No two businesses have the exact same communication needs, which is why it is important that you get the radios or walkie-talkies that are most suitable for what is actually necessary in your line of work. For smaller companies that need radios but will not use them heavily, we recommend the Motorola CLS1110.

The Motorola CLS1110 radio was produced to give small, but powerful and durable communication in a typical indoor work environment.
Retail stores, doctor offices, churches, nursing homes and other similar settings are exactly the type of workplaces that radio was designed to help.
Here are some of the most typical questions concerning the CLS1110:
Q - Because it is a 1-channel radio, what do I do if there is interference from other radios in my area?
A - There is a difference between possible frequencies and channels. The CLS radio has hundreds of potential frequencies and privacy channels from which to choose. Once you select a frequency that works well for your area, you will 'lock in' that frequency and privacy code to your "channel". This will be the channel that your whole group communicates on. When one person speaks, everyone in your group will hear the communication.
Q - What if a single channel is not enough for our needs?
A - Moving to a multi-channel radio, like the CLS1410, will allow you to "lock-in" up to 4 of the hundreds of possible frequency/privacy-code combinations available. This will allow up to 4 groups of people in your organization to communicate at the same time.
A good example is a larger restaurant. Here, you might have the servers, host, and expediters on channel 1, the car valets on channel 2, the managers on channel 3, and when someone wants to communicate with all groups, they would use channel 4. This will cut out unnecessary chatter between groups. A a benefit, the managers could choose to 'scan' all channels so that they can hear what all groups are discussing. You may find more information on selecting the proper number of two-way radio channels here.
Q - What kind of range can I expect out of the CLS radios?
A - CLS radios are 1-watt, UHF radios. this is perfect for indoor use, and VHF radios are meant for strictly outdoor use
. Being a 1-watt, professional radio, the CLS series give reliable communication inside just about any standard complex. They will easily cover any restaurant, retail operation or office setting and will also allow you to communicate on any nursing home or elementary of high-school campus. A college campus with multiple buildings would require a more powerful radio.
If these radios are used for outdoor communication, they work great and will provide coverage reliably within about a 1-mile radius. But, you will want to restrict the amount of moisture, mud and shock to these type radios. If you are looking at a more rugged setting, you will want to consider a more durable radio, like the Motorola RDX series.
