GSM Switch and W bus controller.. £77.00

Hi,
I know this has probably been flogged to death, but I wondered how cheap I could do a phone / text message remote controlled FBH.

Turned out to be £77.00 using a PAYG O2 sim with £10.00 credit.

The GSM switch was from GSM-UK https://www.gsm-uk.net
I used the Dual GSM controller @ £27.00 inc postage

The W bus controller was off ebay as used by others. £39.00

After a test run, the box was fitted in a space behind the pull down panel underneath the steering wheel.



I am currently using a configurable alarm app to turn it on.



Worked 1st time after initial test run. Took about 2 hours inc assembly.

Cool.

Why does the sim need credit?

Does it txt back?

Hi
The sim doesn't need credit.
One of the gsm switch config options is to reply after it receives a text command. I have this currently enabled. Costs 2p each time it replies.
Might turn it off at some point. Just have to send it a txt telling it not to reply.

Also one of the setup options it to set an administrator phone number, so that only my phone number can switch it or configure it.

Data not used.
