Introduction

The integrated Messenger module of the NETx BMS Core Server allows you to send messages to several services.
This feature can be useful for a number of use cases, for example:

  • Alarm notifications
    • The temperature in room 101 exceeded its maximum allowed value
    • The weather station became offline
  • Timed notifications
    • Every monday, notify a user about the average temperature in a room
  • Conditional notifications
    • A new user checked in to hotel room 101
    • A new report is ready for download

The following services are supported:

  • Email
    • requires an SMTP server
  • Telegram (a widely used messenger service, such as WhatsApp)
    • requires a Telegram account and a smartphone with the Telegram app installed
  • Twilio (a widely used SMS gateway)
    • requires a Twilio account
  • Twitter (a social networking service)
    • requires a Twitter account

NETx BMS Platform ships with pre-built messenger logics, that can be easily configured and used in custom actions.
