What PI component do I need to send email and SMS notifications of equipment alarms and or Trips ??
In addition to the PI Data Archive server, you will need the Asset Framework server with the Notifications component.
In AF Notification, you can setup analyses to detect, store and send email or webservice requests.
SMS notification is not supported directly but you can setup a proxy to receive either email or REST-based webservice to relay messages to SMS.
Email and REST webservice endpoints are supported out of the box.
Link to documentation is here.
There are also some providers that have inboxes to redirect emails to text message. You would have to ask your cell phone provider if they have this setup, otherwise use Jinmo's suggestion!
This has been a common question in AF training classes for years. As Seb said, most cell phone providers have SMS gateways to handle this. The email address is usually of the form <cell phone number>@<sms gateway address>, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org for an AT&T number. More info here: SMS gateway - Wikipedia
We rolled this out a few years ago for critical faults. The service we use is from emailtovoice https://emailtovoice.net/ who work worldwide.
We set up new "contacts" in PI AF with the person's phone number and email to voice domain as their email address, for examle +email@example.com, and then added this new contact to the subscriptions list for the PI Notification.
