The problem of poor payment of electricity bills has been thing of concern for research for some years now. In the context of energy meters the concept of meter security is of great concert due to tempering of the energy meters presented a GSM-Based Smart Energy Meter with Arduino Uno that could enable users to monitor their current power consumptions (bill) anytime from anywhere by using their mobile phone via Short Message Services (SMS). Enhanced Security monitoring system that detects energy meter tampering anytime from anywhere by using the Global Positioning System (GPS) was design. It would be a huge benefit for the utility companies if energy meter tampering is detected on real-time basis. ATMEG328p main controller, was the interface between energy meter and Global Positioning System (GPS) module sound an alarm.
Keywords: Energy Meter, Global Position System (GPS), ATMEGA328p, and Real Time.
