We’ve used DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) technology in a number of our devices – HD2 Handset, Linx, Safety Phone – and today we’re announcing a new DECT headset. What makes us such big fans that we keep tapping into DECT? It has the wireless connection benefits of Bluetooth but with a far greater range. DECT covers the ground of close to half a football field (150 feet), while Bluetooth would limit you to just the end zone (30 feet).
Five times the distance can make a pretty big difference when you need to take a call while staying hands-free multi-tasking in a conference room or watering out in the garden. Starting to see why we’re bringing more DECT-based devices to you?
Our DECT headset helps you stay connected throughout your home or office – wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. Phone rings while you’re down in the basement doing laundry? Hit the button on the headset to answer. Need to call a client but also head to the copier to get a massive print job going? Use the click-to-call feature in Ooma Office Manager to place the call directly from your headset and then get moving.
The DECT headset can be worn in three ways: hooked on your ear, with a headband or with a neckband. In comes with a charging cradle for easy storage and powering up when not in use.
The DECT headset is now available for $99 on ooma.com. How would you use yours to stay connected?
