Trap Notification

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

Components:
Code:

Construction:
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.
