Cordless home phones, also known as DECT phones today, are
telephone sets designed for home use that operate without a
physical connection to the telephone line. Instead, they use
radio signals to communicate with a base unit that's connected
to the telephone line.
When making or receiving a call, your cordless phone
communicates with the base station, which then connects the call
to the telephone network.
This technology allows you to carry your phone around your home,
giving you freedom from the confines of a cord. It's also worth
noting that modern cordless home phone options often come with a
plethora of additional features, including caller ID, call
blocking, answering machines, and Bluetooth connectivity.
