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.

Advantages

Eco-DECT

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.

Disadvantages

Gigaset

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.

ECO mode

Gigaset eco mode

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?

To activate ECO mode or ECO mode Plus, you should take the following steps:

  1. Open the main menu.
  2. Select 'Settings'.
  3. Select 'ECO DECT'.
