I know alarmreceiver isn't actively developed, so you may need to seek someone on the asterisk-dev or asterisk-biz lists if you need this resolved in a reasonable period of time.

Might be a timing issue, try adjusting fdtimeout/sdtimeout in alarmreceiver.conf. Additionally, you might want to take a look at the patch in https://issues.asterisk.org/view.php?id=18010, it may resolve your problem.

I just noticed an error in the logfiles:

AlarmReceiver: can't make temporary file

I found some sources of alarmreceiver, but i cant figure out where the temp file is normally created, and why it isnt possible to create the temp file. Can anybody point me in a direction? I hope this solves my problem.

Did resolving the temporary file issue fix this problem for you?
