With advancement of technology things are becoming simpler and easier for us. Automatic systems are being preferred over manual system. The aim of this project is to design and construct a GSM based Smart Energy Meter. The meter designed can be monitored and recharged remotely via SMS. Hardware/Software Methodology was implemented in this work. Hardware implementation consists of three Key parts: The Metering unit, the micro controller and the GSM module. The Metering unit measures the energy consumption of the load and sends the data to the micro controller. The micro controller (the brain of the system) controls the operations of the meter and sends electrical parameters to both the LCD and GSM module. The GSM module establishes a communication link from the meter to the user via SMS. The Software part is responsible for the token generation and meter’s querying codes which were written in C language in a Visual Studio Environment. The result obtained from this work is a GSM based Smart Energy meter that can be monitored and recharged remotely via the use of a SMS
