Already out-of-town and forgot to put the house in vacation mode?
Want to warm up the hot tub from your mobile phone before you get home?
Need to make sure you turned on the security flood lights while away
You can even use Indigo and Phlink to call your mobile or office phone to remotely notify you of emergencies, such as motion detected alarms, power failures, or pipes freezing.
How it Works
Ovolab Phlink (and the Ovolab Telephone Adapter) automatically answers telephone calls and identifies the caller using Caller ID. Not only does Phlink then record the call onto your Mac like an answering machine, but it can also listen to touch tone key sequences that are pressed.
The Indigo Phlink scripts process these touch tone key sequences and communicate with Indigo to dynamically build and speak (using speech synthesis) a menu based on your home control setup. Indigo, using INSTEON or X10 technology, then controls lights, appliances, and much more, throughout your house.
Sound complicated? We have made it easy! Once you have Phlink and
Indigo just install the scripts below. Then, from within Indigo you
can use the option Display in remote UI (available
inside the Action Group and Device dialogs) to specify which Action
Groups and Devices should be available over the telephone.
Copy the phlink call out attachment.scpt
file into your Indigo Attachments folder. This attachment script defines
two AppleScript functions,
MakeEmergencyCallToNumber() and MakeEmergencyCall(),
which can be called from any Indigo Trigger or Time/Date Action to
automatically have Phlink call your mobile or office phone in an emergency.
