Hi David,

Have a look at this script:

I did not write this and have not used it, but I had good luck starting with another Linphone Python example. It shows how to run from the command line and in the background (you'd have to start with "sudo python &", I think).

You do have access to incoming call information, and I think you should be able to handle a sort of caller-id. The script that I derived from the other example is in my security camera project here: I think you may need to combine the "security" features of this where it checks the list of callers to see if the incoming is in that list. If not, it does not answer. Instead of not answering, you want it to display the information.

Hope this helps,

I’m new to Linphone and I am working on setting up a Raspberry PI home info display - and one thing I would like to do is have it display is incoming caller id. I would like my setup to lookup on the number in my address book or small database to display my version of the person’s name and change the ring sound played depending on who is calling. Alternatively I could run Linphone on one of the Macs that is turned on all the time.

I have a VOIP setup and I have a SIP connection via Callcentric. I am currently using a Cisco SP112 ATA device to connect my house phones to my VOIP vendor.

Is it possible to run Linphone as a command line interface/background job so that when there is an incoming call it will activate a script (say in Python) and pass it the caller id information? If not, does anyone know an alternative method to monitor incoming SIP calls and grab the caller id info.
