© 2015 IEEE. Considering the inability of the existing energy resources to satisfy the current needs, the right and efficient use of the energy has become compulsory. To make energy sustainability permanent, management and planning activities should be carried out by arranging the working hours and decreasing the energy wasting. For all these, power metering, managing and controlling systems or plugs has been proposed in recent efforts. Starting from this point, a new DASH7-based Smart Plug (D7SP) is designed and implemented to achieve a better structure compared to ZigBee equipped models and reduce the drawbacks of current applications. DASH7 technology reaches nearly 6 times farther distances in comparison with 2.4 GHz based protocols and provides multi-year battery life as a result of using limited energy during transmission. Performing in the 433 MHz band prevents the possible interference from overcrowded 2.4 GHz and the other frequencies which helps to gather a more reliable working environment. To shorten the single connection delays and human oriented failures, the MCU was shifted directly into the plug from the rear-end device. Working hours arrangement and standby power cutting off algorithms are implemented in addition to these energy saving targeted improvements to enhance more efficient systems. With the collaboration of the conducted hardware and software oriented adjustments and DASH7-based improvements, a more reliable, mobile and efficient system has been obtained in this work.
