Default app to control car via sms or bluetooth

I'm New at making apps.....Imagine you walk to your car and doors open automatically/car starts/Windows roll down/up all via sms! i have a Small device already wired in to my car that does all this via sms commands. also if your alarm goes off you will get a sms! The device also supports commands via bluetooth which does the same things like sms commands but you have to be near the car..I would like to know a few things. 1.(Bluetooth)Could i built app that automatically connects to my car via Bluetooth and send commands with out any user imput(i would just sync 1 time and tell the the app what to trigger when i come with in range ie. open doors,start car) 2.((SMS)A simple app with a few icons like a door/engine/locks/windows..so it would work like this...i open the app i press the "door" icon and the phone in the background send a sms to trigger that command with out me having to do it manually. Please let me know if its even possible FYI i have a G1 and a G2

Hi, I was going to work on something just like this. you said you have a small device already wired to the car so it is controlled via sms? what have you created? I think you have taken my thought to the next level with some of the additional features you have pointed out. I have some friends that can most likely help with app development. I am very interested in finding out what you have already in place and improving exponentially on that. look forward to your response

Default Locale SMS-plugin

Check out Locale, it basically does thing according to your location. it's the product of a MIT class project.

It has a plugin called Locale SMS-plugin which sends sms messages based on your location. Using GPS, WIFI and Network you could probably get a pretty accurate location. Obviously not completely optimal but a start.

What hardware do you have that lets you send SMS to your car?

Arduino - HomePage

Somehow put a bluetooth device on the board and have it scan every 5 seconds for a specific device name/mac address. Once it detects the phone, it can unlock the car.

A simple design would be to plug the ardruino into a wireless keychain and have it press the buttons.
