Magic Bell (PushBullet+GMail)


Objective :-

Push notification (PushBullet + GMail) upon pressing wireless home bell.

Item used :-

  1. ESP8266 E-12
  2. Wireless Outdoor Doorbell

Step 1: Step 1 : Find a Tapping Point

Gut the electronic bell and find a suitable point to tap digital signal for the purpose of digitalRead(). In this case, i tapped from an led which turn on for approximately 3 seconds upon button press.

Using the voltmeter, measure the current to not exceed 20mA, in this case, the tapping point yield 5mA, within safe limit for GPIO digitalRead().

WARNING : High current could cause your board to fry. Double check the current, us resistor if needed (V = IR)

Step 2: Step 2 : Rig Up GPIO

Connect wire from the tapping point (in this case, LED ends) towards GPIO : GND and Pin5 (D1).

Step 3: Step 3 : Upload Code and TestItOut!

Copy the the modified Arduino codes & modify the details:-

Get your Device ID through PushBox and Access Token via PushBullet, follow detailed tutorial link below :-

Step 4: Step 4 : Solder It Out & Assemble It Back

Once everything worked out, replace all the crocodile clips and solder it well and assemble everything back! Viola!

    Thank you. It'll be even useful if you have ip camera in order to check who dropped by in real time.
