    Has anyone seen/posted instructions on how to configure Pushover to work with HS4? I'm not sure if that's been released since the latest entries in this thread (Sep 2020)...?
    Any help would be appreciated -
    I don't think there is any difference. The first post in this thread contains the documentation.

    Haha 😄 you're right, I did figure it out finally. I feel like a dunce for not know about the Delivery Groups feature. But hey, I never had a need for it before so just never looked for it.

    Anyway, thanks for taking time and posting the instructions. And the extra tidbit about the All Devices option on existing events is good to know 👍

    Not only does Pushover have the "Delivery Groups" feature I didn't know about, the plugin actually already supports it. And it works! How 'bout dat


    Sorry for all the commotion here, folks. Carry on...

    I had the exact same single Pushover user (me) setup for years and recently wanted to add various family members for specific different notifications. It took me a little bit to figure this out, but after a short bit I was able to setup it up without any problems.

    First thing you want to do is head over to your account on pushover.net. Halfway down your dashboard, you’ll see an area you can use to set up and maintain Pushover Groups. This is where you create various pushover distribution groups. For example, I created groups called “Husband and Me”, “Entire Family” and “Daughter and Me”. In each of those groups you add all group members and their respective Pushover API Key (including your own as appropriate). When you save each Pushover Group, Pushover creates a unique API Key for that group.

    Then go back to the HomeSeer Pushover Plug-in Configurations/Settings page. At the bottom of the page you’ll see a place to add Pushover groups. Type in your newly create Group Names and each group’s API Key.

    And that’s it. Now when you create an HS Event with a Pushover action, you’ll see these Pushover Groups as available options in the drop down box.

    One thing I wasn’t sure about is that I had all my Pushover actions set with the “All Devices” option checked. This was an issue in the past because it was only my API setup. However, now that I had these Pushover Groups added I wasn’t sure if “All Devices” meant the notice would go out to all options available in the drop down box. I was worried that would have to go back and modify scores of old Pushover Actions to only be directed to my devices. This is NOT the case. The existing Event actions with “All Devices” still just go to my Devices registered under my Psuhover Pushover.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes. "API token" is the verbiage used in the API docs. Each "application" has a unique API token. Each call to the Pushover API requires both the User key and an API token.

    If the plugin allows for only one key then the fix would be to have multiple HomeSeers running, each with a unique PushOver key. Not very practical, though.

    Well dang, I got all excited for a minute there. But it doesn't look like this really solves the problem because if I replace my user key in the plugin with the Delivery Group key, then all pushes will go to the Delivery Group. I only want to send pushes to the whole group in certain events. Most events should just send to my phone.

    But...

    If the plugin were to implement support for Delivery Group keys (in addition to the existing User key), then I think maybe that solves the problem without having to deal with additional API (application) tokens.

    Hopefully Adam will chime in on whether he might be interested in adding this to the plugin.

    While I suppose this does provide an alternate solution, it sure will be expensive for a family.

    I can see maybe a few dollars a month total (not per user) for a family plan, but $5 per user is more of a business pricing model. I'm not saying the service isn't worth it...the Pushover for Teams service looks pretty nice, with centralized management of all devices and so forth...that's important for a business team with hundreds of users. But it's overkill for my family situation.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I had a look at the Pushover API docs and I see now that implementing multiple accounts in the plugin might not be straightforward since the API (application) token will also be unique for each account.

    mrhappy, do you have any thoughts on this?

    But that is not the case. The devices are each only associated with one Pushover account, i.e. the account each user (fiance and kids) has created at Pushover.net. I don't think Pushover.net has anything to do with the problem in this situation. The problem is that it seems the plugin can only work with one Pushover account (user key).
