SMS alerts through View Point


SMS alerts through View Point


My customer mentions that they cannot use View Point for sending SMS, only the feature of email and SNMP is available. Is there a workaround to send sms from ViewPoint?

Yes, the workaround is to use the email functionality in Viewpoint to send SMS messages. Each wireless carrier has an email format that includes the mobile phone number and a specific domain name for the carrier. For instance, if the carrier were AT&T, the SMS address for sending a message to phone number (123) 456-7890 would be Check with your customer to determine their wireless carrier and then reference that carrier's website for the specific format and domain to use.
