Looking for a standalone call logger (not recorder) that plugs into an analog line and makes a GET/POST call to a URL for every incoming call passing the caller ID as a variable.

Does this device exist?

Please advise, thank you.

Also, it doesn't need todo anything afterwards with the call. As soon as the device receives a call, it just needs to make the GET/POST request to the URL and terminate the call.

I used to have a dongle, just relocated and can't find it at the moment,  that went on an Analog line and streamed the fsk data (caller Id) to a 25 pin serial connector that you could do what you want with.  

This is a link page on the one I had - http://www.talkingcallerid.com/CallerIDPlug.htm

 I quick google search will give you lots of devices with this basic capability --  

This might be overkill, but it's an example of what's out there --

An here is a great reference site --

If you want to roll your own an older US Robotics and other modems have the capability as well.
