Sending SMS (text) messages from a PAC Controller


#1

We get asked this question a fair bit here at Opto.

“How can I send an SMS or text message from a PAC Controller?”.

The answer is as easy as sending an email from a controller.
Once you have that working, simply look up this web page and find out how to structure your email address to include your phone number.

Thats about it.

I believe that here are other ways of doing this (like Google Voice for example), but I suspect that sending it as an email is the simplest.

If you know another way, by all means, chime in and lets know about it.

Hey There Maybe you can have a look at this. Here I use a gsm modem directly connected to my controller. http://www.opto22.com/community/showthread.php?t=552
