Alarm Status to SMS via Twilio

Postby n5qm » Wed Jan 29, 2014 11:29 am

All,

Here is a script which monitors for alarm system events and dispatches text messages via the Twilio API. This can be expanded to cover more alarm events to suit your needs or to even send voice based alerts in place of text messages.

If you have any comments or questions...

Just a note: our AlarmDecoder WebApp supports Twilio natively for event notifications now. This is still useful as a standalone, however.

As soon as I get my Alarmdecoder webapp working again, I will send it to my SMS via email. For example, in Verizon you can put (your mobile phone number)@vtext.com and it should give the same result.

The cool part about Twilio is it comes from an actual phone number - so you can group your conversations.

Twilio is also supported natively by the webapp.

I get notifications now to my SMS the way described above by sending it to xxxx@vtxt.com for Verizon..

If anything comes from that number, I have it play a specified alert.
