SMS notification

Mon May 31, 2010 2:15 pm

Hi all!

My mobile carrier don´t have a email->sms gateway and I need to send sms notification for some mobile phones when some services is down.

How can I do it? Can I connect a mobile phone to the RB to send SMS message? Is this possible?

Regards,
Fabrício

I have not setup SMS notification but a week ago someone posted that they wrote a VB script to tell their modem to send SMS notifications from the Dude, I asked him to post the script but he didn't. You will find that there are programs to do this. I remember seeing an SMS program that let you put a usb connection to a cell phone to send SMS. Check Source Forge...

I have not needed to do SMS but I have been watching you should be able to get it working.

Here is a search for SMS and Execute... since you will need to execute an external.

Here is how to setup SMS.
1. Attach your SMS modem to the computer. Verify it operates with a terminal program.
2. Find a program that can control your modem from a command line (There is no SMS modem control built into the dude. RB?)
3. Create an external that runs your modem program. This will accept the "outage message" and send it through the modem.
4. Create a new "notification" that calls your external and verify that it works. (enable the sms notification; globally, per map or per device)

Hi,

Sorry, I didn't get the request to post the source code for my SMS Sender, so I will try and do this.

Look out for a new thread.

Can someone tell me if there is chance to use some programming language for creating SMS sending scripts that will run on RouterBoard ?
