    Replaced our landline!

    I was looking for a reliable “cellular hub” to connect our two cell phones to when at home (iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy) so we wouldn’t miss any more calls, and the Renny is exactly what we needed. Very easy to use, and alerts us of calls, emails and texts when our phones are out of reach at home. It seems very well constructed, and streams music with great quality for its size. Best of all, I disconnected our landline service last week – no need for it any more now that we use the Renny!

    It arrived very promptly as I expected. Works perfectly. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Love it

    It never fails when I am home, I’m at my desk and my cell phone is charging downstairs in the kitchen. I can never answer it quick enough. I just received my new Renny ringer and I love it. I like the smallish size that fits easily on my desk and ease of instructions and use. With the additional antenna, the ringer works very well between floors and the voice quality is great. I also love that it is “hands free” talking. I had an opportunity to email the company’s customer service department and I was impressed how quickly they responded. I would definitely recommend.

    Sorry about the delay on this return, but I had to see if I could drop my land line and ourchase an IPhone. it took time, thus the delay. Didn’t work well enough in my house to actually drop my land line so I do not need to use rhis device. Thank you.

    Great product – love it!

    This device seems to be very well constructed and the sound quality is excellent for its size. Once you set it up initially it automatically connects when you come home. I bought the Rentenna range extender as well, which clearly helps with the range in a larger house. I will be strongly recommending the Renny to my family and friends. I don’t like having my smartphone on me all the time when I’m at home and this is the definitive answer – never miss an incoming call!

    :

    Great home base station!

    I wanted a home base station to alert me of texts and emails so I wouldn’t miss them when my cell phone is lying around the house, and this works perfectly. This is an A+ product unlike anything out there I’ve seen (despite it looking like a Bluetooth speaker – the Renny does way more.) Volume control is a little tricky if you don’t read the manual – you have to hold down the volume + button (and can’t just press it) to get the volume to go up, but after you turn it up once out of the box, it stays loud for calls, texts, etc. Hands free calling works great, and the sound quality is excellent too!

  20. 5 out of 5

    :

    The Renny is great!

    I really love my RENNY. Now I never miss a call at home when my phone is on the charger in my bedroom and I’m in the living room or kitchen. The RENNY is a high quality durable product with great sound. I recommend the RENNY.

  21. 5 out of 5

    :

    A well made product with excellent sound quality

    I bought this because I don’t like wearing my cellphone all the time when in the house and I’ve missed calls in the past. I bought the range extender to make sure the Renny would work no matter where the cellphone is located. It was very easy to set up and to operate from the get-go. The Renny is very well made, it’s a chunky little thing that won’t easily be knocked off of a shelf or counter and it looks cool in my opinion (clean lines, unobtrusive). The sound quality is excellent for a device as small as this and you can use it to play music from your iPhone as well. So if you see a need as I did, I strongly recommend you consider picking up this little device.

  22. 5 out of 5

    :

    The item arrived as scheduled, was well packaged and worked as described. It is unobtrusive, yet sleek looking. The setup was simple for each of two phones and the sound is amazingly clear (on both ends). Would definitely recommend. I plan on buying another one.

    High Quality Unit

    This unit would not work properly with my iPhone 5s. So why the 5 star rating? The answer: because Olens Technology has the best customer service I have ever seen. The Renny would not stay connected to my phone. I contacted Olens Technology and they worked with me in every way imaginable to correct the issue including sending me a second unit. It too would not stay connected to this phone. Olens Technology paid to ship both units back to them and I was not out a penny. They are outstanding. Now to the unit. When it was connected it worked perfectly. It was loud and clear. For some reason it just did not like this phone, or the phone did not like it. The company tells me that there is a very small percentage of iOS devices (Apple) experiencing this issue and they are investigating the problem. My recommendation: Go ahead and try the unit. If it stays connected to your phone without disconnecting as mine did, you will have a valuable quality made Bluetooth ringer. If for some reason it doesn’t function properly you will have no problem returning it. I might add that this is a finely crafted element looking device.

    interesting…

    checked with my electronics guru, my son, and he had never heard of this item. We both checked out the ratings on amazon, and I believe he wound up buying one as well! Works fine!

  25. 3 out of 5

    :

    Technical problems but an honest company!

    One expects a speaker phone to stay connected with iPhone 5 during a conversation. With Renny, that is an unrealized expectation. I returned the purchased one only to get a second one that exhibits the same failure mode. I now have a $95.00 paper weight on my desk. Doesn’t answer, doesn’t play nice with iPhone 5, doesn’t work.

