Hello, we used an external ADC that didn't support more than 3,3V at its inputs. The current sensor output can go up to 5V so we needed to use a voltage divider to insure that the ADC wouldn't get damaged. The MOSFETs are being used as a switch to control the light intensity and colour of the RGB LEDs.
Hello, we used a software called Fritzing.
Hello, yes it can be done. In this project we had a relay to turn the plug on/off and it could be controled remotely using the web interface or using a physical button. The button "Turn plug on/off" that shows on the interface is updated with the actual state of the relay everytime the button is pressed.You could implement something similar, whenever your lamps consume energy your arduino could send a signal to the web interface to show if the lamp is on or off.
Thank you :)
Hello, it should work if you use a WebSockets library for Arduíno and adapt the code. You would also need a wifi module or something like arduino Yun which already comes with wifi. If you don't desire a web interface then all you need is to adapt the code that calculates current and power and the part of the code that makes the LED's change its colour.
