The STEVAL-BLUEPLUG1 evaluation board for home-automation and IoT (internet of things) applications is designed to help you develop your own home or building automation subsystems for energy management, in a small form factor solution for easy integration into home and building electrical systems.
The board is compliant with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) specification 4.2 to allow secure communication of metering data from specific electrical loads to a smart phone with BLE support.
You can use an Android application for your smart phone to display energy measurement parameters and send dimming and scheduling commands to the Smart Plug board.
This board embeds an STPM32 metering chip for high accuracy measurement of power and energy in power line systems using shunt current sensors, and a non-isolated buck converter supply based on the VIPER06Xs. A three-terminal TRIAC controls the current through AC switching.
You can also interface the board with NFC enabled EEPROM via a dedicated connector.
