    Hi all

    Just wondering if wiser is capable of sending push notifications to mobile devices?

    It would be nice to get notified if particular GA's have been activated ie. external PIR's etc.

    Cheers

    Hi Jorr,

    Other threads on this forum outline the following possible solution for Android devices:
    1. Have the wiser send an email to a gmail account (the Wiser can send to a gmail account or any other, but it cannot receive emails from a gmail account).
    2. Set up your Android phone and gmail account to support pushed emails to your phone.

    You would probably also want to restrict the other non-Wiser emails being received by the gmail account that you use for this.

    'push' emails are supported by any device that supports exchange emails or activesync. not just android devices.

    so that means any Hotmail or gmail etc email service will 'push' the email to your device, such as iphones/ipads, windows phones, any Samsung phone.

    It depends on your definition of "push notifications". What I have seen done is the use of the Wiser's HTTP GET/POST capability in logic. Eg taken from Roosta:
    ---
    once (GetLightingState("IP Cam Pos1") = ON) then
    Begin
    PostHTTPData('http://10.1.1.33:1900/decoder_control.cgi?command=31&user=admin&pwd=','' ); {Command to send camera to preset 1}
    Delay("0:00:01");
    { Would be better to call read in a while loop until data is received but for simplicity, just call it a couple of times }
    ReadHTTPPostData(DataString);
    Delay("0:00:01");
    ReadHTTPPostData(DataString);
    SetLightingState("IP Cam Pos1", OFF);
    End;
    ---
    You could use the http get/post functions to talk to a suitable web service. If you prefer lower level access, you can use the TCP client sockets.
