Overview:

Twilio will allow you to send SMS messages from your Hubitat Hub.

Visit twilio.com to get an account and that gives you an Account SID and Auth Token (long long random letters and numbers.) and a unique phone number.

On Hubitat, create one (or more) virtual device(s) and assign it the Twilio driver.

Paste in the two Tokens from creating a Twilio account. Save.

Select the Phone number to send from and type the phone number to send to. Save.

Use the Twilio device(s) in Rules and Apps to send notifications.
