A buyer's guide to Cordless Phones
Home telephones sold today fall into one of the following three categories:
Digital cordless phones can have a range outdoors of up to 300m, and speech quality should be similar to that of a corded phone. They make use of a technology standard referred to as DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications). Analogue phones have a shorter range, less security and more interference.
A digital cordless phone will consist of a base station and one or more handsets. Radio frequencies (RF) are used to transmit your conversation between the handset and base, and modern techologies make this secure. RF interference virtually none existant on a digital handset. You can also get an answering machine as part of your set up.
Features to look out for
Most cordless phones today offer number storage, last number redial and a volume control. Other features to look out for include:
In a power cut your cordless handsets will not work because there will be no power to the base station. I always recommend that you keep a traditional corded phone plugged in somewhere in your home in case of emergency.
