IoT Christmas Rug

  • More one project, but this with ESP8266 NodeMCU.
    It's Christmas, so how about a "IoT Christmas Rug", which warns via Facebook Messenger that someone is at the door and still plays Jingle Bells, all this with Espruino on our ESP8266.

    Check it out the article about it:­4/iot-christmas-themed-rug/

    And I made a vídeo showing the use, audio are in portuguese but I wrote english subtitles :

    Merry Christmas everybody!

  • I love the idea!! Thanks for sharing ;-)

  • Hi Jean,

    thanks! This made success at the Christmas party here at home.
    I update the video with english subtitles too!

  • That's brilliant! Literally and figuratively :-)
    Not sure if this will work, but I was thinking a chicken wire mesh under the rug would act as a capacitive sensor, could have the advantage of being sealed against weather, etc.
    Since the Puck has a dedicated cap sensor pin, this might be a good experiment - I'll give it a try in the new year, on vacation right now.
