Mom Must-Have: VTech Safe and Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor Review #VTechBaby

February 18, 2015

First off, whether you plan on using this for your baby, toddler, or even preschool or school aged kids, you will reap all of the benefits of this video monitoring system. I love the Pan, Tilt, and Zoom features. You can watch your little one(s) as they move about. The camera pans up to 270 degrees side-to-side and tilts as many as 124 degrees up and down. And if that's not enough details, the camera zooms up to 2x!

Give Your Child Independence and Keep Them Safe + #VTechBaby Twitter Party

February 16, 2015

I’ve been told I’m the most laid back “girl mom” and it’s true. My girls need their independence (with boundaries, of course) and I don’t need to hover over them 24/7. We have a very open floorplan on the first floor of our house, but there’s also a second story. My solution to this problem? A baby monitor…the VTech Safe & Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor to be exact.  

VTech Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor Review #VTechBaby

February 16, 2015

With the tiny space we had, I couldn’t see how often I would use it. With baby #2 and our move to a house, the baby monitor shot way up on my list of priorities.  Since then, I’ve received several video monitors to review: and even as my children are growing like weeds, I find them more and more useful! Most recently I received the VTech Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor. 

VTech Safe&Sound Baby Monitor and Twitter Party

Make Sure Your Little Ones are Safe&Sound with VTech

February 14, 2015

As our family has grown, the usefulness of our video monitor has grown so much. While I love seeing the baby on the monitor, I actually think it comes in handier for my big boys. I can check on them when they’re in their room playing without intruding, talk with them through the monitor, and I even get to catch a few of those very rare moments when they’re being nice to each other. More often, I catch Aiden trying to superman off the top bunk of his bed, Reese climbing the cubicles on the wall, or even more scary- I caught my 18 month old scaling the bunk bed ladder to play with his brothers at the very top. While I may have a heart attack in the process of watching my kids grow while using them, video monitors rock in our home! So I was pleasantly surprised when we got to try out the new VTech Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor! 

VTech Video Monitor: Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Baby Monitor

February 14, 2015

It’s definitely a monitor to grow with your family—features that make it wonderful for a baby and, clearly, useful for a toddler as well! Plus, you can connect FOUR cameras to one parent unit! I’d love to add another camera in Ryan’s room or even in the playroom for when you’re cooking dinner or doing laundry and can’t have your eyes on those mischievous monkeys!

This is a monitor that can grow with a child from infancy all the way up to toddler and preschool years.

VTech Baby Monitor Review

January 22, 2015

I had a tendency to register for whatever was the top 3 populated brands in my searches for any particular item, but I did very little research trying to find the best products available for my money.  This time, I am making much more informed decisions.  I am doing extensive research to make sure I get the best product, for the best price. Especially since we are footing the bill for all the expenses this time around (no baby showers for second babies), I want to make sure we spend our money wisely on products that work well, and that will last.

This time around, there were 4 criteria that I focused on while deciding which baby monitor to go with:

  • Needed to include video and audio feed, both high quality
  • Preferably needed to include infrared night vision
  • Needs to have a decent range, of more than 800 ft.
  • Preferably needed to have two-way communication (so I can talk to baby)

I ultimately decided that the VTech Safe & Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Monitor was the monitor that exceeded all of my criteria points, and was within my price range.

A visual look at the evolution of everyday tech

December 16, 2014

The sound of a VHS tape rewinding is like nails on a chalkboard for those of us who enter panic-mode when Netflix won't load quickly enough to binge watch the latest season of Orange Is the New Black. And the craziest part — this is actually how we used to watch movies.

Arguably, tech is evolving faster than ever before, with hoards of new devices, apps and services unveiled on a daily basis. When we take a look back at what “high-tech” meant just five years ago, it’s shocking to see how much our daily lives have changed.

We've delved into what some of our everyday technologies used to look like, and how they have evolved. We’ve come a long way from old-school boomboxes, VHS tapes and traditional landlines — VTech’s own Connect to Cell home phone system is just one example of how technologies have improved and made our lives a little bit better! Check out the in-depth infographic below.

Its large, easy-to-see buttons include four speed-dial buttons into which you can place photos of the actual contacts for quick identification. The base unit's LCD shows info clearly, and even tilts up to adjust the viewing angle. The most intriguing feature is a small oval-shaped pendant that's actually a speakerphone with two buttons that can be programmed to dial out to an emergency responder or family member. Voice quality is excellent and the answerer has ample message capacity.

Reasons You'll Regret NOT Having a Home Telephone

November 11, 2014

Over the last few months I’ve realized we need a home telephone.  In fact, we already have a home telephone number as part of our bundle with Comcast because it was cheaper to add it then just having cable & Wi-Fi alone. Two out of five U.S. homes don’t have a landline telephone.  But I realized I didn’t want to stay a part of the trend and created a list of time I regret not having a home telephone, including:

Augment your cell phone on long-term travel with VTech

November 02, 2014

How often do you miss calls on your cell phone because it's hidden in your bed linens or you forgot where you put it? Or, you're on a very long call and you see that your cell is dying? You know you need to charge it . . . what to do? Or, your cell service has "dead" spots where you are and you don't want to be anchored like a potted plant to that spot. Those are the specific situations where the VTech Connect to Cell products come in handy. I was happy to be hosted to experience it.  


September 09, 2014

Sorry….but, mincing words doesn’t work here.

I used to look at my parents and grandparents and think they were SO NEEDY as they aged. It felt AWFUL watching them grow older, have health issues, and not be able to fend for themselves the way that they used to. I would cling to the memories of my mom and dad when they were younger.

Review –VTech Headset Phone DS6671-3 & Retro Phone LS6191-17 Wireless Phones

February 13, 2014

Both units provided crystal-clear audio, and the battery life on the phones was exemplary. The range was far greater than in the past, when the reception suffered if we took a few steps too many away from the base. We now found ourselves able to maintain a connection even when venturing outside the house to check the mail or retrieve something from our car in the driveway, without an interruption to the call. The new batteries are nickel metal hydride, which offer better life, less memory issues compared with the nickel cadmium batteries of older units.

Update Your Décor and enter to win a VTech RED cordless phone! #Giveaway

February 10, 2014

Do you decorate your home for all the major holidays? I always added a little something the my home before kids, but now that I have a preschooler, each holiday is a major festivity. I can’t complain, it’s fun and I love it. Plus, I get to spruce things up every month to reflect the season. The current décor: Valentine's Day!

Pinks and reds were always colors my preschooler gravitated to. She’s a girlie girl and loves anything with hearts and flowers. Window clings are her favorite because she can rearrange them often, and a heart shaped wreath hangs outside our door .When the red VTech cordless phone arrived at our doorstep she knew immediately it was for Valentine’s Day and begged to unwrap it and set it up. I have to admit, the vibrant red phone does add a nice touch to our Valentine’s décor!

Tips For Keeping Your Home Safe After The Holidays

January 29, 2014

The Audio/Video Door Answering System from VTech Phones is just perfect for any family home or business. With its combination of doorbell, phone system and digital camera, you get a great home security system which is also affordable. This cutting edge product is the first of its kind and can give you a screening of who is at your door from the comfort of inside your home. If you can imagine what caller ID for your phone would be like if it were on video, this is what the Audio/Video Door Answering System is like. When someone rings the bell, the system will take a photo and send it to the handset of the phone. From there, you can stream a video or audio separately or simultaneously

You can push to talk to the visitor with the simple push of a button, the phone can store up to 50 numbers and save up to 100 photos. It has a backlit keypad and display, ECO Mode power-conserving technology and you can expand your system up to 10 handsets and 2 cameras. You also get all the convenient features of the telephone like call waiting, conferencing, mute, a digital answering system and you can use the handsets as an intercom within the home.

Product Review: VTech 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Cordless Handset

January 29, 2014

The convenience that DS6671-3 offers goes without saying. A big issue that most report with cell phones is that they have it on vibrate and never hear it ring. I am guilty of not knowing where I placed mine. Also, it isn't healthy to hold cell phones to the ear. According to the National Cancer Institute, cell phones emit radio frequency energy and tissues that come in contact can absorb the energy. With the VTech handset you can connect your cell phone to it using a Bluetooth enabled cell phone. Using the 1 cell or 2 cell options, you can also make cell phone calls thorough the handset device. Furthermore, the VTech device allows you to connect two different cell phones and up to 12 handsets using one phone jack (sold separately).

VTech Cordless Answering System CS6529-16! It Is a RED Phone!

January 12, 2014

This Digital Answering System has up to 14 minutes of recording time and is set up for Caller ID and Call Waiting. It has the speaker phone function, mute, and quiet mode to silence the ringer. It can also be expanded to up to 5 additional phones by adding the accessory handset kit (CS6509-16). The phone is backlit and is also equipped with ECO mode for battery power conservation.

The design of this phone is small and the base is compact. I like the ringer, the call sound quality is great, and the answering system functions the way it is supposed to. I love the color, and it now has a permanent spot in my kitchen.

VTech Colored Phones Keep Things Festive

December 31, 2013

One of the things you could buy would be some new phones. Since we get our phone service through our internet we don't plug the phones into the wall jacks. Instead, we have one base unit and several handsets. Anyway, our phones have been on their last legs. One of the handsets barely held a charge, and another one would just cut out for no reason. Then, I found the VTech CS6529-4B.

