SMS control help
The app is designed to be simple to use, yet giving you some advanced options in sending pre-defined sms-messages.
The primary features of this app are:
- Define one or more units with as many buttons as you like
- Define each button with
- Text color
- message to sent
- Delay sending of sms up to 24 hours
When first launching the app, you will be prompted to define a unit.
A unit is a device capable of receiving sms messages.
Each configured unit has can contain any number of different predefined messages.
These messages will each be put on a button, of which you also can define the caption, and it’s colour.
To make the sms messages as flexible as possible, it’s possible to use two kinds of placeholders.
- Use one or more of the variables available under settings.To use these variables, just put %v1 to %v5 in the message. It will then be replaced with the content of the variable when sending the message.
- Put @sometext@ (including the two @’s) in the message; you will then, when sending a message, be prompted to substitute the @xx@ part of the message with a value.
Ex: if you have a car heater that can be set to run for a particular timespan (this case for 30 minutes) when sending a message like: ‘RUN30’, then the message for a button may look like this: ‘RUN@Minutes@’.
When sending the message, you will be prompted for a vlaue to substitute for @Minutes@.
