Liebert Nform SMS alerts – integration manual
Here we describe how to setup Liebert Nform with SMSEagle for SMS alerts and notifications.
SMSEagle is an offline hardware SMS gateway. Therefore no external connection to 3rd party system is required. All notifications are generated on-premise and sent directly to a cellular network. This solution can be used in secure installations without Internet access.
This integration will use Email To SMS plugin (see details: Email To SMS plugin). .
1. Enable Email2SMS plugin in SMSEagle web-GUI
