    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone had experience of doing automated paging announcements with 3CX?

    Our fire alarm system is linked up to our door access system. When a fire alarm goes off it triggers an action in the door access system. What I would like to do, is when that action is triggered, for it to call a paging group in 3CX and play an automated message.

    From the door access system, the trigger can be an external application that is called.

    Wondered if anyone had any ideas on how to achieve this? Maybe utilising 3rd party software to link with 3CX?

    Thanks

    Tom

    We have an enhanced HTTP REST API that allows you to make a call, play a wav file, and hang up. So if you can initiate a POST, our API can do the trick. If you need help with the POST, we can help there too.
