Forums : Recommendations for a DTFM - SIP system
This page last changed on Nov 26, 2009 by benn686.
Everything I've read about PBX systems seem to be geared for voice use (mailboxes, call forwarding, caller id, etc). I haven't been able to find much in terms of using it for home automation.
I've got a VOIP adapter that I use with Google Voice / Gizmo5 for sending and receiving calls, but I'd like to setup a system such that I can call, and have an automated menu (dtfm touchtone control) that I can use to turn on and off things at home.
I understand X-10 is the big hardware player in town for this kind of stuff, but what else would I need? Could a PBX like freeswitch, connect to an SIP account with Gizmo5 or SIP Sorcerer, and control X10 devices? Is MisterHouse and Zoneminder just internet aware versions of FireCracker?
BTW, I'm not tied to having to use a PBX.. its just the only way I can think of... are there other ways to do home automation that can be controlled thru a phone call?
