Our SMS alarm control app Alarmhandler ships today in version 3.4.2 on Android. If you’re using on iOS or just using Alarmhandler on Android to only control IP cameras, then you don’t need to worry about the change.
In our new update, we’ve totally removed the “Send SMS” permission from the app, so you don’t have to give this permission under Settings-Alarm anymore. Just open the Alarmhandler app and try to tap the refresh button in order to request status from your SMS alarm. This will form an SMS that is ready to send to your alarm to request status. You will be asked what app should be used to send the SMS. Choose always to use the “Messaging” app (this will avoid the prompt in the future). The Messaging app opens up with the prefilled SMS. Just tap send. You can now go back to the Alarmhandler app.

Our SMS alarm control app Alarmhandler ships today in version 3.4.1. Due to changes in Google Play most SMS alarm apps will stop working as of January 2019. If you want to continue using your SMS alarm with an app, you need to look for an updated app such as Alarmhandler. It’s been updated to conform with the new Google Play restrictions. In addition, Alarmhandler is now also fully translated into German.
