Notify on Garage door open

Desired set-up: garage door tilt sensor indicates door ‘open’. If open more than 30 minutes OR after some hour at night (e.g. 10pm), send a notification to my and wife’s iphones. This can implemented in two scenes.

The last recommendation in this thread makes sense to me. However, I have these questions:

The first call_action: what is HWPuush1?
What is the ‘device’ parameter in both of these call_actions? are those users?
Is VeraAlerts still active and functional?


You can do this with Reactor, and VeraAlerts is not required.

There is also plenty of topics on this forum about reactor and door open notifications.

@rigpapa: thanks for the video link. I see in other threads that Reactor does not handle notifications, rather, I assume, the notifications tab in your video would be set to notify one of the users, similar to a scene, correct?

Old threads. Reactor has a “Notify” action that can send notices to known Vera users on your account, SMTP mail messages, Prowl Push, Syslog, and HTTP post.

Excellent. Thanks!
