    As you surely can see, this is still very much a work in progress. None the less, if supplied with permanent power from an outlet, it could be used as is. Running from batteries won't last long at the moment.

    Possible power usage improvements include:

    • Reducing duty cycle
    • Wake only when car approaching
    • Use switching mode regulator instead of linear regulator
    Other improvements would be a custom PBC and a custom casing.

This would be good as my dad hangs things on strings from the ceiling and my brothers constantly hit and swing them and they fall down and he gets mad that he has to climb back up and tie them again. Not to mention we run into them when the garage is empty.  I like it!!
