Making another great contribution to technology, Siemens just added a bit fun to the simple task of answering the door.  The Gigaset HC450 offers a sophisticated, yet easy way to control the entrance intercom with your Gigaset cordless phone.  With the simple push of a button, you can greet your visitors at the door, open it, and even turn on the light for them.  How cool is that?

The new Siemens intercom offers several benefits to those who live in single-family or duplex homes, allowing them to greet visitors from anywhere in the house.  You will no longer have to dash to the front door as you can simply open it with the press of a button on your cordless phone.  Equipped with call forwarding, all of the Gigaset HC450's functions can be accessed remotely from your mobile phone.  Use of the DECT wireless standard provides a secure and reliable connection to the intercom, just as it does with all Gigaset cordless phones in your home.  Let the kids in on your way out or tell the postman to leave your package at the door - the HC450 offers convenience we could all use.
