Berto Pushover

 

The Berto Pushover driver provides integration to the Pushover messaging service. To use the driver you need to setup an account on Pushover and purchase the appropriate licences for the devices you intend to send and receive messages with. The licences are by device type and are a small one off cost only.

 

To send messages from your Control4 system you will also need to setup an Application Token.

Messages received update the TITLE, MESSAGE, URL, PROFILE and LAST_MESSAGE variables which can be used in programming. Messages can also be sent to other Pushover devices registered to your account.

Users setup with a Berto Profiles driver will be able to received messages from the Pushover driver based on the pin number supplied in the title of the message. The Pushover message title should contain the user porfile name in uppercase followed by a space and the users pin number. This ensures that the driver only processes message received with the correct credentials. When a secure message is received the profile name and pin number are removed from the title and the PROFILE varibale is updated with the profile name. The NORMAL_MESSAGE_RECEIVED or SECURE_MESSAGE_RECEIVED event is fired indicating the type of message received. The message is then sent to the corresponding user profile driver.

 

In conjuction with IFTTT and the IFTTT Pushover service you can integrate other external devices to trigger programming in your system eg. Alexa or Google Assistant. Alternatively you can use the Berto IFTTT to integrate directly with the IFTTT Webhooks Service.

There is a limit of sending or receiving 100 messages per day with the Basic subscription level.
