Toilet

C/C++
version 1.0
// Reed-Switch with Particle Photon - works with v0.7.0-rc.3 without Libaries
// Ingo Lohs, v1.0 v. 19.11.2017
// Projekt, um über einen Signalton auf einen offenen Toiletten-Deckel hinzuweisen
// es dient eher einer erzieherischen Massnahme die Toilette nicht über die Massen zu blockieren
// Project to indicate a beep on an open toilet lid
// it is more of an educational measure not to block the toilet from the masses

// https://community.particle.io/t/cross-check-required/37466/6

// ToDo:
// * how often was the toilet used? Any ideas for a counter?
// * how long was the lid actually open (measurement of time to see how the behavior changes over time)?
