Is your home phone secure from neighbors listening in to your conversations? Do you use cordless phones in your home? Do you live in a close proximity to your neighbors? If so, it is important that you choose the right type of phone for your home. Some cordless telephones can be picked up using receiving mechanisms or even radios. How do I know this? Well, I found out that my neighbor's baby monitor was somehow picking up the my phone signal. He could hear all of my telephone conversations through his baby monitor. When he told me this, I quickly started researching cordless home phones and found out what I had to look for to ensure the next phone that I purchased would not have the same issues.
