Note: Updated information is available for setting up Pushover and using new features specific to the Funnel Cake release of the CGM Remote Monitor (Nightscout site). See Pushover in Funnel Cake for more information.
Pushover is a service that allows Nightscout to push messages to iOS, Android, and desktops in a very reliable way.
The initial integration is ONLY related to the new Care Portal feature, with this integration a push notification will be sent using pushover to your, phone, pebbles, and desktops.
Later we expect Pushover to be used for other notifications.
To get started install the Pushover application on your iOS or Android device and create an account.
Using that account login to Pushover, in the top left you’ll see your User Key, you’ll need this plus an application API Token/Key to complete this setup.
You’ll need to Create a Pushover Application. You only need to set the Application name, ignore all the other settings. If you only have 1 Nightscout site name the Application “Nightscout,” if you have multiple site (2 T1 kids, etc) you can create 2 Application with the other names (kids’s names) to make it more clear who the notification is for.
With those 2 key you’ll need to set 2 environment variables, just like you do for your Mongo URI.
The environment variables are named
- PUSHOVER_USER_KEY – This at the top left of the pushover site after you login
- PUSHOVER_API_TOKEN – Get this from the Pushover application you created above
When you have those complete, your Azure Configure screen should look something like this:
