When someone texts your Voxtelesys DID, this script creates a Matrix room named with the sender's number, posts their SMS in it, and invites you (the users in config.json) to the room. When someone posts a message in the room this script sends it as an SMS to the original sender. Back and forth it goes!
git clone https://source.netsyms.com/Netsyms/matrix-bridge-voxtelesys /opt/matrix-bridge-voxtelesys cd /opt/matrix-bridge-voxtelesys cp config.example.json config.json nano config.json npm install adduser --system --no-create-home matrix-bridge-voxtelesys cp matrix-bridge-voxtelesys.service /etc/systemd/system systemctl enable matrix-bridge-voxtelesys systemctl start matrix-bridge-voxtelesys
Or just run
Here's what the various config options mean.
homeserver: Matrix homeserver.
mediaurlpath: The public HTTP url for accessing media sent by a Matrix user. The parts in curly brackets will be replaced with the proper values. Check what to set the domain to by right-clicking a media file in Element.
matrixdomain: The part after the @ in your username.
matrixuser: Bot account username for this bridge.
matrixpass: Bot account password.
inviteusers: List of users that the bot will invite to new SMS rooms.
smsapikey: Voxtelesys SMS API key.
smsfrom: Default DID. Outgoing SMS will be sent from this number.
smsonlyto: List of DIDs this bridge should handle incoming SMS from.
listenport: HTTP port for webhook endpoint server.
publicurl: Public URL of this bridge's built-in HTTP server.
loglevel: debug, info, or error.
smsinterval: Bridge will poll Voxtelesys API every X seconds. Set to 0 to use webhook only.
In the Voxtelesys Portal, go to APIs -> Messaging Applications. Edit your application and set HTTP Method to "POST", Events to "Inbound messages (MOs)", MO Webhook to "http://bridge-url:8069/webhook", and Authentication to "None".
Starting a new conversation
When a SMS is received from a new number, a new room is created. If you need to send a message to
a new number, simply type something like
!sms 14065551234 into an existing SMS room. You'll be
invited to join a new room and will then be able to send your message.
- If you leave a room the bot won't invite you back, even if there are new SMS messages.
- Any messages posted in a Matrix room while the bot is offline will not be relayed to SMS when it comes back.
- Only unread SMS are fetched, so if anything else is checking the API this bot won't get those.
- If it crashes try the latest Node.js LTS (v14 as of commit date)
