This project was done as an extra credit opportunity for my instrumentation class at UNC Charlotte. It allows me to know when my door has been opened in case I was not expecting someone to enter my apartment. Below is a video demonstration of what happens when my door is opened. First, the photon's built in LED blinks to indicate that it is creating an event when the beam between the LED and the photo resistor is broken. Second, IFTTT receives the event and then sends a notification to my phone using the app pushalot for windows phones. I can then either ignore the event if I was expecting someone to enter my apartment or I can view my webcam remotely to see who is inside of my apartment.
