Get Your Toilet Roll On

And now for a little bit of IoT fun, my latest project over on Hackster.io

Roll Pole: Never run out of toilet paper again. Roll Pole monitors your toilet paper and orders fresh supplies when you are down to that last roll.

Yes, internet connected toilet paper! It is what the internet was invented for…

Roll Pole uses a Particle Photon and IR sensors to detect and report the number of rolls on the pole. This is sent to Tinamous where it can be monitored along with the battery voltage.

Using the Particle and the Tesco IFTTT channels fresh loo roll supplies can be added to your Tesco shopping cart automatically.
