Your office needs a bell.
This project allows ringing a bell with varying sequences from a Raspberry Pi using a solenoid. A Hubot plugin is provided so that you can ring the bell from inside Slack. The Hubot plugin drops a message in Amazon SQS so that your Raspberry Pi can live behind a NAT without any networking changes.
