Light up an LED when trying to go on a blocked site with a webhook?


#1

Hey everyone!

I am very new to the world of IoT, so perhaps this is as really stupid question. However, I am busy with a DIY project where I want the particle photon to light up a LED every time I try to go on a blocked site (site are blocked with the chrome extension SiteBlocker). I was wondering if this is possible and how? I was looking in the direction of IFTTT or webhooks, but I don’t know if this is the right direction.

Thanks in advance for your ideas!

First you’d need to know whether and how SiteBlocker would throw you an event you could subscribe to in order to let the cloud know about the navigation result.
Once you got that you can have multiple ways to have a Photon react to that.
