    AUTOMATIC ELECTRICITY METER READING WITH LOAD CONTROL USING GSM
    Arth Patel, Dax Patel, Nirali Patel, Hardik Modi*

    The electricity department has to send employees to take electric meter reading every month, which is time consuming and expensive job. This system provides a favorable and efficacious method to solve this problem. The electricity department can take the readings of electricity meter using GSM. The principal objective of this paper was, to build a GSM based electricity meter reading system and also the loads can be controlled over GSM using this paper. The PIC microcontroller takes reading from electricity meter and then displays the reading on the LCD. Reading of the electricity meter was also sent to control room by SMS through GSM modem. The desired number can be auto saved on the microcontroller by a missed call. This GSM modem also receives the instruction from any cellular phone to control electrical load. It uses a conventional electricity meter which sends output pulses to microcontroller to do counting. On receiving command microcontroller can even switch ON/OFF the load.
