Anti-Procrastination Cell Phone Jar #IoT @adafruitio @adafruit
Are you endlessly scrolling on your phone? The Anti-Procrastinator is a project that sends a text message alert to someone you trust if you try to grab your addicting cell phone out of a jar.
This circuit uses a PIR motion sensor to detect if your phone is in the jar. If your phone leaves the jar, an ESP8266 will send a value to an Adafruit IO feed that the phone is missing from the jar. IFTTT is used to monitor the Adafruit IO feed and sends a SMS to someone you are accountable to if a new value is posted to the jar’s Adafruit IO feed.
