Advanced Functions
« on: December 26, 2010, 06:40:36 PM »

I'm trying to send a text message to my cellphone when one of my door/window sensors is triggered, but there's no info in the AHP Help.

There's something  in Macro "Advanced Functions" about sending an email but I don't know how to make it work.

Can anyone help?

You don't know how to send a e-mail or SMS they are the same!
You need to know your cell carriers address.
I posted in  PCCompaion what can it do for you?   a list of carriers and their addresses.

I tried using the email function by putting in my email address in the Advanced Functions but it doesn't work. Is there a little bit more to this that you're not telling me?

Hint: If I go to MyHouse there is something about email configuration.....HELLO?

birdzeye you need to have entered your email address info in AHP I believe in the Myhouse section then it should work!
You have to select which send meathod you wish it to use. Maybe you forgot to select one!
Of coarse you could always use PcCompanion As vantech suggests and get a little more options.
But try to get AHP to work for you anyways!

In MyHouse>Email configuration there is already the following info:

Your email name:   MyHouse Service
Your email address: AHPGateway@x10.com

Do I leave this info in there?

Nope not unless your email address is that!
Which I doubt.
You want your email name and address that you use with your email application.

OK I just triggered my alarm and the email works immediately, but the DS7000 console is not dialing out the phone number.

How did you trigger the alarm?
You have to physically trip the sensor (not from AHP) and it (the sensor) must be registered in the DS7000.

Yes I physically triggered the alarm and all sensors etc are registered with the console and AHP. I've done it before and it worked, it's just not working now, or it's taking way longer than usual for the thing to start dialing.
Is there a way to test it without that siren going off?

Just one more question about the email.

When I get the email and look at the email's properties, it says it's coming from AHPGateway@x10.com. And in the "from" line it says MyHouseService.

I took all that info out of the MyHouse email configuration, and put my own personal email info, so shouldn't it be saying it's coming from me?

Does the email message sent by AHP get sent to AHPGateway first?

  Well it is suppost to use the setting you select but I found in older versions it never used the same setting.
I found it usualy reverted to sending threw the gateway. ::) :'

I wish I could say for sure. I stopped using the email function at 3.228.
Maybe one newer then that! 
This maybe one of those long outstanding bugs that keeps getting missed.
