It is quite difficult to find out all the time to sneak at the jars in our kitchen to find out its level. So this idea is to use a small limit switch with XDK GPIO and connect it to internet and see it on our mobile. That’s it.
We can get to know a notification once the limit switch is release and now it’s time to buy the content from super market.
We can set it to a different level and see its usage status. Accordingly we can monitor as well get stats of the mostly used ingredients in our house or hotel or etc...
this sounds like a great idea.
I would imagine that you could, for example, also track at what times the ingredients are used the most.
A restaurant could then prepare more thoroughly for high ingredient usage.
Keep us informed about your activities!
Kind regards, Franjo
As on today i have experiment this and works well. Only backdrop i have seen is battery.
So I replaced my concept with MQTT on BLE and using my Raspberry pi as server.
This works fine. But still trying to refine much in to this.
Slowly I will integrated accelerometer to find how frequent the Jar is been used. Thanks for the idea
