Our Residential VoIP Offers Unified Communications Solution
Monster VoIP offers a standard set of modern communication features that can benefit homeowners looking for a cloud-based unified communications solution. Improve your calling experience with better and affordable VoIP calling residential features. Here are some of the major features that make us one of the best VoIP services providers:
Music on hold
Lets you choose pre-recorded music to be played while a call is on hold. The music-on-hold feature is an important feature for businesses to let their customers know that they are put on hold and to somehow keep a calm atmosphere while they are waiting for the agents to handle them appropriately. Our Residential VoIP phone service enables users to explore options to further get the most out of the feature. You can upload your own voice recorded messages or choose any music and make voice recordings for certain numbers.
Anonymous Call Rejection
Our anonymous call rejection feature automatically rejects calls without Caller ID and prevents blocked Caller IDs and anonymous callers from contacting you.
Online Control Panel
Our online control panel feature enables users to manage your account in real-time and control every VoIP feature via your internet browser. Through the control panel, you can view call logs, retrieve voicemails and order more VoIP add-ons.
Though the call recording feature is available in traditional landline phones, it can be quite costly because you need a gadget that will connect your phone to a digital recorder. With our internet phone service, you can organize, store and review recorded calls through our system. You don’t need any gadget to record calls.
Advanced Call ID
Monster VoIP Call ID has basic and advanced features that traditional landline phones lack. With our Advanced Call ID feature, residential customers are protected from unwanted calls whether you are at home, in the office or on vacation.
Do Not Disturb
The feature’s name says it all. The Do Not Disturb (DND) is a great VoIP function when you are on an important meeting or up to something that requires your full focus and attention. When it is activated, it will automatically ignore and blocks all calls. Such calls will be transferred to your voicemail where you can also check them through your email.
Conferencing (Multi-Way Calling)
Traditional landline phones offer call conferencing (3-way calling) but such old phone service system doesn’t allow conference callers to talk face to face. With VoIP, you can enjoy face to face communication with other users through your browsers no matter where you are.
VoIP services aren’t only focused on phone calls. Residential and business VoIP providers let you fax online even without having a fax machine. It lets you send and receive faxes through the internet. Faxing will never go obsolete, especially if you can conveniently do it online.
