Zigbee based online smart energy meter
>>These two genius minds Ken Bongort  & Adam McCann gives a new application of zigbee. In this project they are using zigbee to send electricity usage data to online server.
>>In their words “Our project aim was to create a breaker-level power metering device that would sit next to the home’s main distribution panel (or subpanel) and measure the power on up to 4 different circuit lines and output the energy data to Google PowerMeter. The current is measured in a non-contact manner so that any user could safely install the current sensors. The radio devices transmitting the power data comply with the ISM 2.4 GHz frequency band standards and also implement a Zigbee defined encryption for security.”
