This demonstration uses software located on the web server to store and display live data received via SMS from a device measuring temperature in Advanced Information Networks' Christchurch office.
Temperatures are logged and sent to the web using Advanced Information Networks' XE-8000 SMS Controller. The XE-8000 SMS Controller is a communications device that connects to a GSM modem to allow wireless remote and mobile Data Acquisition, Monitoring and Control via GSM Networks. The device can be configured from the web and log data back to a web based database.
Clickatell offers a bulk SMS Gateway with a selection of APIs allowing messages to be sent via HTTP, FTP, SMTP, XML and more.
Attitude can assist in integrating Clickatell with your PHP-based application.
