Hello from Merry Olde England,
I have a small project in mind that will involve driving an actuator that will push one of two adjecent buttons on a physical telephone in specific fixed timings. The reason for this is that many of our customers have extremely busy phone lines and it is often very difficult to get through without continually retrying, hoping therefore to be able to automate this this is a common bugbear with staff.
I envisage some sort of “Clip On” device that would sit atop those two buttons and with an actuator ( “Finger Emulator (?!)” ) on each. The actuator would be controlled from an AutoIt script running on a PC, or another compiled Executable that can be called from there.
Can anyone advise what I would need in terms of controller/actuator for this project?
I can solder if needs be, but if there are parts that don’t require soldering that would be even better.
Hope this makes sense and if I can supply any other info or specifics about the project that would help please let me know.
