    Hi Nicholas - currently it is not possible to integrate your sensors with Slack. Can you tell us a little bit more how you'd like to use this integration? 

     

    We do not have a dev kit available either, but sign up for our developers newsletter and we'll let you know when its ready!

    A simple example would be for alerts.

    I could make a Notion channel in Slack, and hopefully point the alerts in Notion point to it.

    I imagine the easiest implementation would be something pointing at a webhook

    This would allow for any of the alerts that I am currently getting on my phone, to be also sent to a channel in Slack. Is the <door_description> closed? Is the <temp_sensor> alert above or below the threshold?

    Thanks for your example! We'll share this with our product team. Let us know if you have any additional use cases you'd like to see.

    Here's a few more:

    I have one in a beer fridge that monitors temp and if it opens or closes. 

    I have one on a bathroom door. Usually this door stays open unless someone is using it. If it closes, we know it's likely in use.

     

    Other services I'd like to see integrations for:

    Cacti: http://www.cacti.net/

    Zabbix: http://www.zabbix.com/

    Nagios: https://www.nagios.org/

     

    A Nagios integration would be able to fulfill the Slack integration request. I believe the easiest way to accomplish many of these integrations would be for the Bridge to be SNMP enabled, and for Notion to publish a MIB that encompasses all the sensor data or alert states. Between SNMP Polling and SNMP Traps, I would be able to integrate Notion into a lot of other services.
