i was working on a gas sensor for my house and i wanted to sms the results to my cel phone. I dint wat to get a USB cel adaptor.
You can do this over email for free if you have an email acount that uses SMTP.

Read the automation sections to get a grip on how most of this works.

Google your email acount SMTP settings, here is a web page for SMS over email,

here is my code, this is for the gas sensor, im sure you can use it for any sensor:

This code is running one time when program is enabled
public void Setup()

EventHelper.ModuleChangedHandler((o, m, p) =>
EmailHelper.SetupSmtp("********@yahoo.com.com", "**********", "smtp.mail.yahoo.com", 587, true);

// Basement Gas smoke Alarm
if (m.Domain == Domains.VIRTUAL && m.Address == "N2S0" && p.Property == "Sensor.DigitalValue" && p.Value == "1")

EmailHelper.SendEmail("*********@yahoo.com", "**********@vtext.com", "Basement", "Gas or Smoke Detected");

return true;

This code is running periodicaly when program is enabled.
Cron job detirmine running period.
public void Run()

I hope this helps someone, it helped me.
Send any questions and i will try to help.
