Excellent doggo detection. 8/10 would listen to bark.
As the ESP32 can do voice/wakeword detection I was kind of hoping this would be some kind of wake word detection rejigged to detect barks. But still an impressive detector (and much simpler!) :)
(Full disclosure: I work on ESP32 software at Espressif.)
Wow I had no idea. Thanks for letting me know about that. Perhaps there is a need for Woof Alert v2 :-P
Does Barry have his own email address?
I love this, and am strongly reminded of Gary Larson’s dog bark translator cartoon. (All the dogs end up yelling “Hey!”)
Cool project. Although, I do know a dog or two that might be the first of their species to get hit with the spam button.
Of course you can use biff(1) for mail notification.
Neat! You could even set up a bunch around the house to determine whether it’s a delivery or a squirrel.
