Doorbell sends message to Cell Phone

at 11:13 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


When someone rings your doorbell wouldn’t it be nice to know about it when you aren’t home? Well this project will do just that. Pressing the doorbell will send a message to your cell phone and send you a picture of who is there. You often hear that robbers often ring the doorbell to make sure no one is at home before breaking in. I am thinking that a few of the Arduino outputs could be purposed to spray a water gun and turn on a siren. 

Thanks for the tip Clement.

 “How does it work ?

  • 1. When the doorbell is pushed, the Arduino sends an HTTP request to the PushingBox API.

  • 2. PushingBox launches the user’s scenario and gets a picture from the web camera.

  • 3. PushingBox sends a Push notification to the user’s phone and a mail message with the picture attached.”
