    Dec-29 10:14:46 AM Event Event Trigger "Notifications Push Test Event"
    Dec-29 10:18:50 AM Pushover 3P Pushover Notification Sent - Message Title: Testing

    Any thoughts on what is going on during those three minutes and how I might correct the issue?

    Thank you for your help.
    No and it's not something I've seen before or been reported to me, can I ask what other plugins you are running on the system and what type of system is it (Linux/Windows)? It may point to a issue with HS being locked due to something playing up - do other events with the plugin disabled still run OK?

    Currently I have a setup that sends a picture from the webcam at the door the moment the doorbel rings. I am using e-mail and a small script to do so.

    I am wondering if this is something I could with Pushover.

    Here are my thoughts:
    • If I understand correctly I cannot attach any images to a pushover message.
    • I believe it is possible to add URL's to a Pushover message that can be opened automatically using the option "Auto-open URL's"
    • I do not want to have a URL that points to my internal (home) storage because of security

    To make this happen I have the following challenges:
    • I will have to use an intermediate platform like eg. Onedrive to store the captured images
    • What would be the best way to copy a file from homeseer to Onedrive?
    • How do I preserve the URL, insert it in the pushover message and open it automatically?

    Open for brilliant ideas !

    Unfortunately it is not an easy way to do this as I have thought of it before, you are correct in your thoughts that you cannot send pictures in the messages as it stands with Pushover. Others may have got a solution to this already and offer an input. The thoughts I had was;

    1) Run a very small web server dedicated to this task of hosting the images, that way it is a bit more simple to copy a file from a HS script into the web server directory that allows you more control. Downside is all the issues around hosting, port forwarding, security etc.

    2) Upload it to web space, should be possible with the hs.ftp command (if it works) to upload an image then you can point to it in a Pushover message. Then you have to worry about cost, subscriptions to hosting companies.

    In terms of OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox then I've also thought of this but the option of using say the desktop client and just copying a file then it would be a worry of mine about whether the image you are viewing is actually the image you wish to see. From my experience with Google Drive it seems to be quite slow to upload files, there may be options in terms of .net libraries that offer assurances of the uploaded files being actually there.

    The other consideration may be PushBullet - I think that supports sending images but you'd need to do a bit of research as I don't know anything really about it.

    I'm afraid I'm going to need a bit more - when you load the plugin does it give any errors? Does the HomeSeer log show any success at downloading the sounds from Pushover (should say how many sounds it has managed to download). Usually this points to incorrect details in the config page.
