You already know how awesome K1000 Email Alerts are. You can set them up to notify you of anything you want. For example, you might want to know when:
- Workstations don’t have AV installed
- Workstations have torrent, or P2P apps installed
- Servers are running low on available disk space
- New Assets get added to the K1000
Did you ever wanted to be notified via text, instead of email? No problem! While KACE doesn’t specifically support the following, most major cellular providers have email addresses through which to send text messages. Obviously your milage may vary, but I hope this is helpful. Here’s some links that list lots of Email/SMS Gateway formats:
What address should you use when configuring your K1000 to send alerts via text? Generally, the address is the phone number, in front of the @ symbol and domain. For example, phone number 1234567890 using the carrier AT&T might be:
So, simply configure your Email Alerts to send to one or more of your technician’s cell numbers (separated by commas), and you’re all set! Your carrier not listed above? If your carrier supports this method, simply send an MMS/SMS to your own email address to discover your proper cellular address. Note that many carriers have a different address for SMS vs. MMS. Why does that matter? MMS often allows for small attachments, longer messages, and even some basic formatting. This may be useful in some situations.
