Boat monitoring using GPRS
sjoerd14 last edited by
I am considering a setup for monitoring several parameters on my boat:
- Battery voltage
- Shore power connection
- Temp (freezing)
- Bilge water alarm (level)
- propane Gas sensor
It should report any abnormalities using SMS/GPRS
Historic info would be nice, but not 1st prio
On this site I think I can find all wired/wireless sensors.
Now I am thinking about the main unit:
Vera + UMTS router + arduinoGW + Sensors ~ €230-260
=> "plug and play", requires 12 volt, when battery drops not enough power for Vera to send alarm.
Rpi + Python + UMTS stick + arduinoGW + Sensors ~ €
=> Own python development...
Rpi + Domoticz + UMTS stick + arduinoGW + Sensors ~ € 100 - 150
=> Is domoticz suitable for this?
Arduino + GSM shield + arduinoGW + Sensors ~€ 75 - 100
=> Monitoring from sketch to "home" Vera via GPRS?
Any suggestions or tips? Has anyone already such a setup?
Thanks in advance

If you need SMS/GPRS the following boards would be great,
Both also have the nrf24l01 adapter builtin for you MySensors network.
