Wireless chimes have come a long way, not only from a technology as well as aesthetically. While looking at the buttons located on this site, you many notice that almost all of them look similar. Typically the wireless doorbell buttons for door chimes are rectangular and made from white ABS plastic. That's because wireless door chimes are essentially transmitters that have to send a wireless signal to a chime receiver when the use pressing the button. If the wireless button was made from brass or any other type of metallic substance, the case surrounding the electronics itself would block the wireless signal it is trying to transmit. As side note, this is the reason many of the chime receivers themselves don't look as good as their wired brothers and sisters. So how do the chime transmitters actually work? When someone presses the button, at the front door for example, the transmitter button will send a wireless signal to a corresponding receiver.
As was mentioned in the previous tab, when you want a decorative wireless doorbell button that's wireless, your selection is limited. These wireless devices must be constructed out of plastic in order to transmit well. There are manufacturers that sell kits that will convert wired doorbell buttons into wireless buttons. Although they tend to be very decorative wireless buttons, they just don't work well. Why? Because the brass or other element that makes the button pretty will tend to diminish the wireless signal. With that said, 1800doorbell does offer some wireless chimes that, depending on your style, you may find decorative. Carlon makes two decorative chime buttons, the RC4130 and the RC4133. These buttons are constructed of ABS plastic but the plastic has a brass or satin silver finish on them...adding an element of decoration to the wireless button.

Once you determine who the manufacturers the chime button, you will need to know some other important factors.
