It is a delivery notification system it will help with delivery notifications so maybe if the users gone or there and is maybe asleep they will get 3 notifications via sms or verbally or email. Or even if their awake but maybe their elderly and can’t hear well this could help with that too. The main purpose though is to make sure the user gets their delivery notifications on time not all services delivery notification systems will alert the user right then and there.

How I came about this

I was setting in my room one day awaiting a thought on what to utilize my raspberry pi for... Then it hit me why not a delivery notification system on my pi... Which is how PiDeliverySystem was born! 

What hardware does it run on

Raspberry Pi 3 B+

Why did you make it

I wished to help people.

How do I build it