Even better than the fact that this phone has one base, three handsets, and a built in answering machine on the main base, is the fact that each handset is a different color. In this set you will receive a silver, blue, red, and green handset. The handsets have bold colors and even the keys are the same color as the handset. My sister (who LOVES Christmas has already said that she would love to have handsets in red and green!)

VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting

December 30, 2013

Whatever the reason, I am not giving up my land-line and VTech has a great phone to sweeten the deal. The VTech model CS6529-16 Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting in a cherry red is cheerful, bright and goes well with any decor. What I like about this VTech is its long battery life and how even with its low battery indicator lite, it won’t leave me hanging and still gives me at least 30 minutes of talk time. This cordless phone system has everything you need in a home phone. It has many features besides the Caller ID/Call Waiting options.

VTech Connect to Cell Cordless Phone

December 22, 2013

Our cellular connection in our house is not good. Most of the time the phone call will drop off when I enter in to the house. I love VTech's solution to this problem. It is the VTech Connect to Cell Cordless Phone. It allows you to make a receive both your landline calls and cell phone calls through this home phone system. We received the DS6511-3 Connect to Cell Cordless Phone and it is fabulous. The sound quality is awesome and the functionality is great.

The VTech Retro Phone Review (2013 Holiday Gift Guide)

December 12, 2013

VTech Retro Phone is amazing compared to those big, bulky cordless phones that take up tons of counter space. I just love how sleek and attractive it is and how it could fit anyone’s decor. This is such a great conversation piece and people are always drawn to it, wanting to know if it’s a real phone. I am also a fan of the rotary look and think the company did a fantastic job bringing it into a modern look. The phone is very light and sleek, it’s easy to keep at your ear and go hands free as a busy mom often doesn’t have time to keep her hands on a phone. Overall I am very impressed with the design and how they were able to take an old style phone, give it a modern look and still include all of the great features you find in cordless phones. This is simply a must have phone and I highly recommend it!

Stylish and Sleek: The VTech Retro Phone

December 08, 2013

I love the sleek design of the Vtech Retro Phone—it is classy and chic, even if it is slightly prone to fingerprints. I opted for a basic shiny black, but the phone also comes in fun colors like ruby red and tangerine. The rotary-style numbers are a fun feature that gives the phone some personality, but the touch buttons are so much easier to use than my grandparents' old rotary phone!

The cordless handset means I can answer calls from anywhere in the house, and I can do everything from the handset, even listening to messages and pulling up old phone numbers. The backlit keypad and LCD screen make it easy to see in dim light, which is great when I'm screening calls during a movie. The phone is also incredibly customizable, including lots of ringtone choices.

Two Handset Connect-to-Cell Answering System – Review

December 06, 2013

This VTech Connect-to-Cell phone can be paired with up to two Bluetooth mobile phones so that both incoming landline calls and calls on your iPhone can be answered on its handsets. In addition, you can choose to place cellular or a landline calls from these phones.

Accessing your mobile phone via the Connect-to-Cell feature works just fine. The question is: Why would you want to place a cellular call from your “home phone”? It seems to be a solution for which there isn't a real problem. Sure, there are times when your mobile phone is in another room and it's more convenient to answer from the nearest phone, but if you own a mobile phone, chances are that it will be close at hand at all times.

VTech Video Doorbell Review

December 06, 2013

Installation and use is pretty simple, the only part that can be tricky is the doorbell. You have a couple of options. You can connect it to your existing doorbell and you have a choice between having it battery powered or running it off of a power cord.

Now for the fun stuff! The VTech Audio/Video Doorbell works like this. Your guest simply rings the doorbell button, and your phones inside the house start ringing or making your set doorbell sound. At that point, you can see who is at your door through the video screen on the phone. You can even speak to the person at the front door.

Four Things - Then You're Done With Dad!

This two-in-one cordless answering system and video monitor combines a versatile phone with a digital-camera doorbell, as well as a convenient connection to your front door. You can easily talk to visitors or observe them from inside the home.

Affordable and Easy Doorbell Video from VTech

December 01, 2013

This would be the perfect solution to a number of common situations. An elderly person living alone, a teenager home alone, or a family that likes to shop online and gets frequent deliveries, not that I would know anything about that.

The VTech 7121-2 does more than just provide live video to the handset. You also have the option of turning on the intercom so you can talk with the visitor at your door (tell the UPS driver it’s ok to leave the package), and it automatically takes a still photo of everyone who rings your doorbell, even when you’re not home allowing you to see who’s been coming around during the day. Another surprise feature, especially at such an affordable price, is automatic night vision so you can see after dark.

VTech Retro Phone with Connect to Cell Review

November 27, 2013

I was instantly impressed with the design and feel of the Vtech Retro phone, and how perfect for my home office. The design looks like the classic corded 1960s retro telephones. It also has a cute rotary-inspired keypad and dials with the push-button keypad, just like a classic rotary telephone. This phone is also jammed packed with great features such as: Make and receive landline and cellular calls, Store 200 directory entries from up to 2 different cell phones so there is no need to input names and numbers into your cordless phone system. , Face-down charging, Caller ID/Call Waiting that stores 50 calls and more!

I love the connect to BLUETOOTH feature allowing cellular phones to make and receive calls with the ease and comfort of a home phone system. Now I can avoid the mad dash I really do make just to catch the call on my cell before it goes to voicemail.

The cordless handset rests face down on the charger to maintain its classic style. Handset and base speakerphones, along with backlit keypad and display. DECT 6.0 Digital technology,and up to 14 minutes of recording time. So many more awesome features. If your into the retro look or just want something unique this phone is for you.

5 Minute Rocky Road Fudge

November 25, 2013

My very, VERY favorite feature of the VTech phone DS6670-6C is the headset that came with it. It has saved me SO many times! I love being able to have long conversations with my sisters while cooking in the kitchen or making 5 Minute Rocky Road Fudge. I can cook, I can check email…heck – I can even clean! (Not that cleaning tops my list of things I want to do…)

Of course the boys love it too! They can talk to Grandma AND keep playing at the same time! Maybe have a quick snack…these little boys are such multi-taskers :)

True Story of a Multi-Tasking Mom

November 25, 2013

I have been so flustered lately. I was in a desperate need of something to make mommy life a wee bit more organized and a heck of a lot easier. Luckily I was introduced to the VTech DS6670-6C.

Every morning, I sit with my cup of coffee and my day planner to organize and plan the day. With the hands free headset I can easily write down appointments, notes, confirmation numbers etc. easily in my planner all the while sipping that glorious cup of coffee or brushing my daughter's hair; giving my Super Mom multi-tasking powers.

Ever have a super important phone call to be on, but your cell phone is stuck on a charger and you can't just stay attached to the outlet it is hooked up to? The VTech DS6670-6C has a great feature that lets me sync my cell phone {and my husband's too} to the VTech system so I can still be on the phone call while my cell phone is charging, and for even more mobility I could use the awesome hands free headset too.

How do You Juggle it All Each Day?

November 22, 2013

As a mom, I rely on my phone even more than in my pre-motherhood days. I use it to capture photos, stay updated on social media, check email, access my schedule and calendar, make to-do lists and grocery lists… And on and on and on. And as someone who runs a business online, any time I’m out of the house {because I’m a crazy-OCD-workaholic} I’m constantly checking my email on my phone, tweeting, checking in on Foursquare, Instagramming everything I do, etc. Which brings me to the cool new product I want to share, and why it’s so cool – it’s called the DS6670-6C, and it’s a perfect solution to some of my phone-related problems. It’s not a smartphone, but it is a smart little cookie. Learn why….

At first, honestly, I was pretty skeptical about this whole VTech Phone thing. I mean, we don’t even have a home phone line. And why would I need a cordless phone that connects to my cell, when I can just use my cell? But then, I learned more, and holy helpfulness, Batman, this baby is a lifesaver.

VTech building great phones, its the perfect gift!

November 17, 2013

This holiday VTech brings to you their 2 Handset ConnecttoCell™ Answerin System with CallerID/CallWaiting.This great phone system offers more than just a land-line, it also offers its users the ability to make and receive both land line and cellular calls. VTech made sure that all the latest technology is built right inside this phone. Some of the greatest features I also like about the phone is its intercom ability, streamline throughout the house and hands-free capability.

Retro Phone with Connect to Cell

VTech Retro Cordless Phone

November 17, 2013

While the age of landline, bulky phones with a receiver are long gone, those images still manage to stir up a nostalgic feeling. At least for us anyways! The VTech Retro Cordless Phone gives that you nostalgic feeling but with the latest technology must-haves and sleek styling. It also comes in all sorts of colors. You get it in bold tangerine, pearl white, dark lux, light blue and black, all of which are anything but subtle.

VTech DS6670-6C Connect to Cell Phone System & Cordless Headset

November 15, 2013

I'm so excited to share a new tech­nol­ogy prod­uct that I'm absolutely lov­ing. We received a VTech DS6670-6C Con­nect to Cell Phone Sys­tem (with cord­less head­set) for review and it's awe­some!! It makes my some­times crazy, mutli-tasking mom life just a lit­tle bit eas­ier through­out the day — and I love things that make life easier.

