Gate Jedi
Having discovered several spare Midichlorians in my liquor cabinet, I trained and applied them to opening a large cumbersome gate. The FORCE motion travels through my inner what-nots and is translated by the Pebble Classic accelerometer toggling a command sent to the (Particle) Cloud (City) which returns to the Particle Photon triggering a TIP120 to fire a button on an existing RF transceiver.


May the ridiculous hand gestures be with you, always.



Particle Photon Code
// Gate Jedi
// Vije Miller

int sig = D7;
int command = 0;

void setup() {
pinMode(sig, OUTPUT);
Spark.function("gate",gateJedi);
digitalWrite(sig, LOW);
}

void loop() {
}

int gateJedi(String command) {
if (command=="open") {
digitalWrite(sig,HIGH);
delay(3000);
digitalWrite(sig,LOW);
command = 0;
}
else {
digitalWrite(sig,LOW);
}
}



Pebble.js Gate Jedi APP
// Gate Jedi Peddle APP (Version 1.3)
// Vije Miller
// Pebble Blink APP @Jack-Dangerfield

var Accel = require('ui/accel');
Accel.init();
var UI = require('ui');
var ajax = require('ajax');
var Vector2 = require('vector2');

// Create Window
var main_window = new UI.Window();

// Open Button and Display
var txtOnLabel = new UI.Text({
position: new Vector2(0, 50),
size: new Vector2(144, 30),
font: 'Gothic 28 Bold',
text: 'GATE JEDI',
textAlign: 'center',
color: 'white'
});

// Display Main Window
main_window.backgroundColor('black');
main_window.add(txtOnLabel);
main_window.show();

// URL To Particle Cloud
function Toggle(function_name,function_value){
var URL = 'https://api.particle.io/v1/devices/DEVICE
ID/' + function_name +'?access_token=TOKEN';

ajax(
{
url: URL,
method: 'post',
type: 'json',
data: { "args": function_value}
}
);
}

// Accelerometer Poll and Function (Default 100Hz 25)
Accel.on('data', function(e) {
console.log(e.accel.x);
if (e.accel.x > 900) {
console.log(e.accel.y);
if (e.accel.y > 900) {
Toggle('gate','open');
}}
});

// Button Function and Photon Parameters
main_window.on('click', 'up', function() {
Toggle('gate','open');
});
