Twilio SMS Alphanumeric Sender ID

I would like to use Alphanumeric Sender ID instead of normal number.

    platform: twilio_sms
    from_number: E164_PHONE_NUMBER

Is it possible to change from_number to be Alphanumeric Sender ID

That would indeed reduce the Twilio costs as no phone number is needed. The Twilio API wants you to replace the “from” number into a “text”. Hassio should therefor also support “text” as the from number.

It would be good to have this change implemented.

I’ve added a PR for allowing Sender IDs here:
