Twine

This wireless sensor square can do things like tweet you when your laundry is done drying or text you if someone opens your front door. You’d never know from looking at it, but it’s got an internal temperature sensor, an internal accelerometer (for vibration, impact, and motion detection), a magnetic switch (useful for doors and anything else that moves), and a moisture sensor. To use it, you go to a Web app to set up rules for what kind of message it should send you if one of the sensors is tripped. Twine also can send you email messages if that’s your preferred medium.
