What Does DECT Mean?

DECT is an acronym that stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications.  This means that whichever device this acronym is attached to uses a digital encryption code, rather than analogue radio signals to communicate between the cordless phone and the base unit, providing greater clarity and security than the older, analogue-based cordless phones.  All new cordless phones use DECT to communicate between base and handset.
