Hey everyone!

So I have a fun project idea: make a fall detection unit does the following:

Detect a fall event
Send beeps or some other output, asking if user is okay
User sends some input (probably a button press) if they're okay, and the unit goes back to "normal" mode
Else, unit sends a text to an emergency contact

I'm building this project on an MSP430G2553 LaunchPad and an ADXL345 accelerometer. I bit banged SPI to talk to the ADXL345, and can now detect a fall event (yay!).

However, I feel like I'm stuck now; how do I approach the IoT aspect of this project? Please point me in the right direction!

FWIW, I also have a CC3100 WiFi module lying around.

Thanks everyone!
