I am still working on making my notification system bigger, and now looking for ways to communicate with more programs and devices.
So far my site can send messages to
- Prowl (to iPhone)
- Notifo (to Android and iPhone)
- Notify.io (to Growl on Mac and Windows)
And it is all done by calling a simple url, and done that way so it easily can be used with an arduino with access to the internet.
But are you using any other notification service that could be interesting to have in it too?
The system itself is very easy to use (well, it always is for the creator of a thing
), because all you do is to log in, and create notification profiles.
You can have multiple profiles, and you only fill out the fields you want to get notification from. So if you create a profile called ex "Desktop" and only fill in the notify.io MD5 from their site, and then create a notification and select that profile, it will send a message to the address that matches the MD5 on the notify.io site.
For each notice you can select multiple profiles. Like that you can create a profile for each option you got for receiving a message, but in the notifications you individually decide which sends to what.
Pictures of it will come soon, but I am reworking the entire section where you create notifications to make it easier.
And hopefully the site will launch within a week. And it will of curse be free to use.
And hopefully you will be ready to take communication with your arduino projects to the next level
Future ideas is to also be able to send a message back to the system again, and that way also send messages directly from your phone (notify only) back to your arduino.
Burglar alarm anyone? Get a message about it has started, then send a message back to tell the arduino to close the motorized gate...
