    HS3 Pushover Plugin

    I have converted my HS2 Pushover plugin (http://forums.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=160996) to HS3. The plugin is a single EXE file which is to be dropped into the HS directory and enabled, it should then start working once you input your API token/device key in the config page but full instructions are in the documentation file.

    The plugin is and always will be FREE, however if you do wish to donate you are more than welcome to (absolutely no obligation to do so) - if only so I can buy more HA related stuff - Donation Link - https://www.paypal.me/krang

    Plugin is now in the updater

    Can we use RegX or something else to parse variable data from with the "Message Body" section?

    The data in the source HS3 Device needs to be 'cleaned up'; this is the full text data...

    " #3 3/20/2019 10:48:38 AM User Robyn - Phone Tracking entered Town Club "

    I only want... "entered Town Club" to be sent in Message Body

    thx!
    Can you give me some examples of some Regex strings you intend to use? I am doing some work on this and can include a custom replacement variable for it that might be the quickest to implement (albeit scripting would probably solve your issue) to get a device status by reference, replace a match pattern with another variable and then print it out. However this causes some issues as I will likely end up with some complicated replacement variables and need to ensure that the patterns are not mistaken for parts of the replacement variable.

    I don't personally have any delay but I have seen odd reports of it, I guess because there are a number of factors at play that makes it difficult to really debug. I've noticed Samsung devices do strange things with push notifications and seem to cause delays and there are a couple of reports on the net about it https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/...ng/td-p/738070

    I'd be looking at seeing whether there is anything common to your mobile devices or reaching out to Pushover about it - their support were pretty helpful when I contacted them, you can give them the message ID from the plugin webpage and they can check their end.

I can see that it's not on the HS side or the plugin that is causing the delay, it just seems to be the time from Pushover to our phones. It doesn't seem to make a difference if we are on wifi or cell data. Have you experienced these kinds of delays and is there any way fix it?
    Thank you!

    I take your point about a forum, perhaps I'll make contact with HST but there official line was always that if it wasn't for sale then you didn't get a forum.
    I believe it needs to be in the store, but the cost can still be $0. It just means you need product description and info that complies with the system that HST has setup. I have mcsMQTT and mcsXap that have forums and are free plugins.

Even if you're not too concerned about it, it would GREATLY help your users, and probably most importantly, it would help them help OTHER users better and take some pressure off you

    My issue is that every time I try to add an event action, I fill out the fields (except for the optional ones), and when I attempt to close the action, it resets all the arguments...

    NEVER MIND! I've never seen a plugin with an "Update" button in the action so I didn't even notice it.
    Due to the number of event options (not sure I've seen a plugin with that many, if there was I'd be interested how it was handled) if I try and do the post back automatically then it will give you a poor experience because you would end up opening and closing the event everytime you changed a box. That is the reason behind the update button.

    I take your point about a forum, perhaps I'll make contact with HST but there official line was always that if it wasn't for sale then you didn't get a forum.

When included in a message they should do the same job so please give it a try.
    Thanks. Good to know. I had some free time, so I just went ahead and cleaned up my script and added separate messages for announcing and pushover. Makes things a bit easier to follow and read. Also easier to not have to strip out the SAPI silence tags I use on announcements.

    Yeah that's the problem. I have a mega script that creates all my announcements and I use the announcement message to send pushover messages if we are away from the house. If there is no convenient work around, I am going to have to rewrite the script to create two separate messages, one for announcement and one for pushover.

    <say-as type="time"> ....current time.... </say/as>

    Is there a workaround for this? I tried to use vb.net replace function, but it ignores the tags.
