Receive a text notification when someone rings your doorbell! Whether you are in the backyard gardening, over at the neighbors house, or listening to music at full blast, you will always know when someone is at your door with this littleBits project. Install this doorbell outside your home, and never miss a ring.
How it works:
When the button is pressed on the SMS doorbell, it sends a signal through the cloudBit to IFTTT, which is set (via the SMS channel) to send you a text message (i.e. Knock knock!) when someone is at the door. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a service that lets you connect to different web apps through simple conditional statements.
The cloudBit gives you the power to design and build your own internet connected devices, enabling you to design products/projects that are specific and relevant to you. For more project ideas check out our Projects Page.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
