Motadata SMS alerts & notifications – integration manual

Here we describe how to setup Motadata with SMSEagle for SMS alerts & notifications.

SMSEagle is an offline hardware SMS gateway. Therefore no external connection to 3rd party system is required. All notifications are generated on-premise and sent directly to a cellular network. This solution can be used in secure installations without Internet access.

SMSEagle Setup

Motadata uses API to communicate with SMSEagle.

  • Create a new user in SMSEagle (menu Users > + Add Users, user access level: “User”).
  • Grant API access to the created user:
    • click Access to API beside the newly created user
    • Enable APIv1
    • Generate new token (copy it for later use)
    • Add access permissions in section APIv1 Permission for: send_sms, send_tocontact, send_togroup
    • Save settings

Motadata Setup

1. Go to Actions (from the Menu on the left panel). Click New button on the right side to create a new action.

2. Fill the fields:

  • Action name: SMSEagle Alert
  • Action: choose SMS Alert
  • Recipients: Number where you would like to receive SMS texts
  • Message: You can leave the deafult placeholders, or modify it to your needs.
  • SMS Gateway URL: https://url-of-smseagle/index.php/http_api/send_sms?access_token=smseagle-token&to={to}&message={message}
  • SMS Timeout: 5


  • url-of-smseagle with actual IP address of the SMSEagle device
  • smseagle-token with already generated token for newly created user

3. Once the action is created, match it with the alert.
