Trigger actions online with a simple button

OpenTrigger - trigger actions online with a simple button

TL;DR: We're closing the gap between the physical and the online world with a physical button.

Trigger actions with physical buttons via bluetoothLE (very cheap, batteries last for ~2 years, no wire needed), solid wired buttons or a mobile web-application and, soon, using sensors as well.

Base-Station can handle complex operations, with many expansion options (SMS, power relay, sensors, …), triggered actions could start functions on the base-station, sent to a cloud service or trigger directly other services on the internet.

Open-Source is our way to go! Basic software and hardware will be Open Source, so everyone can participate.
