Arduino IoT Based Energy Meter

Monitor your energy consumption through the Arduino IoT Cloud using a MKR WiFi 1010, a MKR 485 Shield and a Modbus compatible energy meter.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to create an energy meter which allows you to track your energy consumption through the Arduino IoT Cloud. Regardless of whether you want to save energy, automate your home accordingly or simply become more aware of your consumption, measuring your electricity consumption is a good idea.

This tutorial provides a step-by-step explanation of how to set up your new energy meter, using the widely used Modbus protocol to monitor your data. If you are new to the topic, we recommend you read our article on Modbus before getting started. For those who are already familiar with Modbus and have used it before simply follow the steps in the following sections.”
