Arduino Sms

Hello,  I'm completely new to Arduino and wondering if anyone could help me.  i'm doing an art piece on communications and interactions around the world.  Each person will have there own led light.  Whenever people contact me from around the world eva text or call (preferably through wifi), I want they're light to flash for a few seconds.  No idea what parts I need and how to achieve this.  Hope this makes sense to anyone and have any advice for me?

Servo SM-S4304R

After long time of searching, without success, i would like some help. I purchased one Sm-s4303r servo motor. My questions are: 1.How can i do it work for 3 seconds at normal speed and to stop it for example 12hours. To work 2 times per day. 2.What will be the suitable servo which can do 180° in every movement. I mean 180° now and the second (to complete the cycle 360) in 10 hours.. I would be glad if somebody could help me. Thanks, Chris

Wearable that vibrates on text/sms

I am looking for a way to make a wearable (bracelet or hanger) that will vibrate when I send a signal (i.e. text message?). It's intended use is to alert players to certain pre arranged situations in a game. As coach I can not always reach my players across the field by voice so I want to send an alert signal. Also this is more discreet. A smart watch is to big and volnurable. Bluetooth does not have the range so I am thinking gsm. Any suggestions on how to build such a device?

Real-time Ocr and SMS Notification?

How can I develope a program as I explain below? I don't know where to start. By the way, I know C language. Is there any helpful resource about this subject? Thanks. For example, there is a live number generator between 1-15 as image. This images changes every 10 seconds. Program should catch the image everytime as digit number. By the way, there is 3 integer variable as a,b and c: If the number between 1-5, then variables b and c should increment by 1 and 'a' should be equal to 0. If the number between 6-10, then variables a and c should increment by 1 and b should be equal to 0. If the number between 11-15, then variables a and b should increment by 1 and c should be equal to 0. If a,b or c is equal to 13, then program should send an SMS to phone as for example 'a is 13.

Has anyone Hacked the," Nsd Power Ball Sm-01 Speedometer ?

Has anyone Hacked the," Nsd Power Ball Sm-01 Speedometer ? The Sm-01 ( the speedometer of Nsd power Ball ) Functions are: a. the count of revolutions ( hundred unit ) b. the current RPM c. the historical highest RPM/ the current highest RPM d. the physical index, 30 sec., 60 sec., 90 sec. The above-mentioned functions work individually. The speedometer can make users understand the use state of PB and provide real figures for reference. It combines the effects of rehabilitation, entertainment, and contest. Can anyone explain how this speedometer works. Is it Optical ? Since the Power Ball has 5 LED's incorporated in the Gyro Ball does this trigger the output ? Or is it magnetic ? When I, place compass next to the Power Ball the compass dial spins like a motor. How can I, use this speedometer to registered the speed or RPM of wheel ? Looking forward to hearing any suggestions, on how I may HACK this Great Speedometer/ TACH . This speedometer can be found on eBay for about $15.00 it's small and compact. It surprises me that no one has Hacked this for other uses !

Arduino intruder alarm modification

We have a professionally installed burglar alarm system that dials out (over a dedicated landline) to a monitoring station when an intrusion is detected.  I'd like to modify it to send us an SMS (via the mobile phone network) and/or email (via wi-fi on a different landline) as well, just in case the phone line is cut, and to make sure we get notified immediately - the monitoring station tries to call on the landline first, then it calls our keyholders and the police, which all takes time.  If I'm 5 minutes away and the alarm is triggered, I'd like to know straight away so I can rush home. The alarm company have quoted a huge sum to make this change, because an updated control control panel would be needed to deal with the texting/emailing.  I can't go cutting into their system or it will invalidate the maintenance contract, so I need to pick up when the alarm is triggered without any physical connection.  Short of remotely detecting a current in the cable to the siren (a 12V DC signal, so how would I detect that?) it occurs to me that using Arduino to listen for the siren might be the best bet.  But I'm an Arduino beginner and I have no idea whether it would be better/easier to detect a noise over a certain threshold - the siren is very loud, but the noise from the adjacent road can be pretty loud too - or to try and detect the particular sound frequency of the siren.  All suggestions gratefully received.

ISO 4in diam clear tube 3-4ft in length for sm pet slide

Hello, I was watching a video where someone was using a mailing tube a hedgehog slide. I wanted to do the same with our heggie as he loves to burrow and will dive off any ledge he can find if we don't watch him. I think the one she used was 3in, but our heggie needs a 4in round and since here is a bit rounder; it needs to be about 3-4ft as well, though we could cut it down. I would like to find an alternative that is clear or semi-clear as it would be nice to be able to see him in the tube as he slides. It also needs to be fairly inexpensive. For anyone interested, our heggies name happens to be Burrow as well. Maybe a fairy whispered it my ear because we choose the name when he was no larger than a large spiky button and it was 6 weeks before we could bring him home. He has wobbly hedgehog syndrome and we really want him to have some fun.  Thanks for any help, Liocorno
