I was thinking about my Tiles. While they are extremely useful, they do have severe limitations - namely, that they need a Bluetooth connection to your phone to report their location. This restricts their tracking to "somewhere within 60 or so feet of your phone", which is very low.
What it does
elit shows you where it is from anywhere in the world. I made a website to show the location of the device.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Making the text and email alerts was a bit challenging. The Twilio APIs do take a little bit to get used to. Twilio's functions turned out to be very helpful.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Making a complete project on my own.
What I learned
Twilio APIs are very useful. Also, how to wire a breadboard.
What's next for elit
Mobile app, more advanced alert system (e.g. "text me when elit arrives at a certain location").
