Our client has its own SMS server which can send and receive SMS via REST API.
The Ignition library support REST API and I can send and receive SMS via python easily.
The SMS notification block only support AirLink LS300 modem or twilio account.
Now I want alarm pipeline redirect the result to my SMS server instead of AirLink LS300 or twilio.
Is it possible to create my own notification box in alarm pipeline?
Is it possible to force ignition to generate an event when alarm pipeline execute SMS notification block? so I can write my own script to send SMS?
I install the module and in New Alarm Notification Profile there is option for GSM modem but in setting page it only accept host and port in modem connection selection. Is it possible to use AT commands base serial modem like “Wavecom Fastrack M1306B”?
If it is not please tell me which modems I can use for this module.
The host and port are the settings for the modems Ethernet (telnet) port. The module uses AT commands on this port.
Serial ports are not supported, in fact I am surprised that there are still modems with serial RS232 port available. You could try an serial to Ethernet converter, but that might be more expensive than a new modem.
Generally all GSM modems that accept AT commands on an ethernet/telnet connection should work. We are using the ‘GSM GPRS Modem / LAN’ from ConiuGo.
There will be an Ignition 8 version, but maybe not with the 8.0 release.
