Ring Status Notifications to Cell Phone

You may receive text message notifications to your cell phone of ALS ring status.

One Time Notification with "beam is back" follow up
Send a text message from your phone to : alsringstatus@gmail.com containing the letters "als" in the body of the text.

You will get a response with current status and, if beam is down, it will send a follow up text as soon as beam is back.

If your phone won't send a text to an email address, try adding a contact for alsringstatus with the email address and no phone number. Then send a message to that contact. This works on many phones.

Timed Status Monitoring:
If you would like to be notified of ANY status change in the next N hours:
text "add time N" to alsringstatus@gmail.com
where N is a number in hours.
You will be removed from the notification list automatically after N hours.

To be removed from the timed list before N hours have passed:
text "remove time" to alsringstatus@gmail.com

Continual Status Monitoring:
If you would like to be notified of ANY status change:
text "add me" to alsringstatus@gmail.com

To be removed from the notify list:
text "remove me" to alsringstatus@gmail.com

Daytime Status Monitoring:
If you would like to be notified of ANY status change during daytime hours of 9 am to 6 pm:
text "add day" to alsringstatus@gmail.com

To be removed from the daytime notify list:
text "remove day" to alsringstatus@gmail.com
