Outline your approach to the project? What ideas did you generate and how did you refine or reject them? What did you research and explore? what were the design choices? What challenges were encountered and how did you resolve them?

For this project, I spoke to my flatmate to discuss features in the product and what would be helpful to maintain a smoke-free environment at home without being intrusive.

Apart from that, the following were used as resources for Smoke Sense:

  1. Bluk DK IoT Smoke Detector
  2. DIY WiFi Gas Detector
  3. Sparkfun MQ-7 CO Sensor Guides

The key design choices involved using a notification system that allowed the smoker to take action to reduce smoke in the house while being forgiving if he or she does not take action the very first time.
