I don't want to break the bank with one of those outrageously overpriced (on the local market) Adafruit Fona modules hoping that they will work.
EasyIoT is not the culprit here but rather the Raspberry itself or the Raspbian because the same unreliabile behavior is exhibited with gammu-smsd as well. The modes work flawless on some Orange Pi boards but I can only test the gammu-smsd reliability as while EasyIoT app runs on Armbian just fine, there's no reference on how to wire the NRF24L01+ modules on the Orange Pi's GPIO pins.
So I'm left with the option of calling and external resource (eg. ssh on an OrangePi and use its gammu-smsd instance) by either a cronjob that would parse the EasyIoT logs, or create an automation program that would be able to call external resources and accomplish the same thing but in realtime rather that using a cronjob running every minute.
I know that the syntax is C#, however since I'm no programmer, I'm totally clueless on how the code snippet should look like. If it's even possible.
