In recent years, power-saving strategies have become very active. For furtherdevelopments in order to push ahead with power saving, visualization of powerconsumption is needed. Thus, we propose a real-time home-based unit that measures,power consumption and provides a visualization of the data for energyconsumers, which is more suitable than existing commercial products. Thissystem shows the measured results in real-time on PC. Power consumption ismeasured by a non-contact current sensor and a commercial step-down power. Then,the measured result is indicated after sending it to PC by wirelesscommunication.
