Ooma Beefs Up Smart Home Phone Portfolio

Ooma has added features and products to its smart home phone portfolio.

The Ooma Telo Air with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on-board connects to the Internet wirelessly using the home’s Wi-Fi network, and can be paired with mobile phones to answer incoming mobile calls from any phone in the home. It also has app-based setup for Android or iOS mobile devices. Users can scan a QR code on the Ooma Telo Air to select a new phone number, setup the account and configure the Wi-Fi settings.

Also new is the cordless Ooma HD3 handset. It is ergonomically designed for added comfort and can conveniently be used as a speakerphone while charging in the cradle. It also offers the ability to sync the phone book with online contacts from Apple, Google, Yahoo and others, and display picture caller ID by syncing with Facebook or LinkedIn profile pictures. One-touch voicemail access lets users check messages anywhere in the home and the intercom button allows them to talk between handsets or transfer calls.

Ooma continues to innovate by adding the Telo Air and HD3 Handset to our revolutionary smart home phone service, freeing our customers from wires and expensive home phone bills,” said Dennis Peng, vice president of products at Ooma. “The ability to place Ooma Telo anywhere in the home with wireless Internet along with the ability to answer mobile calls on phones throughout the house is the ultimate in convenience.”

The Ooma Telo home phone service provides HD call quality, 911 capability and customizable call blocking to effectively wipe out telemarketers and robocalls. Customers who have an existing landline phone can keep their phone number when switching to Ooma, and each OomaTelo can be used with up to four handsets.

Ooma Telo Air retails for $119.99 MSRP and will be available later in December. Ooma’s HD3 handset retails for $49.99 MSRP and will be available in January.
