Intention

I’m sharing the bathroom with my roommate, and sometimes it is hard to know if someone is in the bathroom. So I decided to design a product to send out a notification when the other person is in the bathroom.

Then I set up a Pushover account and an IFTTT account in order to send out trigger and get a notification.





When I turn the led light will light up when the motion sensor detects anything moving, and it will send a notification to the IFTTT and my phone to let me know that someone is in the bathroom.
