Jeremy Willden created a gadget to end the difficulty of getting his children up for school. He took his home Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) system and added paging speakers. He ran a set of the speakers into his childrens' rooms. Every school day, a cron job on the server generates a set of Asterisk Call files that trigger pre-recorded announcements at specific times. At 8 a.m. the message says, “It's 8 o'clock, time to get up.” At 8:10 the message says, “It's 8:10 and you should be eating breakfast by now.” New messages are played until it's time for the children to walk out the door. For those who don't have VoIP, Willden also developed a system that can be run on a home PC.
