Week 11 Home Work

This week we had to do lesson 4-6. Starting to connect our Arduino Wi-fi was very exciting and fun for me especially when I was playing with IFTTT. IFTTT made is very easy to make the function of the Arduino applicable to real life situations, such as telling me the weather to sending me an email.  At first I struggled with setting up the Wi-fi connections from Adafruit IO. There is just bits and parts, that if one is missing than the whole connection will not work.

  1. Hi Anna, for your sleep-sensing pillow, here’s the feedback I have for this BOM:

    You won’t need the high resistor if you’re using the standalone captouch sensor. I recommend this path (yes to https://www.adafruit.com/product/1374) because the code it much easier to write than doing the captouch processing on the microcontroller. In addition to aluminum foil, you may be interested in experimenting with conductive fabric (https://www.adafruit.com/?q=conductive%20fabric).

    Could you add your buzzer to your circuit diagram please? I can’t remember if you might already have a similar buzzer in your kit, it would look similarly small black and cylindrical. I may have omitted it this year, they make the most annoying sound (which is perfect for your project).
