This work is devoted to the study of Smart Home systems based on the development of an energy optimization system for a smart home and based on various wireless communication protocols. The paper considers the construction of a home monitoring and control system based on the latest Bluetooth Low-Energy protocol using modern technologies. A device for monitoring and controlling electrical appliances, which is an element of this system, is proposed. The proposed architecture has advantages over other existing systems: reliability, performance, ease of deployment, and management. The system is flexible due to the possibility of selecting operating modes (automatic or manual) and changing various settings that affect the operation of the optimization algorithm.

The paper presents examples of the system operation in different modes and at different values of the algorithm settings, consisting of a server deployed on a personal computer and two developed monitoring and control device prototypes.
