Abstract: The prepaid meter is important in making the consumer having sense about his/her energy consumption which is important in eliminating the difficulties facing the electrical utility employee in getting the reading of the conventional electromechanical meter and eliminating any error incurred in bill issuing .There were so many issues coming in the process of conventional energy resources ( Electromechanical Induction and Electronic Energy Meter) like-consumes considerable amount of power, incorrect magnitude of fluxes and phase angles etc. To overcome these drawbacks we proposing a smart IOT- Internet of things based energy meter using Arduino and GSM Module. This system not only solves the problem of manual meter reading but also provide additional features such as power disconnection due to outstanding dues, power reconnection after making the necessary payments, power cut alert, tampering alert etc. instantly.
Keywords: IOT, Arduino, GSM, Energy Meter.
