Trap Notification

This is a project to alert me via email when one of my traps(Rat/Possum) is triggered.


The basic components wired together. 

The reed switch powers the MCU when the trap is triggered. 
On boot the MCU sends a MQTT message then every subsequent 6 hours until reset(manually).

Here is the trap all wired up, including a modification to make the antenna directional.
