This project introduces a novel approach for identifying energy theft and meter tampering by employing a central observer meter. It aims to detect losses resulting from tampering at the consumer side and tapping energy directly from transmission cables. The prototype comprises two energy meters: one acting as the master energy meter at the power source output, and the other as the consumer energy meter at the cable end. A wireless network, facilitated by RF modules, transmits consumption data to the central observer. Differences in meter readings indicate potential losses due to tampering, cable losses, or direct tapping. The central observer displays data from both meters independently, highlighting any discrepancies as losses. To pinpoint the loss source, each consumer meter requires a transmitter linked to the central observer. This prototype module validates the concept with a single transmitter, demonstrating its potential to detect and address energy losses
