What is Gigaset ECO-DECT?

Saving on energy is always a good idea. While landline phones don't use too much energy anyway, most Gigasets can get even more energy efficient. This is possible through the ECO-Dect mode. In the text below, you can read what ECO-Dect is exactly and you can set it up for your device.

What is ECO-DECT?

Almost all Gigaset devices nowadays feature an ECO mode or even an ECO mode Plus. This technology significantly reduces the power consumption of the devices.



It's actually very easy. By reducing the transmission capacity, less energy is used. By using ECO mode, you can use up to 60% less power. Other than that, DECT devices always emit a very limited amount of radiation. This radiation, which is never dangerous, will be reduced even more by ECO mode.



Yes, there is a small disadvantage. In ECO mode, the transmission power of the devices is limited. While the range of a Gigaset is usually always 50 meters indoors and 300 meters outdoors, this is halved when using ECO modi: 25 meters indoors, 150 meters outdoors.

Phones equipped with an ECO mode have the option of lowering their transmission power by as much as 80%. Devices with Eco mode Plus can completely turn of the range limit. This mode will then be active for all handsets registered to a base station, if all these handsets support ECO mode.

How do I set up ECO mode or ECO mode Plus?
