[RELEASE] Using Twilio to Send SMS



Big update… this no longer requires Google and we can reply to an SMS with a command!!!

Example Piston:

SMS Screenshot:


  • If not already done, setup a Twilio account as detailed in post 1
  • Change ‘To’ to your mobile number, (+1 format for US)
  • Change ‘From’ to you purchased Twilio Number (do not use an alphanumeric sender ID if you are planning to use the reply feature)
  • Change ‘AccoutSID’ - Get this from Twilio Dashboard
  • Change ‘Auth’ as follows:
  • POST request anonymized in the piston snapshot above should be https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/{AccountSID}/Messages.json
  • In Twilio, go to your phone number (https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers/incoming) and change the ‘Message comes in Webhook’ to your pistons external URL.


Does one require a twillio number for each piston?


Nope… same number can be used across all pistons.
