The smart toilet light project brings IoT to your bathroom. IoT, or Internet of Toilets, is the popular industry buzzword to describe a connected social network of intelligent toilets. With the smart toilet light you can create a light that illuminates your toilet bowl based on data from the internet. For example your toilet can shine red if it’s going to rain, or glow yellow if it’s sunny and clear outside. Not only is the smart toilet light a useful aid to find the toilet in the dark, but it’s a real source of information to help you plan for your day!
This project is built with a Feather Huzzah ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller and a 8mm NeoPixel LED. You can 3D print a case and a LED clip to hold the hardware near the toilet bowl. By connecting toAdafruit IO the ESP8266 can listen for color and animation commands that are sent from other services like If This Then That (IFTTT), Zapier, and more. You’ll have your toilet pulsing and flashing different colors from the internet in almost no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
