Does anyone have any ideas on how to integrate Telegram

Hi, posting this to see if anyone can figure out a way to integrate telegram with indigo.

Telegram is really fast, supports animated gifs, is encrypted and works on all platform types - it is also 100% free(and no adds).

Info on telegram at the link below, it has a full API.

https://telegram.org

Thanks for any help in advance...

There's an API, so a plugin could be written. But I'm pretty much booked until the end of the year, so I wouldn't even be able to look at it until almost Christmas.

Norm - can you tell if the camera is using the direct API or the Bot API? Did you have to create a user account for the camera device? Or does it use your account info?

There are two very distinct APIs for Telegram, and I'm unsure which is more appropriate for a plugin.

Looks like it's been integrated into Home Assistant. I can probably do a similar integration.

Hi Joe, I did create an account (for both Camect and telegram) and I think Camect is using a bot - here are some screen shoots. When my wife get up I'll ask here to get more info from the Camect staff to get you a better answer.
