When you have a wired doorbell in your home that you just can't hear in other rooms, or when you current wired doorbell isn't loud enough, the Carlon RC3500D may be the solution you are seeking.
This is called a doorbell extender or "extend a chime" by Carlon/Dimango. The product works when the included transmitter is wired into your existing wired doorbell transformer. When a visitor presses the button outside, the wireless transmitter sends a signal to the receiver that is included in the kit.
Simply wire the small transmitter into your existing doorbell transmitter by following the easy to follow instructions. Then make sure you have batteries in a receiver/speaker and you have successfully extending your chime.
The solution works great in situations where wiring a new doorbell is out of the question or for the hard of hearing.
- Receiver runs on 4 C-size alkaline batteries
- The receiver may be mounted horizontally or vertically
- Volume control on receiver
- Plays six different tunes, selected on the transmitter

This unit gives you additional flexibility not traditionally offered with other doorbell units.
Lamson Home Products has verified that the following WIRED models are NOT compatible with our Carlon Brand Door Bells. These units are the "Musical Record-A-Tune" which requires a micro processor within the circuit board which makes the "Extend-A-Units" continuously ring. Therefore, they are not compatible with RC3500D/RC3030D/RC3200D.
We also found that some of the Broan Product Line of WIRED doorbells are NOT compatible either.
