SMS Node

The SMS Node allows a workflow to send SMS messages using Losant provided SMS delivery.

Important

This node will also not send SMS messages that cost more than 6 cents (see Twilio SMS Prices CSV).

We intend for Losant Developers to use this node for testing and/or proof of concept applications. For full production applications, we recommend the Twilio Node. Using the Twilio Node will allow for a unique number for your application, no rate limiting, message history, and more benefits that Twilio provides.

SMS Node

Node Properties

The SMS Node has the basic configuration properties needed to send an SMS message:

  • Phone Number (Required): The phone number of the recipient
  • Message Contents(Required): The contents of the message

Both fields support string templates, and so can be dynamically determined from the payload of the currently executing workflow.

Node Example

SMS Node Config

In the example above, the phone number being sent to is (212) 867-5309 and the contents of the message to being sent to that phone number will be Power level exceeded error threshold at {{ data.power }}! (where {{ data.power}} will be replaced with the current value of data.power in the payload).

Node Throttling and Limits

This node is rate limited to one SMS message every five minutes per workflow (bursts of up to 10 allowed). If more frequent or complex SMS messages are required, please use the Twilio Node.
