How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?
The AmpliDECT 295 has an adjustable receiver volume of up to 30dB, which is four times as loud as a standard telephone. Moreover, the ringing volume on the handset can be turned up to 75dB, while the volume on the base can be adjusted all the way up to 80dB.
If members of your household have different listening requirements, the phone 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 Easy to Use Is This Cordless Handset?
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. This is why 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.
How Does the SOS Pendant Work?
The SOS pendant is a simple yet effective device that can be carried around the home. This is ideal for anybody who is prone to falling or fears becoming stuck in one room, as it can dial out at the touch of a button.
It includes volume control, with two one-touch memory buttons for pre-programmed numbers. This means that a vulnerable person can call for help after a fall or if injured and unable to get to the telephone, helping ensure that nobody needs to struggle without being able to seek help.
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 flash, clearly signifying that a call is on the line.
Does It Have an Answering Machine?
Yes, the telephone base includes an answering machine that records unanswered calls when it is on. The answering machine can store up to 59 messages within the maximum recording time of approximately 15 minutes. As well as recording incoming messages, you can record memos for other users of your phone.
How Is the Cordless Handset Powered?
The base needs to be connected to the mains and the telephone socket, via the telephone cable and AC power adaptor included with this purchase. The handset is powered with a pack of rechargeable batteries. The rechargeable batteries provide up to eight hours of continuous talk time, and two days of standby time, and can be recharged by simply placing the handset back onto the base.
Who Is This Phone System For?
This AmpliDECT 295 Phone and SOS Pendant Pack is ideal for anyone who wants to stay self-sufficient in their home. The amplified cordless handset ensures you can clearly hear your phone conversations, while the SOS pendant provides extra peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
Why Use a Cordless Handset?
The AmpliDECT 295 Amplified Cordless Telephone itself can be kept in its cradle when not in use to help ensure that it is not misplaced. This will be useful for anyone suffering from memory difficulties or who would struggle to quickly locate the phone when it rings.
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. You can even take the phone 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.
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.
Can I Connect the Base with More Handsets and Pendants?
