Updated IOT Dog Sensor: Adafruit IO

After using the IOT dog sensor for a while, I went ahead and simplified it a ton. It only uses a single Feather Huzzah board now, and uses Adafruit IO + IFTTT to call my phone instead of requiring a custom Laravel website and a receiver with a speaker. Since it’s so much simpler, I’ve also created a little tutorial on how to make your own. Read on to learn how!


Arduino Powered Pumpkin

I picked out this fun gray pumpkin at the pumpkin patch. But what to do with it? Why not turn it into a green glowing alien, with a little Arduino power.

IOT Dog sensor

An IOT project using a few Adafruit micro-controllers to alert us when the dog needs to go outside. She rings the bell, and we get an audio playback in our room letting us know she needs to go out.

Animatronic Arduino Dr. Seuss Door

I wanted to make sure my wife’s classroom had the coolest door for their Dr. Seuss door decorating contest. What’s that mean? A little paper, a little foam, and a lot of Arduino.

Arduino Project – Disney Wait

I love doing Arduino projects, and Disneyland. Why not combine the two. In this project I create a K’nex Ferris wheel that visualizes the wait times for attractions at Disneyland.

New Toy – Arduino

So because I don’t have enough going on right now, I thought, “What the hell, why not add in another hobby?” In comes the Arduino.
