Every day I have to give 5 bottles to my baby. Which is approximatively every 4 hours. Mum, geek and super busy, sometimes I do not remember the hour of the last bottle! So I decided to create a bottle dispenser, which counts the bottles I take and notes on an Google sheet the date and the hour.
Duration: 3 hours
How To Make It
: Set up your cloudBit
Set up your cloudBit if you haven’t done so already.
: Build the circuit
Build the circuit: USB power + Roller Switch on "Open" mode + W2 Branch where one side goes to Number and the other side goes to Cloudbit + Wire which goes on top of Number.
When you setup the roller switch on "open" mode, the connection will be done each the little "arm" will be released. After 5 times, you can reset the Number bit by pressing the button on your contral panel.
: Add an IFTTT's recipe
Set up the Google sheet with an IFTTT’s recipe. The recipe should read: IF my littleBits cloudBit is triggered [I take a bottle], THEN add a row to spreadsheet in my Google Drive
