I went to an event last week and experimented with the Arduino for the first time. I planned to slowly make progress through following projects other people have successed with. However, this morning a friend with MS fell out of bed when I was staying over and I hearing the calls for help got their partner to help them back into bed. My thinking is that some sensors on a floor mat sending signals to a table lamp in another room to go and off a few times would be useful. OK sending a text message would be good but I expect that is too advanced.
If you can point me in the direction of resources that would give me instructions on a fairly simple solution that would be appreciated.
