NEW GUIDE: Funhouse Door Alert with Email Notification @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

New guide alert! Funhouse Door Alert with Email Notification guide will show you how to build a WiFi home automation system that sends a message when your door is ajar!

By sensing the door with a magnetic contact switch, the Funhouse running CircuitPython sends REST messages to Adafruit IO, which displays a door feed dashboard and integrates email alerts.

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. I would like to offer a future learn project for the Funhouse and keyboard feather wing.

    Using micropython it would be could to use the these two devices to make a keyboard mapper for zoom and/or teams. two buttons on the feather wing would control the video on/off and mute on/off for teams. The funhouse could switch the keyboard mappings for different mappings between zoom / teams / cisco webex. I don’t recall if the Funhouse can emulate a keyboard and if not maybe the new pi 2040 featherwing could assist.

    Keep up the good work and make more Funhouse boards so I can buy some.
