BT Elements 1 km range IP67 Rated Cordless Phone : Superb quality, range and very robust

Rugged robust phone with a good range. Perfect for the shed at the bottom of the garden. . I needed a phone for when i am working in my shed at the bottom of the garden and when i am in the garage. I had a little difficulty setting up the phone so i removed the battery and put it back in again to see if that helped and it did. The phone has a rugged robust look and feel to it. It is functional and perfect for the shed or workplace. It is easy to use and the it has a good range and the sound is clear. There are plenty of other features that i will probably not sue but all in all i think this is a solidly good phone. Recommended for use in the workshop or shed at the bottom of the garden.

Very impressed by the range on this phone. I haven’t tried this to see if it does the full range yet, but it works great in & around our offices & sheds at work. Despite two walls & a house being in the way, it still worked perfect ( about 80 ft from base). It works well up to 150 ft away with two walls inbetween. It is quiet long, especially with the long distance antenna, but it’s narrower than most smartphones, so it’s easy to hold. It has big clear buttons & the menu works like a standard mobile phone, easy to add contacts etc. It seems sturdy & has a clip on the back to clip onto a belt etc. Much better range than other standard cordless phones & very reasonable priced. I would definately recommend this product.

This is a well made handset and base station which works great, i live in a large victorian house made of welsh granite and the walls are incredibly thick, not much works the distance around the house, this phone however worked great, three floors up and it was great, most impressed. The phone’s nuisance call blocker is a useful tool, however i signed up for the call blocker online so don’t tend to get any. The handset is very rugged, nice to hold. My only grumble is you can get a mobile phone which has a touch screen, slim, internet, emails, all sorts of features, and fairly cheap, yet every house phone is big, bulky and lacking in modern features, yes it has answer phone and you can store numbers, but that is something my phone of 20 years could do, i do think its about time the home phones started to look more up to date with some of the best features offered on mobiles. That’s a generic moan rather than just on this handset. Phone is still a five star product. Here are the specifications for the BT Elements 1 km range IP67 Rated Cordless Phone:

We live in big old house with super thick walls. Taking our normal phone device from the lounge to the kitchen is not an option, in fact it fails very quickly. We had though we were stuck with a plug in phone for ever and a day until this little beauty fell on the door step. I have used this phone in every conceivable room in the house, for my review of course. It has not lost signal, it has not cracked, the person on the other end wasn’t muffled or cut off in their prime. It is to say the least a joy. The ringer volume is amazing set to super loud so u can hear in every room in the house and i say this in all honesty, you cannot hear the doorbell at the other side of the house unless the doors are open. This ringer i can hear from my bedroom at the other end of my home with every door shut and the phone is sited at the far end my bedroom at the other, the doorbell in the middle so you can see why i say it’s super loud. Now this phone boasts a call block facility, it has an answering service it offers a promise of being water proof.

Fantastic phones that work well in houses with thick stone walls. . We live in a very old stone cottage with 2 ft thick walls both internal and external. Dragging the cottage into the 21st century with wifi and wireless phones has been a challenge. For our wireless house phones we had previously bought a long range panasonic dect phone 4 years ago but soon realised that this wasn’t upto the job and we had to keep 2 rooms away from the base station at the most before they cut out. But as we had spent the money we kept the old panasonics until the handsets started to flake out. Well that happened at the end of last year and i was happy to look into the alternatives. There wasn’t that many which stood out but this bt elements 1km phone did. They are larger than normal handsets to house the extra electronics to boost the signal but after a couple of days we didn’t notice the difference in size. What we did notice is that the performance was brilliant.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great product. I bought them to replace some Siemens
  • NOW ICAN MAKE CALLS ANYWHERE IN THE BUILDING
  • Clunky phone, battery lasts a long time

As this is a fantastic phone, such long range. Had to give this 5 star, as this is a fantastic phone, such long range, waterproof with loads of features built in. I must confess there are 2 drawbacks:-as with previous reviewers the phones did struggle to work out of the box. However all they need is a hard re-boot, i. Remove the battery then replace it. It’s a real shame that this is not made clear on the instructions or when you phone the bt help number, as after they are charged up and running there is nothing on the market to compete with them for the money. Its a shame the torch function has been removed as i found this very useful. Please note if your considering this against a repeater solution, the repeater will only boost your signal in one direction, ok if your trying to support a shed at the end of the garden, but if you’re looking for extended range in all directions this is your answer.

    1. Clunky phone, battery lasts a long time. Quite clunky to carry around. Battery lasts for quite a while. The range isn’t all that good. The advertising blurb always ignores the fact houses have silver covered insulation in the walls.

    I bought them to replace some siemens. I bought them to replace some siemens phones that were supposed to be long range, my office is in the garden about 100yards from the house and the siemens phones were right on the edge of their range even with a range extender. These beauties worked straight out of the box without a range extender and have at least twice the range of the old phones. I put the longer aerials on the handsets that came in the box. The handsets are not like the current hi tech flush screen phones but old school, proper buttons and tough. Sound quality is also great.

    Goes through the wall that other’s failed to penetrate. Buttons need a good solid press which in my case, lessens the need for the key lock. Speaker phone could be louder especially for the hard of hearing.

      1. Work brilliantly for the distance we needed (which is quite a long way between multiple walls).

    I would have expected better from this phone. The ringing keeps stopping,so when you are outside you cannot hear a thing and you miss the call. I would have expected better from this phone.

    Just an okay:( the range is not impressive even with line of sight. Very large and bulky by todays standards. Menu system feels old and slow. All personal opinions of course. Used to connect a garden studio to the outside world – not line of sight but just 30 metres away from the base station. Works as long as i hang the base station halfway up the nearest window frame. So i’m going to relocate the master socket in the attic and see if a bit of elevation will solve the issue.

    1. Previous phones didn’t have the range/capability to reach 20m through. Previous phones didn’t have the range/capability to reach 20m through a few walls whereas these have no problem at all. Not the most attractive design but they are robust and save having to install extra wiring.
