Hi

Thinking of purchasing a GSM Commander for my tank, it will be able to control most functions of the system.

SMS Controller: GSM Commander - The best SMS Controller in the world

I would purchase the unit along with 2 expansion mods, this will provide me with a total of 12 outputs, 12 digi inputs, 2 Temp inputs and 1 analog (0-10V) input, however you can increase it to a total of 6 expansion unit, providing up to 32 input and 32 outputs.

As its basically a logic controller you can make it do pretty much anything, plus you have the function of GSM, meaning SMS.

It can receive SMS's to do certain actions, as well as send you sms's of what happening on the tank, eg. overheating etc.

I would probably setup the analong input to read from a pH probe, which can control a CaRX, as well as sms you the reading at will.

Do you think its worth the money?
