IoT refrigerator tracker tutorial


Have you ever found yourself mindlessly snacking not even realizing what, or how frequently you are eating?  Even worse, have you ever had something in the fridge that you are excited to eat and when you go to take it out you realize someone else already beat you to it?

Consider these problems of the past with this new refrigerator alarm.  By utilizing a Texas Instruments Launchpad™ development kit, SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3100 BoosterPack™, Educational BoosterPack MKII and services provided by Temboo, we will be able to track every time the refrigerator is opened and document it to a spreadsheet on Google Drive.
