ncid-notify — send a NCID notification to your Android or iOS device


ncid --no-gui --program ncid-notify


The ncid-notify is a NCID notification program that uses NMA (Notify My Android), Prowl, or both NMA and Prowl It displays the Caller ID or message on a Android device, a iOS device, or one of each.


The ncid-notify output module is configured in ncid-notify.conf.


This sets the NCID message types ncid-page will send. The different types are CID, OUT, HUP, BLK, WID, MSG, PID, and NOT.

Default: notify_types="CID OUT HUP BLK MSG"


If MSG is added to PageTypes and you are using the rn2ncid gateway, you must configure reject in the rn2ncid.conf file to avoid sending the message back to NCID

If you want to send notification only when a ring count is reached, configure ring by creating a ncid_notify variable in ncid.conf

See ncid-notify.conf for the complete list of variables and descriptions.
