This project aims to reduce drug theft from elderly homes and drug overdose among the elderly and the final system will include batteries for portability.
There are two particle devices used. A particle Photon and a Particle Argon. Photon is connected with the ultrasonic sensor and it will send a notification via IFTTT and publish (Particle.publish) an event to the particle cloud when there is motion detected within a set range. The Argon will pick it up using Particle.subscribe and turn on the buzzer for a set period. An alert message will also be shown in the LCD display.
The LCD display will show time to keep the elderly ontrack of the medicine intake times.
A website UI is needed to control the system. The website for the prototype has functionality to control the buzzer.
