The Purpose of This library is to use the module in the most easy way and transparent.
Website: Sim800l library

Download and Install.

Go to Releases click the " Source Code (zip) " button, then rename the uncompressed folder to Sim800l. Check that the Sim800l folder contains Sim800l.cpp and Sim800l.h

Go to arduino IDE Sketch >> Import Library >> add library... Select the folder Sim800l


Place the Sim800l library folder your arduinosketchfolder/libraries/ folder. You may need to create the libraries subfolder if its your first library. Restart the IDE.

Connections & pinouts
