Valcom makes control units/door strikes/callboxes integrating with a FXO interface. Their phone pre-sales is really good and can help you out, check www.valcom.com<http://www.valcom.com
We had this same setup at work. Callbox outside, you answer and talk, maybe check the web based video camera that it really is FedEx, press #2 to unlock that door using a door strike.

From what I recall, it is the device doing the calling that intercepts the DTMF and sends the relay to the lockplate. So for example, in an apartment building, the apartment owners don't all have special phones, but the device at the door that calls them is expecting a * or # or something.

Subject: [cisco-voip] Need advice to unlock doors
Iâ€™ve been asked to integrate our CM 7.1(3) with an iStar Pro system which controls electric strikes on doors. They want to be able to unlock doors from an IP Phone. Letâ€™s say a visitorâ€™s at the front door for me, so he lifts the IP Phone right by the door and dials my number. Then, I input a code or a softkey or anything that will trigger a relay, which will unlock the door.
I absolutely donâ€™t know how to do this. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
