I'm really not used to Arduino and I would like to know if it would be possible to tweak my doorbell, most specifically the bell itself, to embed a small arduino that would be able to send a notification "somewhere" (well, if it can connect to wifi and send an HTTP request I can handle the rest).
I'm guessing that there will be electricity in the bell itself (to.. ring it I guess) so I could use that to power the Arduino.
My goal is definitelly not to create a "smart" doorbell but to upgrade a tiny bit the one we already have. My biggest problem is that when I am in the office, I can barely hear it and if I turn music on, it becomes impossible.
Before launching myself in this, I'd like to know if it is at all possible. I can (try to) provide more information if needed.
EDIT: I'm guessing that the bell rings when it gets an electric signal when the button at the door is pressed. My goal would be to hook up to that signal to get the arduino to send an HTTP request. Now, my arduino knowledge is very limited and I'd like to see if anyone could give a tiny bit of guidance on how to proceed (which one, which module, ...)
EDIT2: As requested, here is a picture of the bell part: [![bell]]
In the center there is a copper coil so I would guess that when someone presses the button, the little hammer (pointy thing going up) hits the 2 metal plates (up and down). I could also see that there is a third cable (purple) hidden behind that is not currently used but I have no clue what it is for or if there is power at all on this thing...
EDIT3: I realized that I have a Friedland D780 on the fuse box (so right next to all the power I can need for an Arduino). It is unclear if I could get the pulse from here though. Anyone?
I can't upload a picture with my phone but I'll add it ASAP...
