Topic: Why don't I seem to get a very good range?
Motorola’s DECT phones are tested to ensure that they meet the minimum range of 50 metres indoors and up to 300 metres outdoors. This is in ideal conditions. However in a normal home environment there are conditions that can affect performance - for example, the construction of the building in which the base/handset is placed including the wall material, thickness of walls and dampness.
• The base ideally needs to be placed away from large metal items such as fridge-freezers, microwave ovens, etc.
• Make sure the distance between the base and handset is obscured by as few walls as possible.
• The base should be placed away from other electrical/electronic equipment, eg, PCs, TVs, etc.
