  3. Re: Migrating a monitored alarm from copper to GSM.

    Hi David,
    I think that even 3G is on the list in the not too distant future here in Oz. But I'm no expert, I thought when you mentioned GSM that meant 2G.
    David, I noticed you have only 9 posts....

    Barking dog

    A friend is having trouble with almost non stop barking from a neighbour's dog.
    He is building a piece of hardware including a micro programmed to respond to a barking sequence and produce a loud...
  5. Re: Migrating a monitored alarm from copper to GSM.

    David, GSM is being de-activated in Australia to make room for 5G. It's already gone in a neighbouring town.
    This may explain why modules are becoming cheap as countries are progressively shutting...

    I don't know how they are made but is there an opportunity with the scan sensors out of a printer/scanner. I'm picturing a row of photodetectors with a light through the tube? Maybe that's not how...

    Re: Suggestions for pic microcontroller

    If you buy them from Microchip Direct they are dirt cheap but freight is a killer if you only buy a small number.
    There is also a chip select facility on the site to help you make your choice.

    Hello again Yves,
    I'm on a roll with a quiet Boxing Day holiday.
    Here's how you could do it using a table.
    I couldn't get Cread32 to work, may be a problem with it but Cread worked OK.

    If you want I could produce it for you. Delphi can generate very...

    Memory bit wobbly nowadays but I think Les said "end" is redundant. As George said, the compiler knows when to stop.