Ever acci­den­tally leave your cell phone in the other room and miss calls? Or, leave it on silent and miss calls? Maybe you're like me and the phone some­times goes miss­ing dur­ing the day (thanks to "mommy brain" or lit­tle ones who have helped them­selves to your phone)…and then you miss calls because you can't find it. Or, do you have a dead zone in your house where your cell phone just never seems to work? The VTech DS6670-6C phone sys­tem can help any of that! Seri­ously, all, this phone sys­tem is SO cool! And, you don't even need a land­line to take advan­tage of this phone! You can use this sys­tem with any BLUETOOTH–enabled cellular phone!

An easier way to multitask

November 15, 2013

Anything that can make life easier for busy mothers is a great thing. The VTech DS6670-6C Connect to Cell phone system allows families to stay connected and moms to multitask. Best yet, you don't even need a landline to do it.

Place your phone wherever it gets the best signal in your home. Pick up one of the five handsets to receive or make calls, or just use the headset. You don't have to miss phone calls, and you can clean, cook, fold laundry, change diapers, sew, etc. at the same time!

Get It All Done with VTech Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset

November 14, 2013

With 5 handsets, it's perfect for any sized home. In ours, we put the main base in the living room where our family spends the majority of their time. On the main base there's a spot to charge one cordless handset and the headset. The main base also includes an answering machine where you can listen to messages but they can also be retrieved from any of the connected handsets The stand out feature (among many) is the Connect to Cell option. You can pair two cellphones with the system which allows you to receive your cell phone calls on any of the VTech handsets. Here's the thing, I love my cell phone dearly, but most of of the time, I have no idea where it is. The kids use it to play games, I snap pictures and leave it in random places and it's usually on mute. If you call, I probably won't answer. But with the VTech system, I can receive my cell phone calls through any of the handsets spread throughout the house and never miss a call.

The Perfect Phone for Moms with Busy Families!

November 14, 2013

We still have a "house" phone. I know that's becoming rare these days but I just can't bring myself to rely solely on a cell phone as my home number. I like the security of knowing I have my landline as a backup phone in case of an emergency or spotty cell service. Plus, I just prefer talking on a "real" phone and I'm certain this won’t change any time soon, especially since I’ve fallen in tech-love with the DS6670-6C cordless phone from VTech.

Holiday Gift Ideas: The VTech DS6670 Wireless Phone W/ Headset & Connect To Cell Technology

November 13, 2013

I am always not on the go and I do not carry my phone with me all the time. So when I heard that we were getting a VTech Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset. This cordless phone setup does way more than just provide a wireless land line. This phone connects up to 2 different Bluetooth capable cell phones to our VTech DS6670-6c home phone system. When I am home I use my home phone for making calls because sometimes I just don't know where my cell phone is so this allows me to use my home phones to answer and take calls from my cell phone.

On the handset is your typical HOME (call) call and OFF buttons but there are also 2 additional buttons that are labeled "1 CELL" and "2 CELL" for each phone hooked up. So now when my cell phone rings and it's in an entirely different part of our home I can answer it from any base I am near. And I can set different ring tones to indicate if it's a call for home or a cell phone.

VTech’s New Phone Helps Moms! (No Home Phone Service Required!)

November 12, 2013

If you are a mom, like me, I'm sure you have millions of things you have to get done in your day. If you're a work-at-home mom, also like me, that list is even longer. Between juggling my blog, my Thirty-One business, and my family life, things are pretty hectic. All I have to say is thank goodness for planners – and now I'm so thankful for the VTech DS6670-6C phone to help me!

Since your cell phone is connected to your VTech phone, if you get a phone call to your cell phone, the VTech phone will ring in the ringtone that your cell phone is set – and you can answer from it as well. No need to search for your cell phone! I know I have missed many phone calls because I couldn't find my cell phone – it likes to get stuck in the couch cushions or Miss Riley hides it on me. I don't have to worry about missing an important call anymore, though! Such a blessing!

The New VTech DS6670-6C for Multitasking Moms

November 12, 2013

I love that I now have a solution to my cell phone issue. I have 5 handsets to place in the different rooms in our house. I can pick up and make calls using the VTtech DS6670-6C from any handset as long as my cell phone is somewhere in the house. It’s perfect!

The VTech DS6670-6C also comes with a headset so when I’m working online and need handsfree talking, I have it. That or talking while juggling the million other things I do in a day.

VTech Cordless Telephone With Bluetooth For Multi-tasking

November 12, 2013

Do you like to multi-task at home? Have you been frustrated when you missed an important call from your cell phone? Are you tired of your old telephone where you need to run for it to the other room of your house when it’s ringing? Situation like this is very familiar to any Moms out there. We anticipate phone calls everyday from our family, relatives and friends, and even appointment reminders that we don’t want to miss.

I’m excited to introduce you guys to this new DS6670-6C that I received from Vtech Phones. I’ve been eying for a cordless phone set that would replace our old phone line at home. We have the kind that has short coiled wire and my husband said it has been his telephone since graduate school. What really frustrates me is that I can’t hear it’s ring when I’m upstairs or doing laundry in the back room or even worse that the phone rings in the middle of my cooking in the kitchen

VTech-A Phone for Multi-Tasking Moms

November 11, 2013

I am really excited to tell you about VTech's newest phone. The DS6670-6C is the perfect phone for busy moms who always have so much going on. It has so many features that you'll be blown away! We had an older VTech phone prior to getting this one. We've had it for YEARS. I mean, a very long time. Although it was not as advanced as this newer one, one thing I can say about VTech phones for sure, is that they last. They are quality phones that last a long time. SO when I got this phone in the mail, I was super excited to try it out. It has 5 handsets. FIVE, I tell you! Black and white ones, which I think is perfect, to match ANY room decor, right?

One of the great features of this phone is that it comes with a cordless headset. Perfect! I don't have to hold a phone to my ear while I am busy around the house dealing with supper or kids or whatever else that keeps me busy. This is a great bonus! I can talk hands-free with no problem, anywhere in my house!

Why does the phone ring when I'm busy?

November 11, 2013

With three kids, school, and blogging I'm always busy. It just so happens that when I'm the busiest the phone rings and I have to drop everything to pick it up. Well not any more. With the new VTech DS6670-6C that is no longer a problem. Not only does it connect to your cell phone so you only have one phone to look for but it comes with a hands free device that helps you continue talking while still keeping your hands busy.

While cooking, while cleaning, while doing yard work, don't be afraid you'll miss an important call anymore.

A few more arms for mom!

November 11, 2013

I run a daycare from my home. This means I have to not only take calls, but lead in the childrens learning at the same time. Most moms are great at doing more than one thing at a time, but it would be nice if we could add a few arms to help juggle the demands of the day. For me specifically, the hardest thing to do is to answer business/client calls while changing diapers/creating art/feeding a baby/ or putting together a puzzle. What would really help would be if I could duplicate my cell so that while one charges, another that preferable has a hands free set, could be near by for me to answer without dropping everything.

Don't you love it when someone else has your same issue and happens to work it out to create a solution? Well VTech seems to have found a way to help me out. VTech first made its market debut in 1976 and since then has become one of the top three competitors for cordless communication in the United States. It is called the DS6670-6C. This is a phone that allows for you to connect not one but two different cell phones to 5 headsets, including a handsfree set which is perfect for my particular issue. Now I can charge my cell and have a handset in each room that we use, plus the hands free set means I won't miss a client call while making lunch, feeding a baby, preparing bottles/sippies, and changing diapers. I can set up both my husband and my number to this system and we can see who is being called. This way when he is out lifting in the garage I don't have to stop the dishes I'm washing, dry my hands, find his phone and run it out to him preferable before the call is missed.

VTech DS6670-6C Connect to Cell Review

November 11, 2013

I'm busy. A busy mom most days. Toys are exploding in the kid's rooms. Dishes need washing in the kitchen. I have to put up clean laundry throughout the house while chasing down dust bunnies with the vaccum. I am rarely in just one room of the house all day. I'm traveling all throughout the house and surprisingly I don't always have my cell phone glued to my hip (which seems like the case with a lot of people these days). Sometimes my phone is on silent, left in another room, or lost among the kids things when they decide to run off with it (good thing I have good cell phone parental controls). During these times I miss phone calls.

Having the VTech DS6670-6C answering system makes this problem none existent. The VTech DS6670-6C has 5 handsets (3 black and 2 white) and a cordless headset (you can use a headband or ear piece with it). The most amazing part is that you can pair up to two cell phones to the system enabling you to never miss a cell phone call just because you can't hear it when it's left in another room.

Minimizing the Risk of Cell Phone Radiation with a Headset

November 11, 2013

Since I am a mother to three very young girls–age 5, 3 and 1–it is very helpful to have a hands-free phone. I recently started using the new DS6670-6C hands-free phone from VTech, and I've found it to be very helpful for multi-tasking!


Instead of balancing the phone on between my ear and my shoulder and the baby on one hip while cooking, I can now more safely cook with at least one of my hands totally free. (And it definitely helps my neck to get fewer crinks in it!!)

Not only this, but I am excited that VTech's DS6670-6C hands-free phone is actually compatible with cell phones! There is a button to switch on the cell phone component, so you can use the technology to go hands-free with a cell phone as well!

