This paper presented an occupancy-based smart plug system for appliance energy saving in smart home. We measured current consumption of appliances in real time using smart plugs, and check the occupation of residents using occupancy sensors installed on the door and room. The proposed system saves electric energy to switch off the supply power of unnecessary usages in the unoccupied spaces. Experiments conducted have shown that current usage of appliances can be measured by using smart plugs and presence can be checked by using occupancy sensors.
