I express my sincere thanks to all forum members for there great support

7805 labels are reversed, I will clear it.
at board 3 there should be 4.7K replaced with 470 Ohm and a 1K preceding all LED s.

I'll look at yours, if you look at mine.

You have a very interesting way of routing traces. It looks like something out of Mad Max.

Can you plug this into a standard modem to receive the DTMF tones? That would make PC based software pretty easy. You could send standard 'AT' commands to the modem to control the units.

Thanks...

Yes, it can make your life easier.

To send "4105551234" to your device, just plug the device into the modems phone jack and send
ATD4105551234 to the com port that the modem is on.

Also, If you needed to press 1 to select a device then 2 to turn it on, you can use 'P' or a comma to send pauses in the dialing command.

For instance, if '1' selects the livingroom light, then '1' again turns it on or '2' turns it off:

ATD 1,2

Will send the DTMF code for '1' selecting the light then the comma will pause for a second then send the '2' to turn the light off.


And it is quite simple. There are also codes for length of time the tone is sent and the amount of time of tones.

For instance, ATS11=50 sets the register for the amount of time of tones to 50ms. If your device needs more time to recognize tones, you simply send the ATS11 command with the number in milliseconds that you need the tones.

Here is a list of the AT commands:

And here is a list of the registers. See S11 like ATS11 is the register for DTMF tone duration
