How to create an email notification?


#1

Hi,

I have done completely ThingSpeak Temperature Monitor with Raspberry Pi but now I would like to make a notification when the temperature reach 30 degree celcius with smtp. Now, I don’t know how to make the smtp comunicate with the python script. Can you tech me how to make it, John? :slight_smile:

Hey Yapkoloi, so great to hear about this!

We don’t have a great example of how to send an e-mail yet. But I think we should put something up. I will add it to our list of projects and examples to develop.

Hey,
We have done a similar project a while back with the GrovePi which sends an email with a picture from the Raspberry Pi camera when movement is detectect: http://www.dexterindustries.com/GrovePi/projects-for-the-raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-motion-sensing/ . It might be easy enough to take hints and modify the python program so that you can use the email client part of it with your own program.
