Avocado 7

Very cool 3D printing project from Ted Kinsman posted this week in the Community!

This is a little project that has been sitting around for a while – thought I would share a little design that helps root avocados.

Thanks to Dave for sending in his awesome IoT Garage Door Monitor/Opener with Finger Print Scanner project! Read more about the build here.

I’ve got a lot of stuff in my garage, and having 3 kids (one of them being me!) with forgetful minds,garageMonDescriptions the garage door is sometimes left open over night. I don’t really like that sinking feeling after waking up the next day to find the door was left open. Between loosing valuables and critters that make a mess of garbage, I finally decided it’s time to take a stance! I have an IP Cam mounted inside the garage and, for the past few years, have used it as a means to monitor valuables. I wanted to take it to the next step by getting notifications of door status both inside my house (blinking LED in the hallway I could check before bed time) and on my various smart devices (iOs/Android). I also wanted to be able to remotely open/close the doors as well as do away with the keycode entry system I have, and instead use a fingerprint scanner to open/close the doors. (I’m good at scope creep). During my daytime job I spend much of my time managing it, and, in my hobbies, loosing control of it! It’s my style, what can I say.(read more)
