Introduction
Bluetooth Multimeter is an intelligent peripheral of android phones, specially designed for engineers. Not only can it easily collect data such
as voltage, current and resistance etc., this multimeter can also communicate with phones via bluetooth. Thus, the data gathered will be
displayed on your phones. Continuous optimization of hardware and software guarantees this multimeters measurement accuracy.
Both its hardware and software are open source! Besides, we also provide API as well as detailed instructions, making this Bluetooth
Multimeter an open platformfor developers to use and re-develop more conveniently. It can gather data of various sensors, such as heartbeat,
and then transmit it to smartphones for data-monitoring. The perfect combination of hardware and software provides infinite possibility for
your application and exploitation.
This Bluetooth Multimeter features a built-in lithiumbattery and rechargeable circuit. Strict control of power consumption in the software
ensures the easy application of this product. Acrylic shell makes it easy to assemble on the one hand, and makes the product stable and
reliable on the other hand.

The Bluethooth Multimeter and Android device work sketch map as show below:
Demonstration
This Bluetooth Multimeter is a portable multimeter, a device that gathers the voltage, resistance and current. And it can sent these data to
other devices via Bluetooth, so that we could observe the data through other devices. Next we will demonstrate you how to use it.
Pair phone and Bluetooth Multimeter
1) Download the application program package:SmartMeter (http://seeedstudio.com
/wiki/File:SmartMeterWithUI_Installation_package.zip) and install it.
2) Then click the application icons of the SmartMeter to run, at the moment it will appear a Bluetooth permission request when you
have not open phone bluetooth. Click "YES" to open bluetooth .
3) After entering to UI interface, turn on the red application switch, it will display 0.0 on the screen.
4) Click Bluetooth icon to select device.

5) Please select BT MULTIMETER device to pair with your phone. While BT MULTIMETER device do not exit, you need to click
"Scan for device" to search it.
Note: While there are neither BT MULTIMETER device to select nor the Scan for device option to search, you can firstly use phone to
paire with Bluetooth Multimeter and run the app after paired.
6) Input "0000"(default for bluetooth multimeter) or "1234" for bluetooth pair. and you'd better observe the pairing indicator, helps you
to judge whether the pairing is successful.
7) Congratulations on your completing the paired.

Measure
Like other Multimeters, the bluetooth multimeter have several notes in using, for example: donot measure resistance when you supply power
for it. So we suggest strongly you to read the notes of multimters for fear that the device cannot use normally.
Measure Resistance
Now lets measure resistance. When Android App and Multimeter are connected, choose resistance (i.e. move the cursor to ), Audio line
connecte to the connector(marked R) of Bluetooth Multimeter.
Measure Voltage
Its very simple to measure the voltage. Just move the cursor of the Android App to V, and move the Audio line to VOL connector, then you
can see the value of voltage.

The method of measuring current is as same as other multimeter. Need to remind you that select correct current range.
Note: It is necessary to check whether audio line is connected to corresponding connector and the cursor is in correct place in order to own
precise data.
Reference
The UI Interface
We have three Android App UI for Bluetooth Multimeter.
