  • Using Flic to trigger notification on phone
    Yes, I use Pushover ( ) for this. It’s a $5 one-time purchase, which is an insanely good deal imo. You can set it up as a “critical” alert (I am on iOS) which punches through do-not-disturb settings or sleep. - Source: Reddit / 12 days ago
  • Selfhosted lost item finder - does it exist or should I start a project?
    If you'd like alerts pushed to your devices, it should be possible to get it to work with Pushover . It's a (one time) paid app, but I've found it was worth it, and use it for a number of different things. - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago

  • Monitoring Linux server
    For receiving alerts and notifications, I highly recommend Pushover, which is free for up to 10000 notifications per month. The mobile phone app is a one-time cost of around $5 USD and is well worth it. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • [HELP] Camera Trap Project with Raspberry Pi
    Can be done - cameras are now available for the Pi day and night vision with very very good resolution, detection can be done with a simple PIR sensor through to complex laser traps and sending to shoes / web sites easy.

  • App that makes me share something from iOS and remind me about it when I turn on my MacBook?
    Update: I found it is very similar to pushbullet and costs just 5$ per platform one-time-payment. I get kinda recent updates (iPad App 6 months ago). If you got a Silicon Mac you can run the iPad App on it, so only one purchase. I has some integrations with 3rd party services such as IFTTT, home assistant, and so on. The only thing I am missing is RSS, but I bet this is possible through IFTTT. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

    I've switched from using emails to Pushover instead.
