I've been reviewing threads here, but it remains unclear on how I would implement what I'm like to do. I'd like to use IFTTT to link Android SMS and HomeSeer for the specific purpose of announcing when a package is delivered.
Currently I receive a pretty timely SMS text from USPS, FedEx, or UPS when a package is delivered. Via IFTTT I'm able to create three applets (one each) based on an SMS coming from a certain number. What I'm unsure about is how to configure the HomeSeer side to receive the message and speak it. I see options for controlling devices and/or running an event, but I need access to the actual text message to determine if it is a delivery or some other notice.
I can do that pretty easily with a regex text, but how can I get access to the text within HS?
For other SMS-based applets, I'm able to specify ingredients to pass (including the text message), but this does not appear available for HomeSeer. Are ingredients not supported?
