  • Caller ID with homeseer - UK

    I'm trying to get caller ID working with homeseer. I have tried a few different modems but always have the same problem

    If I connect directly to the modem in hperterminal I can see the CID info, but if I use another application like YAKSeer then i don't get any info at all.

    Does anyone in the uk have a solution which works?

    I'm pretty sure the CID protocol is the same in the UK as it is in the US, except that the data is transmitted in the UK before the first right, whereas in the US it is sent between the first and second rings.

    What kind of modem are you using?

    You may want to try SnevlCID (http://board.homeseer.com/showpost.p...95&postcount=1), it's free, and I try pretty hard to get it working for people.

    There are several UK SnevlCID users here on the board. Many use the CTI Meteor, although it is a bit expensive. The Meteor also has the added feature of reporting out-bound calls, so SnevlCID keeps a log of those for you that you can look at on the web.

      Cheers Steve, I'll give it a try.

      I've tried about 5 modems, currently have a cheapy usb jobby I got off ebay.

      I'll try yours and let you know how I get on.

      I also have a Windows 7 media centre, and I wanted to display the caller id on this, from the single modem in in homeseer pc, is this possible with your app??

        Wouldn't be hard. You'd need to install an add-on to Media Center (I'd suggest VMC Controller, here: http://vmccontroller.codeplex.com/). SnevlCID can trigger an event whenever there is a call, and you can send a pop-up message to MediaCenter as part of that event. I'd be happy to help.

        I'd suggest we not discuss SnevlCID here, but rather over in the discussion thread for SnevlCID: http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=133635)

            Codey Im using a way2call which does callerid, I also have a netcallerid box (thanks Blade) that does callerid, I also have an old Hal modem which does callerid so there are options.

              I've now installed Steve's SnevlCID plug-in, which works perfectly and even sends the numbers to my Media centre
