Are you a store owner who wants to know when a customer enters your store?  The DC1, a mechanical entrance alert, does that by sounding a simple “Ding” sound when someone opens a monitored door.  There are no wires, no electricity, and installation is simple and easy.  You may have seen these devices in a Subway store, a KFC, or even your local gas station, as these products are used by commercial buildings all over the world.

The 1800Doorbell EZTone Entrance Alert Chime is a popular choice for businesses, gas stations, convenience stores, or other retail locations who want a quality entrance alert that requires no wires or batteries to operate.  The unit installs on the door frame and a small magnet is installed on the door. A plunger with a metal end sticks out of the chime box and sticks to the magnet (when the door is shut.)  As the door is opened, the plunger is pulled, until the force is too much for the magnet. This causes the plunger to retract back inside the box where it strikes a metallic plate, producing a loud, but gentle “ding” sound.  This entrance alert is effective and ideal for areas with 2,000 square feet or less.

Many people choose this product over other entry alert products due to the fact it does not require batteries, wiring, or any electricity to operate.  Maintenance free at a great price point makes this a standout product.

The DC1 EZ Tone Door Chime Entrance Alert is loud enough to be heard in stores or offices up to 2,000 sq. ft. in size.  The EZ Tone is one of our best selling products! EZ Tone customers include, Subway, Blockbuster, Winn-Dixie, US Postal Service, KFC, Dollar General Stores, Little Caesars, and many professional offices nationwide. The EZ Tone Door Chime can usually be installed within 15 minutes, and has a long, maintenance free life.

The standard DC1 is dark brown in color.  However, introduced in 2010, we also carry the DC1-GRAY which is a light gray color.

  • The unit measures 5-1/2” L X 2” H X 2-1/2” W
  • One year warranty
  • Installs on in-swinging and out-swinging doors
  • Kit ships with the DC1, a mounting bracket, mounting screws, and a drill bit

    after using my door alert for around 2 mo. im inclined to write a review. mostly never do a review from the time of contact , which was very friendly, helpful, knowing of the product , i received two door alerts which i find to do the job very well. the tone can be heard at the back of my store over the noise of ref. compressors and other store noise. distance is 64 feet from end to end. i would recommended these door alerts to any small business to help insure safety.upon contacting the business i was treating very well including informing me i had forgot to sign the check, yes they accept checks, and were sending it back for my signature, i received the delivery in less than 3 wks. the only problem i have is it is advertise as gray in color when in fact it is more of a off white it didnt match my door way but that isnt what makes it work i will be buying more product from this company as needed good to have a honest company working with you GOD BLESS AMERICA and products

    Myself and 3 other people had a problem installing this unit in my office. Linda with the company called when we asked for installation help. She proceeded to tell me the 4 of us were "too dumb" to install it. She would not give me the owner of the company contact info. I reported to Amazon as well. I have never been talked to that way from someone I spent any amount of money with. Zero stars.

    Easy to install, but not very loud. I read all the glowing reviews before purchasing this unit, and to say that I was disappointed would be an understatement. Called 800Doorbell, and they said that was as loud as it is, and that it wouldn’t change with age. If you need something that you can hear from more than 10 feet away, then don’t buy this unit. Very disappointed in the product, but it isn’t the fault of the seller.

    We are sorry you aren’t happy with your purchase. This product works great in small to medium sized areas 1,000sqft to 2,0000 sqft max. As we stated in the description, it does have a “gentle tone” which is great in some situations, but not all. We would be more than happy to exchange this product with something that’s louder..just let us know.
