Sensor Node for monitoring your Washing Machine

Viktor from Victor’s DIY, built a small circuit which monitors the washing process of his washing maschine, in order to alarm him when the maschine has finished the work. Of course the machine has some fancy LEDs on it which informs the user about the end of a program, but Victor decided that he needs something more acoustical 😉
The idea behind this work is to use a Freescale’s MMA7361 3-axis accelerometer to monitor the movement of his machine in order to detect the end of the washing program.
