Twilio Call


The twilio_call notification platform enables sending notifications via Voice, powered by Twilio. Passed message will be read by Text-To-Speech service.

The requirement is that you have setup Twilio.

To use this notification platform in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
notify:
  - name: NOTIFIER_NAME
    platform: twilio_call
    from_number: E164_PHONE_NUMBER

Configuration Variables

from_number

(string)(Required)An E.164 formatted phone number, like +14151234567. See Twilio’s guide to formatting phone numbers for more information.

name

(string)(Optional)Setting the optional parameter name allows multiple notifiers to be created. The notifier will bind to the service notify.NOTIFIER_NAME.

Default value: notify

Usage

Twilio is a notify platform and thus can be controlled by calling the notify service as described here. It will send a notification to all E.164 phone numbers in the notification target. See the notes above regarding the from_number configuration variable for information about formatting phone numbers.
