How to enable SMS push from Synology NAS

Please excuse my ignorance if this is a stupid question, but is it possible to send an SMS message from a third-party application using our RingCentral account?

I would like our Synology NAS to be able to send SMS from our office to my personal cell phone when there is a problem with the network. In the NAS operating system (DSM 7.1), there is a feature that will push SMS messages to any phone using an SMS account. I don't think it is possible to send it through the RingCentral windows app.

In order to do this, I need a URL for RingCentral's SMS service and I need to know whether it uses a GET or POST http protocol. I assume that the login and password would be the same as for my RingCentral account.

Is this information I can get from RingCentral or is it not available?

Hello David

This is not a stupid question at all, and is a very valid use case. A lot of our customers are using our open platform, and integrating with 3rd party services for the use case you mentioned.

So short answer is that Yes, RingCentral supports it. All details on our developer platform and specifically SMS can be found here:

You can use your RingCentral account(i.e. same credentials) and login to and access even use API reference to try it out with your phone number. Let us know how it went.
