Every month we can see a person standing in front of our house from Electricity board or water Board whose duty? is? to read? the energy meter/water meter and handover the bills (electric or water) to the owner of that house . This is nothing but meter reading. According to that reading we have to pay the bills. The main drawback of this system is that person has to go area by area and he has to read the meter of every house and handover the bills. The Electricity board and Water authority has to give privileges for these people to do their duty monthly. The thing is, Government will not appoint any particular persons for this duty. The people working in these boards will go on a particular day and do their duty leaving all their pending works. Due to this, their work will be delayed and this is great loss for government. To overcome this drawback we have come up with an idea and this idea will help the government and it will save the time of the employees working in these boards as system supports if we use smartcard to implement prepaid energy meter then it will be helpful to store data in a smartcard of that user.??
The aim of the project is to automate the prepaid billing of energy meter and water meter. In this project the front end is User friendly and the employees can work on this software with minimum knowledge of Computers. Employees can read the meter by sitting in the Office. For front end designing Java is used.
The purpose of this project is to remote monitor the Domestic Energy meter. This system enables the Electricity Department to read the meter readings regularly without the person visiting each house. This can be achieved by the use of a microcontroller unit that monitors and records the Energy Meter readings.
The conventional meter reading? system for electricity is that an assigned person visits each house and read the meter readings manually. Then the collected meter readings are used for bill calculation. This manual process can become very time consuming and tiresome. It can cause human error and can open an opportunity for corruption done by the human meter reader. Thus the conventional meter reading system can become inaccurate and inefficient.
This Microcontroller based system records the energy meter readings and the live meter reading can be sent to the Electricity department on request.
