I would like to know if there is a way we can get vera to contact us by phone in any way when a sensor it tripped.  Has this been done?

 ???

Yes, it's been done. Search the forum for "Prowl" for one solution.

I have mine alert when my alarm is tripped (armed door sensors etc).

There is a plugin in Vera for Pushover, which works perfect on iOS. I also have mine send an email to my Zapier account and have some triggers in there for calling my phone / sending me a text.

They have a free plan.

Veraalert works very well with prowl must configure the plugin and forward through push notification
see my config Photo

by cons I can not pass a patch event malgr?s Richard
and push notification developer has no idea therefore for messages not worry about the more complicated event and this is a shame because after the name of the event I run a url prowl
if you need more information do I sign

Please send me a Prowl Notification using LUA and I will tell you how to do this with Vera Alert Forwarding ... I do not know the details of the Prowl plugin. But if you have an example ... I can translate to Vera Alerts forwarding syntax.

very Thanks Richard

this an an exemple of notification with prowl is

local url = require("socket.url")
local when = url.escape(os.date())

luup.inet.wget("https://prowl.weks.net/publicapi/add?apikey=MY_APIKEY&application=Garage&event=Ouvert&description=Attention+le+Garage+de+Delphine+s'ouvre+" .. when .. "&priority=1")
