Send Notifications of Home Events

When significant events occur at home, such as a missed call or package delivery, have a message sent to your cell phone or email at work.

One of the benefits of having a smart home is that it can tell you about things that need your attention—sort of like an administrative assistant who handles most things and saves the important decisions for you. In fact, once you start having your house notify you, you’ll find it so handy that you’ll want to be able to add all sorts of routines in your home automation system. The best way to do this is to set up a general-purpose routine that any script or event can call. This centralizes the logic of how to send the notifications and enables you to quickly change all of them, perhaps switching one email address to another, by making the change in one place.
