Upgrade Your Home Office with Ooma’s New DP1 Desk Phone

By |Tuesday August 7, 2018

Working at home just got easier thanks to Ooma’s newly released DP1 Desk Phone.

We all know that home offices aren’t typically outfitted with the same infrastructure that you have at work, and the classic home office faux pas is when your children come home while you’re on a business call. We saw it happen in the viral clip where a BBC reporter’s children walked in during his on-air interview. However, if you were taking a work call at home while using Ooma’s DP1 Desk Phone, you could physically pick up the phone set and walk to another room, finishing your call while using the phone’s backup battery. Disaster averted thanks to the phone’s wireless technology!

In addition to its wireless connectivity, the DP1 gives you access to tools that would otherwise be unavailable to customers using analog phones.
For example, the DP1 has full two-line controls so you can make the most of Ooma’s advanced calling features, such as Instant Second Line™. Not only will your work calls get through even if a family member is using the phone, but your business calls made from home will sound professional, helping you make a good first impression.

Going Wireless With the Ooma DP1 Desk Phone

There are many reasons why VoIP adds value to your communications, including combining the best of cell phones and landlines.

Now, you can maximize your Ooma residential VoIP home phone service by going completely free from Ethernet lines or telephone cables. In fact, one of the most exciting features of the Ooma DP1 Desk Phone is that it connects wirelessly to your Ooma Telo. You aren’t limited by your home office setup, and you can place the DP1 in locations where you may not be able to easily access a phone jack or Ethernet cable. All you need is an electrical outlet to have full telephone access.

While you may have previously used an Ooma Linx to wirelessly connect your phone to the Ooma Telo, the DP1 has internal wireless capabilities without the need for an extra device.

Using DECT 6.0 to transmit, the range of the DP1 phone is up to 150 ft. from the Ooma Telo. To put that in context, you can place the phone about 19 parking spaces away from your Telo.

“The DP1 provides all the features of a high-end desk phone, yet can go anywhere there’s an electrical outlet, without having to worry about adding a phone jack or running phone wire across the room,” said Dennis Peng, VP of Product Management at Ooma. “There’s no longer any need to choose between flexibility and functionality in phones – now you can have both.”

Key Home Phone Features of the DP1 Wireless Desk Phone

Not only does the Ooma DP1 Wireless Desk Phone offer wireless connectivity, but it also adds value to your phone system so your communications platform will be efficient and effective.
