Munich, April 29, 2013 – With the new C620, Gigaset has created a showpiece that meets the family's highest demands. Extensively equipped with shortcut keys for a baby monitor, call protection and do not disturb function, exceptionally long talk and standby times and a large TFT color display, the C620 is the perfect family phone.
The new Gigaset C620 is sure to give the family something to talk about! On the one hand, because no one will want to put it down, and on the other, because the C620 proves that a sturdy and multifunctional family telephone can indeed be a design piece.
The new Gigaset C620 takes on the role of the clever family phone and offers a variety of product features specifically tailored to the needs of families. They include the baby monitor, a generous address book and exceptionally long talk and standby times. All of this is packaged in an especially elegant and high-quality design that already won the iF product design award 2013.
Made to support parents
For parents, the safety of their children has top priority. The Gigaset C620 helps them achieve this with practical safety and convenience features. With its integrated baby monitor, parents are in constant contact with the children’s room, whether through two handsets from room to room, or even if they briefly leave the house. When the noise reaches a certain level, the phone automatically dials a pre-defined handset or external number. The intercom function lets the child hear their parents' voices right away. When the direct call (or baby call) function is activated, all keys will dial a pre-defined number when pressed. Whichever key the child presses, the same stored number will always be dialed.
Three shortcut keys for greater convenience
In order to leave more time for what's important, namely the family, operating the new Gigaset C620 has been made even easier and more intuitive. The three most important shortcut keys, for the do not disturb function, call lists and baby monitor, can activate the respective functions with just one press of the key:
- Do not disturb (access to three functions): The function "Reject anonymous calls" blocks or mutes calls without a CLIP number. The "day/night" mode deactivates the ringer on a time-controlled basis. Exceptions are made for up to 15 pre-programmed numbers so that important calls come though at any time. With the "Blocked call list", unwanted calls are rejected or only visually displayed.
- Call lists: The illuminated message key indicates new messages and offers direct access to all call lists, including outgoing, accepted, missed and all calls.
- Baby monitor: This key activates the baby monitor with the corresponding intercom function.
Answering machine and enhancements
The new family phone is also available as version C620A with an integrated answering machine with a recording capacity of 55 minutes. Incoming messages are indicated as well on the handset as by a blinking icon on the base station. The base station is also providing detailed information on the activity status of the answering machine, the recording of new messages and their count as well when the internal memory is maxed out. The answering machine can be operated by either the handset or the base station. As a system expansion, Gigaset offers the handset C620H, with a full range of functions that can be operated at base stations C620 and C620A. All of the C620 versions provide a talk and standby time of up to 26 and 530 hours, respectively.
The C620 model provides DECT features typical for Gigaset: the ECO Mode and ECO Mode Plus. Simply activating the ECO mode reduces the transmitting power of the base station by 80%. With the ECO Mode Plus, the phone is completely radiation free when in standby mode.
