Wired Push Buttons and Wireless Door Chime Buttons

1800doorbell features over 200 wired and wireles doorbell buttons.  These are the devices typically located on the outside door.

Wired push buttons - these typically connect to the doorbell transfomer.   With battery powered wired doorbells you would connect the button directly to the chime.  Do not use lighted buttons with battery powered chimes.  For lighted buttons, use a wired transformer.

Push Button Compatibility

Top Push Button Questions:
What's the difference between wired & wireless buttons?

A wired button wires directly to the doorbell transformer using "bellwire." If your wired doorbell using batteries vs. a transformer, it wires directly to the doorbell. When a visitor pushes the button, an electrical signal is generated and the chime sounds. Virtually all wireless buttons use a battery, inside the button, for a power supply. It sends a radio wave signal to a compatible receiver. When a visitor pushes the button, a signal is generated and then transmitted.

Can I mix & match wired & wireless buttons?

Not in a literal since. Wireless buttons send a radio signal to a compatible receiver. Wired ones close and electrical loop that cause the chime to ring. The only exception to this is to use a doorbell extender. An extender kit uses a small transmitter that wires into the doorbell transformer. When a visitor pushes the button outside, a radio signal is generated from the installed transmitter, which will send a radio signal to a compatible receiver. In this set up, your existing wired system should function normally, with the added benefit of a wireless system.
