant the conventional analog meters. This helps in digitaizing the collected data and the reading in the meters. This data can be transmitted through wireless medium and minimizes the manual work. However, this also involves the risk of theft. These theft are not detected accurately due to the lack of certain methods in the existing solution. The objective of the proposed project is to architect a system to track the electricity spent per load and to trace, banish the theft of electricity  in current  line and  meter. This project also involves informing the Electricity Board officials about the theft occurred by using IOT. A network of devices such as sensors are connected together which helps in transmitting transmit real-time data over the Net. Here, the Arduino Uno is used to recogonise energy theft and pass the information to the GSM module which in turn passes the information of the theft to the EB. The practical usage of this project,saves a lot of electricity thus improving the country's economic conditions.
