Show SMS text message on Mirror
Hi, New to this forum so a general question.
I would like to show SMS messages on my mirror, fed from my local server. My server is apache, php & wordpress. The functionality works fine but for some messages I would like to forward the SMS and display on the mirror.
Is this possible and if so how to approach it?
I have looked at MM-iFrame but cannot get that to work.
Any suggestions welcome.
@broberg Thanks for that. I did see the module, but as I understand it this will just notify that there is a message , rather than display it?
The intended use I have is to display the message because the viewer may not be able to use a mobile phone.
I can send the message to my website and maybe forward it to the mirror from there perhaps using the wordpress api. This is much more complicated though.
@hawkesley reading the readme file tells you that you can set
displayMessageto true, ie display the message is possible. Install it and try it. Eitherway you need some app like pushbullet to forward the sms text to other devices.
@broberg Ok. Will do if pushB is available for iphone.
Also just discovered MM-syslog which looks promising if it can use an http get i guess?
https://www.pushbullet.com, yes works with ios.
The syslog module works simply enough via http get,
Thanks will try both.
Trying MMM-syslog but cant get access.
This device is not allowed to access your mirror.
Please check your config.js or config.js.sample to change this.
I modified the whitelist as follows
port: 8080, ipWhitelist: ["::fff:0.0.0.0/1", "::fff:18.104.22.168/2", "::fff:192.0.0.0/3", "::fff:22.214.171.124/4", "127.0.0.1", "::ffff:192.168.1.1/24", "::ffff:192.168.1.109","::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"],
The http is : http://192.168.1.112:8080/syslog?type=normal&message=Test Message
Any thoughts appreciated.
@hawkesley did you insert exactly what was showing in the error to the whitelist?
To test, if MMM-syslog suits your requirements you could simply set
ipWhitelist: ,which will allow all connections. In addition you might want to check this thread. In your case you could try to add
"192.168.1.1/24"to support IPv4
