All About Wireless Doorbells

A wireless doorbell offers real convenience, and is quickly becoming the most preferred doorbell on the market.

Unlike traditional doorbells, often requiring an expensive electrician to install, a wireless doorbell can be chosen, ordered and paid for online without leaving home.The unit arrives in the post with everything needed, and is easily added with only a few screws (or double sided tape) supplied in the box.

There are other advantages of a wireless over a traditional doorbell. Wireless models are perfect for renters as well as homeowners - they leave little or no damage and can be taken with you when you leave a property. A wireless model can also be given to an elderly, sick, or infirm relative - they can bell you if needed. You can move a wireless model, or change it easily, if required. And, one other great thing is the range and price of contemporary wireless models these days.

If you are technically minded, here is how they work!

The chime you hear is the receiver. That means, the small unit that sits at your front door has a tiny transmitter - easily strong enough to reach anywhere on your house or property you might need to place the chime.

One thing to keep in mind when choosing your wireless doorbell is if you want a battery or a mains model. Whilst the doorbells use very little power, the battery models will need the batteries replaced once and a while (as a rough guide, consider how often you might replace a battery powered smoke detector). Others typically have their chimes placed low, near or on a power socket, where they can draw their power from.

Safety Matters

Please be careful if removing any old, powered doorbells. Switch off the power where it enters the house, and check to see it indeed is switched off. Although it is usually low voltage, this is not always the case. Tape up the ends of any cut wires, keeping the two ends separated as you do (loose wires can cause internal fires if they come into contact).

Consider these factors when selecting your doorbell

• Color and style, both for the bell and chime.

• Read the reviews for chime sounds - is it modern or old fashioned? All our chimes are selected for a pleasant sound that are loud enough for most households.

• The range you require (more expensive models usually have a larger range)

• Do you need multiple chine units, or is one sufficient? Consider areas such as basements and attics.

• Volume control and selecting from different chimes is available from the more advanced models.
