Missing phone calls is all too common for people with hearing loss, especially if the TV or radio are on. This can feel isolating and frustrating, but there’s a simple solution to help you stay in touch more easily.
A telephone alerter is ideal if your home phone isn’t loud enough but you like everything else about it. This handy gadget replaces your handset’s existing ring with an extra-loud telephone ringer, so you’ll always know when friends and family are calling. Plus, you can adjust the volume of the phone ringer amplifier and choose from different ringtones to suit your hearing needs.
For extra peace of mind, most telephone alerters have a bright, flashing strobe light as well as a telephone ringer amplifier. And some models, like the Geemarc Amplicall 10, can also be used with a vibrating pad (available separately) to shake you awake if the phone rings when you’re asleep. It’s easy to install and use a telephone alerter – the external phone ringer plugs directly into your existing phone handset.
Some products in our telephone alerters range offer extra benefits. The Doro RingPlus can alert you to the doorbell or intercom, as well as your phone. You’ll always know when a visitor arrives thanks to the flashing strobe light and extra-loud ringer.
Our telephone alerters are suitable for those with up to profound deafness. They’re also useful for people with standard hearing in noisy environments and in situations where total silence is needed – the external telephone ringer can be switched off and the flashing strobe light used to see when there’s an incoming call.
