Any way to get email notifications with 2 factor auth on?

The only way I've gotten gmail to work is by using "Allow Less Secure Apps", which I believe is mutually exclusive of 2 factor. 

To reduce personal exposure, I created a "house gmail account", for notifications. I also use it for any iot that needs an email account as credentials.

I see a way to generate a token and use it as your password.  I may try this:

Create a custom app in you Gmail security settings.

1. Log-in into Gmail with your account
2. Navigate to https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords
3. In 'select app' choose 'custom', give it an arbitrary name and press generate
4. It will give you 16 chars token.

Use the token as password in combination with your full Gmail account and two factor authentication will not be required.

This account is only for the ISY so may just disable 2FA.

Yes, but you will likely still need to disable ‘less secure’ access, since the ISY is sending a username and password (over TLS) rather than using oAuth to authenticate.

Best advise is above. Use a separate gmail account for ISY to use. It’s free!
