When you live in the country and have multiple buildings to deal with, there’s always the threat of rodent attack, now you can leave a trap and not worry about checking it all the time.
This uses a micro switch I got on Amazon, I’ve included the nut plate, I used 2-56 screws, but you could use m2.5 as well just drill the holes to fit.
The battery/ESP holder started out life as https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:535688, (thank you) with some modifications, there is a box on the bottom corner that gets removed to fit trap frame.
I glued the whole thing together with PVC pipe glue.
I made 4 of these all different colors so I can track where they are and which one has tripped.
The code is very simple, just contact IFTTT with your account and trigger your applet and go to deep sleep with no wake ESP.deepSleep(0),
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
