Have you ever forgotten to take your daily pill? What if you had something that reminded you to make sure you have taken your pill every morning. That is where our device comes in. Every time you open your weekly pill holder, a text message is sent to your phone thanking you for taking your pill. This can be used by anyone that needs to be reminded of this important, but overlooked part of the day.
Using a PIR motion sensor attached in the hub of the pill holder. When this sensor is tripped, the particle attached to the sensor publishes the event called MotionDetected. The second particle subscribes to this event leading to a green light flashing on and off. Utilizing IFTTT, two applets were created to read these published events to send a text message, and add a new row to the excel sheet.
