In this proposal, we describe a Smart Home Energy Management System (SHEMS) for effective home power management. This system, after gathering information about the various home appliances, monitors and controls their performance for the most efficient power consumption scenario. To aid this function, we also describe a PLC Power Controlled Outlet Module (PPCOM). A home server connected to the PPCOM network is proposed as part of a Star topology. The server is provided with required parameters of all devices on the home grid by microprocessors of each device, enabling it to reach decisions about their performance. Elementary tests & surveys indicate that our design can be implemented practically and does not require any radical changes in the existing infrastructure.
