  1. Good Morning,
    I would like to make a raspberry pi setup for an alarm which when a input is triggered it makes a number of phone calls out on GSM 4G/LTE to inform of the input. Not sure what raspberry pi hat is the best choice for this project. Can you please advice.
    Thank You,
    Best Regards,
