I’ve been happily using OpenHab (currently 2.5.2 on Windows) for a few years now. All is working well and I can control all my lights and switches from the OpenHab app (through MyOpenHab) on Android without any issues.
I have Aeotec door sensor and in my UI it shows when the door is open or closed. What I’d like to do is have it notify me when it opens. I’ve tried both sendBroadcastNotification to send the notification to the app and sendNotification to send it to email but neither seem to work.
Here’s the rule I have:
rule “Door is Open”
Item iDoorSensor changed from CLOSED to OPEN
then sendBroadcastNotification(“Door is Open”)
Is there something I’m missing? Is there something I need to setup/configure to get OpenHab to send an email or send the notification to the app?
I appreciate the link. I will be more cognizant of it next time.
I see that I didn’t show the effort I put in (#9) and neglected to give more information. I certainly did a lot of searching before posting and tried my best to find something that explained how sendBroadcastNotification and sendNotification work.
I saw it here but still couldn’t figure it out. The link to GitHub wasn’t very helpful for me (I have more to learn).
I understand that OpenHab is a free service and am so appreciative of it and all those who dedicate their time to it.
