In the age of digitalization, Internet-based applications are gaining popularity at an exponential rate. Today, everyone wants to make their lives easier and devices smarter. In the age of automation, most of the devices we interact with on a day-to-day basis, for example, air conditioners, refrigerators, etc. are made increasingly intelligent to simplify our lives and make it comfortable. Using the principles of IoT and AI, we can create home automation devices such as automatic security devices and e-meters that make our homes smarter and more secure. Keeping a track of how much electricity is consumed per household becomes imperative seeing the rate at which global warming is increasing. Gone are the days where users had to go to meter reading room and take down readings. By employing IoT concepts, we can simplify this tedious process and record the reading over cloud for easy accessibility. The major advantage of digitalizing the process is that the user has the facility to view his consumption remotely, i.e., anywhere in the world. This also enables the user to keep a log of how many units of electricity a device is consuming and with how much amount the user is being charged fairly or not.
