SMS integration with Zabbix

Send SMS notifications through the LabsMobile platform integrated with the Zabbix network monitoring system. Configure your Zabbix application to send alerts and notifications via SMS in seconds with LabsMobile.


  • Sending alerts.
  • Sending notifications.


  • Zabbix application installed and running. More information at .
  • A LabsMobile user account. Follow the link below to create a new account: Register.


In the integration with Zabbix the authentication is performed with two parameters:

  • The username of the account to be entered in the username field.
  • The tokenapi to be assigned in the password field. This tokenapi can be generated from the API Settings section of your account.

Recommendation You can generate API tokens from the API Settings of the account. We recommend changing the token frequently and using different tokens for each use, connection or integration.
