The Energy Management and Advanced Control Systems (EMACS) is a system that will monitor power usage for a specific wall outlet, but also allow the user to be able to control the outlet wirelessly. The benefit gives the user real time power usage as well as the convenience to know for example, if they leave a light on at their home, they will be able to turn it off without needing to be there. Both the lower and upper sockets will be controlled independently for each wall outlet as well as independently monitored. The end result will feature a wall outlet that will have a LED display letting the user know if the outlet is on or off, an override switch on the outlet itself for turning on and off the outlet if the user wishes to not use a wireless device to do so, and a wireless monitoring system the can be used on a tablet or smart phone device.
