Phone number trigger


Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of a way that when a person drives up to your display they call a number (maybe a Google number) and it would trigger the display ??????

It would be awesome that when they drive up they could even choose the show they wanted.

Depends on what kind of phone service you have. With old style POTS lines you could use either an old fax modem and hack it - there are a lot of recipes on the internet or if you want to go fancy use something like this: http://broadcasttools.com/view_product.php?pid=212

The second half seems to be cut off:

If you use VOIP and asterisk there are for sure possibilities to add a script to trigger something else. There are also several systems in the HomeAutomation world allowing to do this.

Last but not least - in a world of smart phones, it would also possible to direct people to a web page where they can select songs. If you search the forum you will find some old thread discussing this topic.

So - yes, absolutely doable.
