Receiving a SMS Text message on Electron to trigger a pin

I’ve got a project in mind where I’m looking to learn if an Electron can receive a SMS Text message to trigger a pin on the electron? I’d like to be able to send a text message to my electron (over cellular and not WiFi) and trigger the pins on the Electron to flash an LED.

Consider it a secure, remote control of the electron.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. This could become a commercial product and I’d be happy to partner with anyone whom is interested in helping.

Totally doable with a 3rd party SIM card since you can’t send SMS messages directly to the Election using the Particle SIM unless you use a 3rd party service like Twillio.

Search the form for Electron and SMS for help.


Thanks RWB :slight_smile:
