Add-on Paid - SMS-Email alert system

    Looking for an Alert system that would allow a member of a certain usergroup (Admin/Super Mod) to send an alert via SMS (up to 3 numbers) and an email (up to 3 email addresses).

    Function/Alert initiation available via the Moderator ribbon as well as from the ACP or even a Thread in Forum X.

    Need to have an option in the user profile to 'opt in' to the system (usergroup specific)

    Would be nice to have a thread created with the Alert upon initiation (or visa versa - Thread activates Alert?)

    Would prefer to use the XF system email templates instead of the 'Email User' plain text.

    PC me to discuss.

    This is really a great idea, of course what would be an even greater idea is if it actually release..

    Can you send SMS alerts from your server currently ?

    I had this for my vBulletints, and it was very easy to implement because my hoster provided a sms gateway/api ( http://www.artfiles.de/support/webhosting/dcp/sms/http_gateway/ )

    a friend connected an arduino ┬Ác with a mobile card shield to his server and used it for sending and receiving commands via sms & calls but he said this doesn't make sense anymore...

    he wants to do everything via tcpip (mail/http) because it's much easier and because "all" mobile phones have mobile internet flatrates:D
    and you'll get a much easier to read alert/message via mail instead of sms

    I don't know.
    I can send them from my phone and my server is a much more sophisticated piece of equipment so I'm sure something could be worked out - possibly by linking up to an external SMS gateway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_gateway

    SMS from a Server is **MUCH** harder than from a phone.
    How much are those gateways ?
