1. Introduction
You can configure push notifications for your ASUSTOR NAS using either Pushbullet or Pushover, which provide push notification services over networks. These services are available on multiple devices, across different platforms and major Web browsers. When designated system events occur, notifications can be instantly pushed to your phone, mobile device or PC.

2. Configuring Push Notifications

2.1 Configuring push notifications using Pushbullet
Please make sure you have registered for the Pushbullet service at the official website (www.pushbullet.com) before you begin.

Note: Pushbullet free accounts (without a Pro subscription) are limited to 500 pushes per month. Going over will result in an error when sending a Push.

Fill out the following information as shown below in Figure 1:


Type: Select “Pushbullet” from the drop-down menu.
Device name: Enter a name of your choice.
Access Token: Enter the access token that you have created from the Pushbullet website. For more information on how to do this please see Figure 2 below.
Enable Push Notification service: Select this checkbox to enable push notifications and then select the relevant checkboxes below for the level of events that you want to be notified of (Information, Warning, Error, Critical).

Click on [OK] once you have filled out all the relevant information. Pushbullet notifications should now have been successfully configured.
