Abstract— A Home Energy Management (HEM) system plays a crucial role in realizing residential Demand Response (DR) programs in the smart grid environment. It provides a homeowner the ability to automatically perform smart load controls based on utility signals, customer’s preference and load priority. This paper presents the hardware demonstration of the proposed HEM system for  managing end-use appliances. The HEM’s communication time delay to perform load control is analyzed, along with its residual energy consumption.

Keywords— Demand response (DR), home energy management (HEM), smart grid, home automation
