With the increasing number of electrical equipment in the home, the safety of household appliances, electricity statistics and remote transmission of information are becoming more and more important. In order to solve this problem, this paper uses STM32F103C8T6 single chip microcomputer as the main control chip to design an intelligent socket system which can measure the power consumption, and display the power consumption information locally, and control the wireless communication with the mobile phone through GSM. The intelligent socket system adopts low power supply, and the collection of power consumption is completed by current transformer ZMCT103C. The communication mode of the system is GSM communication, and the user can plug in the intelligent plug through the mobile phone APP at any place. The system sends text messages to control on-off and timing, so as to achieve the need to save electricity. In this paper, the system software is designed, and the mainstream diagram of the system and the flow chart of the main control modules are given. Finally, the measurement and actual power consumption data of the system are given, and the physical diagram of the system is given. After various tests, the system has the advantages of high reliability and strong measurement and control function, and can be widely used in smart home control system.
