Automatic SMS Sending

Mon Dec 12, 2011 3:30 pm

Greetings Guys,
I was wondering if it is possible to setup GpsGate to automatically send a reset SMS after a specific timeout period to the devices.

1. Enable SMS for your GpsGate Server. More info:

2. Create a Template Command which looks like the "reset SMS". More info:

The Terminal is very useful when testing your Template Commands. More info:

3. Setup an Event Rule with an "off line" Expression in Step 4. Add a "Command Notifier" in Step 5, which sends back the Template command to your device.

Now, when the device goes off line during X minutes, a reset SMS will be sent back to the device.

hi i have two questions related to above
1- will this send only one sms to restart or will keep sending every x min if the device is not responding ?

2- can i add a second attempt if not responding? or should be another event rule? i am talking about different command like setup the device or dump memory command etc

Depending on what kind of SMS service you use, they typically have a "guaranteed" delivery, even though it might time out after some days. Check with your SMS provider.

You can always setup a second Event Rule with a longer time out period and you have your desired effect.

GpsGate will send the SMS, and it is up to the SMS provider to deliver the SMS.

If you want a second try you can sent up a second Event Rule with a longer time out period and you have your desired effect.

I don't know if I can explain it clearer than that, and my impression is that it also would address your concerns.

Regards,
Johan
