How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?
Both the cordless telephone and the additional handsets feature adjustable receiving volume that goes up to 30dB. The ringtone on the handset goes up to 75dB, while the ringtone on the base goes up to 80dB.
Why Might I Need Additional Handsets?
Having multiple handsets located in different rooms of the house has two main benefits, the first being that you are always in closer proximity to a phone at any given moment, meaning you'll be more likely to hear the phone ring. This also means that you won't have to go as far to pick up the phone, so there's less chance of missing the call before you reach the receiver.
Are Other Multi-Packs Available?
If you do not require this many handsets, there are other bundle options available. Please see below for more details.
How Easy to Set Up Is This Pack?
The process of setting up the cordless phone and then connecting the additional handset is very straightforward:
- First, you will need to set up the corded base by plugging the adaptor into a power socket and the telephone line cord into a telephone jack or a DSL filter.
- To install the cordless handset, insert the supplied batteries and charge the handset by placing it face forward in the base.
- You can install and charge the Photo Handset in the same manner. To connect it with the base, first place the base in "Registration Mode".
- Then replace the handset on the charging cradle, as which point a red LED will flash to indicate the registration is in process. Once the registration process is complete, you will hear a confirmation tone. It may take up to 60 seconds to complete the registration.

Can I Connect This Phone to My Internet Modem?
Yes, if you subscribe to a digital phone line from your landline provider, this phone can be connected by plugging the telephone cord directly into your internet modem.
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.
How Many Additional Handsets Can I Connect?
The Geemarc AmpliDECT 295 Photo Amplified Cordless Telephone allows you to connect up to four additional handsets, meaning that this bundle provides the maximum number of handsets you can possibly connect to the base. Please do not purchase any additional handsets with this bundle, as you will not be able to pair more than four at a time.
The base can be connected with up to four additional handsets
Is This Suitable for Users with Dementia?
The AmpliDECT 295 Amplified Telephone is designed to be easy to use, even for those who might find using a traditional cordless phone overwhelming. The "Auto Answer" function allows the user to answer a call by simply picking up the handset from its cradle, without having to press any buttons. This is ideal for users who are used to answering the phone this way.
Moreover, the base comes with 10 photo buttons, which allows you to call those closest to you by pressing a single button. Each extra handset also comes with four photo buttons of their own. You can use this easy-to-use template to upload your own pictures, and then print them out in the right size for the photo phone buttons.

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 by sound 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 Do I Apply the Photos?
