Project Idea: Car Protector

Another idea I had - re-use an old Nokia phone to send me an SMS if someone knocks or tries to break into my car.

The Nokia phones are perfectly fine and the older ones sip power. They just don't have 'apps'.

Connect an Arduino to the phone either via Bluetooth (for the newer models) or serial (using an Fbus/Pop-Port cable), giving the Arduino access to the wider world.

If there is some movement detected in the car, send an SMS to me via the phone. Additionally, also activate the dash cam I've already installed.
