READ THE CHANGELOG BEFORE UPDATING!

Phone Notifications



  • @ronny3050 Seems perfectly reasonable to me. Would it abandon the usage of the PushBullet API/Access Token completely?


  • Module Developer

    @malicious_banjo Yes, it will. It will be a lot of work, but I think it would work well due to the following advantages -

    • Phone call alert with caller ID
    • App for both Android and iOS
    • No relying on push limits/month
    • Issues can be resolved in an easier fashion


  • @ronny3050 Sounds great. I just finished my mirror a few days ago so I’m quite new to this community; have they’re been a fair amount of issues concerning this module? I’m guessing some kind of recent update to PushBullet is throwing everything out of whack?

    It’s possible and yes, there are more issues than I would like to have. I’ll get started on this and update you. Please hang tight! 🙂


  • Module Developer

    @malicious_banjo another advantage is pushbullet does not capture all notifications - it depends on the applications sending the notification. This should be resolved by having a custom app as well 🙂



  • Was looking at this module to display some push notifications. I know that it won’t work with Pushover due to their API, but there is one option that Pushover has that would be really useful which is syncing alert dismissals. This means that you can get the alerts on your phone or mirror, but as soon as you acknowledge it on the phone it is removed from all other devices. This would be good to ensure you see the alert wherever you are, but are able to control when it is removed from the mirror. Just a thought 🙂



  • Hello

    I hope someone could help me.

    Iphone 6s with IOS 11
    Rasperrby

    Issue:
    I see on the screen no new notifications, I also i added the API Key from Pushbullet on the config but I can’t send message from the Iphone to the MagicMirror. I only see in the Iphone App the Iphone and not the MagicMirror.

    Thanks for help me or clarified.



  • Same problem as Ogret2 here. I’m also quite not sure, how the pushbullet app is supposed to know about the other notifactions from my iPhone? But not even pushbullet notes arrive. Am I supposed to add the Mirror as an device? That’s what I did with my raspbery projects so far when using pushbullet to notify myself on the phone. But I only see the option for the general auth token.

    [edit]
    apparently it’s broken due to pushbullet 😞 maybe add a notice on github or so.



  • Hello,

    For me everything is working but the Mirror doesn’t show any notification from Snapchat.

    Thanks for helping!
