How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?

Both the cordless telephone and the additional handset 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.

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.

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. The base is compatible with the Photo Handset (one of which is included with this purchase), as well as the Extra Handset.

Extra Handset
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 be able to answer a call by simply picking up the handset from the charging cradle, without having to remember 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, and the handset comes with four photo buttons. You can use this easy-to-use template to upload you own pictures, and then print them out in the right size for the photo phone buttons.

The base is equipped with photo buttons for easier dialling

The cordless handset can be equipped with four photo buttons as well. You can use this template to print your images to fit on the cordless handset.

Does This Phone Feature Caller ID?

Yes, this phone can display Caller ID, providing it is supplied in your current package by your service provider. It will store the last 50 numbers, allowing you to scroll back through your last calls for reference.

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 Do I Apply the Photos?

The photo buttons can be flipped up, at which point you can easily insert the photos that you have cut to size. The diagram below shows the process of placing your photos into the photo buttons.

The cordless phone allows for 10 hours of continuous talk time, while the extra handset allows for eight hours of talk time.

Simple phone for elderly parents.
Saturday, 29 January 2022  | 

Needed a phone that would be easy to use and address their failing hearing.

The ringer has a go volume and is backed up with a large light indicator which is useful as the TV can be loud. The handsets are also loud enough for them to use without their hearing aids.

The one button calling is ideal for my father who has never been good with tech.

My one criticism would be that the manual could be clearer.
I had trouble pairing the handsets, to the point I thought there was a fault. It wasn't clear that when the pairing option had been initiated on the main base station that it would produce a series of tones rather than a single one. It wasn't clear that when pairing, again, that the pairing button on the station had to be held in until the tones start.

How Do I Pair My Geemarc AmpliDECT 295 Photo with a Photo Button Handset?
