    Long Shot

    Does anyone know if it is possible to notify homeseer when a bluetooth phone is ringing? Or possibly pass caller ID information to Homeseer when ringing?

    I'm not sure how I could do this... This is an interesting question, and I'll have a look...

    Maybe I could try to emulate a BT headset, and the plugin would get a ringing message ?

        This feature would be sooooooooo nice. I can't tell you the times I havn't heard my cell phone ring becuase I was in another room, or listening to music too loud. If I could detect it ringing, then I could mute the music or whatever.

          Why not use something like this?

          Althought, I suppose if the BT plugin does it...maybe this hardware isn't necessary...? But if it can't do it, this is probably a good solution.

            Yes I agree...I would be great to get the call announced over the HS system. Killer feature!

              the only drawback, is now you would have announcments around the house, but would have to run to find the phone.

              If you had that hardware, just install phones around the house on POTS wire, however DISCONNECTED from POTS, then this acts as your POTS by tunneling the bluetooth voice...

              I thought it was neat, until I wanted to buy more UPB, so I had to make a choice as to HOW I was going to buy stuff for the house.
