Videophone Contacts, preferences and options
The optional Konnekt call button is especially useful during set-up, for testing video calls with Konnekt. The optional Clean button allows you to wipe the screen without inadvertently pressing a call button and making a call.
The number and size of Call buttons (also known as Speed Dial buttons) is adjustable to suit your needs and eyesight capabilities.
If your eyesight is failing, you have an unsteady hand, or you just want to be able to use your Videophone without wearing glasses, ask for larger buttons with larger text size. Use short names for your Call Buttons, start with fewer buttons, and arrange them in just 2-5 rows.
Some users have Call buttons just for immediate family. Some have a button for each friend and colleague, virtually replacing the need to call from their regular telephone. Others like to have buttons for services, such as medical, cleaner, gardener, taxi, and even pizza delivery.
Buttons can be arranged in groups (family; friends; services; overseas) or alphabetically. Blanks or empty rows can help.
Videophone can automatically answer an incoming call if the user does not or cannot answer.
Videophone can be mounted on a table/desk using its kickstand. Use our supplied adhesive clamp to secure the kickstand onto a table. Videophone can also mount onto a wall using almost any monitor bracket -- ask Konnekt for instructions.
A power outlet cover (Australian version shown) helps prevent Videophone from being inadvertently or deliberately unplugged by a cleaner or by the user. A DC extension cable (2m or 5m length) can be more convenient than a power extension cord to help hide cabling. Cable ties attach and tidy cables, and help prevent falls.
The Konnekt Videophone’s default colour scheme ensures that your buttons and text are bright, easy to read and pleasing to the eye. The default colour scheme’s palette includes the Konnekt blue, carefully chosen because studies show that blue promotes happiness, confidence, calmness and creativity. For a dark room, we suggest to use our “Dark” colour scheme. We also have “Green” and “Blue” colour schemes, to help you match the décor in your room or your favourite colour. There’s also high-contrast “Yellow”, which we recommend for those with poor vision.
The Videophone screensaver allows the screen to go completely dark after a period of inactivity. The screen wakes upon touch or incoming call.
