I am looking the setup a function where a single button push would trigger an iPhone to send an SMS and am considering an Arduino based solution. In essence, I'm looking to build a bluetooth smart button(s), similar to flic but without the hefty price tag. Options I'm considering include:
- simple cheap OTS bluetooth button and iPhone software which does the work (doesn't seem to exist for iPhone)
- Arduino with bluetooth module which implements MAP (message access profile) over bluetooth - MAP could be challenging
- some other solution I haven't come across (maybe wifi instead of bluetooth)
- Cough up and buy a flic
Any thoughts or experience from the community out there?
