Church bell app?

The idea was to be able to start the bell at specific times, perhaps for specific intervals. Certainly an off the shelf electronic timer could do that job.


Not as much fun though. In a project I did a couple of years ago in the middle east, an event had to be executed for the five prayer times each day. Or rather a process had to be stopped for those times. These varied at different times of the year, since dawn did not seem to be a constant. Try that with a simple timer.


Overkill for the sheer fun of it is a matter of style. Perhaps the OP will give more specifics as to the requirements, to see if an old laptop and LC with an interface gadget or a $50 timer is appropriate.

Hi there,

The idea that the church bell needs an app is total overkill.

Get a simple Radioshack or Home Depot wireless doorbell
type device and hook up the output to a relay that turns on
the amplifier and the bell tone.  (Many times the relay is included,
because that’s how it works!)  Even “The Clapper” might be
a cheap solution for this at $20.

Also look at the http://www.insteon.com

There is no way this project should be $6,000 or more.
Someone is gouging you with that pricey solution.

I’ve done things like this all the time.  It’s easy, and you
don’t need an app for it.

Just my 2 cents.

Rick
