How can I build an electricity monitoring and control system? Answered
The service will be to install energy monitoring equipment in a premises which records kW hours electricity usage and also voltage fluctuations. This data will be collected every few seconds, but summarized every few minutes. The recorded data will be transmitted to local data hubs and then over the internet to analysis software providing outputs which are meaningful to management. Several monitoring devices will be deployed in a building so that data can be collected in individual circuits or individual electrical machines. Additionally there is a requirement to control devices remotely so that they may be switched or moderated remotely. Thus for example, a heater might have a thermostat setting adjusted or be switched on or off.
