Wired Doorbells for Your Home

Browse Products

Sometimes referred to as a doorbell chime box, or wired door chime, wired doorbells are products that are wired from the push button (usually located outside) to either transformer or directly to the unit itself, depending on the model. A wired Doorbell is the unit where you hear the doorbell ringer sound come from. Usually, these are hanging in the foyer or front entryway of your home.

In most cases, a doorbell transformer is required. The doorbell transformer steps down the electric current in your home to 10V-16V that your wired door chime can handle. There are wired doorbell chimes that run off batteries, but a lighted doorbell button will quickly drain the wired chime batteries. 1800doorbell carries are large variety of doorbells (wired doorbell chime box)

A Wired Doorbell Kit vs. a Wired Doorbell

A wired doorbell consists of the doorbell chime box, the unit that emits the wired doorbell sound. To complete the wired chime system you will need a push button, bell wire, and a wired door bell transformer. A doorbell kit consists of a wired doorbell chime box, a wired door chime push button, and a wired door bell transformer — the kits do not come with doorbell wire. Doorbell kits are available with one doorbell wired, one wired chime push button, or with multiple door chime and doorbell push buttons.

A Complete Wired System, Wired Door Bell Kits

There are four components to a complete system. The doorbell (the chime that you hear), the push button (the part your press), bell wire, and a properly sized transformer.

There are wired units that are battery-operated and do not need a transformer. Please be aware if you have a battery-operated wired chime, you cannot use a lighted push button. The lighted button draws too much power and would quickly drain the batteries. If you want to replace a chime in your home, the installation requirements may be different from a new installation. For a replacement, the first step would be to ensure the transformer (if you have one) is working correctly. Next, double-check to ensure the push button is working correctly.

If installing a replacement or new product seems daunting, you might want to think about a wireless product such as a plugin wireless door chime or a battery-operated model. These products have come a long way over the years, and many models are just as stylish as traditional wired versions.
