I have blogged before about how we picked out Baby monitor and it is not the only piece of high-tech equipment in our family home. Just like any other home we have multiple cell phones, some private, some for work, and we also have a home phone system. One thing that always annoyed us was the fact that there really was no integration between the cell phones and the cordless house phones.
With 4 cell phones and 2 cordless phones we would always scramble to figure out which phone was ringing and where it was. By the end of the day our cell phones would need charging so they would be plugged in somewhere in the house and we’d scramble to find them.
We then came across the site bestcordlessphoneguide.net and we quickly found a solution to our problem. Several phone manufacturers now offer cordless phone systems with integrated Bluetooth that build the bridge between wired and wireless phones. We picked out a Bluetooth cordless phone with two handsets and the ability to hook up a hands free kit.
Within just a few minutes we were able to pair our cell phones with cordless phone system and then we were able to see on the home phone handsets who was calling on a cell phone and take the call there. Essentially all our incoming calls can now be answered on the home phone and we do not need to scramble to see who’s calling.
This may sound a bit like a gadget, but if you have several cell phones and rely on them for work, then this can really be a great solution. Now, when we get home we can charge our cell phones in the office and not miss important business calls because we cannot hear the phone or don’t get to it on time.
It did turn out to be a little bit more difficult to get all our numbers onto the cordless phones, but it turned out that we were not following the instructions correctly. Now, all our important numbers are available on all phones and we can see exactly who’s calling no matter which phone line is being used.
Overall we found this new set up very convenient and well worth the investment. As a busy mom with a very busy household it is important to me to make all the little annoyances of life and find a way to get rid of them. Let’s face it, most of us have got unnecessarily annoyed over an accumulation of little things. I have snapped at my kids and husband and have regretted it after.
By taking simple steps like this I have gradually reduced the amount of recurring things that annoy me. And you will have often heard me shouting around the house asking everyone if they have seen or can hear where one of my phones was. Those days are now gone and a little nuisance will not cause any issues around the house. I think this will become increasingly important, as our kids grow older.
