In my first instructable I will be making a gas alarm which sends message to the user if pollution is detected.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Required
(1) Arduino Uno board (or any Arduino board)
(2) GSM shield (Personally recommended GSM SIM900A).
(3) Jumper Cables
(4) 10 K resistor
(6) MQ 135 gas sensor
Step 2: Making Connections (GSM MODULE TO ARDUINO)
First of all connect the Tx of gsm module to pin #2 of arduino , Rx to pin#3 and make the grounds of both the apparatus common. And don't forget to power the gsm shield with a 12v external power source while running your device.
Step 3: Making Connections (between Sensor and Arduino)
make connections as shown in pic and TREAT YHE SIDE OF SENSOR WITH"MQ135" WRITTEN AS TOP.
and choose analog pin A0.( to match with code otherwise you have to change it)
Step 4: Testing Time
firstly we will run code attached so that we can see readings of sensor in normal and polluted environment on serial monitor.
Note down the values in both the cases.( we can make the environment polluted by lighting incense stick in front of sensor :p)
Step 5: Final Testing
Use the noted values to edit the final code attached and change the cellphone number in code and write the code in arduino.
Open serial monitor and wait
serial monitor will show "status OK" and soon will send sms to the cellphone.
Video soon would be published.
