    Example: Send instant messages to iOS and Android devices from Wiser event

    An app called Pushover, available for iOS, Android and desktop clients allows the sending of alerts from the Wiser.

    Before using the example below, please register on the Pushover website to get user ID and Application API Token and insert them into even-based script instead of userkey.

    There is a free trial for 7 day, the a AU7.99 one off fee after that.



    Add the following program in User Libraries

    1. require 'ssl.https'
    2. local pushover_url = 'https://api.pushover.net/1/messages.json'
    3. local token = 'PUT YOUR APPLICATION TOKEN HERE' -- Your application token, at least 1 app must be created at pushover.net to get the application token
    4. local user = 'PUT YOUR USER TOKEN HERE' -- Your user token, retrieve from settings inside pushover application for android or ios
    5. function pushover(title, message, sound, priority, device, url, url_title, retry, expire)
    6. if priority < -2 then priority = -2 end
    7. if priority > 2 then priority = 2 end
    8. if retry < 30 then retry = 30 end
    9. if retry > 86400 then retry = 86400 end
    10. if expire < retry then expire = retry end
    11. if expire > 86400 then expire = 86400 end
    12. if priority == 2 then prioritystring = ''.. priority .. '&retry=' .. retry .. '&expire=' .. expire ..'' else prioritystring = priority end
    13. now = os.date('*t')
    14. timestamp = string.format('%02d', now.day) .. '-' .. string.format('%02d', now.month) .. '-' .. now.year .. ' ' .. string.format('%02d', now.hour) .. ':' .. string.format('%02d', now.min) .. ':' .. string.format('%02d', now.sec)
    15. local data_str = 'user=' .. user .. '&message=' .. message .. ' ' .. timestamp .. '&token=' .. token .. '&title=' .. title .. '&sound=' .. sound .. '&device=' .. device .. '&url=' .. url .. '&url_title=' .. url_title .. '&priority=' .. prioritystring .. ''
    16. local res, code, headers, status = ssl.https.request(pushover_url, data_str)
    17. end


    Event-based script

    Add the following script which will send pushover notification with sound


    1. require("user.pushover")
    2. --Set title for message
    3. title = 'CTC WISER'
    4. --Set message to be send (current time and date will be added automaticly)
    5. message = 'A button has been presses'
    6. --Set sound to be played on device
    7. --pushover(default), bike, bugle, cashregister, classical, cosmic, falling, gamelan, incoming, intermission, magic, mechanical, pianobar, siren, spacealarm, tugboat, alien, climb, persistent, echo, updown, none
    8. sound = 'persistent'
    9. --Set priority (-2 = no notification only badge and message in app, -1 = notification without sound or vibration, 0 = default, 1 = bypass user quiet hours (set in App not iOS), 2 = bypass user quiet hours (set in App not iOS) + acknowledge required
    10. priority = 1
    11. --Set the device name to send the message directly to that device, rather than all of the devices (multiple devices may be separated by a comma)
    12. device = ''
    13. -- Set link to open wiser
    14. -- Use CTC-Wiser://page/pagenumber to set the page number to open
    15. url = 'CTC-Wiser://'
    16. -- Set Title of the link to open Wiser
    17. url_title = 'Open Wiser'
    18. --Seconds to retry when not acknowledged, minimum = 30 (only used with priority 2)
    19. retry = 30
    20. --Seconds to expire retry when not acknowledged, maximum = 86400 (24 hrs, only used with priority 2)
    21. expire = 3600
    22. --Activate Pushover with parameters above
    23. pushover(title, message, sound, priority, device, url, url_title, retry, expire)

    there is an error on line 13 in your code

    now = os.date('*t

    it should read now = os.date('*t')

    Correct user library called called pushover :

    require 'ssl.https'

    local pushover_url = 'https://api.pushover.net/1/messages.json'
    local token = 'PUT YOUR APPLICATION TOKEN HERE' -- Your application token, at least 1 app must be created at pushover.net to get the application token
    local user = 'PUT YOUR USER TOKEN HERE' -- Your user token, retrieve from settings inside pushover application for android or ios

    function pushover(title, message, sound, priority, device, url, url_title, retry, expire)
    if priority < -2 then priority = -2 end
    if priority > 2 then priority = 2 end
    if retry < 30 then retry = 30 end
    if retry > 86400 then retry = 86400 end
    if expire < retry then expire = retry end
    if expire > 86400 then expire = 86400 end
    if priority == 2 then prioritystring = ''.. priority .. '&retry=' .. retry .. '&expire=' .. expire ..'' else prioritystring = priority end
    now = os.date('*t')
    timestamp = string.format('%02d', now.day) .. '-' .. string.format('%02d', now.month) .. '-' .. now.year .. ' ' .. string.format('%02d', now.hour) .. ':' .. string.format('%02d', now.min) .. ':' .. string.format('%02d', now.sec)
    local data_str = 'user=' .. user .. '&message=' .. message .. ' ' .. timestamp .. '&token=' .. token .. '&title=' .. title .. '&sound=' .. sound .. '&device=' .. device .. '&url=' .. url .. '&url_title=' .. url_title .. '&priority=' .. prioritystring .. ''
    local res, code, headers, status = ssl.https.request(pushover_url, data_str)
    end

    The forums screw up Lua code. Wrapping it in a CODE tag reduces the errors, but some still get through.

    Be nice if someone could fix this.

    1)I created a user ID in Pushover
    2) added an application , I called it SHAC
    3) installed pushover app on iPhone and signed in and added iPhone as device
    4) added the first scripts to SHAC user lib - Call it pushover
    5) Pasted APPLICATION TOKEN & USER TOKEN from Pushover web into Shac Script
    6) added an event script and pasted second script
