Oricom CARE170

5.0 from 1 review


Great for elderly people living on their own. We test it every couple of months and it works every time. Mum has only accidently set it off once in two years and it is easy to cancel and she just rang to say she was fine.
Excellent product, easy for my mum to use and no on going costs.
Would be nicer if slighlty longer range as my mum has a very big backyard and it won't reach to the end of the yard.

Hi Liz, thanks for the message. The CARE170 is a discontinued model. Please check out oricom.com.au for the available models in the current range. All the best, Oricom.

Have just installed the phone which works really well for outgoing calls. I have a problem in that it will not allow incoming calls. Those who try and phone in hear silence for a while followed by the disconnected sound. If we replace the phone with the old one normality is restored

My Mum has had the Care 170 phone for about 6 years and lately the light keeps flashing we have checked and there are no messages on this phone as per the manual and the only way we can stop the light flashing is disconnect the phone and remove the batteries. Is there anything else we can do to stop this?
