Abstract

Electricity Smart Meter provides a great service for managing an electricity bills system. One of the main issues in Saudi's electricity company is extensive distance and difficult terrains. This study aims to reduce the wasted time in reading of electricity consumption as manually, and to manage the service provided by using wireless networks topology. The proposed smart meter system contains a description and explanation for its design, type of wireless connectivity, and a service provider center. This study has been shown that smart meter can be implemented with the least possible hardware required consisting of a Sim-card, which is capable of sending signals to an access point, and routing the information to the centralized system.
