In this paper we present a modular system for remote monitoring and control of energy consumption. In particular, we demonstrate the application of the proposed system for electric energy monitoring and control in domestic or medium size office installations. This whole system is integrated in a single platform and consists of different modules: one or several smart plugs including a wireless communication interface for connection to a WiFi network, and a centralized application server. The developed system allows a real time monitoring of the energy consumption, and the control and scheduling of remote switches, providing the tools for an optimal energy saving. This monitoring and control leads to a significant cost reduction and to a sustainable management of energy resources beneficial for the environment. The consumption results are also presented for a typical scenario with five power outlets.
