In the new paradigm of Internet of Things (IoT), many objects will be on the network having capability of sensing, computing and communicating with each other directly or indirectly. The most important aspect of it is that, such network will be invisible but intelligent to complete the entire task through Internet. Utilization of such efficient ubiquitous network will have number of applications like in social, industrial, entertainment, health care etc. The efficient electricity management is the major need to be considered due to limited natural resource of energy generation. The major issue in not to generate the resource but to handle the generated resource efficiently. In this paper we have proposed the solution for electricity management through Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) in the IoT paradigm, where the sensing nodes deployed on the high electricity consumption devices will monitor the daily consumption and update it through smart device on the Internet for reference. Smart electric devices can be controlled to leave in dormant state when not needed. This will help to budget the need of electricity planning at a large scale automatically.

Electricity Management

From the survey and the proposed approach it will be possible to effectively control electricity utilization in residential / commercial areas. Use of wireless sensor network will enables remote monitoring and controlling the usage of electricity in an efficient and easy way. The IoT or IP-enabled approach helps to access information from individual sensor node any time from any location without the need of any external web interface to connect with internet. By using these measures for electricity management it will be possible to reduce the overall electricity consumption in commercial areas by 10 – 15 %.
