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.
