    In the Pushover app is a "Pushover for Teams" link. However it's a premium service ($5/user/month).

    Hmm. I guess what you need to do is not possible then. I would contact PushOver.net and explain that you have devices which need to use more than one account, and see what they say.

Then within the Pushover.net account settings on the internet you can specify a group name to receive pushes, or just individual devices. Part of the API call (within HomeSeer) is to specify which device or group name would be recipients. Hope this is correctly stated and helps. Hence, no need for additional accounts or key codes, etc.

    I see where I can add additional devices to my own Pushover account and use the different device or group names in events. But what I need to do is add additional user keys to the plugin that correspond to the additional users' devices on their own Pushover accounts. How do I do that?

    Surely I am not limited to a single Pushover account? As an IT security professional, I don't see any scenario where I enter my own Pushover account credentials on a bunch of other devices that are not in my control

    You are correct, that was the case. However now that I was going to have another look at the drop-down, it seems to be blank both for existing and new actions. Not sure what happened there, but as I recall the list did contain the standard sounds only. Do you know if the drop-down is populated based on a fixed set of sounds, or does it pull the values from the Pushover API?
    After I had written, I went and tried the custom sound. It was added into the dashboard, and the test notification worked via the dashboard, but the HS plug in still showed the fixed list of sounds, not showing the custom sound name I had added to the dashboard. I am assuming the custom sounds is a whole new idea from the developer, and I hope the HS plug in might get an update soon. A custom sound would be ideal, rather than associating a bicycle bell to an event, it could just announce it.

    Hmmm, interesting thought... I'll try that when I get back home.

Pretty simple stuff, send a notification when (zwave) lock unlocks, send a notification when lock locks. The notifications are working fine, message title is good but the variable substitution in the message body seems to come out reversed from what I'd be expecting.

    So in the message body I have this for the "unlocked" event...
    HTML Code:
    <B><font color=red>Unlocked</font> </B><BR> $$DSR:969:<BR> at $TIME on $DATE
    And this for the "locked" event...
    HTML Code:
    <B><font color=green>Locked</font> </B><BR> $$DSR:969:<BR> at $TIME on $DATE
    If I look in the HS4 logs we see...
    Code:
    [FONT=Calibri][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=black]2021-06-12 8:55:49 PM[/COLOR][/FONT][/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=black]Legacy-Plugin[/COLOR][/FONT][/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=black]Z-Wave[/COLOR][/FONT][/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=black]Device: Lock Front Door Access Control Notification Set to NOTIFICATION for type Access Control Notification, Event: RF Lock Operation[/COLOR][/FONT][/FONT]
    Looking at the device in the HS4 console we see the "RF Lock Operation" status as I would expect.

    *BUT* the Pushover notification comes in reversed ("RF Unlock Operation" for when locked and "RF Lock Operation" when unlocked).

    Just to make sure I wasn't seeing things I tried swapping the status codes within the lock device itself... when I did that the notifications were right in Pushover, but wrong everywhere else.

    I should also mention that the various other status messages (Manual Lock/Unlock, Keypad Lock/Unlock) are working properly... it's just the "RF Lock/Unlock" that show up reversed in the pushover notifications. Seems very strange to me as I would have thought a substitution was exactly just that, a substitution. Any thoughts?

As long as a locking event ends up sending out a locked notification, and an unlock event send out an unlock notification then all would be well.
    DLONG2 I have other types of notifications, and in fact even the pushover "works" insofar as I manually set the message title to "locked" or "unlocked". It's more a curiosity thing at this point as to why out of all of the various status' that get returned by the lock why the pushover plugin sees the substitution for the "RF lock/unlock" ones as reversed from what they should be.

    Does anyone have an example of sending multiple lines of text from a file as a pushover message in a script?
