Looking for a device to send recorded messages over phone line via ethernet control.
I need a box or program to accomplish the following:
1.Server is made aware of an event.
2.Using TCP/IP over ethernet, place a call to one of several (4-10) phone numbers.
3.When phone is answered, play one of several pre-recorded voice messages.
Background: We have a customer who used a Sensaphone
to monitor temperature. Whenever the temp would go out of range, this machine would place a local call and play a recorded message. Part of our solution for them was that our software would monitor temperature, keep a log of it, and if limits were exceeded, set off the sensaphone using an LT200 relay controller.
This uses an ethernet connection to pick or drop a relay which is a switch for the Sensaphone. This worked fine, so we offered this to other customers.
Problem- LT200 is no longer being sold. I can find other devices that are ethernet-controlled relay drivers, but was asked to find something that combines the two. Searching for ethernet and phone brings up mostly VoIP, but I don't need a phone at my end or long distance. I'm looking for something more like voice mail in reverse.
