is there some way to make Asterisk light up a certain light on an IP-phone ?
Like MWI, the message waiting indicator can light up if there is voicemail.
Could this light, or even other lights (like BLF-buttons) be used to
give a visual notification to the user ?
For example : if a certain value is set in the Mysql-DB and Asterisk
reads out this value, can Asterisk react upon it inside the dialplan to
make a light lit up ?
2nd example : if a certain extension is called, can we perform inside
the dialplan an action that makes a light lit up on a Snom or Yealink
I don’t know if all this is at all possible, but it doesn’t harm asking
If BLF works, then maybe more things are possible in the same way. Just
thinking outside the box here.

On snom and other phones it is easy…
Also look at SLA
Sorry I only know about Polycom and not as much about that as I’d like.

Both of these must be a 1.6.x or newer, I have neither under 1.4
I must say that I have succeeded in working with DEVSTATE to get a
BLF-light in several colors. Which works great for what I want. Thank
you for the feedback.
Do you think it is also possible to get info displayed on the screen of
the IP-phone ? Any idea how that would work ? Something tells me that
this will depend on the brand/type of IP-phone.
Probably using XML – which is phone dependant.
Aastra phones have a very good XML browser. You can use an API to send
messages and configuration to the phone.
I would think that that is down to either your indications.conf (could
be wrong) or the handset itself.
I know most Yealink and GrandStream handsets let you change tones in
their individual config. Not too sure about others.
