Hi all,

I'm trying to set up an email notification trigger for anytime the ATO low is on. What value do I input in the box after I select "ATO Low Port" and then "=" (or something else?) and "_____________"?

Thanks!

On the Andriod App 1 = on and 0 = off.
I'm assuming the Portal and U-App are the same.

Well..I realized that this won't work for my purpose because the portal doesn't ping the unit in real time....Oh well..

What I was thinking of doing is to get notification each time my ATO goes off. First, since this is a new thing, to double check that everything works and 2nd, just to see how often it goes off in a period of time. If anyone has another, hard coded, way, please let me know!

Thanks!

The notifications on the Android app are not real time,but are still a little more frequent then the portal is.

You can use WiFiAlert Jack. There should be sample code in my INO. You pretty much initialize it and then use a Send function to trigger the alert. The only issue with this is the frequency of the alert. Default is 15 minutes. You can set a flag on the send to ALWAYS send but you have to be careful because it could easily send you a thousand messages if your not careful. And you may need the dev libraries, I forget when it got added, but it should be there I think...

You could set the frequency as low as once per minute which would help, but if the ATO kicks in every 30 seconds for example it will only alert you every other time.

Thanks Lee. I will take a look at your code later. Once a minute frequency would work. My timeout is at 8 minutes so it has to be sooner than that.

I will look and then ask questions. Thanks all.

If you need it within the 8 minutes, then normal portal alert would work. RA sends data to portal every 5

Okay, the five minutes may work. I thought it was more than that. I still want to see what you did though. Thanks!