    As a code to my previous review, Olens Technology contacted me (unsolicited) and processed a full refund with Amazon. Notwithstanding the aforementioned interface problems, the unsolicited refund speaks highly of the business ethics and responsibility of the company that makes the product. I’ll track future comments from purchasers to see if Olens remedies the problem and if so, will purchase it again. It is an elegant design.

    LOVE IT

    I have used the Jambox and a few other high priced (above $150) bluetooth speakers and The Renny is easily on par with those. PLUS it answers phone calls!

    Great bang for the buck!

    Renny is a great product.

    I was actually surprised with the Renny. It does everything that was advertise. I love it. It is great when I leave my phone in another room and a call comes in, I don’t have to look for my phone.
    It has great volumn and clarity. It handles two separate phones easily.
    I love it and I am getting another one.
    I have already recommend Renny to friends and family.

    Did you miss 3 handsets of home phone?

    I received your Renny yesterday and really happy using it.
    We used to have home phone with 3 handsets but disconnected the service and switched to mobile phone so that we can carry anywhere outside and get the phone call.

    But the problem happened when we got home. It’s not that we watch the phone all the time at home or carry it with us in the pockets of comfortable home-wearing-cloths, we leave the cell phone here and there, and sometimes we don’t know where it is and misses the phone call. We always thought “Why is there only one handset!”

    So, I was looking for any extended phone call receiver but surprisingly there was almost none! Bluetooth is notorious for it’s short service range so I can’t use any Bluetooth speakers. I used to have 2.4GHz handsets that i can carry the phone anywhere in the house but what’s the point of having another set if I can’t leave the phone outside the leaving room? So Bluetooth is not an option, then I searched if there’s Wifi handset. But there was none.

    Then I found this Renny which perfectly matched my needs. Long range Bluetooth with external antenna worked perfectly even when the phone was left in the corner room upstairs. Ability to have 2 device connection was also very useful.

    So far, I would say this device is one of the unique that meets peoples needs perfectly. When My wife first saw Renny she also said that “Yeah, this one is speaker phone? that’s even better!”

    Thanks for inventing/manufacturing such a nice product.

  37. 5 out of 5

    This is a great product idea. Works very well. Great for streaming music from my phone, for conference calls, and for providing another “ringer” when my phone is in another room.

    :

    Really Enjoyed the product

    I ordered and recieved the Renny and really enjoy it. Pairing was simple and the ability to listen to music while using Padora on my phone is a real plus. I love the way I am able to leave my phone laying in another room and still answere calls on the Renny all the way upstairs. The sound is much better then I would have imagined

  39. 5 out of 5

    :

    Wonderful!

    I received the Renny as a gift for Christmas and was really pleased with how very easy and simple to set up and use, you just hold down a button for a few seconds and the Bluetooth connects. I didn’t even read the directions.

    While the Renny is on, it connects automatically to my phone and the verbal ‘caller number’ is a great feature.

    My car doesn’t have Bluetooth, so this works great and so easy to use while driving. It even works on both floors in the house.

    I had one inquiry for the customer service department and got a response almost immediately.

    Solves a problem

    Renny allows me to “store” my phone back in the bedroom charger, and still know when someone is trying to reach me. Solves the problem I tried to solve. Good product.

    Miss fewer calls at home

    This is a very nice device. It is smaller than I expected, its just a bit larger than a pint carton of milk, and the setup is very easy. This device works very similar to the Bluetooth in your car. This works very well for us, because we tend to have our phones set to vibrate so as to not interrupt our normal day, but when we get home, our phones are rarely in our pockets. Renny to the rescue, as this device will connect with your phone when you get home, and will ring when your phone should ring. We also like that this works with our Windows Phones to read text messages and all you to text replies by speaking to the Renny, just make sure that you are articulate and annunciate properly and that feature works fantastic and is great for when you are cooking, reading, or otherwise not able to have your hands on your phone.

    The Rinny Ringer is working flawlessly.

    I purchased the Renny ringer for myself and it arrived two days before New Year’s. After setting it up and pairing it with my iPhone 5 I found that all of the features worked except for incoming phone calls. All incoming calls were still answered by the iPhone. I emailed tech-support with Olsons technology the day before New Year’s I received a response back that same day. They suggested I try with a different iPhone and let them know what the results were. They felt I had a bad Renny and they would replace it. However, after trying a different iPhone I found that it did work with that one, I reset all the settings on my iPhone 5 and Renny popped up and is working perfectly. I am extremely impressed by Olens technology and their support team, being able to get an email response back New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day is unheard of. Thanks guys.

    Renny Rocks!

    I love it! I’m surprised how much I use it, it’s super handy especially since my phone is never on me or if it is it’s on silent. And to boot it has a kickin sound system?!? Highly recommended!

