Save Time And Water With This DIY Automatic Shower Timer

Save Time and Water with This DIY Automatic Shower Timer

If you're looking to reduce the amount of time you spend in the shower, this DIY setup starts a timer automatically as soon as you close the door.

If you catch yourself just standing under the hot water a little too often, a timer can tell you how long you're really taking in there. This build from Instructables user GeckoDiode has a set five minute timer that starts beeping when the time is up. It uses an ATtiny85 microcontroller, speakers, LEDs, and a small limit switch that attaches to the backside of your shower door. When you get in and close the shower door, the five-minute timer starts, but if you finish up early, the timer will automatically reset itself.

It's a nice little setup if you're trying to conserve water, or if you waste unnecessary time in the shower. Check out a complete list of parts and instructions at the link below
