Very reliable: The Gigaset A690A IP BASE impresses with its system

There is a system behind the Gigaset A690A IP BASE. More precisely, a telephone system for your home, for home offices and small offices. It is "Made in Germany" and its CAT-iq base station can manage up to six IP-based phone numbers from different providers. At the same time, four calls can be made and two answering machine recordings can be made. You make calls digitally (VoIP) and in the best HD sound quality. The web user interface, which has won the iF Design Award, is also outstanding. In addition to 500 phone book entries, you can also save 1,000 additional contacts thanks to Google and Microsoft 365 account integration. And to have a phone to hand wherever you are: Up to 6 DECT handsets can be registered, simply place them anywhere in your living or working area.

Very convenient: Making calls is easier with the Gigaset A690A IP BASE

If you have your hands full, you need a phone that sits comfortably in your hand. Just like the A690A IP BASE: This cordless phone from Gigaset looks good and impresses with its ergonomic keypad, illuminated buttons and intuitive handling. The large and illuminated black and white display with its strong contrasts is also very convenient: This means that everything can be read from the display even in the dark or in difficult lighting conditions. And although the Gigaset A690A IP BASE meets the highest ergonomic standards, you can also hand it over at any time thanks to the integrated hands-free function. This phone is fully customised to your needs and is the perfect everyday companion.

Very convenient: calls in hands-free mode

Let's be frank: Many people want to be free, but in everyday life you spend a lot of time on the phone. The Gigaset A690A IP BASE gives you a bit of freedom back: you can use it to make calls via the handset or in hands-free mode. Both have their advantages, depending on the call situation. Many people appreciate hands-free telephoning because it allows them to do other things or take notes comfortably. Another practical feature is that other people can also listen in and talk. And because the A690A IP BASE has two hands-free profiles, you can adjust the emphasis of higher or lower frequencies to suit your preference. The voice quality is perfect in both cases.

Very intuitive: The web configurator of the Gigaset A690A IP BASE

Making calls with the Gigaset A690A IP BASE is a marvellous experience. Configuration and commissioning are quick - and very convenient via PC, smartphone or tablet. You can use the new Gigaset web configurator, which has an intuitive user interface. Even users with no prior technical knowledge will find it easy to use. The "Gigaset Onboarding Assistant" helps you with the initial setup, guides you through language and country selection and assists you in setting up the DECT and VoIP connections. Call diversions and DECT repeaters are also installed with ease. User-friendliness starts with the installation of your Gigaset A690A IP BASE.

Very attractive: The web interface, which has won the iF Design Award

When it comes to aesthetics, people's opinions often differ. When it comes to functionality, they come together again: After all, it's not just about beautiful surfaces, but also about usability. This is the case with the web interface of the Gigaset IP BASE, which is well designed and practical. It has been honoured with the iF Design Award, one of the most prestigious design prizes in the world. The International Forum Design in Germany recognises the pioneering design of the completely redesigned web user interface. This is completely customised to your needs, with more intuitive and fresher features to make it easier for you to start up and interact with contacts and calls. Nice, isn't it?

Very organised: Three answering machines for business and private calls

Three is not too many: The Gigaset A690A IP BASE has not just one, but three digital answering machines, each with a recording time of 30 minutes. But what are the advantages of multiple answering machines? The clear allocation of private and business calls makes many things easier, no more lost messages. Another very convenient feature is that you can also assign your colleagues, employees or family members their own telephone numbers and answering machines. Operation is simple via the web interface or via the Gigaset HX handset (CAT-iq 2.1.). So everything is organised when it comes to contact management - even if you are not there or don't have time to make a call.

Highly customised: Everything under control thanks to the time-controlled answering machine

Sometimes it rings early, sometimes late, sometimes at the same time: With the Gigaset A690A IP BASE's three answering machines, you are guaranteed not to miss any more calls - and yet you are not dependent on the telephone. So organise your days just the way you want - the Gigaset base station's excellent web configurator takes care of the rest. It controls the answering machines individually, according to your wishes. If someone wants to reach you after business hours or at the weekend, for example, the calls can be automatically diverted to the answering machine. The length of the recorded messages can also be easily configured, as can customised message announcements. Just the way you like it.

Very flexible: The phone book of the Gigaset A690A IP BASE

Contacts are good, maintaining contacts is better. In addition to the local directories of the connected Gigaset HX handsets, the Gigaset A690A IP BASE has a central phonebook for up to 500 entries. An impressive capacity that can be increased even further thanks to the seamless integration of Google and Microsoft 365 accounts: You can use them to store 1,000 additional contacts each, and these are read from the respective platform every 15 minutes. And when it comes to maintaining contacts? Thanks to our excellent web configurator, calls can be started by simply clicking on the phone number and made on the handset. So you remain flexible.

Very secure: the Gigaset A690A IP BASE's call protection protects against harassment

Who is speaking? Some calls are expected, others come as a surprise. And still others you would prefer not to answer at all. But you don't have to: With Gigaset call protection, unwanted calls can be blocked automatically. This effectively protects your privacy, annoying advertising or scam calls are simply no longer put through. With the Gigaset A690A IP BASE, you can add up to 1,000 phone numbers to the blacklist. And if someone calls you anonymously? With Gigaset call blocking, you can also block calls without a transmitted phone number. This means you can make calls without any worries and avoid unwelcome or annoying calls.

Highly compatible: One phone system for all situations

The Gigaset A690A IP BASE is the perfect phone system for your home, home office or small office. And to ensure you always have a phone to hand, you can connect up to six Gigaset HX handsets to it. Distribute them in several rooms wherever you want to have a telephone to hand - in the kitchen, living room, dining room or office. So you can make calls anywhere, even internally or in parallel in up to four calls. The Gigaset IP BASE is connected to the router via LAN, so it can be set up in a place with the best wireless coverage. If you still need more range, you can integrate a Gigaset DECT repeater into the system at any time.
