TinyGSM travis-ci

A small Arduino library for GSM modules, that just works. Supported modules: SIMCom SIM800, SIM900, A6, A7, M590, ESP8266-AT (plus variants like A6C, SIM800A, SIM800C, SIM800L, SIM800H, SIM808, SIM868, SIM900A, SIM900D, SIM908, SIM968)

Arduino Client interface support

This library is easy to integrate with lots of sketches, which use Ethernet or WiFi.
Examples for PubSubClient (MQTT), Blynk, Web Client and File Download are provided.

examples

TinyGSM is tiny

The complete WebClient example for Arduino Uno (via Software Serial) takes little resources:

Sketch uses 14094 bytes (43%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 625 bytes (30%) of dynamic memory, leaving 1423 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.

Arduino GSM library uses 15868 bytes (49%) of Flash and 1113 bytes (54%) of RAM in a similar scenario.
TinyGSM also pulls data gently from the modem (whenever possible), so it can operate on very little RAM.
Now, you have more space for your experiments.

Supported modem models

  • [x] SIMCom SIM800 series (SIM800A, SIM800C, SIM800L, SIM800H, SIM808, SIM868)
  • [x] SIMCom SIM900 series (SIM900A, SIM900D, SIM908, SIM968)
  • [x] AI-Thinker A6, A6C, A7
  • [x] Neoway M590
  • [x] ESP8266 (AT commands interface, similar to GSM modems)

Supported modules

  • [x] GPRSbee
  • [x] Microduino GSM
  • [x] Adafruit FONA (Mini Cellular GSM Breakout)
  • [x] Adafruit FONA 800808 Shield

More modems may be supported later: - [ ] Quectel M10, M95, UG95 - [ ] SIMCom SIM5320, SIM5216 - [ ] Telit GL865 - [ ] ZTE MG2639

Watch this repo for new updates! And of course, contributions are welcome ;)

Getting Started

  1. Using your phone:
    • Disable PIN code on the SIM card
    • Check your ballance
    • Check that APN,User,Pass are correct and you have internet
  2. Ensure the SIM card is correctly inserted into the module
  3. Provide a good, stable power supply (up to 2A and specific voltage according to your module documentation)
  4. Check if serial connection is working (Hardware Serial is recommended)
    Send an AT command using this sketch
  5. Check if GSM antenna is attached

Troubleshooting

SoftwareSerial problems

When using SoftwareSerial (on Uno, Nano, etc), the speed 115200 may not work.
Try selecting 57600, 38400, or even lower - the one that works best for you.
Be sure to set correct TX/RX pins in the sketch.

Diagnostics sketch

Use this sketch to diagnose your SIM card and GPRS connection:
File -> Examples -> TynyGSM -> tools -> Diagnostics

Broken initial configuration

Sometimes (especially if you played with AT comands), your module configuration may become invalid.
This may result in problems such as:

  • Can’t connect to the GPRS network
  • Can’t connect to the server
  • Sent/recieved data contains invalid bytes
  • etc.

To return module to Factory Defaults, use this sketch:
File -> Examples -> TynyGSM -> tools -> FactoryReset
