The frustration of not knowing whether the dishwasher is running or finished is not to be under expressed. This project's aim is to create a way of detecting whether the dishwasher is running or has just completed.

We utilize an Arduino board hooked up to sensors which detect when the dishwasher starts running. It will then send out notifications via text or email to all subscribers to let everyone know that the dishwasher has started.

An imaginary cat...

Dishwasher Assistant

...will then watch the progress of the dishwasher and when the dishwasher timer reaches zero, it will send out another message letting everyone know the dish washer is complete. An lcd screen on the Arduino unit will provide a countdown and status message as well.

Users can subscribe via email, txt, or the Web App GUI.
