Auerswald Callnotifier for COMpact 3000

Connects to the debug port of your Auerswald Compact 3000 telephony switchboard and listens for incoming calls. It will notify you whenever a call comes in.

It also listens for outgoing calls if you want that, and you can log incoming and/or outgoing calls into a file or a database.

Callnotifier is able to resolve the names of calls via LDAP and the caller location city names via OpenGeoDb.

Call types

Logging plugins allow you to specify when calls shall be logged:

  • startingCall - when the call is coming in, and the telephone rings
  • finishedCall - when the call has ended

Furthermore you may decide which calls to log:

  • i - Log incoming calls only
  • o - Log outgoing calls only
  • io - Log both incoming and outgoing calls


There are two types of plugins: Detailler and Logger. Detaillers load additional details to a call - e.g. a name - and loggers can do anything, e.g. write a log file or send a XMPP message.


Plugins that fetch additional details to calls are named "detailler".


The plugin determines the name for a telephone number by looking up a LDAP directory.

It retrieves the name of the caller for incoming calls, and the name of the telephonee for outgoing calls.

It searches the following LDAP attributes:

  • companyPhone
  • homePhone
  • mobile
  • otherPhone
  • telephoneNumber

Example configuration:

    new CallMonitor_Detailler_LDAP(
            'host' => '',
            'basedn' => 'ou=adressbuch,dc=cweiske,dc=de',
            'binddn' => 'cn=readonly,ou=users,dc=cweiske,dc=de',
            'bindpw' => 'readonly'


The plugin determines the location (city) for a telephone number by checking the area code (prefix number) against a OpenGeoDB SQL database.

If several locations share the same area code, the one with the most inhabitants is used.

If you use this plugin, you need to run docs/opengeodb-create-my_orte.sql on the OpenGeoDB database to create an indexed table with all relevant information needed by the plugin.

Example configuration:

    new CallMonitor_Detailler_OpenGeoDb(


Logger handle react on events like incoming or outgoing calls, if they start or finish, or on any data received from the ISDN bus.

Available logger:

Log calls in a SQL database
Send messages on incoming calls to the DreamBox satellite receiver
Log to the command line. Helpful for debugging.
Log finished calls into a text file
Log finished calls into a text file, newest on top
Use the unix notify-send command on starting and finished calls
Send an XMPP headline message for incoming calls to one or multiple users.

Known issues

Ctrl+C does not send the disconnect command. This is a problem with PHP since pcntl_signal handling and blocking sockets do not work together. The signal will not be handled.
