Using the latest 3.2x version I managed to configure Pushover.net into the server for notifications. So far I am impressed with the results (except for false motion alerts due to shadows from trees or rain). I will mention what could be improved as I go along :-).
First, I bought Pushover.net for my Android devices and Chrome desktop... a dirt cheap application in the scheme of things.
This is how I integrated into the Server... with "Do HTTP Request" action".
The URL that is launched is to my NX Cloud portal. You will have to determine the GUI'ds of the camera from your system.
ENHANCEMENT IDEA #1 : The ability to pass metadata into an HTTP request like %Camera, %System would be good.
ENHANCEMENT IDEA #2 : The ability to pass an image based on the motion event so that the Push notification could have a little screenshot and get attached as multi-part media.
The results look like this on my phone.
First, the notification as it comes in:
When I click on it it goes to the detail.
When I click the URL it launches nxvms to the right camera - but to a LIVE view.
ENHANCEMENT IDEA #2 : Ability to pass an exact time of the alert in a nxvms launch URL to position the camera at the right part of the recording. It's not easy on a phone to get to the exact point.
If you have any questions - I will monitor this thread.
