Siemens Gigaset low EMF ECO-DECT-Plus Cordless Phones
Siemens ECO-DECT Plus phones
These cordless phones are DECT phones that can turn their microwave transmitters off between calls, even when you have more than one handset. These phones are high-quality products that work well and greatly reduce your microwave exposure. Additional handsets can only be purchased as part of a set (ie when ordering a base unit too).
Why ECO-DECT Plus? The normal DECT Standard requires the base unit to transmit a signal at full power 24-7 even when you are not actually making phone calls. The pulsing transmissions are quite powerful and can still measure several volts per metre up to about 5 metres from the unit. It is like having a small mobile phone mast inside your home. Even if you live near a mobile phone base station, a DECT unit inside your home is likely to exposure you to higher levels of pulsing microwaves!
Siemens have produced a range of DECT compatible phones that turn off their transmitters when a call is not being made. The Gigaset ECO-DECT units have adaptive power control and their unique Plus version allows the units to stop transmitting when no telephone call is taking place. There are a few other makes that can turn down their power slightly, but they still irradiate you 24-7.
Note to our overseas customers from Siemens: "Due to telephone line specifications and hardware specifications, a product sold in a specific country is to be used in that country. If the telephone is used anywhere else, we are not able to confirm that the telephone or all the features (if any) will be functioning as it should in its country of origin." Due to this specific advice from Siemens, we are not able to supply phones for use outside of the UK.
