Using Sipgate for SMS notifications on a Synology NAS
The Synology OS (DSM 3.0) supports sending SMS notifications by posting to a HTTP url. Sipgate offers a SMS gateway, and an XMLRPC-based API.
This is a small script to bridge the Synology SMS feature to Sipgate by running a tiny HTTP service locally on your NAS, which accepts the URL parameters passed to it, and converts them into a Sipgate API call.
This script is written in Python, which isn't installed by default, so we install it first:
$ ipkg install python27
If you don't have
ipkg installed yet, see:
Let's install the tarball:
$ cd /opt/local $ curl -L http://github.com/miracle2k/synology-sipgate-sms/tarball/master | tar -xzv $ mv miracle2k-synology-sipgate-sms-* sipgate-sms
Create the configuration file (no need to change it, normally):
$ cd /opt/local/sipgate-sms $ cp config.py.template config.py
Enable the daemon to autostart:
$ cp /opt/local/sipgate-sms/initd-script /opt/etc/init.d/S10sipgate-sms
Start the daemon:
$ /opt/etc/init.d/S10sipgate-sms start
Now, in the Synology Admin GUI, setup the SMS provider (Control Panel -> Notification -> SMS -> SMS service provider -> Add). Name the new provider "Sipgate" and use the following url:
Press "Next", and assign the proper category for each parameter.
Press the "Send a test SMS message" button to test.
You can run
./server.py on the console to get output. Alternatively,
when running as a daemon, a log file will be created in
/var/log/sipgate-sms.log. You can modify it's location in the
