[Freeswitch-users] Desktop phone - answer a ringing call via API call

Hi Michael, list,

that's the point.

I would really appreciate a solution for that "problem".

We're using FreeSwitch in an callcenter environment and people used to handle the calls through some kind of CTI interface before we switched to FreeSWITCH. So it would be great to have this feature. But there's no possibility to control Polycom phones that way.

Hints on this topic are welcome!

Thanks and best regards


Btw.: FreeSWITCH rocks! It's so flexible, unbelievable.

This would be a function of the phone. AFAICT, Polycom does not have a Webby way of doing this. However, I think Brian West has a bead on using the expansion port along with an Arduino board to do some manual/remote control of the phone. If anyone has more information on remote controlling Polycoms (or any other phones, for that matter) please let us know.

Hi all,

Is there a way to answer a ringing desktop phone (Polycom Soundpoint IP 560) via api command ?

I tried with SendMsg <uuid> and 'answer' application, but it's not want I need/want.

Thanks and best regards,
