    This plugin is in beta, though each version is thoroughly tested, you may encounter bugs. This is due to the nature of the number of possible scenarios which may be encountered with a plugin of this nature.​

    • Send a SMS directly from your server, choose which number to send it to, or define an owner number and provide a quick method for specific staff to send an urgent SMS to the owner directly from the server.
    ** I am not responsible for any fees incurred by using this plugin, applicable SMS rates apply based on your carrier. Twilio will charge a monthly fee for your virtual number (usually 1-2 USD) in addition to $0.015 per SMS (Twilio setup described below). See for complete pricing. **​
