How would I mod my car's alarm system to call/text my cell phone whenever it goes off? Answered
Last October (Oct. 12, 2009), my car was broken into in my own driveway, about 1:00 am. The thieves got away with my entire audio system and gps. Ever since then, I've developed somewhat of a phobia of leaving my car unattended. I have to check on my car fairly close to every two hours or I start to have a minor panic attack, including while I sleep, and I am beginning to have major problems staying awake for school and work.
I saw this instructable ( www.instructables.com/id/Motorbike-Phone-Alarm/ ) and realized how much stress it would take away if I had something similar to this. However, this example was activated when the motorcycle was moved. I would need to have a phone that could be wired into my car's pre-existing alarm system, and programmed to call me whenever the alarm goes off.
Any ideas on how this could be done?
