Considering switching from Telegram to the HA Companion app for critical alerts (alarm system).
I currently don’t run my cameras through HA but use the FTP addon to dump images there along with the folder watcher integration to trigger an image send. Currently me and Mrs are in the same Telegram group as the bot sending the images.
I understand that to dump Telegram my HA will have to host the file for the phones to download which would be fine, but I want to delete the image as soon as possible after it’s pushed to the phones so my HA isn’t full of clutter. How does everyone deal with this? I mean I can’t bake in the image delete as it might get deleted before the second phone receives the image, or worse, before either phone downloads it.
