The daily lives are more integrated into networks of wireless sensors and smart surroundings for its health, safety and comfort applications. From smart homes to smart office environments, these wireless sensor networks are used to increase the individuals comfort. Internet of things relies on networks to create an omnipotent sensor based network and device control measures based on IP addressing. Cloud computing when integrated with the internet of things can provide added ultra-technical value. Aggregating various resources and tailoring it into things like semantics paves way for the evolution of cloud of things (COD). Arduino, the open source programmable microcontroller device that can sense and interact with the environment with wired and wireless connectivity to the internet plays a major role in this study. This intelligent system communicates directly with the appliances which are IP assigned to the cloud database such that the user accounts have the accurate control over the registered appliances and totally reduces human intervention. In this proposed study, researchers put forward, the methods for the implementation of a low cost internet of things on cloud using Arduino. Also, this study proposes a Smart Energy Management System (SEMs), that will make use of internet of things with >1 type of wireless communication technique based on the requirement to collect energy information from the users and communicate it to the cloud server and saves energy efficiently.
