Authentication

Twilio uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Twilio account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Twilio APIs in both code and no-code steps.

  1. Create an API key in Twilio. There are two types of keys: Master and Standard. You'll need a Master key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts. If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard key.

  2. After creating your key, you'll see an Sid and Secret. Enter those in the fields below.

  3. Visit your Twilio Dashboard. You'll see your Account SID listed near the top. Enter that in the AccountSid field below.

How Our Family Uses SMS and Smart Picture Frames to Connect During Remote Holidays
Two days before Thanksgiving, I decided to put together a simple way for our family to share pictures, because we couldn’t be together in person. The idea: smart photo frames that everyone could text pictures to. Here’s how I got it working. tldr; A Pipedream workflow parses SMS messages sent to a Twilio phone number, extracting the pictures and then using SendGrid to email them to the dedicated email addresses used by our Pix-Star photo frames.
