    Default Home Automation: Shitty Toilet Warning

    This was originally a joke between a couple of us when I first started looking into home automation, but with iOS 10.2 adding notifications in many classes of devices, I've finally been able to make the dream come true.

    The goal was to make it so I know before walking into the shitter if someone left it smelling like shit. Elgato Eve makes the Room sensor which is an air quality sensor that detects volatile organic compounds, AKA shit particles in the air. Threw one of these badboys in the bathroom, and now it can track precisely when it smells like shit, every 10 mins.

    It classifies air quality based on the amount of VOCs in the air, and after a couple of baseline shits, I was able to confirm that taking a dump with the fan off would spike it to the Inferior level. Once it lowered back to fair, I walked in, took a huge wiff, and confirmed it didn't smell like shit anymore.

    I added a Philips Hue Bloom outside the bathroom door, and 2 triggers in Homekit. One to turn it on red when air quality changes to Inferior, and one to turn it off when it goes back to fair. So now, anyone taking a shit in the bathroom will light up the outside red, warning other users not to go in there until the red light turns off.

    This is officially the dumbest yet greatest in using home automation. As a bonus, we can now see who has the worst smelling shit.

    I remember when this was still a dream and now it's here haha.

    Only problem I see is that a lot of "non shit" particles could spike up the chart since it's measuring VOCs. Is there a chart to show what kind of VOCs each shit emits?

    I thoroughly love the red-light warning you implemented. Great way to shame friends and family members and to always have a chuckle about it. Any other ideas on the horizon, rage2?

    Actually, if it wasn't for the air freshener in there, the scale always bottoms out at 450ppm and doesn't register anything. With the door open, it hovers between 450-600ppm. Door closed, it slowly spikes up and levels out around 1000-1200pm. A shit will instantly spike it up to 1800ppm and up depending on how bad it is. The record so far is 3050ppm. I'm not even close to hitting that.

    With all the other stuff you seem to do, how the hell do you have time for this? Do you even sleep?

    Anyway Rage, I was remembering your alcohol level testing thread. Can't wait to see the pot one when it becomes legal

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    My next step is to tie in the fan so it turns on automatically when it detects shit. Although buh_buh suggested that I make it force disable the fan for the lolz.

    Wow this is awesome. I had to check the date to make sure this wasn't an April fool's day post. Will be great to surprise visitors with the red light when they exit.
