I am due to get my Hub tomorrow and notice something missing I would love to have.
Support for sending an email instead of SMS or push notification.
Reason 1) If I do not have proper cell service (in a rural area) I will not get text or push notification, but I can check my email in a hotel or friends house. This way I can still get important info sent to me.
Reason 2) With the update google made to Android 9, I can't allow just certain apps to send push notifications during DND mode. Its all or nothing. (Issue they said would be fixed in months to come, Hopefully)
Reason 3) Most Cell providers offer a way you can send a text email to SMS.
Example. I can crate an email and have the email address (my number@provider)
Find more info about that here:
So can some create support for email via google API? So we put in our credentials (email address & password) , and then in the trigger we specify it an email, then who its to and if there are any cc, or bcc, and then the message.
This would allow us to get emails for certain things and for carriers that support it we can get sms also for other things.
I have no clue how to do this else I would. Its an nice alternative to pushover.
Thanks everyone. Looking forward to joining the family and leaving ST behind.
