A simple adapter exposing actions to send texts through the Mozilla IoT Gateway. Requires a Twilio API account.
On Twilio's homepage click sign up Fill out your account details. Verify a phone number with Twilio. This should be the number you're planning to send text messages to using the adapter. Click on the Flex project to create a simple base to get an account SID and auth token. Because we're just using this project for API access, it's name and specific details don't matter too much. With the Flex project created we now want to get to the Twilio Console to get our API access information. I found the easiest way to get to this is to navigate to https://twilio.com/console. Take note of the account SID and auth token for configuring the adapter later.
We also need to know what phone number Twilio plans to use for us. If we scroll down on this console page, we can navigate to the Phone Numbers section. Like the account SID and auth token, copy down this phone number for later.
Next, we install the Twilio adapter from the addon list. On your gateway, go to the Settings section and click on Addons. Next, click the plus (+) button and scroll down to install the Twilio adapter. With the adapter installed, we can click "Configure" to configure the adapter with our account SID, auth token, and assigned phone number from the Twilio console.
Finally, navigate to the main Things page and click the plus button to add the Twilio thing. Unfortunately it is not currently supported in any rules, but an update to the rules engine should fix this soon.
