Energy Insight Hub

The Energy Insight Hub is a comprehensive system designed to empower users with a convenient and insightful means of tracking their energy usage. The system employs a microcontroller to capture energy meter data at hourly intervals, and transmit the information to a remote server. The server processes the data using OCR technology, and stores it in a database. A web app interface allows the user to access and visualize their energy consumption conveniently.


Remote Meter Reader

The remote meter reader is a microcontroller that attaches to an energy meter and takes hourly pictures of the readings on the meter. It then transmits the image to a remote server to have the reading extracted from the image.

Image Processing

A python script that runs on the server listens for images to be transmitted. When an image is detected, it processes the image, extracts the reading, and stores it in a database.

Blazor Web App

The Blazor Web app features a live dashboard that displays the readings to the user so that they can see their energy usage live as it's reported by the Meter Reader.
