I’d like to have a song play or recording on my phone play if a motion sensor downstairs is tripped. I see apps for playing songs on Sonos and I think even iTunes on a Mac. How about one that just plays a song or specified sound on the mobile device itself? I’m not sure a push notification would wake me up and I’m not really looking to install a siren.
Sorry if I’m missing something. Brand new to this!
This app requires you to setup a rule in gmail that will forward specific emails to another address (@mailtones.net). You then setup a custom tone in mailtones and you’ll get a custom alert. Note: IFTTT can have up to a 15 minute delay.
You could also try to use an application called growl.
and its companion prowl:
But I am not sure you can customize the alerts in prowl.
Yes. HAM Bridge can fire off an AppleScript to send an email, text, or even a push notification. Since I am on Android, I can pretty much do anything based on the content of a notification using Tasker. iOS users will of course need an app that can do what they want base on incoming emails, texts, or notifications.
Ok. I got this to work
Use HAM Bridge and
Add the motion/no motion app to smart things (found on the HAM Bridge site)
