5 handsets for $140

This set from Vtechphones has a new feature which seems very useful. While these DECT 6.0 phones have had an intercom feature from the beginning, this one has an intercom system called "Push to Talk". It allows you to broadcast your voice throughout the house to say "Dinner is ready", "I need help with groceries", etc.
You can still intercom if you want to talk to one particular handset. We have been using the phone pager as a way to buzz the entire house, but you have to guess what the reason is for the buzz.

The "Connect to Cell" feature is particularly useful for up to two cell phones. You plug the cell phones within a few feet of the base set, and while they recharge the calls are relayed through the handsets. This feature does two valuable things: (1) allows you to answer your cell calls throughout the home while they are recharging, (2) takes care of frequent "dead spots" that are often in homes (especially basements).

In addition to the two cell phones, you can plug in a Plain Old landline or Magic Jack or VOIP, or Home Connect system for a third line.
