Project Proposal


Don't you just hate it when you walk all the way down to the laundry room to find every single machine in use? Our 'Smart Home' idea will bring a solution to this problem. Our idea consists of a device that will alert, through a text message, a washing machine's user that his or her laundry is done, and at the same time alerting those who were waiting in line that a washing machine is now available.
