Alright, I'm doing work on the telecom section of LMCE in another thread and came up with the idea to have a phone orbiter using an IVR. I'd like to discuss this a bit as I don't see it as something that people would want to use to control everything in their house, but more of a thing where you are in a remote location and in a pinch. I think we'd need to create a module for asterisk to do this properly. The module will need to be able to send messages to LMCE and generate an IVR by getting scenarios from the database. Obviously you would want to have the IVR masked in a seperate extension where you would need to use your pin code to access the orbiter so that would cover the process of choosing a user. So the structure could go something like
--List scenarios for the selected category and execute the selected scenario
Can I get some feedback on this idea and development advice? I need to solve some other issues regarding the upgrade of FreePBX before I'm ready to dig into this too deeply, but I'd like some advice on moving forward. I think it can be done entirely with an asterisk module without the need to modify any LMCE code to support the feature.
