Abstract— The design and development of a smart monitoring and controlling system for household electrical appliances in real time has been implemented. The novelty of this system is the implementation of the controlling mechanism of appliances in different ways. The developed system is a low-cost and flexible in operation and thus can save electricity expense of the consumers. The precision rectifier rectifies the received A.C waveform to pure D.C waveform within a range of (0-5V) D.C.   The values are used for computation by the controller and as well as transmitted by the controller to the PC through the Zigbee medium. The relay is activated and deactivated by the driver as per the output of the Input Output pins. The PC uses Visual Basic GUI interface to handle more WSN nodes. The prototype has been extensively tested in real-life situations and experimental results are very encouraging. Thus the whole function of the WSN is monitored and controlled using embedded and wireless systems.

Keywords— Power Management, WSN, Zigbee, Visual basic GUI
