This research presented a development of a smart power meter with real-time breaker capacity monitoring and load control system on mobile phones for home energy management with IoT technology by applying it to use with the blynk application. The load control system was designed for single-phase loads. The monitoring system was designed to monitor the electrical voltage, electrical current, electrical power, and the percentage load of the breaker while taking the breaker's amp trip value into account. If the percentage load of the breaker increased to the set value, the system will send an alarm message to the user via a line application for proper power management in the home. Moreover, the data can also be used to calculate the power and percentage load of the breaker for future energy management.
