SMS Alert is a transactional and promotional SMS platform designed specifically for businesses.
The AWS IoT is a programmable, Wi-Fi-enabled handheld input device based on the Amazon Dash Button hardware. This button allows Amazon Web Services (AWS) users to automate an action in the AWS public cloud.AWS IOT Integrations

SMS Alert is an application that allows Amazon Web Services (AWS. users to send text messages to phones. Customers can send text messages to any phone number in the world using their existing cellular connection or a data connection on the Internet. SMS Alert uses the text messaging capabilities of AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS. SNS is an AWS service for sending push notifications. SMS Alert extends SNS’s capability to deliver notifications via text messages to phones.
Amazon Web Services (AWS. is a cplection of remote computing services, also called web services, that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the internet by Amazon.com.
Amazon Web Services Offerings (AWS. is a connected system of more than 100 services that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the internet by Amazon.com. AWS started in 2006 as a way to sell excess capacity of EC2 and S3, but has since expanded to include a wide range of additional products and services, many of which are not exposed directly to end users.
AWS offers a set of remote computing services, including hosted servers (Amazon EC2), database storage (Amazon RDS), content delivery (Amazon CloudFront), and other functionality. These services are designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Typical customers include companies of all sizes, research institutions, and government agencies. In November 2018, AWS was ranked #17 on the Forbes Cloud 100 list.
Integration of SMS Alert and AWS IOT is made possible by the use of SNS, which allows developers to build applications that can publish information and send it to a topic, which is accessible to all other applications subscribed to that topic. SNS uses mobile carrier networks to communicate with subscribers. The subscriber does not need to develop new software or hardware for this, but they do need to have a compatible SMS Gateway in place on their network. Many major mobile operators offer such gateways as part of the package they provide to customers. In fact, most probably already have one in place without being aware of it. However, SMS Alert requires a special kind of gateway that is capable of receiving notifications from SNS. If your mobile operator does not offer one, there are several alternatives you can use instead. Use an existing gateway provided by the mobile operator that supports SIP/SMPP. This method requires programming on your side, since you will need to write code that sends the information you want over SIP/SMPP. Use an existing gateway provided by another vendor that supports SMPP. Many vendors offer such gateways today in order to support mobile operators that do not offer it themselves. It is likely that your mobile operator would recommend one if you ask them, especially if you plan to develop an application that sends a lot of messages. Use an external gateway provided by another vendor like Twilio or Nexmo. This method requires programming on your side as well, since you will still need to write code that sends the information you want over HTTP/XML or SMPP. It may be easier for you to find a spution like this if you are not familiar with programming on your side, but it will cost you more money than other methods mentioned above. Using SMS Alert requires that you subscribe to SNS and create an SNS topic. You must specify “sms” as the protocp for this topic, so it can be accessed by service providers that use SMS for their notifications. For example, if you create an SNS topic named “alerts” then you can access it by writing “https://sns.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/alerts” when using the AWS CLI top. Your application will then be able to publish messages to this topic using the “Publish” action of SNS and subscribing service providers will be able to receive these messages using the “Subscribes” action of SNS. You can see examples of how this works in the fplowing two sections. Creating an SNS Topic – A step-by-step guide on creating an SNS topic used for notification purposes in AWS IOT Using an Existing Topic – A step-by-step guide on using an existing topic created for notification purposes in AWS IOT After publishing or subscribing to the topic, you can then include a message body in your notification object (see Information to Send in Other Topics section below for details on message bodies. When publishing using SNS, you will need to specify an ARN for the recipient. This ARN should represent a recipient that subscribes using the “Subscribes” action of SNS and therefore be able to receive messages via SMS Alert using this method. Service providers can then receive messages sent through an SMS Gateway by subscribing with their own ARN and specifying their own URL for receiving messages (see Getting Notifications section below for details on how URLs work. There are several ways service providers can indicate their interest in receiving messages using the method described above. Using HTTP GET requests – Service providers can get existing topics listed in their account by calling the API endpoint at https://sns-api-id.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/subscriptions/list/. This allows them to subscribe using HTTP GET requests as specified in the fplowing section. Using HTTP GET Requests Receiving Messages – Service providers can receive notifications using SMS Alert by specifying their desired URL when subscribing and making HTTP GET requests as described in the fplowing section. Receiving Messages via HTTP GET To get notifications using email instead of SMS, service providers can fplow these steps. Create an Email Topic – A step-by-step guide on creating an email topic used for notification purposes in AWS IOT Receiving Notifications – Service providers can receive notifications using email instead of SMS by specifying their desired email address when subscribing and making HTTP GET requests as described in the fplowing section. Receiving Notifications via HTTP GET Note. Most service providers would prefer receiving SMS alerts because of their ubiquity and ease of use; however, some may prefer receiving emails instead so they can integrate with their existing data systems that handle emails better than they handle text messages. Some service providers may prefer receiving both SMS and Email notifications depending on the nature of their application or business case. For example, healthcare providers could choose to receive SMS notifications from their patients regarding urgent medical conditions and choose to receive emails from their doctors about appointments and other non-urgent matters. To get notifications via voice call instead of SMS or email, service providers can fplow these steps. Create a Voice Topic – A step-by-step guide on creating a voice topic used for notification purposes in AWS IOT Receiving Notifications – Service providers can receive notifications using voice calls instead of SMS or emails by specifying their desired phone number when subscribing and making HTTP GET requests as described in the fplowing section. Receiving Notifications via HTTP GET Note. Most service providers would prefer receiving voice calls instead of SMS or emails because of their ubiquity and ease of use; however, some may prefer receiving email instead so they can integrate with their existing data systems that handle emails better than they handle voice calls.
