How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?
As the AmpliDECT 295 has an adjustable receiver volume of up to 30dB, you won't have to worry about not being able to hear telephone conversations. If members of your household have different listening requirements, the phones can be easily adjusted at the touch of a button. It is also compatible with hearing aids, making it ideal for providing different users with a more pleasant and reliable telephone experience.
How Loud Is the Ringer Volume?
The handset has a ringer volume of up to 75dB, and the base volume goes up to 80dB. This is generally considered to be at the higher end of ringer volumes for incoming calls.
Why Choose a Cordless Amplified Telephone?
The AmpliDECT 295 Amplified Cordless Telephone can be kept in the cradle when not in use to help ensure that it is not misplaced. This will be useful if you suffer from memory difficulties or would struggle to quickly locate the phone when it rings. Due to the cordless nature of the handsets, you will also have the option to carry one with you around your home, receiving up to eight hours of continuous talk time per handset.
The ability to move the handset between rooms will be ideal for when you are waiting for a phone call but don't want to remain seated by the cradle. It also allows you to walk about while taking calls, and having multiple handsets means you can keep them in different rooms for greater convenience. For example, you could take one of the phones into your bedroom at night for peace of mind that it will be within easy reach should you need to make or receive any urgent calls.
How Easy to Use Is This DECT Phone?
The Geemarc Amplidect 295 Telephone is designed for users who might find it difficult to remember to press a button whenever they pick the phone up from the cradle. The Amplidect 295 comes with the option to set the handset to "auto answer", in which case you can answer a call by simply picking the phone up from the charging cradle or the base station.
If the handset is not on the charging cradle, however, you need to press either the green button or the speaker button to answer a call. Pressing the button twice activates the speakerphone.
Does This Phone Include an Answering Machine?
During those occasions when you're away from your home, the built-in answering machine enables callers to leave messages for you to listen to later. The recorded messages can provide reassurance that you will never miss any important messages again.
Does the Phone Light Up When Receiving a Call?
When an incoming call is detected, the red LED light at the top of each handset will illuminate. This light brightly and steadily flashes, clearly signifying that a call is on the line.
Can I Set A Distinct Ring for Each Caller?
Yes, you can set a different ring for each caller in your phonebook, allowing the user to easily identify the caller from the ring alone. Each AmpliDECT 295 handset features five standard rings and five polyphonic rings, while the base itself features five standard rings. This provides plenty of room for customisation to ensure important numbers can have a distinct ring.
How Is the AmpliDECT 295 Powered?
The telephone base needs to be connected to the mains. The cordless handsets run on two rechargeable batteries, which need to be charged in order for them to work. The range of the cordless handset is 50 metres inside your house.
Is This Phone Suitable for the Elderly?
The AmpliDECT 295 offers additional features to further improve the phone's practicality. The built-in phone book can store up to 50 numbers, and both the display screen and larger button designs are ideal if you suffer from visual impairments or reduced dexterity.
The handsfree speakerphone will provide further support if you find it uncomfortable to hold the phone for extended periods of time. With Caller ID and a redial button, the AmpliDECT 295 can help reduce any struggles that arise when using the telephone.
How Many Handsets Can I Connect?
This Geemarc AmpliDECT 295 Phone includes one base with a handset, and one additional handset. To make it even more versatile, the base can be paired with up to four more additional handsets.
