Right but there must be a smartapp within SmartThings that’s sending the alerts, I mean. Within SmartThings you can’t send to multiple SMS #s unless you use a custom smartapp.
I don’t have any android phones but android apps like tasker and sharptools probably give you a lot of options about how to receive alerts. Maybe that’ll allow you to propagate an SMS alert to your wife’s phone too.
Hey. Just wanted to let you know. I was in a smart app for my door lock messing with notifications and found the following. Going to try it with the alarm notification and see if it works. I’ll report back this evening.
That’s great. Not completely familiar with all the apps available for locks created by the community vs. officially published in the ST marketplace, since I don’t have a smart lock myself. But is that a community-developed smartapp?
That’s the nice thing about smartapps and device handlers created by community developers; they can add much needed functions to the built-in ST mobile app experience. But the downside is you have to know where to look, how to install, can be more complicated to troubleshoot, etc.
Also keep in mind, if I’m understanding you correctly. You’ll receive an SMS notification to multiple #s from that smartapp, but that may only be based on events sent by a smart lock. If your door opens in the middle of the night or when you’re not home and there’s no smart lock on that door, that smartapp probably won’t help. Again, it depends on what kinds of events that smartapp is able to detect and send notifications for.
No. My point is, if the function is something available in smart things, the fact that it can be done in this app most likely means it will work in the security system as well. Will be trying it when I get home.
A function that is available in one smartapp is not necessarily available in another.
Try it out and let us know.
Also, I’m still unsure that we’re understanding each other re: the difference between officially published smartapps that you can tap to install from the marketplace tab in the ST mobile app, and community developed code that you must add by logging into the Integrated Development Environment from a web browser. Here is an FAQ post about custom code.
Of course this is the case. But the fact that the smart app can do it means its at least doable within ST and thus should be tested. Of course I know the difference between custom code and code built by Samsung. Thanks. Ill report back this evening on if this works or not.
I know this is old. In smart apps just add a new notify me when with the second number. For example, add smart app “notify me when”. When siren triggers text “husband”. Go back to smart apps and add smart app “notify me when”. When siren triggers text “wife”. Hope this helps even though im 2 years late.
