I made a weight sensored phone alarm // MAKE SOMETHING


One hour make in one minute. Episode number 3. Smart Cookie Alarm. Hey World! This year I decided to put together a quick
detector to wake me up when someone takes my Santa cookies. And to do that I am going to hook up a Raspberry
Pi to a weight sensor and calculate the difference in cookie weight. When the cookie weight drops, the Raspberry
Pi is going to send a signal through Wi-Fi to Pushover’s cloud which will notify my phone. Then, a Tasker program on my phone will catch
the notification, trigger an alarm, and wake me up. Let’s make a Gravity Based Mobile Alarm For Vanishing Confections. Let’s get started. Stop! Done! Looks like Texas So… …now… if I remove one cookie… …it should work… YES!! It works! I got a Raspberry Pi, a battery, and the weight
sensor, inside the box. When I place the cookie platter on the box,
the Raspberry Pi is going to calculate the cookie weight. Then when I take one cookie, the Raspberry
Pi is going to sound the alarm on my phone. Alright guys, if you want to make your own,
I am going to put the code in my github account and links to Tasker, Pushover, and these cookie’s
recipe in the description below. So check it out!

  2. Hi , This is what I have been looking for since long time.
    1] Can you please let me know which battery did you use and how long will it last? I want to use a non rechargeable one for my project , any suggestions.
    2] Can you please paste the amazon load cell link here?
    3] Can we set a threshold weight which can be configurable via the app ?

  3. It's very nice to see something else than temperature sensors beeing made out of pis! I like the style of your vids.
