1. More or less, this was to reacquaint my self with the MKR1000(s) I had been given at MakerFaire (Thx Arduino's Arturo and Christina!) using scraps being thrown out while in the process of moving [again] -- before the great war.
2. Learning to prefer to self host IoT streams -- if better positioned, I would implore and collaborate with some one to create open-source privately hosted IoT software for your own domain - so as to permit more flexibility of function. Hint hint, nudge nudge, Hackaday!
3. As said, only scraps -- no digital potentiometer or transistor? Hold my Don Julio -- wanting to thread 120V, we [me] improvised with a servo and hot glue. https://hackaday.io/project/27578/log/68403-no-digital-pot-or-transistor-hold-my-don-julio #Hackcycling
4. Shelved bcz - meh.
5. The motion sensor and a-to-be-abandoned-Arduino-Uno were then applied to an entrance way motion triggered random Neopixel display [included in the video and code included below]
