How do you change the SMS text message?
« on: July 24, 2018, 04:34:39 pm »
Is there a way to change/edit the SMS text message the vera sends? for example

(A door/window was closed Laundry_Room_Door in Laundry Room) VeraPlus 500xxxxx The Laundry_Room_Door in "Laundry Room" was closed at 2018-07-24 15:04:55

I'd like it to simply say..

Laundry_Room_Door in "Laundry Room" was closed at 07-24-2018 15:04:55

I'm not finding a solution in the docs or on here.

Which is why most folks switch to VeraAlerts. You can customize the message.  I have it pushing notifications to 2 phones using Pushover. Texts were a pain especially since each notification came from a different "number" and it was not usable at all.
