Quote from: 1A2KEYBOY on January 02, 2021, 04:15:13 PMI interfaced my key system on line 1 to a bluetooth cellular gateway https://www.amazon.ca/Xtreme-Technologies-BTTN-Bluetooth-Gateway-Black/dp/B0018NWQPK/ref=asc_df_B0018NWQPK/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=292939588547&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17204856437176791429&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9000675&hvtargid=pla-383430106296&psc=1so you can call out using a cellphone instead of a c/o line. Line 2 is local intercom using a 207C type dial selector to all antique and 1A2 sets in the house. Line 3 lamp comes on when the garage door is open. Line 4 when the floodlights are left on in the back yard. Line 5 lamp is paralleled on QBX1A buzzers in every set so they light up and buzz when the doorbell rings. Just try doing that with VOIP! :-)

Quote from: Key2871 on January 04, 2021, 03:31:37 PMI could build one, but sourcing the parts for me could be dificult. I have a C shoe box now and it lives in my shop and I have a phone in the house for intercom that works great. http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=20486.msg209409#msg209409But I was impressed with the size and design of the board to run everything from a wall wart.But for those who can't get a KSU or parts to keep it going, that board is a great alternative.For things like the 118A frequency generator those are hard to locate, brackets to mount them in a B, are impossible to find.So I was very impressed someone designed a nice tidy board to run those golden sets of years gone by.I've had electronic systems like 416, the Merlin 408, and others. But it's the 1A2 that shines best in my opinion because so much can be done using those sets. Versus Merlin and such. A 416 could work like the 1A2 but I never really explored those.
