type String one of call types (dialing, incoming, connected, and disconnected)
attributes String a call event attibutes
duration Int length of the call session
trace String source/target of the call
deviceId String AWARE device UUID
label String Customizable label. Useful for data calibration or traceability
timestamp Long unixtime milliseconds since 1970
timezone Int Timezone of the device
os String Operating system of the device (ex. android)

Example Usage

let callsSensor = CallsSensor.init(CallsSensor.Config().apply{config in
    config.debug = true

class Observer:CallsObserver{
    func onCall(data: CallData) {
        // Your code here..

    func onRinging(number: String?) {
