This paper presents a prototype of an Energy Management and Monitoring System (EMMS) for the first house in Newfoundland built under PHIUS+2015 standards. The proposed Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system is based on the Internet of things (IOT) and is designed to minimize electricity usage through self-consumption. It comprises of PZEM004T current and voltage sensor with ESP32 as the first layer controller. The controller also has control relays and a web-based monitoring and controlling platform using Ubidots development platform. The overall system can be controlled and monitored remotely with advanced web-based systems powered by Ubidots and set up triggers for excess usage of electricity by the boiler system. The user can then manually load the wood into the boiler to reduce electricity consumption. Overall, this system is scalable and can be implemented to transform the house into a smart home, which will eventually generate cost savings and promote sustainable living.
