    Last week we were telling you about how to keep your house warm with our HVAC IR Remote module. So, in order to give you ideas on how to make a Smart IoT Home, we are featuring this week the 3G+GPS Mobile Kit, that will surely be helpful to work out a security system.

    This kit includes the 3G/GPRS shield for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo, that enables connectivity to high speed cellular networks and allows to make calls, send and receive SMS and even connect to a GPS server to calculate the position.

    You can find some very interesting items in this kit to develop your own surveillance system, like the 2MP Video Camera to record videos and pictures, a small Electret Microphone to record audio, and several sensors to measure light (LDR) or temperature (MPC9700A sensor).

    Apart from all this, you may want to include some other sensor from our shop to detect intruders, such as the PIR sensor to detect motion, or the Hall-Effect Sensor to detect when a window or a door is being opened. Make sure to take a look at our Motion category to check all the options to configure your own project.

    You can see in the next video a video call using the 3G/GPRS shield for Arduino:

  • Where is my car? Use Arduino for realtime GPS+GPRS tracking of vehiclesJuly 29, 2014

    If you have ever been victim of a car burglary and lost your car forever, you will be happy to know that Cooking Hacks has the solution for you: using geolocation tracking we will teach you how to prepare an useful gadget that will send you a SMS with your car location - and even will mark it in Google Maps - in case you get your car stolen.

    How does it work?

    This works as follows: you just call to the gadget, hidden previously in your car (in the trunk, the glove compartment or under your spare tyre, for example), and it will get the position data and send the realtime position to a web server. You can track your stolen car in realtime or even locate it in Google Maps.

    Use Arduino for realtime GPS+GPRS tracking of vehicles

    The heart of the gadget: the GPRS + GPS Quadband Module (SIM908)

    What is required to prepare this cool gadget is a Geolocation Tracker (GPRS + GPS) with SIM908, an external GPRS-GSM Antenna, an external GPS Antenna, a 9V Alkaline Battery, a 2300mA/h Rechargeable Battery and a Barrel Jack Adapter. With this materials, you can follow now our complete step-by-step tutorial that will guide you through the assembly and coding process.

    We will be happy to hear how this gadget have helped you recovering your stolen car. And use your imagination: we are sure you can use this gadget or a similar one to track other moving objects.
