AbstractThis paper describes a device that integrates remote monitoring and control electronics into a commercial off the shelf 120 VAC power distribution strip and surge protector. An integrated microcontroller collects data on power usage from each of four AC outlets, along with two USB ports, and relays this information to a remote location. Using a conventional web browser to generate a graphical user interface, an untrained user can easily visualize their current and past energy usage patterns, and send commands to control individual outlets.