The Cordless Phone for Mom from VTech

November 08, 2013

Now, I mostly use my cell phone at home even though we do have a home phone line. But have you ever tried tucking a cell phone between your ear and shoulder while you also folded laundry or chopped veggies for dinner? Yeah, doesn't work so well, does it? Enter the VTech DS6670-6C, which I think is the perfect phone for any mom who is busy at home all day long.

The DS6670-6C is perfect for the multi-tasking mom with a full house. With five handsets and a headset, mom and her whole family can stay connected throughout the house. The headset makes hand-free communication easy while tending to other work and responsibilities. Oh my goodness – I LOVE this headset! I can't believe I waited this long to get one. I was able to talk to my sister while doing and afternoon pick up of the house without juggling phones and toys at the same time.

VTech Holiday Gift Basket

November 05, 2013

Now that November is in full swing it is time to start thinking about the holidays. How do you stay in touch with the ones you love? I am not really an email kind of person and calling people from my cell phone doesn't work because I don't have great cell reception. I want to be able to talk to my friends and family any time and want a dependable phone that won't break the bank. The VTech CS6829 is an affordable and dependable cordless phone and answering system.

VTech Cordless Phone & Answering Machine Review

November 04, 2013

We got the model CS6829 to review. It's a Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting.

We toyed with putting it on the wall so that it's out of the way and not taking up space on a table or counter, but then decided we didn't want any additional holes in the wall, so for now, it's in Mike's office on the computer desk, well away from listening ears if someone happened to be home.

I can tell you that the feature I really like is that 50 names and numbers that it can store for me! It gets so hard sometimes to remember every single person's number and with this new phone, my most frequently called numbers will know be much easier to use! Another great aspect is that it can store up to 50 Call Waiting ID's, something that our other phone could not do. I like that I can scroll down and see who called but didn't leave a message.

VTech Audio Video Doorbell System IS7121-2 review

October 30, 2013

The VTech Audio Video Doorbell System (model IS7121-2) is a base and handset DECT 6 phone system for your house with additional camera doorbell that includes night vision ability.

VTech IS7121-2 Audio/Video Doorbell Review

October 27, 2013

Home security has become a big issue now that there are mobile devices, but the majority of these videocamera products work inside the home. That might be okay if all you care about is who is already inside, but what about someone on the porch or knocking on the front door — what do you do then? Not much if you've a mobile device, but plenty if you've VTech's IS7121-2 Audio/Video Doorbell. That's because it doesn't just connect you to whoever is out there regardless of where you are inside, but it also provides two forms of visual confirmation so you don't have to rely on someone saying "UPS" or "Mailman." And it gives you a full functioning landline-based phone center/answering machine too.

The Audio/Video Doorbell consists of three parts: a videocamera module that goes on the outside, a base unit and two cordless phones (plus a charging cradle) which charge when not being used. Breaking it down even further, the videocamera module has a push-button that rings to the phones, each of which has a 1.8-inch LCD color video panel. If set to default, up will pop a still picture of whoever has pushed the button — day or night since the camera's night vision enabled — while at the same time, a voice will announce the caller by name (providing that a subscription to Caller I.D. is in effect). There's also the option to stream video once the connection is made — limited in time but long enough to see who's who. Memory holds up to the last 100 pictures so if someone shows up and then leaves when you're not in, you know who that is. But if the button isn't pressed, nothing happens — there is no motion-detection features.

VTech Audio/Video Doorbell Answering System (IS7121-2)

October 23, 2013

The folks at VTech, best known for their affordable home phone systems, have recently introduced the Audio/Video Doorbell Answering System IS7121-2, a hybrid cordless phone system that includes two telephone handsets and a doorbell unit with a built-in camera and microphone. Billed as caller ID for your front porch, the IS71721-2 provides a live video feed from your front door and takes a snapshot of whomever has come a-calling, but the use of a low-end camera limits what you'll see when the bell rings and the camera angle is too narrow. On the plus side, it's a snap to install and functions flawlessly as a cordless phone system.

The IS7121-2 contains two handsets, a base receiver, a charger for the second handset, a doorbell with a built-in video camera and microphone, alkaline batteries, an AC transformer for the camera, rechargeable batteries for the handsets, and mounting hardware. The doorbell measures 4.7 by 1.9 by 1.5 inches (HWD) and is black with a silver doorbell button in the center of the faceplate. Above the button are a camera, two night vision infrared LEDs, and an LED indicator that lights up when the doorbell has been rung. To the right of the doorbell button is a small embedded microphone and below the button are a speaker and a silver VTech logo.

VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting

October 18, 2013

The VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting is an ideal option for the budget-conscious style maven, this sleek cordless phone with Digital Answering System makes staying on top of calls a cinch.

Transform Your Home into a Smart Home

October 05, 2013

A doorbell that makes everyone that comes to your house feel really, really uncomfortable. Halloween is going to be a hoot. With the VTech IS7100 series, you get two main pieces – a cordless home phone and a video doorbell. The doorbell has a camera and a microphone, so you can tell whether or not to pretend no one's home just by looking at your phone. The cordless phone features a color display that can stream video from the doorbell or show stills. You can even get missed calls from your front door – the doorbell will snap a picture whenever someone rings the doorbell, so if you're out, you can check to see if anyone came by when you get back.

VTech CS6829 Cordless Telephone And Answering System Review

September 30, 2013

As I use my land line a lot for calls to companies, I find that I'm either navigating automated systems or getting put on hold a lot. The CS6829 handles this with ease through the use of its built-in speakerphone. On hold for 10 minutes and need your hands to stir dinner? Not a problem with this phone. Whether using the handset or the speakerphone, the phone has delivered clear sound, courtesy of its DECT 6.0 digital technology.You remember back in the day when cordless phones first came out and you could get interference from your neighbor's phone? DECT digital technology makes sure that doesn't happen.

The handset has a backlit keyad and display, which you will know is helpful if you've ever tried to make a call in the middle of the night and weren't able to see what buttons you were pressing. The phone has an ECO Mode, which will help conserve power and enable the phone's battery to last longer and perform its best. You can adjust the volume of the phone on the handset. The phone has a quiet mode, which when activated silences the ringer both on the handset and the base.

VTech Cordless Phone System

September 24, 2013

Bye bye are the days of…"Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?" Now that we have the new VTech Cordless answering system with Caller ID and Call Waiting, we can hear the caller on the other end crystal clear. No static, no interference…just crisp, clear reception.

VTech Dual Handset Cordless Answering System review

September 23, 2013

There are days, especially those when I get my cell phone bill, that I long for a landline. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. There are so many benefits to having a landline telephone system like the VTech Dual Handset Cordless Answering System. Lately, the most important of these is the fact that my teen loses his phone constantly and I need to keep in touch with him when he’s home and I’m not.

I like the VTech system because it has a speakerphone for conference calls and both ends can speak at the same time – no more cutting each other off. Also, two words – Caller ID. A must have. Having Call Waiting is nice, especially since it displays the name, number, time and date of incoming calls on an easy-to-read illuminated LCD display screen.

Check out the VTech Cordless Phone

September 19, 2013

For me the phone is perfect and I wouldn't change anything. I love than I can expand it when we need more phones and the features I use are included. You honestly can't beat the price of this phone especially since its from VTech, which is known for quality products! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new cordless phone. Additional handsets are only $15 and with the option to expand up to five, any household should really be covered!


VTech Phone Review

September 16, 2013

With so much more than just the basics, the VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID & Call Waiting will surely fit nicely in anyone's home. Its sleek design is certainly an eye-catcher for everyone and its ability to conserve power and, therefore, cut back on energy costs is a huge bonus. Having just bought our new home and being on the fence with the to-get or not-to-get a home phone, the energy efficiency feature was definitely a big selling point for us with this particular phone.

Of course, there's also the aforementioned caller ID and call waiting. For us, caller ID is a huge bonus. Ever since getting my cell phone, I've always been the girl that (and I know I'm not along here) ignores just about any number that I do not know. Normally, I do this under the assumption that "if it's important, they'll leave a message." Now, with the VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID & Call Waiting, not only can I screen our calls and ignore those that I do not want to take, but I can also rest assured that if a call is, in fact, an important one, the phone's digital answering system will get it for me. With up to fourteen minutes of answering machine recording time, no important calls will ever, truly, be missed.

VTech's Doorbell Phones

September 01, 2013

My husband is a bit of a practical joker. When it came time to test it out, I heard the doorbell loud and clear. VTech's Doorbell phone takes a snapshot whenever the bell is rung. When I answered it, I saw a picture of my husband holding a butcher knife. I said, "Who is it?" and he said, "Could you help me, my car broke down and my daughter is cold and needs to get warm." And that's when it hit me; this is something that could save my life. You can see who's there and even though they talk a good talk, I can see if I feel comfortable opening up my door or not. One of its features is the ability to take photographs or stream video, or audio for that matter. I can see how this can make my home a safer place. It also has night vision in case your front light goes out (or is put out by a would be attacker). Oh and every time the doorbell rings, it takes a photo of them. When you get home, you can look through the photos to see who all came by when you were gone. That's a great feature in itself!

The phones can also be used like a Walkie-Talkie so if you want to stay connected with someone else, you can. They are wireless hand-held phones so you can take them anywhere in your home and still talk, answer the phone, and see who's at the door.

