in the near future I have to switch from my currently used ISDN telephone system to something IP based.This might be a good moment to replace the telephone system with something which integrates well in openhab (information about in- and outgoing calls, trigger rules by calls, initiate calls by openHAB).
First choice would probably a Asterisk server, as a binding exists. But to be honest, I would prefer not to have to learn who to install and administer such a serve. Therefore I would prefer a preinstalled appliance (e.g. starface) or a ready to install telephone system.
A must is the possibility to connect a analog phone and fax, an internal ISDN port would be nice. In addition a would need a internal SIP server for my Mobotix T24.
I would also prefer to be able to be able to install firmware updates myself. Currently I have an elmeg ICT88 and the vendor does not release firmware updates to end customers. In my view this is not practicable for a system connect to the internet.
Thanks for your help in advance, any recommendation is very much appreciated!
I imported a container load of stuff from Germany into Australia and dropped AVM FritzBox 7430 in as well, because of the QH binding and what can be done with it.
The first thing I had to discover: it does not allow the installation of an English language interface!
I then went and bought a 7490 – the onyl one available in AU, and now I am hearing no Telnet install possible.
It looks like these clowns are locking the box down, thus making it useless for an OH integration.
Now I am all ears – before I even use the 7490 (maybe sell it) – what to use to enable VOIP with OH integration…
Currently I have a Fritzbox for connecting my Mobotix T24, not as internet router. But to be honest, I do not like it very much for various reasons, although the openHAB Integration works very well. For my telephony system I am looking for a solution with a bit more flexibility and possibilities, but maybe I just do not know the Fritzbox well enough.
The tr64 binding should work with the Fritzbox, even when the telnet interface is disabled.
