Abstract—The demand of electrical energy is increasing drastically and a significant amount of electrical energy is consumed in buildings particularly in small and medium sized building due to increased comfort level and use of modern electrical appliances. In this paper, a laboratory prototype is developed to enable the integration of commonly used electrical appliances such as lighting load controllers and plug load controllers in the Indian context, as well as any IoT devices that have open application programming interface. The overall objective of this research is to demonstrate energy savings potential achievable, while maintaining satisfactory occupant comfort and healthy working environment through intelligent algorithms. Using the developed prototype more than 52% energy is saved through load scheduling approach. Moreover, the cost associated with the development of the proposed solution is very less as compared to the existing solutions. It is a game changer in saving energy, improve occupant comfort and plays a transformational role in small/medium sized buildings.
