Does your house Slack you? Mine does. The crazy sensors I built -- IoT-style

Over the past four years, I’ve built a ton of crazy sensors to monitor and control different activities around my house. I have sensors that are currently monitoring temperature at multiple locations around my house include two freezers. My garage has a garage door sensor to know if it is open or closed as well as a light sensor, complete with Slack/Discord integration for alerts and alarms. I also monitor my washer/dryer and HVAC. All custom-built from $5 microcontroller.

This fun presentation will be going deep into what I've built, what worked, what didn't work, why I built it, and how you can build your own – if you think that's cool. This will be a light, fun, easy-to-follow presentation no matter your technical background – no prior knowledge necessary to enjoy.