VTech Dual Handset Cordless Answering System

September 01, 2013

Speaker Phone — I admit I don't use them regularly but when I do I want the person on the other end to be able to hear me as well as myself. My children talk to my husband regularly on the phone, so I love that the kids and I can easily hear my husband and he too through this easy to use speakerphone. This is by far the best speaker phone we've tried!

I like the quiet mode button — so when it's ringing (and waking my sleepers,) I can quickly quiet it.

The ECO Mode Power, which manages the consumption for optimal battery performance. This is a must for us these days because we have a large house and with this one base you acn have up to 5 handsets — I love this feature but a lot of times phones get left around and do not get placed back on the base for a longer period of time. The ECO Mode helps conserve the battery life longer, so they can stay off the phone jack for a longer period of time.

VTech Cordless Answering System for Back-to-College

August 26, 2013

For the College Student: The CS6829 comes with everything a college student wants and needs. For example, a Digital Answering System to catch up on missed calls when they were studying. The Caller ID will ensure they catch all the calls from mom and Call Waiting lets them toggle between study dates and …mom. And of course a Speakerphone so they can take a call, even when their hands are full of books and calculators.

For Home: If you get jealous of the quality of your college students phone, you can buy one for home use too. It’s expandable to up to 5 handsets. Plus, it can handle all the people you want to know and call, with its 50 name and number phone directory and 50 name and number Caller ID history. (I know that comes in handy for me, since I rarely listen to messages!)

VTech Cordless Answering System with CallerID/Call Waiting

August 26, 2013

We absolutely love VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID and Call Waiting. It has a Backlit Keypad and Display that is bright enough to see even in dim light. When we are not home the answering machine records our important messages and we can retrieve caller information with the Caller ID feature that records the callers name, number and the date and time so we never miss a call.

VTech Cordless Answering System Review

August 22, 2013

First, I love the black and silver colors. It looks great in my office. The handset is very light weight, and the numbers of the keyboard and screen are both large and clear to read. The back-lit display makes it easy to see even in the dark. I learned almost immediately that the battery has a long life even when it gets left on the charger--this is a bad habit my tween daughter has so its an important feature for me. The volume can be adjusted to the perfect level for each individual's preference. Another feature I love is the ability to turn off the ringer. When the babies are sleeping or I'm working on my novels I don't like to be interrupted by a ringing phone.

The answering system has lots of great benefits too. It stores up to fifty messages and you can replay them as many times as you need to. It also has a built it caller ID system so the name, number and time off the call are all listed on the handset. If you miss someone important, you will be able to go through missed calls and return them with just the click on a button. If you still use a land-line, the VTech CS6829 Cordless Answering System is a wonderful, affordable option.

VTech Connect to Cell Review: Never Miss a Cellphone Call at Home Again

August 21, 2013

The VTech Connect to Cell Phone System with Caller ID uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your cell phone so that you can make and receive calls on a landline, whether you have one connected or not. We use this system to connect our cell phones only and it works great. I continue to be amazed. It’s like I have a landline without paying for one!

Just today, I received a cell call, complete with caller id on the VTech system even while my cell phone was on another floor in the house. I would have missed the call if I didn’t have this phone system.

VTech Dual Handset Cordless Answering System

August 16, 2013

I have found VTech Dual Handset Cordless Answering System to be the perfect phone for any busy household. With the handset speakerphone, I can use the amazing speakerphone that is on this system with just a touch of the button. Not only does it have a speakerphone, but I find this speakerphone to be one of the clearest ones I have used. And that is for both ends, not only is the caller quality very clear, but I do not have to yell into the phone so that the caller can hear me. It makes having a conversation, well the way it should be, even when I have kids running around and a baby screaming. I love that I can use the speakerphone during those times when I have a baby in one arm, and I am multitasking with the other. Which means that I do not have to worry about missing that phone call. I also get the caller ID feature, which is always a plus, and with the light up keypad and LCD screen, I can see what I am doing, even when I have the lights out to get the house to calm down in the evenings, or for when I have to reach for the phone at night. Oh, and just like the other great phones that I adore from the VTech line of phones, I can add multiple handsets, up to 5! And to top it off, when I am not able to answer the phone or for when I am out, the answering machine has up to 14 minutes of recording time!!!

VTech Cordless Answering System Review

August 15, 2013

The Vtech CS6829 Cordless and Answering System is a single handset phone that is convenient to use. It offers a feature-rich phone with Quiet Mode, ECO Mode and DECT 6.0 for the best audio quality! This phone offers cost-conscious consumers a dependable phone with loads of functionality at an affordable price.

With this answering system, you can enjoy a speakerphone that can keep up with your calls, increase participation by allowing both ends to speak and be heard at the same time. This allows for conversations that are true to life. The quiet mode allows one to silence a ringer on the handset and base unit immediately or for an extended period of time.

Get Landline phone features from your cell phone

August 06, 2013

As far as things have come with phones, especially cell phones, why I cannot get a signal in my bedroom is crazy. My house is less than 2,000 square feet, is above ground and does not have 2 foot thick metal walls. Yet, I have to step 5 feet from my bedroom and into the hallway where I will get a clear as a bell signal! If I walk back into my room, my call gets dropped! With the latest technology from VTech and their new Connect to Cell phone system, I can get the features I need in my land line phone from my cell phone. This is definitely worth any cost, but the solution was not that expensive.

Because we are a mobile device family, we have several chargers and cords for each device. Add our landline phones and their bases to that, and you have a lot going on! In order to streamline some of the devices I am using, to get landline phone features from your cell phone would be great. With the Connect to Cell from VTech, I can bypass the landline and get the features I love on my cell. When I want to have a 3-way call with my mom and my oldest, I can use the Connect To Cell. If you are a family that does not even have a landline, this is a great solution for you as well. You can get the landline perks without the actual phone.

Entryway Blues? 5 Ways to Dress Up Your Front Door

August 05, 2013

The VTech Doorbell Phone has been really nice to have. I mean, I can know who is at my door, like if there is someone wanting to sell me something, I can see. I have found it to be very nice during those nap times, when Wyatt is sleeping. Instead of waking him up, I can get a photo of who is outside sent right to the handset. Not only does it make it easier for me when packages or salesmen show up, but it eases my husbands mind when I am home with the kids during the day and he is not home. It helps keep me and the kids safer, by me knowing who is out there before I go to answer the door. I also know, that this will make one of those must have products to get an elderly loved one or for someone who has a hard time getting up and down. I know that when I was pregnant with Wyatt, this would have really come in handy. Another plus is that I can add multiple handsets to this, so that I can put one in every room! I have found the VTech Doorbell Phone to be great because of the fact that it makes answering the door safer for me and my family since we can see exactly who is at my door! So if you want to have a sense of security for your family when it comes to who is at the door, as well as being able to avoid being a victim of the dreaded ding dong ditch prank, then get the VTech Doorbell Phone today!

Saving You From The Phone Dash – VTech Connect to Cell

August 01, 2013

We are now using the VTech Connect to Cell. We can have one upstairs and one downstairs. It easily connected to 2 cell phones via bluetooth in record time (seriously, push a button on he main phone base, and turn the bluetooth on our your cell phone). Then they connect. You can see on the phone they are connected because you’ll see the bluetooth symbol and the 1 and/or 2 depending on which phone is connected.

We don’t have any dead zones in our house, but I know a lot people near me do. So you can set your cell phone in a place where you are certain to get service, and then connect it to the VTech Connect to Cell and you now have the same response as having a landline, but without one. If you do have a landline, you can also set it up to the phone as well.

When you receive a call on your cell phone, the VTech Connect to Cell also rings and tells you which phone the call is coming from. You can also sync your contacts so their name shows up as well (only 200). Thus ending your mad dash to find and answer your phone.

Convenience of Cell, Ease of a Landline: VTech Connect to Cell System

July 30, 2013

I see a couple of major advantages after testing out the VTech Connect to Cell system. First, many of us have given up our landlines in favor of our smartphone. Who needs that additional telephone bill for a service you’re not really using. We always had a VTech cordless phone for our land line, now the VTech Connect to Cell system now gives us multiple handsets just like we had before. My wife and I can talk with our family together without hovering over one cell phone speaker. Second, I can transfer all my cell phone contacts into this VTech Connect to Cell phone. At the touch of a button, I can call anyone on my cell phone contact list. Very convenient.

The VTech Connect to Cell two handset system is reasonably priced for a home phone (starting around $50), enhance the cell phone experience in the home, and is a great option for those without a landline. Two different models both connect with up to two cellphones and store up to 200 cellphone directory entries, so mobile calls are accessible from the comfort of a cordless handset. Users can add up to five handsets on both models, effectively ending the mad dash to find the cellphone, because the call can be answered from any of the handsets. An added benefit for those who like a central home answering machine for landline calls, one model comes with a digital answering system with up to 14 minutes of recording time.

Cell Phone Always Works with VTech Connect to Cell

July 30, 2013

Thank goodness for the Vtech Connect to Cell phone system. Instead of dropped calls, I can grab the phone and talk to her. I can hear her clear as day and be there for her when she needs me. Vtech Connect to Cell is a hand held set that uses Bluetooth technology to connect to my cell phone.

It looks just like a landline phone, except for the awesome extras. The Vtech phone I received has 2 handsets, a lighted keypad (for those late night calls), answering machine, speakerphone, and caller ID among other extras. With the two handsets I can connect two cell phones (my husband’s and mine).

