    hello all,
    thats my first message.

    The question is, i have a surveilance program in windows, webcamxp and i want to make a call whenever motion is detected.
    WebcamXP allows you to run a program when motion is detected.
    So, is there a way to make a phonecall with a prerecorded message, to a certain phone number, maybe from command prompt?
    I suppose it can be done, it's simmilar to the calendar in elastix, where you insert the time and the prerecorded message, and it calls you back at that time.

    Thanks.

    Hi there

    It is possible, but you have to integrate a function (programming involved) that when a trigger is activated, it initiates a call to a preprogrammed number,(similar to the agenda function).

    In other words, it is a speed dial number activated from an external program, with a prerecorded message.

    I am not a programmer, but as a user and administrator this initial ideas can help.
