We wanted to make the world a better place by solving the problem of having unattended home damages that can be very expensive and hard to get insurance reimbursement for.
What it does
Uses IoT sensors to detect extreme heat, humidity, or other conditions and activates a camera to record the incident. It will give the user a live feed of the occurrence, as well as text for immediate updates. These events will be stored in the Verizon Public Cloud for later reference.
How we built it
We divided up the work into three main parts: interfacing with the sensor and creating the server, sending server data to Android app, and SMS and video sending and calling
