Schneider StruxureWare SMS alarms – integration manual

Here we describe how to use SMSEagle for Schneider StruxureWare SMS notifications & alarms. The following manual can be used both for Automation Server and Enterprise Server. Setup is easy and should take 5-10min to complete. No connection or maintenance to 3rd party systems required. All alarms are generated on premise and sent directly to 3G/4G cellular network. This solution can be used in secure installations without Internet access.

 

 

SMSEagle Setup

This integration will use Email To SMS plugin (see details: Email To SMS plugin). This plugin is included in each version of SMSEagle device.

  • Enable Email2SMS plugin in SMSEagle web-gui

Where:
PHONE_NUMBER is a destination phone number

SMSEagle as SMTP Server (optional)

For sending e-mail messages you can use SMTP server installed on the SMSEagle device. In this scenario your email from Schneider StruxureWare will be directly sent to SMSEagle (without using any external email servers). The configuration of SMTP server in StruxureWare should be as follows:

  • SMTP host: IP address of your device
  • SMTP port: 25
  • Authentication: SMSEagle SMTP server doesn’t require authentication
  • Encryption: none

SMTP server on the SMSEagle device will accept messages addressed for it only. The other messages will be rejected.
