PC control with SMS commands

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me out here, seeing as how I don't have a clue where to start. Simply put, I want to control my PC through SMS text messages. I would be able to shutdown, restart, log off, run a program, ect. by sending a text. I planned on being able to send a text message to a Gmail account and having autoit check the body of the message for the command, however it seems that there's a lot of issues with logging into gmail with autoit. Does anyone have an idea of how to do this?

Well, I actually expected to enable pop3 and have it downloaded to a client, since not only would it be simpler, but also the script wont be based online. That way, you dont have to check the messages as soon as the SMS sends, the email is downloaded to the computer and then the body can be scanned for the keywords.

Edit:

Actually, my phone has mobile AIM, so the commands possibly could be done through that too. That actually may be a simpler solution

Nice, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I'm going to try it out and see if it can load an autoit program as a command, and if that is possible, this will work perfectly.

Is your modem a local usb or serial device, or is it online?

do you have the AT command scripts to setup/operate the GSM SMS?

I think hes just using your standard internet connected PC.

To me, it seems like AIM would be the easiest solution, that way you could have your computer report back to your phone whether or not it received the command without having to involve email.
