I'm attempting to implement panic button functionality, so that when a user presses a softkey, 911 is called and URL is passed simultaneously (notification url to alert that 911 was called). I'm not a developer, but looking at the SDK, this looks like it shouldn't be overly difficult. Any assistance in this effort is greatly appreciated.

Basically what you want to do is create a service which returns the following upon being called (eg. a webpage alarm.asp, which returns the following xml)


Define the alarms.asp page as a new service, add it to the phones that need it, then configure one of the line keys as a service button and assign the alarm service to that button. Now, a person can dial 911 and call that url at the same time by pressing one single button on the phone.

Thank you very much! I didn't know you could execute multiple items via a service. This is fantastic.
