I'm curious as to how you did the "Phone alerts on specific emails". I'm currently setting my raspberry pi up as a motion detector (we were burgled 2 weeks ago)... and while I can do the motion & send out the email, I really want my phone to go nuts when it gets the alert email (mostly I have notifications turned off).

Any hints appreciated! I'm also experimenting with Telegram, which I think will also solve my issue.

Twillio and Amazon (SNS, I think) are dirt cheap and easy to use (at that non-scale).

Seconded. Whenever I need an extremely visible notification, I have Twilio literally give me a phone call.
