    Handling Received SMS

    I live in South Africa where Internet connectivity can be unreliable and there are no real consumer SMS gateway services. I already have a GSM device for outbound calls so thought it made sense to make use of the SMS capabilities too. I use mine for alarm events and notifications that the Internet is down.

    For instance, you could run:

    hs.speak("$$DSR:ref:",True);

    Where "ref" is the device reference of the SMS-Message device (look at the device config page to get the reference number)

    Let me know if this makes sense?
    Sure does! Didnt think Thank you.

    I get the impression others are relying on internet SMS gateways for this type of application. To me SMS would be used for important\critical\security notification. Not sure I would rely on internet for that.

    Handling Received SMS

    Hi,
    Is there a way to re-use the contents of a received SMS in events. For instance, I want to send a SMS for a balance and wanted to create an event to transfer that received SMS to say email or HS Speak.
