Abstract: The need and the advantages of prepaid system can be seen all the way around and prepaid system has always proved its faithful working. The growing electricity theft has put a challenge towards power quality and customer comfort. Though, the frequency of contingencies clearance has much improved due to advancement in embedded and semiconductor systems, yet we have a long way to go because their lies a huge gap between the present technology and present electrical systems. A refined and much advanced concept of prepaid electricity distribution system has been discussed. Electrical System joining hands with IoT based home automation is area of interest in this project. A balanced result has to be produced by decision taken by micro-controller without taxing the customer satisfaction. Also, an algorithmic programmed home automation system has been proposed which will enable customer to save electricity bills. This system helps the users by alerting them about the billing status and unit consumption with the help of an indicator and also making necessary changes in load automatically.
