    Cisco IP Phone Development

    Hi All,

    So I have cisco 7970 phones in my house and thought they could be a good platform for homeseer interaction, rather than having separate HS touch devices.

    In relation to this plugin/post:
    Is there a sub for this plugin here on the forums? Could not find.

    Except the above plugin requires a cisco CM system? (I could be wrong) so I developed my own since I use asterisk. (App not actually related to or uses asterisk)

    Anyway, I have been developing something very similar for homeseer:

    I have also developed some scrips in PHP that allow dial from computer etc:

    And to display a clock on the default screen:

    I am currently developing a status box for homeseer for the phones.
    I got this idea from other users using LCD screens around the house to display status etc, so why not have it on the phones

    I have been working on these things plus a few other things like events, alerts etc...

    I am asking for some advice, especially from that other developer that made this for homeseer:
    since I developed all this in PHP since I have no knowlage of, and only uses homeseer API and URLs (not an actual plugin)

    So was thinking we could join forces and either I help develop his app, or a new one (remember mine does not need cisco call manager, the reason for creating my own). I need some help creating a plugin for this so it could potentially be releasable.

    Hello! I am the developer (using that term broadly) behind the HS2 IP phone interface. I have replied to your SourceForge message, but wanted to respond here also for others to benefit!

    I am certainly interested in joining forces with anyone else interested in this capability. I have been in the process of porting to an HS3 plugin that will run, so far unsuccessfully. I could either use help fixing my C# code for HS3, or I am happy to port my functionality to anyone else's base code as well moving forward.

    To understand what I have been able to accomplish thus far, the HS2 version of my plugin can be found here:

    My documentation isn't great, but here's a video I had made to show the functionality (starting at 5 minutes in):
