linux sms server

Post by Snelvuur »

http://wiki.binkey.nl/SMSD

i have created a first draft on how to make the sms server with linux and a mobile phone. If there are any problems with it or whatever you know what to do (i think)

I'll be making an interface for incoming smses in due time, which will also interact with xpl-perl. Should not take too much time.

An alternative could be to use the SMS on fixed line service. If you still have a regular PSTN telephone line (with number display) and a Fritz!box it can be done completely in software. That software would register as a SIP client with the Fritz!box. Then when a call comes in from the PSTN SMS center, it answers the call and starts exchanging FSK messages with the SMS center. Works for me.

Or use something like mollie as an sms gateway. I guess the costs will be higher using mollie though.

Actually, sending SMS's appears to be cheaper with mollie. However I'm mainly using this for receiving SMS's, so I can control things in my house when I'm away by sending an SMS from my mobile phone to my fixed line.

By the way, does someone know if mollie puts restrictions on the source address when sending an SMS through their API? At the moment I accept any command if it comes from a limited set of originating numbers. But if there are easy ways to fake the originator I will have to make security more complicated, at least for some of the more sensitive commands. I would expect mollie guards against such abuse, but I couldn't find anything about it on their web site.

i switched to the other side (homeseer) since its windows, i also changed my bluetooth stack. I have a high power bluetooth receiver (which works under windows, i believe no linux support) and it connects to my mobile phone over bluetooth. This still makes a connection to my linux box over myodbc connectino from windows. So i can still insert mysql lines and it will send it towards the phone, visa versa same deal. I've also hooked it up with a plugin from homeseer which detects pretty good the presence of my gf and my phone. Good for a indication if somebody is home or not.

then you have a complete sms server with a webinterface. Smsserver tools also have a "eventhandler" , that means that when you receive an sms the eventhandler start an script, application with the sms information as an argument.
Its realy easy to make some fun automation with it.

If you use IOS on your phone you can use the free "Prowl" service to instantly push messages to your phone, there are several classes available (PERL, PHP, C#) I use this also (I wrote my only my own PHP class) for sending myself updates and captures of the frontdoor camera when someone rings. Works really nice and it's free!!!

For android there is something else (Same as prowl);
