Monitoring systems are able to get information from the environment where it is deployed for further analysis. Based on this analysis, control systems can be developed. These systems make use of a network of sensors to obtain such information.
A smart meter is usually an electronic device that records consumption of electric energy periodically and communicates that information to a monitoring system. Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and a possible control system.
