General Information About Doorbells
What's the difference between a battery doorbell & plug-in door chimes?
When referencing wireless chime or wireless doorbells, the difference is in the receiver. Both categories use a battery operated push button, but plug-in chime use a receiver than plugs into a standard wall outlet. Battery operated systems use batteries to power the receiver. In many cases, you can mix and match battery powered and plug-in receivers when manufactured by the same company (check with us first!)
Do I need a wireless or wired chime?
Great question that's often asked. Wired systems typically mean the push button is wired to the receiver. Wireless systems use radio signals between the push button and the receiver. For a more detailed explanation, see our informative article “Wired vs. Wireless Doorbell.”
What are long range chimes?
Most residential chimes have a range of up to 150 ft. from transmitter (push button) to the receiver. This is line of site, with no interference. Larger homes, businesses with thick concrete walls require more power, which is where longer-range products are necessary.
How can I hear my existing wired system better?
Extend-a-chimes, or extenders are great options. A small transmitter wires into your existing chime transformer and when the button is pressed, this transmitter sends a wireless signal to a battery powered or plug-in receiver. This allows you to place new receivers throughout your home to allow you to hear the chime better.
Is it hard to wire a doorbell?
We recommend hiring an electrician to install a new system. If you have an existing system and have identified which part is broken, it's not too difficult to replace that part. However, because you are dealing with electricity, we recommend a licensed electrician.
The first step is to identify the problem, i.e.., what part is not working correctly. If you determine the push button is broken, see our article about replacing it here. If the wired chime itself is broken, take a look at this reference article here.
I have a loud shop and need a wireless product. What do you recommend?
Because this is a commercial application, we recommend a long range system. The ERA-UTDCR which has a 4,000 ft. range (with option for a flashing strobe light) is the perfect choice for this application. You may also want to read about the ERA-UTDCR by Safeguard Supply.
