SMS Alarms Mk2 - There's More.

Following my April 1st blogpost (no it wasn't an April Fools Joke), I've refined the design slightly so that you can alternatively tell when your bilge pump is running (if this is preferable to just knowing when your bilge alarm has been activated by water ingress). Some boats leak and the bilge pump starts and stops a lot - when you visit the boat, the pump has emptied the water so there doesn't appear to be a problem. All is fine - well until the pump burns out or the battery goes flat..

It will text you when the pump starts and text you again when it stops.

The free phone call feature can also be used to start your heating or switch your lights on. Another phone call turns them off. Sometimes easier than texting codes...
