Developing a Web Application for Smart Home Technology
MetadataShow full item record
With AMS comes great possibilities for increased energy efficiency, but to achieve its full potential, the end users must be provided with the necessary means of monitoring and controlling their consumption. This thesis describes the process of developing a web application prototype meant to serve such a purpose. It explains the various architectural and technological decisions that support the prototype, and it elaborates on how data from the users smart meters can be synthesized with price information to help users see the economic effect of their current consumption pattern. A working prototype has been developed and security- and performance tests have been carried out to mitigate bottlenecks and prevent security breaches. Observations during the pilot project have shown promising trends and it is hoped that this thesis will inspire further innovation in the field of smart energy solutions.
