Default Program an Iphone to pick up automatically when a certain number calls and dial '6'?

Hello I-hope-to-be-my-saviors,

I have an Iphone, and what I want it to do is to automatically pick up when a certain number calls and dial '6'.

I recently moved into a new building that with call box. There is a specific number for my unit that my guest or food delivery dial, i then take the call and press '6' to open. Every Monday and Wednesday from 1 am - 6 am a food delivery is made to my door. These are prepared meals with special dietary needs. This means i have to wake up in the middle of the night twice a week to let him in.

No sleep is starting to take a toll on me, pretty much a zombie at work because it takes me a while to go back to sleep. So what i need to to program my phone to recognize the call box number, automatically answer it, dial '6' and end call.

There has to be a solution, for my sanity, to this but I'm not even sure where to start searching.

Hope I can get some help

Thanks in advance

Wouldn't you still need to get up to receive the order?

No. They leave it hanging from my doorknob.

I'll try this week, pretty much everything already done here: https://www.raywenderlich.com/150015...t-tutorial-ios

TL;DR tho the app intercepts all incoming calls, so this might be an app you wanna kill unless you're sleeping to avoid any confusing stuff happening.
