Alerts to multiple Android devices
« on: August 08, 2014, 04:44:34 am »
I want to send Vera Alert messages to a few Android devices. How do I get them all to receive the same messages ?
Do I copy the VeraAlertsID from my Vera Alerts device on to each Android tablet which I want to receive the messages ?

There are several ways to do it:
1. Create profiles for each device to receive alerts. In "Settings" you can then "tick" the ones you want to receive the messages
2. Install "Pushover" on each device and create a single Vera Alert profile for for Pushover.
3. Sign up for Twilio and send SMS to the ones you want.

Lots of options. I use all of them one way or the other for different kind of messages. For example I send SMS to notify everyone in the family that the Alarm system is ARMED and what mode its armed in so if they are out they will know what to do when they come home. I send various other alerts for things like sensor battery levels but only to SysLog and to me. So its really quite flexible.

Easiest way for me is to buy another license for Vera Alerts which I just have done. I previously had one license, now I have 2. But it does not show in the register tab in Vera Alerts, that still says 1 license 2 profiles.
