How To Make It

STEP 1 : Make Circuit

2cc242a4 b070 4e4a b0c8 1d3332f90da2

Put together the power cord, CloudBit, and DC Motor.

STEP 2 : LEGO Structure

Make a Lego structure that is strong. The gears have to be in the right place, though. The mechanical arm has to be sturdy.

STEP 3 : Make Program

Use IFTTT to make 2 programs. Alexa should be included. There are pictures of the programs you have to make for this invention, below.

STEP 4 : Put Everything Together

D6da8768 2e8f 4b75 9561 36f08eeb3e0f

Connect the DC Motor's connecter to the axel, and the power cord in the plug. Make sure your IFTTT program is on, and Alexa is working.

STEP 5 : Test Out

Use the machine. In the video, there is a demonstration. This test will make sure every thing is structurally sound, and nothing will break. If your faucet lever is bigger, you might have to add more LEGO pieces on the mechanical arm to support the structure.
