I recently purchased a Blink 1 and has an idea, but lack the fundamental programing knowledge to make it work properly.
I would like to program the blink (i guess it would have to be through ifttt functions) to flash a certain color (yellow) for 5 seconds if a door is opened in the house, and to either turn steady burn green or steady burn red based on whether or not a certain presence censor is located in the mesh.
The idea is that my wife can be in bed upstairs, and if I arrive home she can tell if it is me arriving or perhaps someone who isn’t me. I work wonky hours and we are buying a new home, so it would be nice to help her feel safe knowing that a) the sound she heard is the door opening, b) it is only me opening the door after coming in later from work.
The other option I can think of that would make it slightly different is to use a phillips hue bridge with a bloom to make an arrival notification.
Not sure if my idea is too complex, but I have NO coding experience and it seems like a lot for me to learn. I would eventually like to learn, but it won’t happen before this project… Cheers.
