#Google Voice SMS Plugin

This plugin allows you to send SMS messages via any number to a Google Voice account. It will also insert the last SMS message received by an account into a state in the account device that can be used as a trigger.

Variable Updating

The Google Voice plugin can update variables (if enabled in the configuration) by using the message format "set to ". Note that variables are case sensitive. For example, to update your thermostat via this plugin: create a variable heatSetpoint create a variable coolSetpoint create a variable hvacMode create a trigger for each of these variables on change that updates the thermostat with the variable values

You can now send the SMS message to your GV account: "set hvacMode to cool" and "set coolSetpoint to 67" which (assuming your triggers are correct) turn on your A/C to 67 degrees.

##Downloading for use

Once it's downloaded just open that folder and double-click on the "GoogleVoiceSMS.indigoPlugin" file to have the client install and enable it for you.