  45. 5 out of 5

    :

    Just what I needed.

    I received this as a gift, and I never realized how useful it was until I put it to work. I work from home, so I’m typically all over the place in my house. The Renny has saved my butt more than a couple of times from missing important calls. In addition, the sound from the speaker is high quality and impressive as a bluetooth speaker to say the least. I would recommend the Renny to anyone in a similar situation.

    awesome

    i love this devise, i was so amazed with what it can do. you can be anywhere in the house and use it when someone is calling you and you dont have your cell phone next to you. this is so well worth buying.

    Set it up and forget it… Perfect Christmas gift! I have this now about 3 months and I forget it’s even here in my house….Then the phone rings and it turns on and tells me I have a call or a text..LOUD and CLEAR! Easy one time set up, good base for music plus the ability to take it around your house if your phone is in the charger! A must have……

  49. 5 out of 5

    :

    The Renny works great with the iPhone too! Of all the products out there that I’ve seen, no other product acts like the Renny. For instance, when I walk into my house while talking on the phone and the Renny is on, the Renny will not steal the call. It knows I’m on the phone and waits to connect until I hang up. Another example is if I make a call using my phone while it is connected to Renny, the Renny will not steal the call and will let me use the phone without making me disable Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth products I’ve used make you turn off the Bluetooth on your phone every time before you can use it to make a call. The same goes for incoming calls – with Renny, if I answer a call with my phone, I’m talking on my phone. If I answer a call with Renny, I’m talking through Renny (with excellent clarity I might add). The Renny is the only “smart” ringer/speaker out there that I’ve seen. There are similar products for twice the price that don’t have these features AND the streaming music quality is better in the Renny.

    One of the other reviews here says all iPhone sounds are played through the Renny and you can’t Mute them, but that is inaccurate. The Mute button on the iPhone can mute all text and email notifications through the Renny except for phone calls. You can also turn off/down the sounds of videos and anything else using the volume on the phone or the bluetooth button in the application. Finally, the excellent range makes this a stellar product!

    This is seriously the best cell phone accessory I’ve ever used. Much more than a speaker (although the sound quality when playing music is superb.) The range is great (we live in a two story house and when my phone is upstairs, the Renny works great downstairs). No need for a home phone anymore with this device. Plus, my wife and I take it with us on trips because it’s portable and sounds great in hotel rooms. Great product – 5 stars.

    After using Renny for a few weeks, my husband and I decided to get rid of our landline and use our cell phones as our home phone. Renny works great to notify us of incoming calls and texts, so we thought why continue to pay for a home phone we hardly use! I love the music streaming feature as well – the speaker quality is amazing for its size, great for listening to music in the kitchen or by the pool. Overall we are very happy with this product… it makes our cell phones “feel” like a landline! We love it!

    Renny Bluetooth Home Ringer

    What a great product. About the size of half a soda can. I have no cell service in my basement so I leave my phone upstairs and with this unit I can answer my cell phone downstairs with no problem! I had considered getting a cell phone repeater but it would have cost over $250. THIS THING REALLY WORKS AND THE SOUND QUALITY, ESPECIALLY WITH MUSIC, IS TERRIFIC! Highly recommended.

    Just like the car bluetooth for home, but better!

    I love that with the bluetooth in my car, its easy to control my phone calls and music directly through my steering wheel, without even taking my phone out of my purse. I’m excited that I can now do the same thing at home.
    The Renny will announce calls coming in and allows you to make calls directly from the device. It works across the house and even between floors, so you don’t have to carry your phone around with you everywhere, run across the house to catch a call, or miss calls when you can’t hear your phone ring. My friend has a 3 story house and can get reception across the 3 floors with the antennae addition.

    I use my Renny every day as a speaker for streaming music from my phone, the quality is so much better than my phone. You can even use the buttons on the Renny to move through songs. And its good for music for backyard bbqs or picnics in the park. Since its small, a little smaller than a fist, its easy to carry along, and the quality is great for this little machine!

    Its very simple to set up and use, you just hold down a button for a few seconds and the bluetooth connects. I didn’t even read the directions and felt comfortable using it. While the Renny is on, it connects automatically to my phone. I typically just turn it off when I have my phone with me.

    I was looking for a wi-fi speaker b/c my husband and I have different inputs for our phones, and I was so excited to find this that works as a wi-fi for the phone too!

    Update: Ooooh! And I just realized that the Renny can be used in the car too for the cars without a built in bluetooth speaker!!! It fits perfectly in the cup holder, and you can just use a micro USB car adapter to plug it in if you need to charge it. Great gift for my mother so she can talk hands free in the car!

