RingyDingyDingy

Remote ring and lock
A lightweight remote ringer/locker that can be triggered by SMS messages or
Google Voice text messages. Additionally, it has an external API that
third-party apps can use to add new commands or new activation methods. Finally,
it is privacy concious, never uploads any data, and uses the bare minimum
permissions required to do its job.
