Introduction: This paper presents a monitoring andcontrol system prototype using the internet protocol (IP)for a residential lighting layout. The prototype aims todevelop energy efficiency processes by reducing electricenergy consumption without decreasing user comfortand quality of life. Methods: The system is based on aweb application to remotely turn the power on and off,which enables the monitoring of its consumption whilebeing grounded in a prospective analysis. The prototypehas hardware and software components. Results: Theprototype has hardware is implemented with the Arduino® platform, which enables the assignment of anIP address using an Ethernet Shield card. This addressprovides bidirectional communication possibilities. Thedevice is connected by a data acquisition system, whichis designed and constructed to measure energy consumptionfrom voltage and current measurements using anADE7763® integrated circuit and an ACS714® currentsensor. In this physical structure, a web application hasbeen developed to monitor consumption and develop acontrol process with communication protocols throughpower line communication (PLC). Conclusions: The maincontributions of this investigation are grounded in the useof economics and small devices that will enable low-costenergy-efficient project development in both domesticand industrial electric installations.
