The Arduino GSM Shield connects your Arduino to the internet using the GPRS wireless network. Just plug this module onto your Arduino board, plug in a SIM card from an operator offering GPRS coverage and follow a few simple instructions to start controlling your world through the internet. You can also make/receive voice calls (you will need an external speaker and microphone circuit) and send/receive SMS messages.
As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your own circuits. Hundreds of thousands of Arduino boards are already fueling people’s creativity all over the world, everyday. Join us now, Arduino is you!
Requires an Arduino board (not included)
Operating voltage 5V (supplied from the Arduino Board)
Connection with Arduino Uno on pins 2, 3 (Software Serial) and 7 (reset).
The shield uses a radio modem M10 by Quectel . It is possible to communicate with the board using AT commands. The GSM library has a large number of methods to communicate with the shield.
- Make/receive voice calls and send/receive SMS messages easily for your robots or other device
- Software serial communication with Arduino
- TCP/UDP and HTTP supported
- 85.6 kbps GPRS data downlink and uplink maximum
- Developed with Telefónica of Spain
- Send/Receive command or data with your robots,household appliances or your friends
- Get information like temperature or humidity when the distance was not suitable for wifi or Xbee
- Make an alarm device when you are out
- Work as a cloud calculator
