Through technology developed with our partners, phones designed for Fi intelligently switch between multiple mobile networks from T-mobile and U.S Cellular, as well as secure Wi-Fi connections. This means you get access to more cell towers and 4G LTE* in more places. If your phone designed for Fi is 5G-compatible or you bring your own unlocked phone compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, you'll have access to 5G nationwide on Fi. Phones that aren't designed for Fi are covered by T-Mobile.
In this guide I show how to build an electronic security lock for package delivery, securing physical documents, or granting access to a secret lab. This project uses AWS Serverless to create a touchscreen keypad lock that uses SMS to alert a recipient with a custom message and unlock code. Files are included for the lockbox shown, but the system can be installed in anything with a door.
Entering the correct unlock code from the SMS message calls the unlock function. The unlock function closes the relay circuit to open the solenoid lock. It plays a beep sound and then calls the updateState function, which makes a POST request to the API Gateway endpoint for the UpdateState Lambda function.
If the serial device sends text back, you can pipe port.readable through a TextDecoderStream as shown below. A TextDecoderStream is a transform stream that grabs all Uint8Array chunks and converts them to strings.
Closing a serial port is more complicated when using transform streams (like TextDecoderStream and TextEncoderStream). Call reader.cancel() as before. Then call writer.close() and port.close(). This propagates errors through the transform streams to the underlying serial port. Because error propagation doesn't happen immediately, you need to use the readableStreamClosed and writableStreamClosed promises created earlier to detect when port.readable and port.writable have been unlocked. Cancelling the reader causes the stream to be aborted; this is why you must catch and ignore the resulting error.
To deal with this, you can use some built-in transform streams such as TextDecoderStream or create your own transform stream which allows you to parse the incoming stream and return parsed data. The transform stream sits between the serial device and the read loop that is consuming the stream. It can apply an arbitrary transform before the data is consumed. Think of it like an assembly line: as a widget comes down the line, each step in the line modifies the widget, so that by the time it gets to its final destination, it's a fully functioning widget.
To use the transform stream class, you need to pipe an incoming stream through it. In the third code example under Read from a serial port, the original input stream was only piped through a TextDecoderStream, so we need to call pipeThrough() to pipe it through our new LineBreakTransformer. 2b1af7f3a8
