How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

I have a new requirement to send myself push notifications - is there a mechanism organic to indigo touch to accomplish this or is that something that requires a plug-in. I noticed a few (plug-ins) but not sure which ones are actively being maintained (if a plug-in is necessary).

Thanks for any help with this question :-)

Do you really mean indigo touch? Or just indigo?

I use the pushover plugin and pushover service since I started with indigo a month ago. I am very pleased with it.

Re: How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

I should have said I was looking for a way to have touch create the notification since it is already part of Indigo and on my phone. I try not to add plug-ins unless it is the only way to get something done.

They create another interdependency and have the liability of possibly not getting necessary updates or updates synchronized with the other interdependent SW components. But thanks for letting me know pushover is a workable solution. I do need to get something working!

Jay, (or Matt) is having the ability to send / receive notifications on the upgrade list for the organic indigo system?

Re: How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

For what it’s worth, I’m on Verizon (US) and I send an email to my-phone-number@vtext.com and get text messages from Indigo with the native email capability (I use the Better Email plugin to do it, but it works just fine with Indigo’s email feature too.)

It works flawlessly.

Hi Dave, I'm sending myself text messages now but they are sometime a bit delayed - I was thinking the notification route would be faster - important since I trying to do something in real time.

PS. Still can't figure out how to change the white text color in my charts but that is a different subject :-)

The text color is controlled by the Plugin Configuration dialog - [Font Color] setting. It's working for me, but it may not be working for you.

Re: How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

I have been trying to make that work for a very long time, I may not be smart enough to drive the SW :-)

Even worse -- this is what it looks like in the email I send myself :-(

PS. These are my current setting....

Re: How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

Hmm. Something is really hinky with that chart device. The following colors don't appear to be working properly:

Annotation Color
Font Color
Canvas Color
Plot Area Color

When you click on a color tool, do you get the color picker window?

Please take a screen shot of the plugin configuration dialog (the whole thing). Then, disable the plugin, shut down the Indigo server and exit the client software. Then delete the following file:
Code: Select all
/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7.3/Preferences/Plugins/com.fogbert.indigoplugin.matplotlib.indiPref


Restart Indigo and restart the plugin. That will cause the configuration window to open. Re-enter your plugin settings and see if the chart colors begin to behave properly.

Not sure what happened to my reply from this morning but it appears to have either not gotten posted or deleted/lost. Anyway, having Indigo Touch receive notifications from the Indigo Server is on our list, but no ETA. I personally use the Prowl Plugin and the Prowl iOS app for my notifications and it works great. The upcoming Indigo 7.3 release will help with managing plugin updates.

Re: How to send push notifications with indigo touch?

OK, thanks for the info Jay, sorry for drifting this off topic. I'll start a new topic to work with Dave in the right area.

Dave, thanks -I'll try that tomorrow and post in a new topic (as mentioned above) - appreciate the help.....
