Find out when the laundry basket is full without walking over to it with this Smart Laundry Basket instructables
When you just have one laundry basket to take care of, life is easy. It’s always sitting in your closet, you see it every day, and you know when it is full. The problem comes when you have multiple kids. Now you have laundry baskets spread throughout the house. Going around to each room every other day and checking how full they are is annoying and a waste of your time. Today, we’re going to solve that problem.
We’ll use the LinkIt One hooked up to an online cloud program (MediaTek Cloud Sandbox) that will allow us to tell if our kid’s laundry basket is full from the cloud!
