In this cot com era, the world is changing so fast to the extent that some people are always busy with little time to answer calls. This may not be show-biz, but strictly business reasons where one’s hands are engaged in work, with no room for picking up the phone.
A driver may need to pick a call, yet the other hand is supposed to engage the gears while another is holding the steering.
In such cases, the answer to this would be the handsfree kit. This can help answer a phone call while your hands are at work.
A Handsfree kit is a set of equipments that can be used without the use of hands. It is one which needs only limited use of hands or for which the controls are positioned so that the hands are able to occupy themselves with another task.
These equipments, either hand or simple wired, plug and play or wireless. Hard wired especially used in a car are usually fitted by qualified personnel. They require a wiring from one end to another while connecting the ear and mouth pieces.
This may also include the ear phones with a mouth piece.
Plug and play is a type that both sits in and charges directly from socket powered to allow usage.
The wireless handsfree is a Bluetooth software compatible kit. This communicates without any wire connections. They still require a mobile phone or other devices to initiate a call.
The technology is also very much compatible with most modern appliances, and automotive. Unlike with the mobile phone for example, this option in the car utilises the vehicle’s speakers to transmit the caller’s voice in the phone call.
It has an embedded microphone in the stereo unit itself, the steering wheel, or use a separate wired microphone that can be placed anywhere in the vehicle.
The technology is recommended for use while driving. The car kit can be acquired at Rwf50, 000 while the mobile kit costs less than Rwf7000.
