The main aim of this project is to read the value from the energy meter and pass this read data to electricity board. This project eliminates lot of manpower and sends bill through SMS to the users. This energy meter will be interfaced with the microcontroller. The microcontroller reads the data from the energy meter and passes this data to the GSM modem. This data is also displayed on the LCD.
Automatic power meter reading system using GSM network
The modem provides the communication interface. It transports device protocols transparently over the network through a serial interface. The GSM modem is a wireless modem that works with a GSM wireless network. A wireless modem behaves like a dial-up modem. The main difference between them is that a dial-up modem sends and receives data through a fixed telephone line while a wireless modem sends and receives data through radio waves. This modem sends the data, which is read from the energy meter by the microcontroller, to the user mobile.
The bill generation and due dates will be indicated through status LEDs
