I suspect the Twilio addon may be rendered useless soon (if not already) for most Webthings users.
There are new regulations being put in place as explained at https://www.twilio.com/docs/sms/a2p-10dlc. This regulation helps prevent spam by requiring I register a brand and campaign case to keep messages from being filtered by carriers when an automated process sends text to a person (A2P). I started seeing most Webthings messages “disappear” a few days ago.
I’m hoping someone out there can either provide me an alternative to Twilio for sending system SMS notification or some encouragement the new Twilio process is simpler than it looks. I use Twilio to send text messages to myself and spouse regarding security, leak sensors and sensor battery states. In a busy month 15 messages will go out. The sticky issue seems to be that, before approval, they want to see an automated logic flow that allows the message receiver (me or my spouse) to opt out. I’m not sure I want to invest a bunch of time to understand and implement a solution if simple alternatives exist.
Any guidance or direction will be appreciated.
