Summary: Using this for quite some time now.
Provides intercom facility on the go between 2 handsets.
Not much R&D needed for initial setup.
Good quality sound and range. for a 3BHK, it is a perfect alternative for Landline wires.
Excerpt: The Gigaset A490 has great features. Good sound quality & range which works well in my 3BHK flat. Cute looks and excellent build quality is a rare combination. There are lots of other features like alarm function, keypad lock (child lock), ringer volume mute etc. But there’s one shortcoming we can see only the phone number of the caller on its caller id & not the name of the caller. Except this it’s a phone no one can say no to.
