It uses the portal notification. How long did you leave it in NTM mode? The RA only sends data every 5 minutes and then I think the portal only sends alerts every hour. It will send to the email set in the portal (if the app can set this then yeah the email will be sent to that...) The portal does not send SMS directly.

I downloaded this new app and added a couple notifications, but not sure if it's doing anything.

For example, I added a notification for: VT Nutrient Transport Mode (wanted to test to see if NTM begins after feeding mode ends... as I've added those instructions to my INO code).

Parameter: Vortech Mode
Condition: =
Value: 5.0

I then wanted to test this notification by manually changing my VT mode in the RA Status Android App. I know it went into NTM because I watched it change live and in person. However, I didn't get any notifications from the new app.

I also changed the Value to 3, 4, 6, etc. and tried a couple different values to make sure that wasn't the issue. Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

NOTE: My RA Version on my controller is 1.0.5 in case that makes a difference.

Maybe I just don't understand the purpose of the app... is it supposed to alert me on my phone? Send an email? Do something on the Portal?

the new app only allows you to manage the notifications on the portal. it does not do anything on your phone. it also does not interface with my status app. the notifications will trigger based on the portals data.
like lee said, the portal can get data every 5 minutes from the controller which will then trigger the notifications that you set.

That explains it then. I was expecting an immediate notification of some sort and only tried it for a minute or two then gave up on it.

I'll do some more testing for longer periods of time later on to see how it all works.

Thanks guys!

cool. this new app is a little misleading and was just geared at managing the portal triggers.
i may incorporate it into my app and allow the notifications to work the same.... or give people an option to import their portal notifications into the status app or allow them to export to the portal... not sure yet though. just depends on what people request and suggest.
