Bark Back Interactive Pet Monitor
Resources and Going Further
Here's a summary list of resources for this tutorial:
- MEMS microphone datasheet
- MEMs Microphone Hookup Guide
- MCP3002 datasheet
- CloudMQTT Documentation
- Python MQTT
Check out these additional ideas for expanding upon your Bark Back project:
- Add in an RPi camera module to include video.
- We're already connected to the IoT, so why not throw in some more sensors!
For example, you could monitor hazardous gases (perhaps methane?).
Prefer a reward over barking back? Create an automatic treat dispenser to reward your pet for being quiet for a few hours. Here's a candy-dispensing tutorial for inspiration and to help get you started.
