Hello guys and girls (I hope i’m not the only girl )
My name is Tina and i’m new at Engineers Garage and to electronics as well. I spent a lot of time reading all these articles you post and i want to say that your work is the best.
My question now. I have a cottage really far from me and i want to built a module in order to notify me in case of intruder. More details, i want a Gsm kit that will call me on my mobile phone in case it detects any noise. I bought from Internet a Chinese bug but it never worked on. Is there anyone who has built smting similar in order to guide me?
Thank you in advance,

This is not such a big deal. You can use an IR sensor to sense any intrusion and send a warning message or call to a predefined mobile number.
But there are certain things which you should consider.
Basically your project should work 24*7 without any failure. Continuous power supply, stability of the controller which you choose, and the stability of the code, sensor performance etc. will be having significant effect. There should not be false triggering also.
What you meant by that “Chinese bug”? Is that any hardware?
Anyway, choose a MCU, GSM module, sensor which you like. Design the sensing circuit first. Then try to interface the GSM module. There are lot of examples for GSM interfacing in engineers garage, which I hope you’ve already found.
You can start the project and update your doubts here. Surely you will get a lot of help.

To get started, refer tutorials from Engineers garage & post you experiaence, doubts to resolve.

Thank you for your replies,
I saw Simcom GSM/GPRS/GPS Module (SIM548C) which has Dual analog audio interface. So i think i can attach a microphone on this. Do you know any other GSM module where i can add a microphone? i found on internet a picture of smth similar with my case but i don’t know how to upload in order to see itJuly 23, 2012 at 6:26 pm #8315AmrithParticipant
You can try SIMADO GFX11 modem for audio.July 31, 2012 at 6:40 pm #8377Vikrant NegiParticipant
Read this post about GSM module.
Hope it would help.March 28, 2013 at 6:47 am #9383umar farrokParticipant
better u use pir sensor with gsm sim 300 or gsm sim 900 module for your conceptAugust 22, 2013 at 4:45 pm #10357
i have fly900 gsm module.
previously it was working properly but now it shows error means it shows number of smileys and symbols wen it is connected to hypertrerminal.
it is nt stoping untill power supply is turn off of the gsm modem. and its not accepting any AT commands….
pls help me to come out of this…..as soons as possibleAugust 22, 2013 at 4:53 pm #10358
i have purchased fly900 gsm module.
previously it was working well..but now when i connect it to hyperterminal it is not accepting AT commands..
it respionses countinuosly some smileys,shapes etc. not stopping…
help me to come out of this problem..August 23, 2013 at 5:20 am #10360
Try with baud rates 9600 and 4800. Check the connections and also check the power adaptor you are using for the gsm module.August 23, 2013 at 5:56 pm #10367
this is my code for atmega8….its not working..
help me..where to edit code…
this code is transmitting commands to hyperterminal but not working with mcu
#include<avr/io.h> //This is the header for AVR Microcontroller
#define F_CPU 12000000
#include”uart.h” //header file to program uart
uart_init(); //initialisation of uart
uart_string(“ATr”); //function to pass a string
uart_string(“ATE0r”); //function to pass a string
uart_string(“AT+CMGF=1r”); //function to pass a string
uart_string(“AT+CMGS=”+91**********”r”); //function to pass a string
uart_string(“op is ok”);
rly soon..plzAugust 24, 2013 at 6:21 am #10370
Have you fixed that problem with your GSM modem? Send the same commands from hyperterminal to GSM modem and see whether it is able to send a message or not.
Connect the GSM module to the microcontroller only after 3 to 4 once it is turned on.
The first step is to figure out whether the problem is in your code or with the hardware.
