SmartAlert Android app

The SmartAlert application for Android  is a user friendly interface for sending SMS commands to remote devices, such as house alarms, GSM actuators, etc. and for receiving and logging the event alerts.

The application is fully configurable, you can add an unlimited number of devices and set for each of them an Alias ( for instance: "Home alarm" ), a Phone number ( complete with international prefix ) and an optional Password.

Click the button with red pencil for entering in the "Device list" and the "Add New" button for configuring a new device.

When you have done all the work, click the "Save" button otherwise all modifications will be lost.

Moreover, you can define a set of SMS commands: each command is composed by an Alias ( for instance: "Activate alarm" ) and a Command code representing the SMS text to be sent to the selected device. The password associated to the device is used to prefix of the command code for a secure access.

Click the "Command" button on the main page for entering in the "Custom Command list" and the "Add New" button for configuring a new command.

When you have done all the work, click the "Save" button otherwise all modifications will be lost.

For sending an SMS with a specific command to the selected device you have to enter in the Command menù and click the green arrow on the left or keep pressed the command button for more than one second.    Anyway you have to confirm the SMS dispatch to avoid unwanted actions.

It is possible to set up to 5 input alarms with specific settings for each device:
when the phone receives an SMS from a configured device and the message text includes the Alarm code, it highlights a red led related to the alarm number on the app's interface and it adds a notification on the status bar.

You may also enter in the Settings and configure the phone for additional signalings:

- chassis vibration
- text to speech of the alarm message
- playing of a custom audio file, such as a recorded "alarm siren" sound

The configuration may be different for each supported device, so you need to select the device before opening the Settings panel.

For stopping the audio you have just to tap the red led.
The alert logs for each device are kept in system memory and you can have a report of all the occurred events, even if you shut down and restart the phone.
