Sending requests over the serial connection

Each request consists of a JSON-formatted object, terminated by a newline. The object must contain another object called request, which is processed in exactly the same way as the content of the HTTP POST request above.

For example, to dial the number 1234 send the following:

{“request”:{“action”:”dial”,”number”:”1234″}}\n

To request the current call state, send:

{“request”:{“action”:”state”,”filter”:”calls”}}\n
