Here's the answer for folks who have an existing wired doorbell or door chime that is not loud enough

Frequently we have customers call who can't hear their doorbell or door chime in many rooms of their home.  Or, perhaps the basement was built-in, but the doorbell can't be heard downstairs.  For various reasons, doorbell wiring was not run to the new addition of the home.  So now what do you do?  Viola!  The RC3200 Extend A Chime is here to save the day!

The Extend-A-Chime is a Dimango wireless doorbell extender.  It works by connecting your existing wired doorbell - already installed in your home - with a wireless door chime receiver that ships with this kit.  Once you have the system set up (done in a matter of minutes) you can add-on more receivers, entrance alerts, and other Carlon (Dimango) brand wireless devices.

The RC3200 ships as a set: a transmitter (RC3050T) and the receiver/speaker (RC3253).  The transmitter is a 1"X3" sized unit that you wire into your existing door chime.  The unit is a snap to install and is a basic DIY project.  After connecting the transmitter, simply plug in the wireless door chime receiver/speaker wherever you need to hear your chime.

How does the wired doorbell extender work?  When someone pushes your doorbell pushbutton, your existing wired chime initiates a signal to the receiver/speaker.  That's it! The set ships with everything you need to extend the listening range of your existing wired door chime set.

If you would like to add additional receivers in other areas of your home or business, the RC3253 is an add-on plug-in door chime receiver.  There is also a battery powered version of both the set and the additional add-on receivers, if you would like to add a chime that can be carried with you or taken out in the yard.

Perfect in situations where you cannot run wires to extend your existing doorbell or door chime units.

Basic Features of This Product:

  • Set ships with a transmitter and a receiver.  The transmitter is the RC3050T and the receiver is the RC3253
  • Wireless Extend a Chime Transmitter, RC3050T, works with 16 volt transformers 
  • By changing the dip switch settings on the transmitter, you can determine the sound
  • Transmitter is capable of transmitting a chime for front door and sound for back door
  • From transmitter to receiver max range of up to 150 feet.  Environmental factors could limit range
  • Receiver has 2 1/4 inch speaker which produces excellent sound quality
  • Volume control
  • Privacy codes to ensure transmitter does not communicate with other units
  • Manufacturer's five year warranty

Your order process and delivery were both well done. My client (a tough one who expects things to work effectively) was quite happy. Now, no matter where she is in the large house, she can easily know when someone goes to their gate and rings the doorbell - and we didn't have to put any holes in her house.

I ordered the RC3200 RC3200 Extend-A-Chime Set rnTo eliminate an area of our house where we could not hear the door chime. It has a volume control and is a plug in and use unit. A great product.

Worked very well; the only criticism is that the black caps that set the ringtone were hard to locate. Turns out they were on the battery cap, not the plug-in accessory and had to be removed with a needle nose plier. The directions should have specified where exactly the caps were located. Other than that, am pleased with the product.

The Extend a Chime door chime extender works very well and would get a 5 star rating except for one little problem. When we have storms or high winds, the chime activates all by itself. We just unplug it until the storm is over.

In our home the wired doorbell cannot be heard in the master bedroom. By adding the "Plug-In Extend-A-Chime Door Chime Extender" we are now able to answer the doorbell when we are in that room. The product is quite good. The transmitter is easily attached to the existing doorbell, and the receiver/chime simply plugs into any house electric outlet. It took five minutes to install with just a screw driver.

the hard wire system is what we needed for our location. The ones from the local HD stores would not work. How ever the volume is to low even on high so it is hard to hear. The ones from the local HD have a higher volume for our location.

We live in a old and large brick home, with lots of brick walls and a completely finished basement, with no opportunity to run wires. At its loudest setting, I could not hear our door bell from my lower level office. No more! This plug in extend a chime door bell installed in minutes, and is clearly heard throughout the lower level.

really easy install works great upstairs and down stairs, do wish the volume was a bit louder, and if the doorbell could be a brown color instead of white that would also be great. but all in all i really like it and i have tried multiple other door bell fixes and this one really worked! YEA!

I'd called 1800 Doorbell about how to and what to add to enable us to hear our doorbell on our porch and in the office on the other side of the house from the wired doorbell.rnrnI ordered the RC3500D Battery Powered Extend-A Chime to accomplish the solution for the porch and the RC3253 Door Chime Plug In Receiver for the office. A 5 minute installation and our problems are solved. Guests and delivery people no longer need to bang their fists or knuckles on our door to get our attention. rnrnDelivery of the order was quick. I highly recommend these products to solve not being able to hear your doorbell in parts of you house.

The first one received did not work. Another was quickly sent, and I wasn't required to return the defective one. I'm keeping the unit. But I can't give it a high rating because its volume is so low, even at its highest setting. It's just barely loud enough to hear clearly from one room away.

Works perfectly. We added a sun room to the back of the house and a second floor above. We could not hear the door bell from either space. We purchased and installed wireless door chime and extra receiver. Money well spent. The transmitter must be wired to existing low voltage door bell; very good instructions and very easy to do. Highly recommended.

We have had one of these in our home for a dozen years so that you can hear the doorbell in the basement. Works great. I recently bought another so that my mother could hear the doorbell when she is in the back part of her house. Now she can hear the doorbell ring back there even when she isn't wearing her hearing aids.

I bought this for my mother since her doorbell is too quiet to hear. The directions for installing this product were easy to follow and the installation went smoothly. My mother was excited she could choose from several different ring tones...and these could be changed seasonally if one chooses very easily. We plugged the "sounding device" in a more centralized area, and now the doorbell is VERY easy to hear. GREAT PRODUCT and very fast delivery. I got it in time for Christmas when I didn't expect that would happen.
