With an ever-increasing demand on the electrical grid and an increase in electrical consumer goods per household, effective power management and monitoring for home users is a must. The objective of this project is to create a consumer outlet and companion phone application. The power outlet will measure power draw on each socket and report these measurements via an embedded system, wirelessly, to the application. The application will then allow for setting custom power draws at which an individual socket will switch off if exceeded and will display how much a given outlet or individual socket is costing per unit time at current power/electrical rates. The application will also allow for switching on or off any sockets akin to a smart home device and labeling each outlet and socket within the application. The application will enable sending push notifications, if a dangerous or undesirable power draw/current is reached. These features will enable consumers to be more aware of the electricity they are consuming and its associated cost.
