The only thing the .syscommands file have to have is the path to the mail script, like:

/som/path/where/the/script/is/mail.bash

Don't forget that the script has to be executable of course.

Can you actually send mail via the script? I.e by just typing at the prompt:

> /whole/path/to/the/script/mail.bash

Do you see any info in the log-files - /var/log/mail.*?

Aah, sorry, I just checked out his script and it looks a bit different than my own that I'm writing ;). He's using

system('echo "' + self.config.message + '" | mail -s "' + self.config.subject + '" ' + email);

while I'm calling a bash-script with this command. I then put by bash script in .syscommands. In that case I actually don't know if echo and mail has to be in .syscommands. I wouldn't think so but you never know ;), you can always try to add them and see what happens. No info in the z-way log?

Hi,

I am new to this, I have a email notification script working by executing the python script. I want to create and event in z-wave smart home to run this python script.

Thank you

I believe your python script needs to be in an executable path, like /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin. I also believe it needs to be executable by anyone.

The script file name also needs to be added to the .syscommand file located in /opt/z-way-server/automation. If your python script uses any bash commands, it would be safe to add those to the .syscommand file as well.
