This is a simple power meter to analyze (with LabVIEW) the current consuming in a house using the led indicator of a house energy meter. Reading the red led of a home energy counters the system detects the correct consumption in a house. It is a noninvasive method, not cut wire, no current disconnects, so a very interesting method…

The system consists of two parts: the Arduino board that detects the led pulses and sends the data via the XBee module, and a PC that receive the data through a USB/Xbee module and processes the data with LabVIEW so you can prepare and study the consumption in a very instant. Arduino sends two data to the PC: 1 – Real time datas 2 – Average consumption measured in a time of 5 minutes.
