twilio_sms 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
# Example configuration.yaml entry notify: - name: NOTIFIER_NAME platform: twilio_sms from_number: E164_PHONE_NUMBER or SENDER_ID
An E.164 formatted phone number, like +14151234567. See Twilio’s guide to formatting phone numbers for more information. Alternatively, a sender ID can be used instead of a phone number. The sender ID must be formatted according to Twilio’s guidelines. See Twilio’s guide to sender ID for more information. Do keep in mind that not all countries support sender ID. See Twilio’s page of supported countries for more information.
Twilio is a notification 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. It’s also possible to use
whatsapp:+123456789 for sending notifications to a Whatsapp user.
Media can be included with messages by setting the optional
media_url variable. Only
.jpeg content are supported, according to the Twilio documentation and this feature is only supported in the US and Canada.
