Send Trigger Text as Message

I’m still trying to get some meaningful information sent via VeraAlerts when certain triggers are tripped. I’d like to simply have a specific text message sent out based on the active trigger. Should I be using the global variable container to set the message when the specific event triggers, and then read the contents of that global variable when sending the alert?

That would work.
Here you will call Vera Alerts from LUA.

Set variable in the LUA for the trigger.
Send the message for the LUA for the scene.

For the recipient use the profile or user name(s).

Thank you Richard. By “Here” you mean in the trigger of the scene – right? Is there any documentation on the syntax to call VeraAlerts from Lua?


By here I meant this usage.

To call Vera Alerts from LUA … In the following 83 id the device ID for the Vera Alerts plugin.

luup.call_action(“urn:richardgreen:serviceId:VeraAlert1”, “SendAlert”, {Message = “Message String {tone:1}”, Recipients = “Profile1, Profile2”}, 83)
