New accessories for Ooma VOIP phone system
Ooma keeps adding acccessoris that enhance the value of the Ooma home and small office VOIP system which I reviewed about this time last year. Today the company has added two new accessories. The Ooma HD2 Handset brings Smartphone features to your Ooma and the Ooma Linx allows the wireless connection of other telephony devices such as a fax machine.
The new cordless Ooma HD2 Handset adds smart phone features to the home phone via the Ooma cloud-enabled platform while providing the full range of features offered by Ooma’s home phone service. The Handset features a two-inch colour screen which will display picture of a caller in the user’s contact list when the phone rings. Pictures and contact information can be imported from Facebook, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Outlook and Mac Contacts. The cordless handset offers superior security and range afforded by the latest DECT technology without interfering with home Wi-Fi networks or other home electronics. Up to four handsets can be used with each Ooma Telo. Another useful feature is the ability to configure a handset so it can be used as a baby monitor.
The new Ooma Linx wirelessly connects phones, fax machines or anything that needs to be conected to a phone line around the home to the Ooma Telo using the latest DECT technology. For the first time it will allow you to install your main phone anywhere in the home instead of being where the Ooma Telo unit is located.
Both devices will be available in Canada November 1st (today in the US) The Ooma Linx will sell for $49.99. The Ooma HD2 Handset sells for $59.99. Visit http://ca.ooma.com/buy or http://www.ooma.com/buy/find-a-store for a list of participating retailers.
