Duet to send emails?



  • Good morning, reading the various messages I've read that there's no "native" option in RFF to make duet to send email after various event occurs (start print, end, pause etc.). I have a Raspberry in the same printer's WiFi already "speaking" with the printer itself for timelapses. Is there some software to install on raspberry wich would allow me to have emails sent according to printer event? I've read that there's a sort of beta bot for telegram but to be honest it doesn't look so good...is there some option?

    Thanks!



  • @the_dragonlord this node red dashboard would do what you wanted. https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/18520/node-red-mobile-sized-status-dashboard-for-duet?_=1606471526776
    There's be a bit more "work" for you to do to add the emails in but as node red already supports sending emails it shouldn't be too difficult.

    I'm not an expert and I don't know node red at all... I'll give it a read, thanks



  • Hi @the_dragonlord, I'm the author of the NodeRed Mobile dashboard. Happy to help with any questions you have etc, but I thought it might be worthwhile explaining how it works, as it may not be the ideal candidate for the scenario you describe.

    The NodeRed dashboard pulls information from the DSF http rest api at a pre-defined polling interval (5 secs by default). This is fine for status monitoring (temps etc), but not for event monitoring. If the event you wish to monitor happens in-between the polling interval, there is a significant probability that by the time the next polling is completed the event information has been cleared/overwritten by another event, which could result in missing the required event entirely.

    Can I suggest you have a look at MQTT4DSF as an alternative. Amongst other things, it can monitor user specified events and send MQTT msgs when triggered. You can then use any rules engine (including NodeRed) to monitor for those MQTT msgs and trigger another set of actions (ie send an email).

    Hope this helps.
