Energy management in home is gaining more attention as people try to use sustainable energy sources. This attempt to improve the use of infrastructure for energy production and distribution is expected to include smart grid systems. The incorporation of Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled smart devices into an ecosystem designed for maximum energy efficiency has been proposed for Smart Home Energy Management Systems (SHEMS). Smart homes are expensive, but smart plugs can change normal home devices relatively smart. This paper proposes a prototype design for a SHEMS it monitors and controls the energy consumption of smart devices to reduce the electricity bill and also detect energy theft.
