I really need some help. Has someone designed something like this before? I haven't found anything yet.
My relative sometimes forgets to take his medication.
Can anyone give me ideas or links to start off? You don't have to go out of you way to design something for me but I just need to start somewhere or if it would even work.
His system is like this one in the link below, you tare off the sachet at the appropriate time. breakfast, mid day, afternoon and night.
I’m thinking something like a device at the medication box and a device on his bedside table switching from green to red LED and connected wireless to communicate between the 2 and when he looks at the medication box OR goes to bed there is a green LED slightly glowing on his bedside table AND on the medication box which indicates he has taken them but if he goes to bed and he hasn’t taken them then there will be a big bright red LED glowing on the medication box and the bedside table so the reason for it being bright red on the bedside table is it would be so bright you can’t sleep with it in your face thus you won’t forget to take your medication haha.
I was thinking an arduino based device which somehow detects if that segment sachet is gone...LDR or maybe infrared reflectance sensor then it would wirelessly sends a signal to the receiver in the bedroom switching a red or green LED on.
or maybe a WiFi relay kit would work for the LED switch on part??
I can get whatever needed and I do have two NRF24L01 transceivers already https://www.jaycar.com.au/arduino-compatible-2-4ghz-wireless-transceiver-module/p/XC4508
Any help/input would be unbelievably appreciated!!!