    The Renny didn’t perform as well as I’d hoped until I added the external antenna. Now it seems to function perfectly, although I’d likevto limit the bluetooth connectivity to phone related issues. We get key clicks, swooshes, etc. out of Renny when using “smart phone” features.

    Very nice

    I wanted a remote ringer for my cell phone, which is my only phone in my house, so I wouldn’t have to carry my cell phone all over the house with me.

    I had great hopes for this little guy and, luckily, it filled most of them.

    PROS:
    1. You can select a ringer from several choices. I have selected one that sounds like a regular old type home phone with a bell type ringer. It’s the loudest!
    2. I had hopes the ringer would be loud; it is: the ringer can be set to very loud.
    3. It seems very well made and heavy for its size,
    4. As soon as you turn off your ear piece blu-tooth, the Renny is activated. It prioritizes your phone to stay connected to it.
    5. Answering your phone call on the Renny results in very acceptable sound quality from the caller, and several callers have responded to my request for a characterization of my voice quality to them while I spoke into the Renny from 5 feet away sitting in my office chair. They said is was not excellent but easily understandable.
    6. I often forget to turn my ringer back on when I get home from work. Not to worry, the Renny doesn’t care, it rings loudly anyway when a call comes in…..Nice feature!!
    7. The set up could not be easier. Turn the Renny on, tell your phone to find a blu-tooth, then select the found blu-tooth on the phone settings page, and everything is good.
    8. The black is very rich looking

    CONS:
    1. I only have one. When a call comes in, if your ear piece blu-tooth has been off and now you turn it on to talk to the caller, or you are expecting a call and you turn your ear piece on, it WILL NOT take the blu-tooth connection away from the Renny. However, if you walk in the house and take your ear piece off and turn it off, the Renny will connect to your phone….just not the other way. The solution is, you have to go into your phones Blu-tooth settings and manually select your ear piece taking the connection away from the Renny. Which is simple…just push on your blu-tooth’s name and it will connect. If you don’t use an ear piece, this is not an issue.

    It’s also possible some phones may permit 2 blu-tooth connections at the same time….mine will not.

    I have an HTC Rezound Cell Phone.

    Beautiful and Functional

    This is a beautiful little device – and worked great. It came on time and I used it out of the box on two conference calls immediately. The sound was perfect. Setup just worked (with an iPhone 5). After that, I played Pandora on it all afternoon. Nice, rich sound.

    I haven’t had it long – but one thing that would be great for a future product is multiple mics – to make it suitable for a full conference table with people sitting all around it. Also, it would be pretty cool to be able to control what alerts went to the device. For example, to be able to monitor the phone, but turn off monitoring text messages. But these are small things. For the price and for what is advertised – it’s a great deal and just plain works.

    Love this!!

    I got this for a bday present and I love it. It works great! Love the auto connect feature. I was out of town for two weeks and it linked immediately to my iPhone when I got home. 5 stars!

    Looks To Be A Great Item To Use When You Don’t Have Your Phone On You. It Also Works Great At Streaming Sound From A iPad Via Bluetooth

    Very pleased with my purchase! The sound is clear rather than sounding like you’re in a barrell like some speaker phones. I bought the speaker to allow me to be able to communicate and take notes hands-free. It works great. Really happy with the purchase. It works great!

    Works great! We don’t have a home phone line and I forget to bring my phone in from my car all the time, so now I don’t miss calls when I’m in the house. Range is incredible with the antenna.

    At first I was comparing the Renny to the Jambox and the Beats Pill, but after reviewing all three, I found that the Jambox and Pill don’t have the functionality of Renny because the others auto shut off when the phone is out of range for 10 minutes. Plus they serve as the default audio source for all call functions and steal the signal every time they connect causing dropped or lost calls to the speaker. Renny connects and disconnects repeatedly without any interference when the phone is in use and automatically selects the correct audio source to use during all calls. No other Bluetooth “speaker” out there can act like the complete cell phone management system that Renny is. Also, it doesn’t matter if the phone’s volume is turned down or off – Renny still rings with even two phones connected at the same time, and let’s you even select from built in ringtones – none of the others have this feature, and it’s awesome because they are “classic” ringtones from the 50′s, 80′s, and newer sounding ones as well. Renny is the opposite of every Bluetooth speaker I’ve tested – It’s a ringer/home base station first, and a speaker second – BUT the sound quality is amazing, and I can’t tell the difference in sound quality between the Renny/Jambox/Pill. Renny also acts like the V-techs and Panasonics, but with added features such as a range of 200 feet, text and email notifications, and the ability to stream high quality stereo music. Best Cell Phone Management System I’ve seen!
