AbstractMicrocontroller-Based Power Monitoring and Switching Device (PMAS) for Appliances over a Zigbee Network aims to develop a system that can provide aid to its user in consuming power more efficiently. This study aims to create a system for monitoring electrical consumption of home appliances through an Android application. It will also be focusing on the recording of electrical data so that its user may be able to track how much power they are consuming over a certain period of time. The microcontroller in the power monitoring and switching (PMAS) adapter will read and measure electrical data, such as voltage, current, and power. This data will then be transmitted to a hub that will be utilizing a ZigBee network, connected in a star topology. This gateway sends and receives data to and from the web server database, which the Android App accesses to display the information to the user through text and graphs. The app also has switches that can turn the adapter on or off. This study provides users with an easy to install and non-intrusive system to monitor and control the power consumption of home appliances using an Android app.
