The consumption of energy in residential buildings is increasing day by day due to the use of various advanced technologies and therefore represents a potential source of energy savings. The use of smart energy management system can assist in reducing the energy usage in an efficient way.This paper gives a review of a smart energy system in the development of an energy efficient management system for residential building using ARM7 and ZigBee. A Home section or Device unit is developed using four different devices (or household appliances) with an auxiliary load (device which is occasionally used) each connected to the ARM7 microcontroller unit respectively. The priority modes are given to the four devices as specified by the user. The auxiliary load is provided with reference wattage such that if the power value of auxiliary load goes beyond this reference wattage then the four devices will be switched according to the priorities given to them in the specified modes. The controlling action and selection of modes can be done at the monitoring unit through ZigBee communication. Thus, a smart system can be developed for energy efficiency in a building.
