    I read an article several months back about a new device that attached to your doorbell that would actually dial a phone number when the doorbell button was pressed. You answer the phone and talk to the person at the door. Actually, the person at the door was unknowingly talking to you by phone, thinking you were home and talking by intercom.

    I want to set up a similar system up using a computer and a land line that will dial my cell phone.

    Anyone know of a way/hardware/web site or a how-to on this kind of thing? I'm not coming up with anything in a Google search.

    Thanks but that's a GSM device. I'm looking for something that dials from a land line.
