I mentioned in a previous post that we use a little piece of software that our call box actually calls so that instead of the office phone ringing for every single person who wants to be let in, they can let themselves in with a code they get as a member.
Some folks have asked if we could share the code for that software, so here it is: https://github.com/indyhall/intercom/
It costs us $9/month in hosting and…maybe $10-20/month in Twilio credits to keep this running.
Fair warning, this is completely undocumented at this point, and isn’t really “designed” at all, just the standard user interface that Django spits out.
But…it works, and allows us to generate a custom codes for as many members as we want instead of having to manually buzz them in.
It even create membership groups with time restrictions so you can allow peoples’ codes to only work during certain hours.
It tracks usage too through an audit trail.
It’ll take some elbow grease and knowledge of Django/Python programming to get up and running, and I recommend recording your own greetings unless you want to welcome people to Indy Hall (though you can hear ours, including some of the fun hidden “easter eggs” Adam recorded).
If someone gets this up and running and wants to contribute documentation, I’ll happily accept pull requests
The #1 mistake in community building is doing it by yourself.
