This paper presents monitoring and theft detection in utility line with the help of an IoT module. Since electrical theft is illegal and should be strictly prohibited, so in order to eliminate power theft, the location of power theft is to be known so that appropriate action will be taken on the legal offenders. The circuit consists of ARM microcontroller, LCD, IoT module and Current transformers. So when the theft taken place the preferred module will show a change in their value and this difference will help us to locate the theft.
