  • Utilize Homeseer on Polycom Phone?

    I use FreePBX with a polycom IP450 phone that has an LCD display that is just begging to have homeseer info being displayed. I am not looking to control anything, but want to be able to see things like device status and outside temps.

    Is anyone else doing something like this? I have tried to push a website to the screen, but that has failed as well.

    Can you push an image (jpg) to the screen?

    Cheers

      I am pretty sure I can as the background is a jpg. I would just need to figure out a couple things
      - How to create a dynamic jpg that changes (have no idea how to do this)
      - Figure out a host location that I can direct the screen to (I can figure this out)

        jon00 has a utility that can create an image from a web-page. I use it to create images from HS info that I display on my Squeezebox Radios. I host the pictures on a web server that runs on a Qnap NAS, rather than the HS web-server, but they could be hosted on the HS server as well.

        Cheers

              You can make things much prettier with a new VVX600 phone. I'm about to replace the IP550 phone on my desk with a VVX600 (courtesy of my company's Polycom rep!) It has a really nice color touch display and an API. I think I'll look into writing a script that pushes info out to the phone display. If I do I'll post it.

                  Would be great if you could control HS events/devices as well from soft buttons on the screen. Does the API support that?

                  Cheers

                    The soft keys are programmable. The method differs by Polycom model, but you as far as I know on any SoundPoint or VVX you can have a soft key call a URL.

                      Thanks, so should be able to control HS with a json command or calling a custom asp.

                        Can you give your script? I have a Polycom IP335 phone, and would love to do something like this!