The Vtech Connect to Cell system saves battery life on our cell phones, can be used as an intercom between the 2 handsets and stores my contacts from my cell.

Benefits of the VTech Connect to Cell System

July 30, 2013

Like most families, we own a few cell phones in our home and we rely on them quite a bit. I know that, personally, I need to be able to count on my cell phone whether I am at home or away. I seems as though when I am out, I am typically talking, texting, tweeting, posting to Facebook, or uploading pictures to Instagram. All of this eventually drains my battery. So, when I am home, my cell phone needs to be plugged into a wall charging. The VTech Connect to Cell System allows me take a make calls from my cell phone… without actually having it in my hand or even near me.

The VTech Connect to Cell™ system is loaded with plenty of benefits for your family as well as mine. I have the VTech DS6511-2 that comes with two hand sets and includes Caller ID/Call Waiting. Connecting my cell phone to my VTech System is incredibly easy. Your phone simply needs to have Bluetooth capabilities. Connecting the devices allows you to share your contacts from your cellular device to the VTech Connect to Cell System. Not to mention, you can even connect two mobile devices to the Connect to Cell System so that it funnels two cell phone numbers into one system.

An End to the Dead Spot

July 30, 2013

One of my favorite things about using the VTech Connect to Cell Phone System is that I don’t have to constantly have my phone near me so that I can hear it ring. It is nice to not worry about where it is all the time.

But I also really like that I can talk without worrying about having a cell phone too close to my head all the time. I have a special phone case that is supposed to redirect the radiation, but I figure that you can never be too safe with that.

Make The Call: Maximize your home phone with VTech

July 28, 2013

With VTech’s Connect to Cell phone, you can pair your cell phone to the system for optimal signal and convenience with two handsets. The system can work through your cell carrier (without a landline service) or in conjunction with the service. This is very convenient in case you don’t want to use a landline.

With VTech’s Connect to Cell phone system you can enjoy the ease and functionality of your cell phone with the quality and security of a landline. Now you don’t have to worry about cell phone dead spots in the home, dropped calls, or even a missed call because you can’t locate your mobile. This has happened to me too many times and glad that we have this new VTech system in the house so this won’t happen anymore. Unless of course, I want it to go to voicemail after seeing who is calling. Isn’t it nice to see who is calling through!

Technological advances that change the world (Translation below)

July 26, 2013

The advice of our parents "Never open the door to a stranger", has become the premise of creating the company VTech IS7121-2, commercial name given to c system that lets you see and speak from any instead of your home with the person who rings the bell of the outer door.

The color video camera is activated when a visitor rings the doorbell and automatically takes a photo and sends it to the backlit screen (1.8 inches), a phone headset. From there, you can hold a conversation and receive live video.

Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset

July 25, 2013

When I was able to check out the VTech 2 Handset Connect To Cell Answering System with Cordless Headset, I was very excited!! Could this mean I could now not worry about cell reception where we live??

My absolute favorite feature (besides not having dropped calls anymore or bad reception) is the hands free headset it comes with. With a fussy baby and two busy kids, this mama has NO time to sit and talk on the phone, let alone hold one in my hand while trying to get everything else done. So the cordless headset is my favorite feature!!! LOVE.

Digital Phones: Yes, People Still Have Landlines!

July 22, 2013

VTech CS6419-2 are pretty neat, in my opinion. They're DECT 6.0 technology, which means they operate at the 1.9 GHz spectrum band, meaning they won't be interfering with (or be interfered by) your other wireless devices. They have the ability to transfer calls between each other, which is useful if one phone's battery is getting low and you want to switch to the other handheld without dropping your call. (This can also be useful when you have one phone located downstairs in the living room and another other upstairs in the bedroom. When you answer the living room phone only to find out it's your in-laws asking to speak with your wife, you can transfer the call to your bedroom phone, where your wife has been reading and watching her favorite TV series.

Harold tells me the digital phone he's using has far superior sound quality to any cell phone he's used thus far. He plugs his digital phone into a box he purchased from Skype, which enables him to use his Skype account to call any cell phone or landline phone (or to receive calls from either). This solution didn't work so well with a cheap digital phone he had, though, so he recommends buying one that rates well on sound quality. "It's not worth buying the cheapest digital phones available only to find that you'd be better off using a straight string tied to two cans," he says. (I seem to have a vague memory of what he's referring to with the cans, but when it comes to Harold, one never knows.)

2 Handset Connect to Cell Answering System with Cordless Headset

July 22, 2013

The 2 Handset Connect to Cell Answering System with Cordless Headset is awesome! This system has nearly anything that you can imagine on a phone. It comes with a main docking station with a cordless handset and an answering machine, as well as a place to store and charge the cordless headset! It comes with an extra base that does not need to be plugged into a telephone jack, just a power outlet. This phone has the added feature of allowing cell phone calls to be received to the system. I have used this phone and it works so well. All phone calls have been clear on both the handsets and the headset. We have used our cell phones through the system as well without problem! If you are looking for a very affordable system with great functionality… then this is the system you need!

VTech cordless phone review

July 17, 2013

For any homeowner, the VTech 2 Handset Answering System with Audio/Video Doorbell is the ultimate tool in home security. Unlike the average cordless phone on the market, this one combines a cordless telephone with a digital camera doorbell and video monitor. It's simple to install and connect and, especially if you have children or elderly at home, will create a much more secure feeling whether you're home or not.

More Talk with VTech Connect To Cell

July 16, 2013

I missed the convenience of a land line when people called us on our cells. Usually I would forget to charge my phone or miss the call because it was lying in the bottom of my purse. That's when I heard about the Vtech Connect to Cell that allows me to hook my cell phone to my landline phone.

Best Cell/Home Phone System I have ever owned by far.....

July 13, 2013

From the VTech Site: Missed calls thanks to a misplaced cell phone at home? Not anymore with a Connect to Cell system from VTech. By leveraging Bluetooth® wireless-enabled technology, Connect to Cell makes it possible to place and receive cellular calls through a home phone system. Plus, by downloading your cellular phonebook directly onto the handsets, you'll have quick access to all your contacts from any room.

How Did I Ever Live Without This?

July 12, 2013

The Vtech 2 Handset Connect to Cell Answering System with Cordless Headset is the answer to my problem. Now I can have a hands free landline and/or cellular conversation anywhere in the house. This system includes a DECT 6.0 Cordless headset that lets you make and receive both landline AND cellular calls. It also includes a digital answering system and a full duplex handset speakerphone. What does that mean? It means I can take both cell phone calls and landline calls from this one phone using a cordless headset! No more trying to balance the phone while you work. No more running around trying to figure out exactly where your phone is when it rings. No more dead spots in the house where your cell phone won't work.

How did I ever live without a hands free cordless phone? Juggling multiple responsibilities just got so much easier. I love being able to have both hands free while I'm on the phone. If the kids need me or someone knocks at the door, I can continue my conversation and go wherever I need to. I'm not sure how I managed before I discovered this hands free cordless phone but I'm so glad I have it now.

It's a Phone, It's a Doorbell, It's The VTech Video Doorbell System

July 12, 2013

The VTech Video Doorbell System is a doorbell and a cordless phone! Its the first of its kind to combine a cordless answering system and video doorbell with a digital camera for convenience and security. The phones work like normal cordless phones but then when someone rings the doorbell it not only pops up a picture of whose at the door but it also will ring on the phone! To me having my phone ring like a doorbell is awesome because I am in the basement or backyard a lot with my kids and I will absolutely not hear the doorbell otherwise. The picture is a bonus because yes I go to the door most of the time when the doorbell rings but there is nothing worse than having my hands full to drop everything just to see that it was the mailman or UPS leaving a package on my porch. There is also the whole security thing where I don't want to go the door if I don't know the person standing there.

VTech Video Camera Doorbell Phone

July 10, 2013

We all love surprise visitors, but we'd rather be safe than sorry when it comes to unplanned house guests. The folks at VTech provide the perfect solution with their IS7100 video camera doorbell phone.

When guests ring the doorbell, your wireless camera will snap a quick picture, and send it right to your handset's 1.8" LCD screen giving you the option to stream video, audio or both with a simple press of a button. You can even find out who stopped by your front door while you were out thanks to the 100 photo storage capabilities. VTech also made sure to keep you protected in the evening, building night vision right into their camera. Maybe you don't use landlines? No problem. The company also offers the option to scoop up just the video camera doorbell.

The Case Of The Wireless Doorbell

July 09, 2013

Being frugal means getting the most out of every purchase and the VTech® Video Doorbell Two Handset Answering System is also a phone so when I am not answering the door and taking photos of those at my door, I am using the phone to make calls! The appliance has a double-duty sense to it and it makes it perfectly functional in my home! The phone has mute, flash(for call waiting) a paging system, a redial function and a handset speaker phone. The unit offers a 50 number directory for storage, speed dial and of course if you have Caller ID a log. The answering system is digital and does not sound warbly. The image that you see is a wide angled image and it is clear even when it is dark outside because there is automatic night vision. The screen is 1.8" large and it is full color LCD. The set comes with 2 handsets, a wireless doorbell and HD Audio. I love that the when the phone rings it tells you who is calling, without even having to look, it is verbal Caller ID! This is cutting edge technology and it is the first system that actually offers a phone and a digital camera. A little bonus feature that I am anticipate benefiting from is the fact that while we are gone, we can still see who stopped by through a simple review of stored photos, up to 100. I bet we get to see the little vixen pasting stuff to our front door, taping the glass with cellophane tape that does not come off of glass easily, or marking the glass up with hand prints just because she feels like it. The fact that I can now take photos of each person on the front patio is priceless and I am able to screen visitors through an intercom system rather than actually answering the door is an added perk. Installation was a breeze, and we performed the install for the unit based on an existing doorbell. One appliance to do multiple tasks eliminates the build up of junk on our counters. Less is better!

