One feature of Smart Homes includes recording the consumption of electricity of appliances in the household. The recordings are conducted using Smart Meters. To demonstrate the usefulness of Smart Meters for the final customers, this paper identifies several benefits by presenting the research area non-intrusive appliance load monitoring (NALM). The purpose is to discuss the energy consumption of different appliances in detail in order to determine a means of reducing this consumption. The analysis focuses on the drawbacks of the appliances examined. Based on the results of the analysis, the approach to gathering data is described. With this approach we want to greatly simplify the NALM process. Finally the initial results obtained using this approach are discussed.
