switch off alarm reporting in vera and use the plugin to handle notifications. Pushover works great and support for free text messaging and emailing is on the way .

The plugin knows the difference between entry and alarm. If you open the front door the plugin will check to see the state the alarm is in and ONLY notify you if it goes into alarm. It should also send the zone names that tripped the alarm

Another pro to using pushover is that you can configure the plugin to send you separate notifications for when it is set/unset (single notification each time) and priority notifications upon alarm condition (repeats the notification with a different sound to set/unset notification until timeout/acknowledged)

Thanks Sam

Just looked.. In Vera 3 under Users & Account info >> notification settings, I have various options with Security Alerts being one of them and It's not been checked.. I just checked it.. hit update, then unchecked it and hit update again..

I'll let you know how I get on..
Thanks.

Ps with regards to pushover notifications I've also got a Tasker profile setup to read out loud (via TTS) any messages from pushover that contain the word "ALARM"

NEW VERSION now on GitHub:
  • support for email notiifications
  • support for text message notiifications (UK numbers only at the moment)
  • added system flag information (ability to act on system flags and notifications on system flags coming soon)
  • changed polling order to increase area response time

Sam

(system flags are things like battery fault, cabinet tamper, bell tamper, mains failure, comms active etc)

Im still getting the annoying emails from Vera, and the sms's plus the Vera app alerts... And now the pushover alerts everytime I come back home..

Any one got any pointers to what I should look at to stop Vera sending out there alerts... I've checked my scenes and I don't have anything there anymore that could be sending me the alerts.

Everytime I come home my phone goes mental..

from within the plugin you can turn off pushover for set/unset but still have alerts upon alarm activations only (still with circuit text)
As to the vera3 settings, they should be the same as me as its UI7:
login, then goto user&account info>notification settings and uncheck security alerts (and tamper alerts if you want) then click update
if you have the vera app, maybe there is a setting in there as well? (I dont use the vera app)
do you use pleg/vera alerts?

Sam

EDIT: just read your previous post which says you already unchecked those notifications sorry! maybe they are in app? also not sure how you are getting text messages from vera as mine never seemed to work and with a limit of 2 per day I didnt see the point tbh

I think I may have sorted it. Under Users & Accounts info > User Info, I have ticked "send me push notifications" and " send me emails". I've now taken this off.

Just loaded this one up.. Sam..you have been busy.
Menus flow so much better and GUI looks good.. the added colour is a nice touch too.

Great work.

Oh and yeah... Managed to stop VERA sending out the notifications... Pushover worked but it stoped a few days ago. Will get the paid version soon.

You mentiond you have a tasker profile for it.... Any chance you sharing that?  ;)

Thanks very much 😁

I've got 2 tasker profiles,
1 is just a speech synthesiser when pushover message contrasting word alarm is received (profile >event >plugin>pushover)

The other is a little icon on my android SmartWatch showing the set status of the alarm (will do export and email if youinterested)