VTech IS7100 lets you know who's calling, and who's at the door

July 09, 2013

VTech IS7100 does everything that you'd expect from a cordless phone. But it's got one special little feature that sets it apart from the pack. When the phone rings, you're able to look at it, and see exactly who is calling. But what about when someone knocks at your door? Well this phone will also tell you who's there. No, it's not going to give them the name of the person, but it will show you live video feed. What's more, you can activate a two-way speaker, if you want to tell them something.

Have you ever wondered if you've had visitors while you've been away? This phone also has you covered there. It takes a still image of everyone who comes to your door, and stores them in a log for you to look at later.

Anyone Want a Home Phone To Connect to Cell Phone?

July 08, 2013

Thanks to my VTech Connect to Cell™ phone- 2 Handset Connect to Cell™ Answering System with Cordless Headset I don't have to worry about dead spots anymore. I can connect not one, but two cell phones and a landline, download contacts for both phones, and store up to 2000 records from two different cell phones. Then you are ready to make and receive calls on all three lines.

The VTech Connect to Cell phone allows me to fold laundry, do dishes, play with the kids, or anything else that requires the use of both hands, thanks to the hands-free headset. I spend some of the day using the hands-free headset, sound was crisp and clear, easy to use, comfortable, and works perfectly.

Another fun perk is the Ringtone Share feature. This allows you to set your cordless phone to play your iPhone (iOS4.1 or later) ringtone. We connect my cell phone and my husband's cell phone, and assigned them each a unique ringtone. Which makes it easy to tell if the phone call is for me, or Shawn.

VTech's IS7100 Cordless Phone is a Video Camera Doorbell Too

July 02, 2013

Basically, this is way, way better than trying to deftly peek out the window without being spotted when you're trying to avoid a lengthy conversation about someone's faith or how amazing these knives are (they can cut through metal!). Now, you can know when to bunker down and pretend no one's home without going farther than the phone.

Quality Home Telephone And Answering Machine

June 30, 2013

One of the features I appreciate the most is the speaker phone feature. I am always on the phone and like to do other things while I am talking. With many phones, the speaker is not all that clear and it makes it difficult to use. With the VTech phone, you can hear clearly and the other party can hear you just as well. With the intercom between the handsets, the kids can talk to each other from different rooms (yes, really!). If you are looking for a home telephone and answering machine that is top quality that will fit into virtually any budget, VTech phones is a great choice.

VTech Audio/Video Doorbell makes answering the door easy!

June 30, 2013

The VTech IS7121-2 Series will send a digital picture of who is at the door, so you never have to look to see before you answer. It is especially great for those unwanted solicitors who you had to answer the door before to, as you did not know who it was. It features streaming and still images right from the camera to your Vtech phone. The camera automatically snaps a photo and sends it to the handsets when visitors ring the doorbell. You are able to stream the video, audio, or both with two simply buttons.

It also features a log of video/photos on who came to your doorbell when you were gone. This is especially useful when you go on vacation and want to see who visited your house when you were gone. It is just like caller ID for your front porch! The level of security you will feel by purchasing the Vtech Audio/Video Doorbell is second to none! You can feel confident on answering the doorbell or not answering it, based on what you pick up from the camera, that submits the images to your phone.

Old School Telephone VTech Retro Phone

For the person who has {almost} EVERYTHING! The VTech Retro phone is one of those nostalgic classic pieces that will take you way back. This classy update to the old school telephone is more than a conversation piece.

The VTech classic Retro Phone is reminiscent of that old school telephone with the long curly cord.  The updated Retro phone is a cordless handset with digital keyboard, speakerphone, caller id and voice mail features.  Perfect for the office or a personal phone.

Never Rush Around The House Searching For The Phone Again

June 22, 2013

My favorite feature of Vtech CS6859 cordless telephone is that it solves my ultimate problem. The base (which I can’t wander off with) also serves are a corded phone with a full dial pad, speaker and all the features found on the handset – tethered to the wall. No more missed calls because I can’t find a handset! I can even make calls from the base.

The Sleek Retro Telephone from VTech

June 21, 2013

The VTech LS6195 model has many features to it - but some of my favorites are that it's push-button keypad that looks like a rotary phone. That it's cordless, and for a multi-tasking mom I can hold it between my face & shoulder without pressing buttons. The fact that I can retrieve my messages on both the handset & base, the power-conserving technology, because to be honest - I forget to hang a handset up for days. I love the overall look.. the handset rests facing down really giving it that old retro look & it’s sleek contemporary style which takes up virtually no space at all.

Answer the Door Without Opening the Door

June 21, 2013

Several companies sell front door video intercom systems. Some require a dedicated cable from the front door camera/doorbell to a base station. The base station includes a video screen and handset or handsfree speakerphone. Others styles operate wirelessly between the camera and base station. I'm not a big fan of these systems because you can only answer the door and see the video from the base station. So you have to run to the base station every time someone rings your doorbell.

Thankfully there's a better option—a cordless phone system with wireless door video. The system, made by cordless phone manufacturer VTECH, includes a wireless video camera/doorbell unit and two cordless phones. When a visitor presses the doorbell, the cordless phones emit a chime tone to differentiate the door call from a phone call. The phone then displays a color snapshot of the visitor. You can talk to the visitor and view live video at the same time. If you're not home, the camera stores a still photo of the visitor so you can see who came to your door while you were away.

The VTech CS6529-16 is a cordless answering system phone with Caller ID/Call Waiting. I know everyone is into cell phone these days, but I actually love still using a regular phone in my home. I like to have a phone next to my bed, so I can easily pick it up to talk. I also love being able to keep regular messages stored for me on the phone. There is nothing like having a good ole’ home phone in your house and the Vtech CS6529-16 is great phone that has all the bells and whistles, all while being sold at a very reasonable price ($29.99) at Target. Here is to not having to worry about dropped calls or being uncomfortable holding a cell phone for long periods of time!

Screen Your Front Porch Visitors From The Convenience and Safety of Your locked Doors With the VTech Audio/Video Doorbell Phone System

June 16, 2013

When my husband isn't home and it's just me and the boys' I absolutely won't answer the door if I don't know who it is. Unfortunately, it's just not safe to do so anymore, but now with VTech's Audio/Video Doorbell that problem is solved.

Now when someone rings our doorbell we can instantly see who it is by simply looking at one of our cordless phone handsets. I LOVE that I don't even have to go to the door and let the visitor see me while trying to see who is here.


Home Phone Makeover with #VTechHubofHome

June 14, 2013

The VTech CS6859 Cordless Answering System truly has all we, as multitasking moms need. Its sleek design is appealing in the home, not an eyesore, and it is loaded with options that make life easier.

I love this phone! You have no idea how many times I had tried to take a nap when I was pregnant with the surro-baby last year, only to be woken up by the phone ringing because we had no way to shut it off. The quiet mode on this phone is great, and I used it just yesterday for an hour so that I could catch a quick catnap before getting the boys from school. You just press a button, put in how many hours you want the quiet time to last and you will never be bothered!

VTech Audio/Video Doorbell Cordless System Review

June 13, 2013

This Father's Day, give dad the gift of technology with this VTech audio/video doorbell cordless phone system! He will be amazed at how far we have evolved when it comes to our phone systems. You no longer have to spend an arm and a leg for security in your own home. This allows you to see who is at the door without even having to move from your couch. Long gone are the days of having peep holes on your door and nearly breaking your neck trying to see outside. This is truly a gift Dad and other family members will appreciate all year round, not just on Father's Day.

When we found out we would be able to review this phone system from VTech, I immediately knew it would be perfect for us. We live in a very wooded area so when visitors knock, I don't always feel safe, especially at night. I never really know who has popped up especially with the dog barking over the person at the door. Having this video cordless phone, I feel a lot more at ease being able to see whose there just by looking at my phone.

Loving a Home Phone

June 12, 2013

VTech brings innovative and affordable technology to consumers with this break-through product at a great price point — the "hub of the home" phone, featuring a dial-in base and multi-handset bundles.

One of my favorite features is that the base of Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting (model: CS6859) has a speakerphone which eliminates the hassle of trying to find the handset when the phone rings. I'm free to multitask with both hands while holding a conversation through the base speaker, which acts as a second phone unit.

Since I'm a mom always on the go I appreciate the digital answering system that records up to 14 minutes of calls I might miss. The screen on both the handset and the base unit displays up to 50 calls. Handset displays the name, number, time and date of incoming calls.

