Amazon Dash button Lambda function for sending an email based on the button press to the facilities request department.
'use strict';

/**
* This is a sample Lambda function that sends an Email on click of a
* button. It creates a SNS topic, subscribes an endpoint (EMAIL)
* to the topic and publishes to the topic.
*
* Follow these steps to complete the configuration of your function:
*
* 1. Update the email environment variable with your email address.
* 2. Enter a name for your execution role in the "Role name" field.
*    Your function's execution role needs specific permissions for SNS operations
*    to send an email. We have pre-selected the "AWS IoT Button permissions"
*    policy template that will automatically add these permissions.

Raspberry Pi Source Code

Python
This code handles the reception of the button press event from the ESP8266, then creates the facilities request to the appropriate end user via a gmail account. Upon submitting the request, the code then polls the gmail account to determine when the request has been assigned and when it has been completed. Once completed, it notifies the ESP8266 board so that the indication LED can be changed.
#######################################################################
# facilities.py - Monitors a Mosquitto MQTT queue for facility events
# from an array of facility panels in bathrooms.  These panels consist 
# of a 3 button panel and an ESP8266 board to gain WIFI access and 
# send publish messages to the MQTT broker.  These
# panels are used to indicate issues in the bathrooms that need attention.
# Currently, these are known as:
#   Top Button = Paper Towels = Button 1 value
#   Middle Button = Soap Dispenser Issue = Button 2 value
#   Bottom Button = Plumbing Issue = Button 3 value
# 
# The hardware to do this is already developed (AdaFruit Huzzah
# ESP8266 with NodeCMU), along with the Lua software to run on
# the ESP8266. 
#
# This code is expecting messages from the Mosquitto MQTT broker
# which include a sensor name (room number) followed by 3 values for 
# the 3 buttons on each panel. An example of the contents would be:
#    "BR-C-404 1 0 1"
#  
# where a value of 1 indicates the button is currently pressed
# and a value of 0 indicates the button is not pressed.  These messages
# are published under the topic "/facilities".
#
# Upon receiving the button press event, this code then determines 
# the current state of the facilities request for this type of service
# request.  If no facilities request has been made, then an email is 
# generated to the facilities request email address via a 
# gmail account. After the request email has been made, future button 
# presses for the same service will not result in additional emails 
# to the facilities department. 
# 
# The facilities request department then assigns the issue internally 
# in their system, which generates an email back to the gmail account
# with a subject of 'Your Facilities Request #00047546 has been assigned'.
#
# Once the bathroom item is serviced, the facilities request department
# will mark the work order as completed, which generates an email back
# to the gmail account with the subject of "Your Facilities Request 
#  #00047546 is complete. Can you please complete our Survey?".  When this
# happens, this script then publishes back to the Mosquitto MQTT broker
# on the topic "/completed".  When the ESP8266 board receives this message,
# it resets the LED near the button.
# 
# In order to track the number of requests serviced, we created a 
# dashboard in the Cayenne myDevices tool.  Once the Cayenne software
# is loaded on the Raspberry Pi, it uses another MQTT broker to send and 
# receive messages with the dashboard.  This code then sends messages to 
# local Cayenne MQTT broker, which publishes them to the dashboard.  
# Each statistic that is tracked gets a unique channel number within
# the Cayenne MQTT server.  The channel numbers are as follows:
#     
#     Problem Item      Action Taken      MQTT Channel Number
#   ===========================================================
#     Paper Towels      Button Pressed         1
#     Soap Dispenser    Button Pressed         2
#     Plumbing Issue    Button Pressed         3
#     Paper Towels      Submitted Requests     4
#     Soap Dispenser    Submitted Requests     5
#     Plumbing Issue    Submitted Requests     6
#     Paper Towels      Completed Requests     7
#     Soap Dispenser    Completed Requests     8
#     Plumbing Issue    Completed Requests     9
#     Paper Towels      Reset Last Request     10
#     Soap Dispenser    Reset Last Request     11
#     Plumbing Issue    Reset Last Request     12
#
#  Pressing the Reset Last Request button on the dashboard sends a value 
#  of '1' to the MQTT broker on the Raspberry Pi on that particular channel.
#  This causes the Pi to reset the state of the current outstanding request for #  that particular problem.  This then allows the button to pressed again.

NotWet.lua

Lua
This code is running on the ESP8266 after the WiFi connection is established. This code detects button presses and sends data messages to the MQTT Broker running on the Raspberry Pi. It also receives messages from the Raspberry Pi MQTT Broker to indicate when a facilities request has been completed.
