SMS Automation

Depending on how youโ€™re sending messages, you have a few options:

From an Android phone, Tasker is a good option. Itโ€™s not the easiest program to use, however it is very powerful and allows for some crazy automations on your phone in general. A script can be created that will send an SMS via your standard SMS application.

While I donโ€™t remember the specifics, I believe there are ways to get Tasker scripts to trigger from an external source.

Purely from a computer, you could look at using a VOIP service that offers messaging. A non-exhaustive list includes:

  • Twilio. I have used this in the past and itโ€™s worked fairly well for the low volumes Iโ€™ve sent.
  • Vonage
  • Plivo