VTech: video doorbell cordless phone system Review

June 12, 2013

This is the best invention ever, VTech just made everyone's day with these phones. This video doorbell cordless phone system is awesome. Comes with everything you need to ignore those solicitors. I don't know about you, but I hate when people ring my doorbell or knock on my door. For me it requires, open and close baby gate, walk down stairs and up stairs. What a hassle for something you know you wont want, need, or care about. Also when your in your PJ's or just enjoying your morning or evening, you wont want to get up for something useless..I had my fair share of solicitors ignore me, and try their hardest to keep chatting, and then want into your house, to foam clean your carpets. These people would NOT leave and they just kept coming and coming, it was a quite annoying adventure.

Now with this handy phone. Comes with everything you need to make this process easy. Just place batteries into doorbell box, then hook it up to your doorbell. Hook up the phones, and when people come to your door to ring your doorbell, it will go right to your phone, picture, person, and you can chat right to them from your phone. They offer 2 phones with this box, so if your in your bedroom, or kitchen you will be able to answer this from any remote location. Also another great feature, gone at work? These people ring your doorbell, it will store up to 100 pictures per phone now that is neat I must say. I also love this camera feature, it will record any picture of anyone who pushes that button.

Celebrate the 4th of July with VTech

June 11, 2013

Believe it or not, not every one texts. Some people prefer to actually speak to someone on the phone. I know plenty of people who prefer to do things the “old fashion way” (calling vs. texting). Not everyone uses cellphones either. There are plenty of people who like to have a landline available to them. Cellphones are not always reliable. Not everyone likes to have long conversations on cellphones either. I prefer a regular phone over a cellphone for long conversations. I find regular phones more comfortable.

The VTech CS6529 gives consumers more “bang for their buck”. This budget friendly phone packs a lot of great features in a sleek décor-friendly design. Check out all the features this phone offers.

2013: Father's Day Gift Guide

June 11, 2013

Take the Guesswork Out of Guests at the Door. The VTech IS7121-2 video doorbell phone system delivers a cost-effective option to homeowners concerned or curious about front door visitors. The two-in-one cordless system and video monitor combines a versatile landline phone, multiple handsets and an easy-to-install digital camera on the doorbell. When an individual rings the doorbell, a photo is instantly and discreetly taken and sent to each phone handset. A homeowner can then choose to enable the microphone to speak to the front door visitor or just stream video for further observation before answering the front door. Priced competitively against other video doorbell solutions, the system includes two handsets that each have a 1.8 inch color LCD screen and DECT 6.0 technology.

VTech Audio/ Video Doorbell Phone

June 07, 2013

VTech new Audio/Video Doorbell 2 Handset Cordless Answering System allows you to see who is at your front door. You can choose to view them in real time from the small screen on your 2 handsets, speak to them and they can speak back. Once they ring the door bell and you choose to view them to see who it is, they will have no idea you are viewing them. You choose who to hear and see. The doorbell will instantly snap a photo and send it to the handset, but you get to decide whether to enable microphone. You can even choose to stream video. This is such a wonderful feature to have. They can also answer back or speak to tell you who they are once you hit the speak button from the handset inside.

VTech Cordless Phone with Audio Video Doorbell – See Who Is at Your Door on Your Phone

June 05, 2013

The VTech Audio Video Doorbell Phone System is a great gift for Dad which provides a better way to approach visitors, using an instant photo sent to the phone handset and optional streaming video. Dad can easily talk to visitors or simply observe them from inside the home.

Happy Father's Day from VTech Audio/Video Doorbell!

June 03, 2013

This VTech SI7121-2 Video Doorbell is amazing and here's why. This new system allows you to see who is at your door without ever having to skip a beat in what your doing. You don't even have to move from your seat.

Just say your seating on your couch or maybe your in the kitchen cooking and someone is ringing your door bell. Well this cool VTech IS7121-2 digital camera/phone can and will send you a digital picture to your handset as to whom is at the door. That's right a digital picture will show up right on your handset.


Retro Telephones

May 27, 2013

The phone I am considering for my kitchen - the VTech's Retro Phone. Switching to one of the real retro phones featured above would be going a bit too far, I think, as it might look out of place in my kitchen. Not to say the inconvenience of using the telephony technologies from the past era. But something like VTech's retro phone seems to have a perfect marriage of vintage look and modern technologies.

June 05, 2012

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard my cell phone ringing, rushed around the house trying to locate it, only to have it stop before I could dig it out of the bottom of my purse. It seems to be a constant event when I’m at home. When I’m out and about, at least my purse is usually attached to me in some way and I can find it before it stops, but at home, I could be anywhere in the house when it starts ringing. The VTech Connect to Cell Answering System with Caller ID and Call Waiting is a fantastic solution to the problem.

I was perfectly happy with my current VTech phone and probably would have kept it for many years, but then I saw the VTech LS6475-3 Phone System I knew it was just what my family needed.

The VTech Retro Phone is a Fresh Take on the Pyramid Phone

May 31, 2012

Want a phone with a retro rotary layout, but without the novelty of a truly retro appearance or actual rotary functionality? Your long, arduous search is finally at an end. The VTech Retro Phone is a sleek cordless landline phone with a completely modern appearance outside of the rotary-style dial layout of the numbers. It’s not actually a rotary phone – those are all push-buttons – so VTech is relying on the rotary look alone for retro cred. The small display on the base shows caller information, and serves as a charging station for the handset. Speakers for speakerphone functionality are located on both the base and the handset.

The LS6195 by VTech is energy star certified—it doesn’t use a lot of power, neither does it take up a lot of room.

Nothing like good old retro to take you back, huh? I love finding things that take me back in the day, and the new VTech Retro Phone, certainly does just that!

VTech LS6475-3 review

May 19, 2012

A hands free telephone is one item Dad cannot afford to be without, speciously if he has an office at home like my husband does. If you’ve ever tried to work on the computer while talking on the phone, you know how frustrating it can be. Fortunately, there are many hands free phones to choose from, so what one do you choose. How about the VTech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system?

Product Review - VTech ( @VTech411 ) Two Handset Cordless Answering System

May 16, 2012

I hate the telephone. I hate how its ring stops whatever’s going on in our home and demands our attention; however, I realize I’m in the minority and once you get me on the phone, I love to chat. My issue with phones is how inconvenient they are. They limit my movement just by their design and I resent that. Thankfully I recently received a set of phones that just may make me rethink my love/hate relationship with my home phone.

The old becomes new: VTech "rotary dial" phone

April 25, 2012

Remember when phones looked like this? Alfie and I were just talking the other day about how we have to stop saying "Dial a number", because we're totally dating ourselves! It's incredible to think that our kids have NO idea what rotary phones are (actually, they have no idea what a "corded" phone is since all the phones they've seen are cordless!). So when VTech phones told me about their retro (sort of) cordless phone, I had to feature it here. Okay, the design is kind of space age, and you punch in rather than dial the numbers, but it still brings back memories of busy signals and party lines.

Holiday Gift Guide: VTech DS6421-3 Connect to Cell Phone (Review)

December 20, 2011

I am a VTech fan and have considered their phones on a number of occasions but the challenge is that we do not have a landline! We’re one of those families that only uses our cell phones so I never had a reason to really consider any of the VTech handsets.

Phone Home

December 05, 2011

My phone died. More accurately, all three of our cordless phones died. We were down to one that was working, which was always lost somewhere in the house, that I could hear ringing but could never find in time to answer, so I would always make a made dash to the base and talk to whomever was calling on speaker hunched over with my face within inches of the base so they could hear me.

Answer Your Cell Phone on Your Home Phone with VTech - Review

November 30, 2011

Have you ever had your cell phone ring, only you didn’t know where it is? The tiny electronic device could be anywhere in the house and you start running from room to room, standing to hear a ring, then scrambling, throwing pillows or clothes, as the phone continues to ring it’s ominous countdown before the “beep, beep, beep” that signals a missed call. Yes – it has happened to me once, or twice, or more. Ever since I installed the VTechn DS6421-3 Connect-to-Cell phone system, my days of searching for my cell phone have ended.

My Shiny New Phone System

November 09, 2011

Everyone seems to be giving up their land lines, but I just don’t seem to be able to do that. I’m on the phone far too often for too long (sometimes over three hours a day!) to gobble up all my minutes allowed on my cell phone plan. I switched my land line to my internet/TV provider to save some money, but my phones were really old and really beat up. Also, the new phone company charges extra for voice mail, so my sorry excuse of a home phone would just ring and ring and ring. That’s a little bit of a problem when my children are enrolled in virtual classes and their teachers call sporadically to check in with them. I would wind up scrolling through the caller ID multiple times a day to see who I’d missed. Yeah. Not really the most advanced set up and for someone who prides themselves on the advanced technology in her life, it was a little embarrassing. So, when I received this opportunity to review the VTech LS6475-3 Multitasking phone system, I was so excited!

Hands-Free with my VTech Phone - Multitasking At its Best!

September 13, 2011

I’m like any other Mom in the house – busy and multitasking several different things at once. So having a hands free phone is a huge help. I had tried a few head sets in the past and never found anything that had a decent quality that was good enough to hold an extended conversation on.

Do you LOVE your land line?

June 28, 2011

The VTech LS6475-3 Phone System Brings Technologically Advanced Communications to Your Home

June 09, 2011

In making calls, we tested both handset call and head set calls. From the perspective of a caller, there was full clarity with both devices. With the DECT 6 technology, it was so clear and crisp that it was like being face to face. When the person on the other side was asked about the sound quality and transmission clarity, the response was the same. They truly thought I was on a corded phone....
