One of the instrumental functional overheads in many commercial edifices and industrial plants is the electricity bill. The design and development of a Smart Power monitoring device used to make monitoring on the electrical parameters represented as voltage, current, and power of Wasit university buildings. The system has a unit with smart sensing to detect and control the electrical devices employed for daily activities by following different tariff rates. It has the capability to decrease consumer costs improving grid stability. A developed model was broadly examined and experimental results comparing these results with devices of conventional measuring. The Arduino based wireless powering meter is a non-invasive existing meter for domiciliary power with a WI-FI Connection. A split-core is used to measure the current transformers. 802.11b connection is a means for transmitting data through the home’s wireless router to the base station and monitoring web portal based on wireless sensor network. A clear projection for domestic data use is one of the aims of this project. By these data, it can supply estimation to consuming power. Optimizing and reducing power usage are the objectives of providing such data.
