Today, the world is dealing with a fundamental problem in the energy device community: energy intensity. Power theft is a scam, because these utilities are wasting hundreds of thousands of rupees. The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly replacing facts by connecting touchscreen devices to networks. Its purpose is to implement a prototype of a variant that detects current theft without human intervention. The reason for this structure is to reduce the occurrence of electrical strength and injury due to energy intensity. It mainly consists of a Photonic Particle board, a complete hardware package based on the Full Embedded era, and Wi-Fi conversation technology for detecting electrical theft and distribution line failure. In the world of today, sophisticated monitoring has become a necessity, though the energy-supply systems are still regulated using traditional means. The traditional approach is expensive and time-consuming as well as requiring labor for customer surveillance and data analysis that can also cause human losses. To avoid this risk many industries and management sectors proclaiming the theft of the power can be need fully monitored by using any king of system. The proposed module helps to lower the energy theft using a Wi-Fi based smart circuit breaker. IoT plays a major role in the upcoming years here we can positively move forward for this kind of technology.As seen on the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen, the controller embedded system continuously monitors the detection of duplication & stealing.
