I made a laundry notification system that emails us when the washing machine has stopped.
The project consists of an esp-12e, a single LDR monitoring a LED on the washing machine, all programmed with Arduino IDE to send an email when the machine stops using an active endpoint on thinger.io
I tweeted a photo of my project and was asked to share it here on the forum. I’ve created a project page on Hackaday to monitor the project as it’s still in prototype stage. I want to learn how to design a simple PCB and make a final version next.
Here’s the page, and it will be updated as the project moves along: https://hackaday.io/project/10614-laundresp
I’m still a very big beginner in this world and I’m sure some of the things I’m doing could be done better. I’ll post up the .ino file onto my hackaday page in a little bit.
