Inspiration

Google Nest Thermostat

What it does

A smart outlet that allows the user to control which devices and lights he/she wants to turn off when they exit the house, and sends them a notification if they leave without remembering to do so. The app connects the phone to the smart outlet through Bluetooth to send messages to the outlet wirelessly.

How I built it

Arduino and Android Studio

Challenges I ran into

Time constraints

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Actually developed the app in 24 hours, which we were not expecting to happen

What I learned

How to develop apps for Android, how to use GitHub

What's next for GoEco

Will develop and expand upon at another hackathon
