Life line is a button similar to "Life Alert" created using Particle Photon which can send text messages to emergency contacts, post on facebook and tweet automatically, and also call 911 with preset recording at a push of a button.

We implemented the calling, Facebook post and tweeting feature using IFTTT and messaging feature using twilio api.

The goal of this project was to develop a better, cost-effective and modern alternative to the current $30/month life alert system. The goal was also to get introduced to IoT technologies.

So, I developed a life-alert system prototype using particle photon wifi module which can send text messages to close relatives/neighbours at the push of a button.
