I have some flows that can be trigged via Telegram Bot commands.
The problem is that if I wish an alarm, let's say a water sensor, - then Telegram is quiet at night, I see no option to force an alert sound.
How can I solve it?
I am also open to integrating it with google Assistant, but I am afraid that won't solve the alarm issue.
...to avoid notification sounds from apps and mail.
Android does provide API for alarms, that are not silenced during the period. I thought something could use it when instructed to. (so that certain notifications were sent with higher priority)
I don't know Android super well but I set up Home Assistant and Node-RED on a Raspberry Pi to send critical alerts to my iOS devices that have the Home Assistant app installed. Which allows for a persistent banner notification and includes audio alerts even when silenced. My reasoning was similar as I was working on an automated indoor gardening project that involved a water reservoir and pump. I wanted a foolproof method of receiving alerts/notifications that doesn't require additional non-locally hosted services.
This Pushover thing looks nice. And for a $5 one-time payment it get's really intersting.
Currently I use Signal for all communication between Node-red and Mobile devices, but it is like @AndKe said; quiet in the night.
Which contrib node would you recommend for a test?
@HaroldPetersInskipp Home assistant is interesting - which Nodered node are you using for it? @Paul-Reed - Pushover is absolutely a nice option too , I'll start with that - I see some use for the option to change sound and attachments too.
@AndKe I'm using node-red-contrib-home-assistant-websocket version 0.49.1
I run my HA server on a Pi 4 as Home Assistant Core: Manual installation using Python virtual environment, but I would recommend one of the more traditional install methods.
This solution lets me get notifications regardless of if I am on my home network with my Mobile device or not. I can get banner and audio alerts that are very customizable with zero additional subscription services and this keeps my information safe and locally managed.
