Build an alarm system that detects when someone enters a secure area. The system requests an access code from the person via a web browser, and stores the access data on cloud-based storage. If the wrong code is entered, an alarm sounds.
Air Quality Sensor
Create an air quality sensor that continuously monitors the environment for pollutants and issues a warning sound when conditions become unhealthy. Contaminant data is stored on the cloud.
Build an alarm clock that can be set remotely via a mobile phone. The alarm clock also displays live weather data and tracks how long the user takes to wake up. Data is saved to the cloud.
Close Call Reporter
Build an app for fleet management that tracks close calls (near accidents) by combining an infrared (IR) distance sensor and GPS. Logs of close calls are kept in the cloud.
Color Match Game
Build a game where players match colors on an LCD screen with colors on the browser of a remote device. Progressive levels add more colors and complexity.
Create a smart doorbell that buzzes and displays a message when the Grove* Touch Sensor is pressed. You can also choose to store data using the example's datastore running in your own Microsoft Azure* account.
Create an device that scans the three-axis digital accelerometer for indications of earthquake movement. Using the United States Geological Survey* API, it attempts to verify that an earthquake actually occurred.
Equipment Activity Monitor
Track equipment usage with a project that monitors sound and vibration sensors. It provides visual notification whenever the equipment is in use and logs data in the cloud.
Create a device that measures temperature and then sounds an alarm when the temperature reaches an unsafe level. Additional alerts are sent to the LCD display and optionally via text message. Event data can also be stored in the cloud.
