# Pushsafer Binding

The Pushsafer binding allows you to notify mobile devices of a message using the Pushsafer API (opens new window). To get started you first need to register (a free process) to get a Private Key. Initially you have to register a device with one of the client apps (opens new window), to get a device id.

# Supported Things

There is only one Thing available - the pushsafer-account. You are able to create multiple instances of this Thing to broadcast to different devices or groups with push-notification content and setting.
