Emanuele @ dev.emcelettronica.com:

OpenduinoGSM is an open source tool for hobbyists & professional makers. The first project realized is the useful opengate (one ring with your phone and the gate is open). Inspired with OpenduinoGSM!

With OpenduinoGSM you have the option of using the Arduino development environment, so anyone, even those who are unfamiliar electronics and circuits, can try to realize the automation they want by writing simple code in C ++ or by using one of the many open source projects published and modifying it according to their needs. The steps to make a control and/or a wireless automation are few and simple:

GSM based SMS Alert Fire Alarm System using Arduino

2

by jojo @ circuitstoday.com

Recently we have learned how to interface GSM Module with Arduino and send/receive SMS using GSM module. Interfacing any device with a micro controller is the first step to building a useful system or project with that particular device. In this tutorial, we are going to build a very interesting project – a Fire Alarm System which will send SMS to a set of Mobile Numbers when fire occurs in a particular location. We have seen many typical Fire Alarm projects which will alert with a siren or an automatic shutdown mechanism. This fire alarm project make use of modern communication technologies to deal with emergencies.

KCS TraceME expands Internet of Things era by integrating LoRa™

KSC-LoRa

by elektor.com:

KCS BV, based in Dordrecht (NL) has extended their successful TraceME product line with an advanced module, targeted for worldwide mobility in the Internet of Things era.

The latest development of the TraceME GPS/GPRS Track and Trace module will combine the RF location based positioning solution with the LoRa™ technology. This combination offers ‘smart objects’ being even smarter, since LoRa™ enables long range, battery friendly communication in a wide variety of (M2M) applications.

Supporting GPRS/SMS and optional 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, ANT/ANT+ and iBeacon™ provides easy integration with existing wireless networks and mobile apps. The module will be available in Q2/2015 and other variants in the high/mid-range and budget-line will follow shortly after.

by jojo @ circuitstoday.com:

In this article, we are going to see how to interface GSM Module to Arduino. There are different kinds of GSM modules available in market. We are using the most popular module SIM900 and Arduino Uno for this tutorial. Interfacing a GSM module to Arduino is pretty simple. You only need to make 3 connections between the module and arduino. So lets get to business!

Arduino hacked ericsson mobile phone GSM remote control

Arduino hacked Ericsson T65 mobile phone GSM remote control. By Konstantinos Kokoras @ youtube.com:

Accepting incoming call from predifined caller and after 2 rings hungs up and turns on a device through a relay.
Also accepting incoming SMS’s from predifined caller and depending from text tuns on or off a device through a relay.
After each command execution it sends back a confirmation SMS.
Unfortunately Ericsson T65 has only PDU mode for SMS.

Real-time GPS tracking device for vehicles

Check out Cooking Hacks Arduino-based GPS tracker project for vehicles that could be extremely helpful to pinpoint the exact location of the vehicle in case it is stolen. The project uses a GPS+GPRS shield with an antenna to locate the coordinates of the vehicle. You need to call the device from your preset phone number, which will be verified by the SIM908 module on the tracker, and it will then send you an SMS with the GPS coordinates of its location.

Bluetooth mobile phone accessory for Missed calls and SMS

FP7M9G1H350ECJ6.LARGE

zmashiah @ instructable shows us how he build a display to easily check for his phone status, like battery remaining charge, missed calls and unread SMS. Data is transfered to an Arduino board via bluetooth. He writes:

When at home, I do not carry my phone with me everywhere… so sometimes phone rings or an SMS comes in and I do not hear that. With the volume of music played by the teenagers at home, that is not a surprise :-) so I decided to build a small accessory that will show up the number of missed calls and unread SMS. In order to ensure it is very visible I use a 7 Segment LED display so it can be viewed from distance.

GSM Multifuction Alarm with SIM900

It’s small but packed with features. The GSM alarm we present today, sports a PIR motion sensor, can be battery operated and it’s capable to communicate via GSM. It can transmit alarm conditions and receive commands from remote. It’s also capable to indicate problems such as is insufficient voltage supply or tampering.

It’s not so conventional for antitheft system: to integrate a movement sensor, a PIR motion sensor and a temperature probe in a single appliance: all this accompanied by an SMS sending GSM / GPRS module. This circuit was born as a very versatile, ready to use, built-in alarm system: no installation is required, you can just drop it and it’s ready to work. It’s not by chance that is designed to be battery operated: it also features a battery state control to check the power.

GSM Voice Dialer with Automation Control

new projects on Open-electronics.org:

Connected to a burglar alarm or fire alarm in the event of making phone calls playing voice messages. Controlled via DTMF actuators can operate on the spot.

In recent years we have introduced several telecontrols based on the SIM900 GSM module. We released schematics and code for a gate opener (that activates when receiveing a call from a given number), a GSM thermostat to manage the temperature of remote houses with simple text messages, a remote alarm control with DTMF and, last but not least, a remote alarm with I/O and controlled via calls or SMS.

Many of these tools send text messages or place phone calls in response to changes to the electrical inputs. In some cases, especially when the receiver is a human, nothing is like a voice that clearly yields you screaming “fire in progress!
