[Update] The Pushover Driver is now included as part of the Hubitat Firmware. The Hubitat team included a version of the driver below to simplify the process for setting this up. You do NOT need to add the custom Pushover Driver below. Just be sure your Hubitat hub's firmware is up to date.
While I appreciate the native Hubitat SMS Text Messaging capability, I find the 10 messages per day a bit limiting. My wife really likes to get a notification whenever the washer or dryer finishes a cycle, and on a busy day, that can mean quite a few messages. I also use notifications to let us know if a door has been left open for too long.
So, based on a tip from @Jonovan.Boutte , I discovered Pushover. I grabbed the ST DTH and cleaned it up a bit for use as a Hubitat Driver. I also simplified it for my needs. One significant addition I made to this version was to add the 'Speech Systhesis' Capability. This allows Rule Machine to 'Speak' a notification via this Pushover Driver. Credit for this idea goes to @mattw! (Note: If you use the 'Speech Synthesis' Capability of this driver, you will still simply get a push notification on your phone/tablet. This driver has nothing to do with Text To Speech (TTS).)
[UPDATE] Rule Machine now has the option to 'Send notification to device(s)?' This is probably the best way to send a request to your Pushover Device(s).
To use this, you'll need a Pushover Account (https://pushover.net 53Red Waterproof Grey 3pcs Nylon Women Mother Set Domybest Key Backpacks Clutch Wristlets XSwvq7XnP) and Mobile App installed on your phones/tablets. You use the same account to sign into the mobile app on all devices. At https://pushover.net 53, you'll need to 'Create an Application/API Token' which is used to configure the Hubitat Pushover Device's Preferences.
From your account at https://pushover.net 53
And here is the Pushover Device configuration screen where you will paste in your tokens from your Pushover account.
[Update] I have added an updated screenshot showing all of the new user preferences added by @stephack. Stephan has made some great additions to this driver, exposing many of the Pushover API's options. You can create multiple Pushover devices on your Hubitat hub, each using the same Keys, but with unique options. For example, you could create a Pushover Device for each of your family members' phones, thereby allowing you to select which user(s) get each message.
And finally, here is the Pushover Driver for Hubitat [UPDATE - Driver is now included in the Hubitat firmware. No need to add this to your custom drivers any longer.]
