Initiate conference call with one touch? Extension or HTTP?

    I am working on a project where we are using android tablets as intercom devices. What I'm after is the simple capability to be able to initialize a conference call with say 3 clients from a single "button" if you will. I can integrate an extension into a dialer widget if that will work or it looks like there may be some trick I can execute with the HTTP API which can also be launched from a homescreen widget.

    My understanding currently is you can of course do a single point to point "intercom" with activating the feature with a *9 call tag which allows immediate 2 way communication or you can setup a paging extension that sends a voice broadcast to multiple clients however that only allows 1 way communication. A conference call merges both if auto-answer is configured on the client side (it is) and would allow 2 way communication with multiple tablets truly providing a group intercom feature. I'm curious if anyone has some ideas here on how to accomplish this?

    *edit* I've been playing with the http get commands 3CX is supposed to be able to use but I seem to have trouble getting this to work, is this a feature that has been removed? I may be able to accomplish what I'm after by initializing a simultaneous call in to the 700 conference extension from the phones I want active in the group.

    Hi Klaus,
    Have a look at the Call Control API for this matter: http://www.3cx.com/blog/docs/call-control-api/
