Top Three Two Way Radios for Indoor and Outdoor Use

When considering purchasing a two way radio system, one of the most important factors to consider is where the devices will be used. For example, devices that are intended for use in harsh outdoor situations have different features than those intended solely for indoor, close-range use. But what if you need a device that performs optimally in both indoor and outdoor environments? 

There’s no need to sacrifice functionality or carry multiple radios for different uses. A number of devices offer the flexibility to be used in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings, and we’ve profiled three of our top picks below.

Motorola DTR650

This affordable and versatile business walkie talkie is well suited to a variety of industries such as construction, education and property management, where employees might be spaced out in different locations in the same general area. With the use of an extended antenna accessory, the coverage area is up to 350,000 sq. ft or multiple floors inside.

In addition to exceptional coverage, the DTR650 has a minimum battery life of 14 hours and weighs just 7.6oz, making it incredibly lightweight and portable.

This small device packs a lot of punch, but is only 900MHz, meaning that you do not require a license to operate it.

Motorola XPR3500

The MOTOTRBO series of devices combines two way radio functionality with the latest in digital technology. The XPR3500 is a versatile and powerful two way radio that has the added flexibility of being completely scalable and functions in both analog and digital modes. This means you can make the transition from analog to digital at your own pace, when the time is right for your business.

This two way radio packs a lot of power while still being light weight (10.8oz) and portable. The XPR3500 is also extremely durable; whether you use it indoors or outdoors, you can have full confidence it will withstand the rigors of the job. Rated IP55 for water protection and US Military 810 C,D,E,F and G, in addition to the standard Motorola two-year warranty.
