SIM900 Quad-Band GPRS/GSM Shield Development Board for Arduino , , ,

 95.0

Product ID: 11222 SKU: wifi-11222 Categories: , , , Tags: , ,

The SIM900 GSM/GPRS shield is compatible with Arduino. It is based on the SIM900 module from SIMCOM. Allows you to send SMS, MMS, GPRS and audio via UART using AT commands. It has 12 GPIOs, 2 PWMs and buit-in ADC of the SIM900 module.

Quad Band: 850; 900; 1800 and 1900 MHZ, so it should work on GSM networks in all countries. The shield has microphone and headphone jacks for phone calls.

GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communications and is the global standard for mobile communications.

GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service. GPRS is a mobile service on the 2G and 3G cellular communication.

Applications:

The GSM GPRS shield is particularly useful as it allows to:

  • Connect to the Internet over GPRS network
  • Send and receive SMS
  • Place and receive phones calls

Its capabilities make it perfect for projects with Arduino like:

  • Remote control of electronic appliances – sending an SMS to turn something on;
  • Receive notifications – send SMS to your cell phone if movement is detected in your house;
  • Receive sensor data – send periodic SMS to your cell phone with daily weather data.
