This paper provides the details on the design and implementation of a Wi-Fi smart plug capable of remotely switching a load on or off. The system is designed to monitor energy consumption and collects data from the plug. The data is sent to a server that communicates the data in real-time to a website which can be accessible from a user's smart phone. Using this information the user can send time-based requests to remotely switch the load on or off.
