Today’s phone systems can double as an intercom, for paging to a particular room or to the entire house. You can have two-way communication with a person at your front door or gate and buzz them in from the phone keypad. Control incoming phone numbers, such as a home office line, so the phone does not ring after hours.
Limit a child’s phone use by turning off their phones at preset times. Call anywhere throughout your home using new cordless phone technology similar to cell phone technology. Have integrated voicemail for each family member to have their own voicemail box.
