First of all, many thanks for all the informations I got on these forums.


The question is: is there any way to send push notifications from Netduino?


In my personal project of a automated sprinkler system for my - little - garden, I'd like to send push notifications to the apps (Windows Phone & Windows RT) to notify them that someone (via app or via the buttons on the Netduino box) has done something (or something happened like a timer started).


The apps are ready (they respond to the push notifications sent via the Visual Studio) but I can't understand if Netduino is able to to this.

Have we to wait for the "Netduino SDK for Azure" ?


Thank you

I always thought it was kind of a cool idea, but never had a reason to use it;


Assuming you have internet connectivity, since you mentioned Azure, I suspect you do.


I use MQTT, which probably makes more sense, but not as much fun since I already know it :P

Anything capable of sending http requests can send push notifications. Your app just needs to register a push notification channel, and somehow communicate its URL to your device.
