The Velleman MMK160 Remote Control Via GSM Mobile Phone board is supplied assembled and ready to use. This useful little board will enable you to turn equipment ON and OFF from any location with mobile phone coverage.
The MMK160 light sensor is placed next to a mobile phone screen as shown in the image. The MMK160 activates when the phones backlight illuminates in response to an incoming call (so you will not even incur any call charges to operate the device provided you hang-up in time).
Since the MMK160 is really just a light activated switch, it should be placed with the mobile phone in a dark location or lightproof enclosure for reliable operation. The phone settings should be adjusted so the backlight only comes on in response to an incoming call.
The relay can be set to operate in either timer auto-off mode (0.5Sec - 1 Hour) or toggle ON/OFF mode (call twice to turn on, call again to turn off).
NB Mobile phone NOT supplied.
