Before asterisk stopped working, I wrote most of a system that replaced 
gatebot's code with a list of authorized numbers. If you dialed the 
right incantation, and your Caller-ID was on The List, then the door 
would open. Anyone with access to pony could add and remove numbers.

One of the problems of gatebot is that it costs money. Sorry, kids, but 
SIP trunks aren't free. It was fun while it lasted, but I'm not sure 
that phone access is worth any monthly recurring cost.

Also: what about keying the upstairs door with the A-key?
