Smart Metering IoT Solution Based on NodeMCU for More Accurate Energy Consumption Analysis

pdf PDF


This article describes design and implementation of a smart metering system based on cheap NodeMCU board which was connected to the cloud via smart IoT Gateway. The designed system consists of smart meter device that can wirelessly transmit data to IoT cloud platform, where they are processed to Power BI tool for real-time monitoring and further energy consumption analysis. The conclusion summarizes advantages and disadvantages of the designed IoT solution.
