In today's environment without internet living and working is very difficult in daily life. The Internet of things is the major technology by which we can produce various useful applications. The paper describes the digitization of load energy usage and power theft updated over the internet using hardware and software. The designed system reduces the involvement of human interference in electricity maintenance. It uses the wireless technology for automatic meter reading system. The user can

The webpage utilizes the ThingSpeak to analyze the energy usage and theft update and visualization and energy usage statistics. Raspberry Pi was chosen due to built in Wi-Fi chip. The Wi-Fi unit performs the IOT operation by sending the load data to the webpage. The power theft detection is monitored by IR sensor and is fed to the Raspberry Pi which indicates it to the webpage. So the consumer can do power management and theft detection.
