  • A list of topics to explore
    • Arduino and wireless: figure out what kind of hardware is required for an Arduino to access a Wifi network and interact with a PC. XBee and Shield should be terms that should pop in the search results. See what solutions are available, and how much they cost.
    • Arduino and email. See if you find solutions published on the Web illustrating how one could send email from an Arduino. Some solutions assume that the arduino is connected to a PC. We don't want this solution. Wireless is what you are after.
    • How to send sms messages from a PC. Look up solutions where people send sms messages from their PC. Once you know how to do that, and once you know how to access a PC from an Arduino, it shouldn't be too hard to make the Arduino send an sms.
