  1. Hey scott. Remember how you censored the location that the arduino printed out? And how you later showed the google maps coordinates on screen?
    I think u should change it . .

  2. Im trying to put together a circuit alarm system for my schwinn pathway bike but i have some little problems gathering the parts and with my limited knowledge any help? Thankyou i love your vids i never miss a video keep up the good work👍👍

  3. In the car-alarms they solder the piezo vertically, perpendicular to the PCB and they solder a spring on the top with screw in it to adjust the sensitivity …

  4. Sir your work is amazing,
    And i need your help i have recently lost my mobile i very sad for my this great loss.But now i get a new mobile and i want to make my own gps tracker(device) which can able to attach my mobile's back panel so i need ur help .

  5. U r beutiful boy but you did not need a op amp, only a few transistors + sensitivity pot and use a electret microphone instead?

  6. You could get so much more life out of it if you had the motion sensor activate a flip flop that controlled the arduino's voltage. Then the Arduino could "sleep" by turning the flip flop off and deactivating itself. That way there's no 3.5 mAh usage, it's just 0. 60 days is a rather annoying interval to replace batteries.

  7. If you log into the Gmail you created for testing and enable insecure devices, I bet your email notifications would start working. Great video!

  8. Hi awesome video, Would you kindly show us how to use a barebones quectel l76-l gps chip with arduino so that the tracker is small?

  9. Hello great scot is the a company that can help build a small pass lock tracking bracelet, or a clip tracking bracelet

  10. How about the simcard's load?, I mean, how is it going to text you? so u gonna load it every 2 days?

  11. #define FONA_RST 4

    Adafruit_FONA_3G fona = Adafruit_FONA_3G(FONA_RST);

    How to connect pin 4 to the "RST" of Arduino Pro Mini MCU board?
    Just connect a wire to the "RST" with pin 4. am I right?

    When I manually reset button, the voltage drop from "RST" at 3.3 V to 0 volts. I specified the receiver mobile no. No message is received yet. For British Hong Kong I used "+852xxxxxxx".

  12. To fix the server error for sending an email you must enable “less secure apps” access to the sending gmail account in the security setting of your google profile.

  13. Two things:
    1 put more air in your tires
    2 after the device is tripped the code should compare GPS values to see if the bike has been moved to avoid false alarms. A large trash truck, fast car whizzing by or someone bumping the bike would all be issues.
    Nice video nonetheless.

  14. If you can produce one smaller for a bike to be put into the frame you have my money. I was planning to build it myself but I wasn't able to find the correct size components (especially the GPS antenna).

  15. I understand this design except the part of using an old cell phone's SIM card. That old SIM card is programmed to an old number that no longer is activated by the old cell carrier. Can anyone explain how this works?

  16. Could you try making one of these for a regular bicycle that uses a app like google's find my device app to find the bike?

  17. 3:57 this server error is causer by a gmail setting which blocks insecure smtp requests. You can search it and disable it.

  18. I would really love to see how you create a gsm or gps connector from scratch. Maybe you can do a whole series about that.

  19. Hi GreatScott! Not sure if you are still keen but I managed to do a HTTP Post to dashboard using 3G for the SIM5320E module. So 3G should be fine.

  20. HOW COME no battery (back-up). They are essential in these days of sophisticated thieves. ALSO a shiny, new case is a give away – my tracker is in a welded metal box, that gets covered with dirt. And the cables are identical to the machine cables so they look like original equipment.

  21. GreatScott I got gps tracker for my motorcycle only problem is that it connects to the motorcycle battery so the thieve can simply disconnect the battery and that’s it… how could I build some battery for gps that charges when engine is running and when is off and battery is disconnected gps can still work with it’s hidden battery. I was thinking Of connecting it to jump starter and jump starter to usb charger but I don’t think that’s the right way, help please

  22. No actually I want to put this on someone and find out where they live, then burn their house down while they sleep

  23. Love your videos bro, However your Instructions arent too clear on every step. I have purchased every thing needed to replicate this build however you are skipping over a few things (probably for time) think you can help me out by breaking down each step? We can email if you would like! Thanks!

  24. Why my sim5320 easy restarting? Especially when posting data to server, ?
    I supply sim5320 with lm2596 +5v, I think no problem with power supply

  25. Have you got any idea why I receive: "+CGPSINFO:,,,,,,,,
    "? I have GPS antenna.. I didn't find any guide. Now, I use microUSB to programm wwith ATcommands.

  26. This is a great project and the battery life is good. What disturbs me though is the cost – I can buy a "smart" phone for £10 – granted it won't have the 60 day life or the shock sensor (well there is one built in, but I don't know enough to code a something to take advantage of that), but I could wire it up and have all the same features – plus the ability to make emergency calls if required…

  27. Hi Bro,
    Thanks for making so many knowledgeable videos.
    Especially you share a lot of technical lessons.

    Kindly make video about
    What to choose GPS or GPRS module for IoT project,
    Also make video implementing MQTT using GPS or GPRS.

    Thanks..

  28. Is it possible to make a GPS to go from point a to point b? I live 10 miles away from my cousin and want to send him my drone but it would be awesome if I could program it to land in his garden then for him to send it back. Just curiouse if its possible

  29. I built one of those in 1995, long before anyone else had done it! I used a PIC 16F877. It had various modes & could handle secondary tracking by a control room & also allow immobilization of the vehicle being tracked by the chase team. There were quite a number of additional features. I tried to sell it but nobody understood what I had designed! Secondly, the cost of the components was high back then! Much simpler to do now with arduino & cheap gps units. Whole thing can be built cheaply now!

  30. I’m a bit late, but why don’t you get one of those DigiKey IOT phone plans. They are dirt cheap (like $3/month) and 5 cents/sms?

  31. the smtp of google or hotmail always are a trouble for me. try using a third party smtp server, i usually use the corporate email server for those scenarios, its a basic smtp server with the option to chose if you want to work with ssl or not, other reference point its test that with the outlook app of microsoft office and set the account as a pop3 email.
    Very good youtube videos, i always stay creative… jeje

  32. Hi Scott !
    For improve the rapidity for get GPS location you can use QuecLocator or similar… the localisation will be get with phone RF network.
    In this system, you don't have an AT command for enter the module into sleep mode ?

  33. As this system doesn't have arm/disarm switch, it means you get SMS every time turning ignition on and riding bike yourself (false positive)?

  34. Hi, Scott…
    Thank for this video, it was really helpful.
    I like your explanation simple and complete.
    Kindly make video on GSM and GPRS modules, which module is more suitable for IoT (MQTT)
    projects. This is really confusing which module are available and which is good for IoT
