Samsung Galaxy Tag trigger phone to send SMS

Has anyone figured out how to get the galaxy tags to make your phone send a SMS? There’s an option to send notifications in SmartThings but that’s completely useless and the SmartThings sms service is US only. I just want it to make my phone send a standard pre filled SMS to a set contact.

Well I figured it out on my own in the end. I was able create and IFTTT applet to send a SMS to a set number when I press or hold the button on my smarttag+. I had to create a couple of virtual switches to be turned on by my smarttag+ as per this guide from Aeotec, which then runs the applet through IFTTT.
