Where is wakeup calls

where is wakeup calls… in freepbx 2.3.0 ??

Wakeup Calls has never been part of FreePBX. There has been no proper module written for it or if there has, it is hidden away in the ticket system or elsewhere and needs to be brought to our attention for review for inclusion.

You will probably find wakeup calls is a feature of trixbox (and possibly other distros), not asterisk or freepbx per se.

That being said, its a no-brainer to install, first track down the scripts, which are available for download at
various location…

  1. copy wakeup.php and wakeconfirm.agi to /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin

  2. Define a ‘misc application’ which maps *62 to the wakeup application
    . Description: Wake Up Call
    . Feature code: *62
    . Feature Status: Enabled
    and select
    . Custom App: custom-wakeup-call,s,1

  3. In extensions_custom.conf, add

exten => s,1,Answer
exten => s,2,AGI(wakeup.php)
exten => s,3,Hangup

That should get you going. I’ve always found the sound files are part of the standard asterisk sound distribution.

NOTE: The script depends on ‘/tmp’ and ‘/var/spool/asterisk/outgoing’ being part of the same filesystem. Thats fine if
you have a single file system. For me (I have / /tmp and /var as independent filesystems) it was a simple matter of
changing the ‘temp’ location to ‘/var/tmp’. You will know if you have the problem, when you leave a wake up call, it calls
you back before you have have time to hang up (you get call waiting pips the moment you finish setting up the wakeup call)

there is a modified wakeup.php as part of ticket #1752. The code was modified to deal with SIP device issues in the original. You may want to check it out.

It would be also nice to give a service to all people calling in TrixBox. Autorecognizing the caller number.
