I don’t know about you, but sometime I sit and think about all of the electronic devices that I own, and then I wonder how much more they can actually do other than what I use them for.
I know that there are a lot of people out there like me. People that use their devices for their basic features and never really bother maximizing their potential. And then there are people who learn the technology inside and out, utilizing every single feature that is offered.
When I use the term “electronic device”, of course I mean your tablet, your cell phone, your laptop, and even (spoiler alert) your VoIP deskphone! Based on experience, I know that there are a lot of features that your deskphone can do that will probably never get used. Even at the entry level, a lot of VoIP phones today are packed with what can seem like an endless amount of cool options, but that does not mean everyone is dying to try them.
Sometimes, however, there can be features on your phone that can really make your life easier, but may never be uncovered. There is a long list of examples, everything from Do Not Disturb mode, to changing the annoying factory preset ringtone!
For this blog, I did some research and found something that could easily go unnoticed. Something that can easily be turned on and could help people who work in low light situations, or who might not have the best vision.
This feature is setting your phone so that your keypad will light up when in use! And the phone that owns this feature is none other than the Yealink W52P DECT phone!
Activating The Keypad Light On The Yealink W52P DECT Phone
- Press the OK button to enter the main menu
- Select the Settings icon
- In the settings menu, select Display followed by Keypad Light
- Press the Change softkey to check or uncheck the Keypad Light checkbox
And that’s it! Now the next time you need to take your wireless DECT phone into some dark areas, you will have a beacon of light to help you navigate your phone! And maybe…even help you navigate where you’re walking…if it’s really, really dark.
Do you use a DECT phone at work? Is it the Yealink W52P DECT phone? If not, what DECT phone are you using? And does the keypad light up? We want to know!
