I doubt much about DECT in the low power market. What are it's advantages? Which is it's niche?

This is an interesting assertion, the claim that "people want" wireless everything. Not really, I don't think. They will buy it if it is offered, possibly, but the ones who are really pushing for it are the marketing people, who want something new to market. Of course, there is a potential for a serious problem or two from the unlimited proliferation of wireless devices, which is that there would be no "clean" spectrum left for some really worthwhile application, and also that, since these devices are unlicensed and have no protection, that some other type of system could start using the same part of the spectrum, with greater power, and render all of the wireless gimmicks unusable. That would result in a lot more waste being added to the waste stream. Besides those reasons, the fact remains that a wired connection uses less power than a wireless connection, and is more secure, as well.
