A first choice for Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro, STMicroelectronics LPS33HW miniature waterproof pressure sensor resists chemicals and salt water. Suitable for use by swimmers, the sensor also stands up to soaps and detergents. Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro is said to be the next generation of sports band, packing features that include GPS, continuous heart rate monitoring, and larger on-board memory for when the user is not connected to a smartphone.

In addition to being highly accurate, the LPS33HW has the unique ability to recover quickly after the stresses of manufacturing. According to STMicro, most sensors can require up to seven days to regain maximum accuracy after coming off the production line, but devices containing the LPS33HW are ready for use in less than half that time. This translates into designers getting their products out the door a lot quicker.

It Ain’t Just For Wearables

In addition to wearables, other equipment including industrial sensors and utility meters can enlist the LPS33HW. The 10-bar pressure sensor can withstand being submerged up to 90 meters, and its RMS pressure noise figure of 0.008 mbar allows apps like an altimeter, depth gauge, or weather monitor to deliver consistent and stable results. The sensor accuracy drifts by less than ±1mbar per year. When soldered to a circuit board during product manufacture, the accuracy is affected by less than ±2mbar, and returns to normal after less than 72 hours – significantly quicker than similar water-resistant pressure sensors.

Home Automation System Circuit Using a Simple Android App Via Bluetooth to Arduino

Electronic Kit School. - Smartphone in this time, not only used to playing the game, selfie, and chatting with social media only. But, now smartphone also can be used to control our home electric appliance like lamp, fan, and others. 

There are many electronic design circuit to build home electric appliance control using Android App in this time. One of the circuit design in this time is use the bluetooth to control home electric appliance or called with home automation system using Android App and Arduino.

The main component to build this system is Arduino Uno, Bluetooth module, relay module, and power supply unit. In this time, beside we will show you the circuit, here we also will show you component part and global description about this circuit.

  1. Arduino Uno Module
  2. Relay Module
  3. Bluetooth Module
  4. Power Supply Module
Description

Circuit like in Figure 1 above show you about the Home Automation System Circuit Using a Simple Android App Via Bluetooth to Arduino. From Electronicsforu site describe that the home automation circuit is built around an Arduino Uno board, Bluetooth module HC-05 and a 3-channel relay board. The number of channels depends on the number of appliances you wish to control. Arduino Uno is powered with a 12V DC adaptor/power source. The relay module and Bluetooth module can be, in turn, powered using a board power supply of Arduino Uno.

Bluetooth module used in this project is HC-05 (Fig. 4), which supports master and slave mode serial communication (9600-115200 bps) SPP and UART interface. Using these features it can communicate with other Bluetooth-enabled devices like mobile phones, tablets and laptops. The module runs on 3.3V to 5V power supply.


A relay allows you to turn on or turn off a circuit using voltage and/or current much higher than what Arduino could handle. Relay provides complete isolation between the low-voltage circuit on Arduino side and the high-voltage side controlling the load. It gets activated using 5V from Arduino, which, in turn, controls electrical appliances like fans, lights and air-conditioners.

Arduino is an open source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
