How to use mobile phone as pager

I've been trialing sonoff for a couple of weeks. This is my first foray into the internet of things and it's proving to be a pretty underwhelming experience. I am looking for a solution whereby if a PIR detects something, it rings an alarm for several seconds on my phone, like a pager. That's it. That's all I'm looking for (initially at least), and I'm quite surprised how difficult it is proving to achieve.


I am currently using IFTTT to play a beeper sound when Ewelink receives an alarm notification. This works after a fashion but the notification system is inherently too slow and too unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'd like something that works just on wifi so it doesn't have to rely on an internet connection.


Just wondering if anyone knows of such a solution? Thanks.
