    Most SMS Modems can be plugged into a PC, but you need the radio and the service to broadcast out

    Dear GremlinSA Sir,
    I have installed an electronic Fair Alarm System and an Electronic House Security System at my house. Both units are provided with an individual electromagnetic relay change over contact for controlling hooter or any other gadgets for safety.

    I want to use the change over contact of electro magnetic relay to interface my computer with parallel port to generate an automatic SMS from my computer to my mobile phone.

    For this propose, I have already developed a VB6 program as given following and working OK. I am using windows xp as OS with driver file inpout32.dll to be copied in C:\Windows\System32\Inpout32.dll & VB6 as programming language

    But I am unable to generate an automatic SMS from my PC to my mobile phone. Kindly help me or modify my program as given following so that I can send an event SMS automatically. This project will also help to other forum members as it is not available on the net.

    PROGRAM CODE
    *************
    (1) Module1.bas
    ---------------------

    Start

    '// INPUT
    '//******
    Public Declare Function Inp Lib "inpout32.dll" Alias "Inp32" _
    (ByVal address As Integer) _
    As Integer
    '
    '// OUTPUT
    '//*******
    Public Declare Sub Out Lib "inpout32.dll" Alias "Out32" _
    (ByVal address As Integer, _
    ByVal Value As Integer)
    '//
    ----------------------------------- End Module .bas -------------------------

    (2) Form1.frm
    -----------------
    Start

    Dim AEPPort As Integer
    Dim AEPData As Integer
    Dim pat
    '
    Sub AEPOut(Data As Integer)
    Out AEPPort, AEPData
    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    'INPUT PORT
    AEPPort = &H379
    Label1.Caption = Inp(AEPPort)
    Portinput = Label1.Caption
    Code = Portinput - 7
    Label2.Caption = Code
    If Code = 120 Then GoTo SMS else goto QSMS
    SMS:
    Label3.Caption = "Fire In the House Send SMS"

    QSMS:
    Label3.Caption = "SMS not send"
    End Sub
    ------------------------------------- End ------------------------------------

    Thanking you

    With kind regards

    A modem or SMS terminal is the logical choice, as Gremlin has stated and linked you up.
    But I want to mention that another way of sending SMS with VB6 is, to use an internet service. VB6 can be set up easily to send emails.
    There are web services which will transfer incoming email to an SMS and send them to the receipient. This avoids buying an SMS terminal, but you have to pay for the service, too.

    You can get a Google Phone Number, and have it forward to ANY number. Now, you just have to send an email to it to get a SMS to your phone.

    Just remember that VB6 is now over to 16 years old, and one day MS will drop support for it in the OS..
