Demo Extravaganza App Submission: Get of my Lawn by Steve Malmgren

PowerApp: Get off my lawn!!!!! 

 Fun with AI Builder (Steve Malmgren)

This simple app leverages the new “preview AI Builder” capabilities recently introduced to the Power Platform.  I’ve built an Object Detection model (inspired by “Hot Dog, Not Hot Dog” from the HBO Silicon Valley show) to detect dog(s) on a lawn.  I then built a PowerApp to use the ObjectDetector control to analyze an image.  If a positive hit is detected, a Flow is invoked that uses a Custom Connector (created using a Postman Collection) against the Rachio API, to turn on my front lawn sprinklers.
