Wake-up Calls & Text-to-Speech Calls
The Calls feature allows making wake-up calls (ring only) and text-to-speech calls to a single phone number or group of recipients. This feature is ideal for delivering urgent messages or announcements, such as alerts, emergency notifications, or other time-sensitive information. A call request can be created via SMSEagle web-GUI or API.
Wake Up Calls (Ring only)
Wake up call is a ring-only call that can be used to capture a recipient’s attention. This feature allows for example to wake up someone during the night to draw attention to SMS containing a critical alert. When a wake up call is made SMSEagle device will ring to a specified phone number or phonebook entry for a specified number of seconds.
Text-To-Speech (TTS) Automated Calls
Text-To-Speech call allows converting of text message to voice call. This feature is particularly useful for businesses or organizations that must deliver important automated messages via voice. When a TTS call is made SMSEagle device will call a specified phone number or phonebook entry and text message will be read by a built-in voice synthesizer (currently the English language is supported by voice synthesis).
In New call window you can set:
- Contact or group from Phonebook or manual input
- Which modem to call from (when using a multi-modem device)
- Set call priority from 0-5
- Select call type, Ring only or Text to speech
- Input message when Text to speech call type is selected
Wake-up Calls and Text to Speech Calls functions are only available to users who have purchased the VOICE add-on for their SMSEagle device. Due to technical limitations, the Text to Speech (TTS) function is only available on NXS hardware Rev. 4 and MHD-8100-4G devices.
