send commands by sms

Hey people,

I'm new here and want to make a prototype with arduino parts. I want to make a circuit controlled by cellphone. For instance: i sms: "Start" and it will make a output pin high when i sms "stop" it will make the outpin low.

i'm wondering if this is possible and if it is, what parts do i need? -which andruino board? -which shield do i need to add to recieve SMS and read out the characters?

can anyone help me to get in the right direction?

ok thanks, which board do you recommend to start with?

I recommend you use an Arduino Uno first. It would be more than enough for your program. :)

tried a program like that 2 days ago. :)
