A range of technology for monitoring electricity consumption at residential homes is gradually becoming available to users. Almost all of these systems, however, only aim to assist users with reducing their total power consumption, without being concerned too much about how those savings are actually made. Our research, aims to provide a basis for design of systems that give users control over management of power usage, so that savings in energy consumption can be made more intelligently. This paper describes the requirements of such a system, and proposes an architecture for these types of ubiquitous systems for residential homes.
