Looks great !!

I’ve been using the code for this, so I’m looking forward to being ablework with the UI, which for me is easier to use/understand.

Keep up the great work !!

I’ve seen your recent email notification post and now this one, So I look forward to seeing what comes next :wink:

Hi Massalia

I’ve just created the device and run it a few time and it works really well - thank you again for sharing …

Out of interest do you have any plans to add more options to the input values from the API (http://www.prowlapp.com/api.php) e.g. Priority, URL etc ?

@parkerc, it was enough to ask :wink:

New version 0.6 just published with new priority and URL parameters available in scene.


good job :wink:

possible to do a plugin with pushinbox ?



That was my initial plan but it’s impossible now to install pushingme.to App from Appstore, it raise an error.
I send a message to the support and i’ve got … no answer.

If someone can send me the Iphone IPA file in private (The apps is free, so no piracy stuff), i can install it and add the required code.[/quote]

it’s not pushme it’s http://www.pushingbox.com/
this service send notification to pushme ,android and karotz etc…


Ooops misreading sorry, Yes i can do it, but probably in a new plugin.
I’m just finishing PushOver Integration before.

Hi Massalia,

I have tested 0.7 with Prowl on UI5 1.5.408…

Seems that the plugin doesn’t keep my prowl API key… Is this normal ?

It still keep old values even after “press” save button ?



After uploading or updating files, you must

[ul][li]Restart Luup engine [/li]
[li]Refresh your web page in your browser[/li][/ul]

New version 0.8 just published with new GUI improvment and PushOver full service support.
Add per service message count and reset function. BugFix

See first post for details, and roadmap.

Hi !

0.8 works much better, BTW I have installed it using apps.mios.com that push the installation…

I can confirm now that plugin remember my prowl settings :slight_smile: But went sending some event I get : Missing file… error see captures :slight_smile:

It seems that the application field (not file) :wink: is missing, it’s an error message coming from prowl server.
I was able to reproduce the problem by removing value from the Application name in the Prowl Setup Tab.

You must have a value for this field, it cannot be Blank (See Screenshot)
Could you please tell me if it’s help.


I was thinking of that, unfortunately it is set to something (before, it was set into “Vera”, the default value, but I has set it to “Maison” but this doesn’t change anything).

Maybe the the value gets lost somewhere ?



Could you please load the attached version, reload lupp …

Goto to advanced Tab, set Debug value to 2, then try to resend a message and after the error occured, go to the advanced tab and send me the content of the DebugData field and a screenshot of the advanced Tab please.


I have installed 0.8 manually and tested with PushOver and it seems to be working very well.

Great Job! This will be very handy!

Out of interest, does anybody know how I can fire a PushOver message via LuuP code? An example would be greatly appreciated. Most of my scenes are written in LuuP and I could send different messages depending on my various “If” statements.




I add an exemple of Luup code needed to call main functions at the end of the first post.
