    Hi!
    As I read here: https://pushover.net/api it`s possible to send messages to specified devices.
    Unfortunately in the Pulse-Station Blockly for Pushover I don`t see this possibility.
    Is there a workaround?

    Why I need this?
    As long as I work on new scences, I don`t want to receive the test-messages at all devices, but only e.g. at my mobile… (My wife got angry with me, because the got all messages at her mobile too ;-))

    Thanx
    Andi

    Hi,

    You can use a blocky custom PHP block to send the Pushover messages in a custom way.

    Example code:

    <?php
    curl_setopt_array($ch = curl_init(), array(
      CURLOPT_URL => "https://api.pushover.net/1/messages.json",
      CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => array(
        "token" => "APP_TOKEN",
        "user" => "USER_KEY",
        "message" => "hello world",
      ),
      CURLOPT_SAFE_UPLOAD => true,
    ));
    curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);

    You can then set custom parameters any way you prefer 🙂

    Have fun,
    Laura

    yes.
    It´s exactly like you said:
    ***
    curl_setopt_array($ch = curl_init(), array(
    CURLOPT_URL => “https://api.pushover.net/1/messages.json”,
    CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => array(
    “token” => “APP_Token”,
    “user” => “USER_KEY”,
    “device” => “DJ-mobile”,
    “sound” => “alien”,
    “message” => “Test”,
    ),
    CURLOPT_SAFE_UPLOAD => true,
    ));
    curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);

    ****
    APP_Token = Your APP-Key from https://pushover.net/apps/
    User_key = Your User-KEy from https://pushover.net/
    device = Device-Name from https://pushover.net/
    sound = from https://pushover.net/api#sounds

    @Laura:
    Maybe you can pimp the Pushover-Blockly with “device” as a free field for the next update?
    🙂

    Hi Laura,
    anything new about this topic?

    Andi

    Btw: in the sound DDL “none” is missing, too.

    Hi Djandib,

    I’ve looked into the code and:
    It’s compiled and encrypted, I cannot change it

    This means I cannot add the sound and I cannot add a device specific message.

    What I can do is completely rewrite it from scratch, which shouldn’t be too difficult, it just takes time.

    I’m only now starting to figure out how to add custom blocky blocks inside PulseStation, so I can get started on that as well.

    Nothing I can’t solve, just takes a lot more time for a free hobby project.

    Kind regards,
    K.Rens

    Thanx for answer.

    Unfortunately I cannot programm Blocky until now….
    So in that point I cannot help you 🙁

    But it works with the custom php blocky block, right?
    You should be able to already do all you want untill we rewrite the full code?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Koen,
    I took a little workaround:
    1) Calling Scene:
    Setting

    2) Called Scene
    Called Scene

    Unfortunately Pulse-Station “forgets” the variables, so I have to save them for using them at the called Scene.

    Koen told me that he uses for this the virtual devices LOV. With them you can use up to 4 values.
    I think this should be another way:
    1) Create a virtual LOV device (e.g. “Pushover”)
    2) Calling Scene:
    Calling Scene
    3) Called Scene:
    CalledScene

    Feel free to give some comments.
