I just received my Core and am curious if it is possible to use a service such as Twillo to receive text message about triggered events. Does anybody have any experience with this?
There is an interesting project : https://community.spark.io/t/my-first-spark-project-door-buzzer/480
that uses Twilio + SMS to send commands to the Core to open up a door.
Thanks for sharing that. I am looking more for feedback being sent from the core via twillo. I will do some experimenting, but was hoping someone could tell me if its possible to do this all within the core.
@danlee6992 did you happen to look at this by any chance? (i asked similar question here https://community.spark.io/t/spark-controlled-safe-lockbox/2220/6 ). Using TCPClient to connect to Twilio API seems to be the way to go but unfortunately i dont have much (read any) experience in this area so if anyone has any hints where to start would be super useful .
I use http://www.prowlapp.com for iOS push messages.
Arduino: http://avvisoapp.com/ by Mike Colagrosso (wrapper of jProwlAPI)
or your use the prowlmail-Gateway, see http://www.prowlapp.com/prowlmail.php
thanks @frido - having a quick read through those look like a great place to start.
Thanks for sharing this! I’m excited to give this a try later.
Do you have working code to send a prowl notification using avvisoapp? I’m not quite understanding how to pull it off. I have working code that uses the prowl mail method, but I’m trying to shorten the time from send to receiving the notification. Seems like when I use Prowler to send a notification, it’s quicker than the email.
I only sent notifications to prowl via email… Sorry.
I’ll set to work trying to do it via a post method. High hopes it works a little quicker.
Were trying to get Google Scripts to send emails and text based on triggered events over in this thread if you want to join in. I want to get the email and text function working also. https://community.spark.io/t/example-logging-and-graphing-data-from-your-spark-core-using-google/2929/26
Thanks, I’ll check that out.
