Twilio SMS


The twilio notification platform enables sending notifications via SMS, powered by Twilio.

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_sms
    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.
