Hey Guys,
I wanted to show you my latest little project, a cigar humidor that regulates humidity automatically and sends me E-Mail notifications when configured conditions are met. I described the project with pictures on my blog:
http://dbrenk.blogspot.de/p/humidor-20.html

But apart from showing off I also want to help everyone who wants to add E-Mail functionality to their thingspeak project. When I started, I searched the net and also this forum but couldnĀ“t find a good explanation on how to add e-mail notifications. So I figured out a working configuration and wrote a how-to myself, its available at:
http://dbrenk.blogspot.de/2015/03/connecting-thingspeakcom-to.html

And here the short form:
configuration:

1. configure a pushingbox.com scenario
subject: Humidor 2.0 Daily Update - $hum$
body: Humidity: $hum$ Temperature: $temp$
2. configure a ThingHttp - action on thingspeak.com
name: Humidor 2.0 Daily Update
url: http://api.pushingbox.com/pushingbox
method: POST
Content Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
HTTP Version: 1.1
body: devid=[deviceIDfrompushingbox]&hum=%%channel_24484_field_2%%&temp=%%channel_24484_field_1%%
3. configure a TimeControl - trigger on thingspeak.com
configure the time/interval needed
action: ThingHTTP
select profile: Humidor 2.0 Daily Update
explanation:
pushingbox.com -> $hum$ and $temp$ are the variables, that we submit via HTTP POST from thingspeak
thingspeak.com -> [deviceIDfrompushingbox] the id identifies the configured scenario on pushingbox
thingspeak.com -> %%channel_24484_field_2%% - variable from channel
thingspeak.com -> %%channel_24484_field_1%% - variable from channel

I hope this helps some of you Cool

Hi,

Thanks for sharing this project! I'll try to remember to refer people to your blog post if they ask for email notifications via ThingSpeak. Hopefully we'll get around to adding notifications directly into our codebase in the future.
