Entrance Alert Door Chime & Door Entry Chimes for Business

The products listed on 1800doorbell.com are designed for ease of installation while providing great security for your home, business, or office. While these products are not complete security systems, they office a great way and easy way to secure your home or office.

Entry alerts or entrance chimes send instant notifications when someone enters through a monitored zone. Used by businesses, shops, and stores not only as a security precaution but also for customer service enhancement.

When to Use Motion Sensor Based Entrance Alarms:

  • Use in hallways or when door stays open (mall entrances for example)
  • Use when metal doors or building materials may prevent magnetic door/window contacts from working correctly

When to Use Window/Door Contacts for Entry Alerts:

  • You want detection only when door or window is opened
  • You don't want any "motion-based" false alarms

Door Alarms (Entrance Alarms) detect when someone enters a door motion sensor monitored zone, a door opens or when pressing a doorbell pushbutton. Most of our wireless products have a longer range (from the sensor to the receiver) than products you might find at your local hardware store. This range is a necessity at warehouses, shops, stores, and over long distances. Need a strobe light, siren, or additional accessory for your kit?

At 1800doorbell.com, we specialize in longer range door alert products where system installation is easy without requiring an election.

Choosing the Right Entrance Alert for your Door Alert Needs

Choosing a warehouse door alert chime for your business or home may seem daunting. We wrote a brief blog article to walk you through some of the criteria to consider when choosing your Next business alert or home entrance alarm.

Common Uses of Entrance Alert Chime Products
  • For office security, receive alerts when someone enters your facility. A Door Open Alarm is a great example of this use. A door and window alarm is triggered when the door or window is opened,
  • Store clerks receive a notification when a customer enters the store. This allows clerks to work in other areas of the store and immediately attend to customers when they enter the store, improving customer service.
  • Entrance alerts for offices are great for warehouses to receive notifications when shipments arrive.
  • Used as a safety measure when children or people we are caring for entering or leave specific areas. A good example would be over an exit door that leads to a swimming pool or spa.
  • A visitor is at the door. This is similar to a door chime for business, or a door buzzer entry system used in an office building. Some of the products listed in this door alarm category may also function as a wireless door chime for business use.
Wireless Door Alert Transmitters
ERA-PIR Motion Entry Alert Sends Signal 4,000 ft.

The transmitter is the device that contains the alert sensor. The sensors are either passive-infrared (triggered when it detects heat and movement), or magnetic-based (triggers when a metallic object passes through a monitored zone). Magnetically based sensors trigger when the magnetic contact between two pieces separates by opening a door or window. When a visitor passes through the sensor, it triggers the transmitter to send a wireless signal to the receiver.

Wireless Door Alert Transmitters
ERA-VPRX Entry Alert Receiver for Entrance Alarm Kits

The transmitter is the device that contains the alert sensor. The sensors are either passive-infrared (triggered when it detects heat and movement), or magnetic-based (triggers when a metallic object passes through a monitored zone). Magnetically based sensors trigger when the magnetic contact between two pieces separates by opening a door or window. When a visitor passes through the sensor, it triggers the transmitter to send a wireless signal to the receiver.

Wireless Door Entry Alert Receivers

The receivers are either battery-powered or plug-in devices. These receivers "receive" the transmitted signal and emit a tone, a melody, or some audible sound to alert the user. Depending on the model, these receivers are packed with features. Many of them have a volume control knob or slider, external outputs for integration with other devices, and are typically expandable by adding more receivers to your kit.

Common Uses of Entry Alert Chimes & Entrance Alarm Door Alerts

These products are very versatile and are used for security and improved customer service. For example, a doctor's office may use a contact-based entry alert that attaches to the door and will alert staff when the door is opened. The nurse at the front desk does not want to be tethered to the front and may have errands to run. For obvious reasons, they do not want to lock the front door every time the nurse leaves his/her desk, so by installing an alert, the nurse will hear a chime sound when the door is opened by a visitor or patient. Customer service is another frequent use of a commercial entrance alert. The store in the mall has an entrance that's always open. During slow operating times, the store clerk may need to go in the back to unpack the product, or help a customer in the dressing room. A motion entrance alert is a great choice.

EZ Chime Door Alert Entrance Alarm by Safeguard Supply

The EZ Chime (EZ-Tone) is a small, self-contained alert that mounts on a door. When the door opens, a small plunger hits a metallic plate producing a tone sound. Ideal for commercial spaces under 2,000 sq ft., the product has been used by stores and businesses all over America. Motion Activated Entrance Alert and Entry Chimes receive an alert instantly when someone, or something, enters a space is easier than you think. The entrance chimes contained on this page are motion-based, meaning they will detect any movement and generate a chime sound. If you have a door or window that typically remains shut, you may be interested in our door, or window contact-based entry alerts. If you have doors or windows with a metallic frame, we recommend motion based entrance chimes to avoid interference.

Common Residential Applications for Door Alerts:

A common application for a door alarm is child safety!  Mount a window/door alarm sensor on the pool gate or patio door leading out to the pool.  When a child opens the gate, a wireless signal is sent to the plug-in receiver alerting you that the door has been opened.  The system can also be expanded by adding additional receivers, both battery-powered and plug-in versions. If you have a swimming pool, most states require a warning device that will alert the guardian when someone opens a door leading out to the pool.  Most parents want that additional peace of mind to know when a door opens, to protect the security of their children and guests.

You may also place a window/door alarm on a cabinet where you store cleaning supplies.  If a child opens the door, the receiver plays a chime or alarm sound. Many homeowners neglect to lock up the storage shed.  Place an outdoor-rated door/window sensor on the shed door.  If a user opens the door, an alarm or chime sound is played on the receiver.

Please call us if you are unsure which product is the best choice for your unique application. Technically speaking, they are used to monitor egress (exits) through monitored areas. Through the use of sensors, typically contact or movement-based, chimes or alarms notify the user that an exit was used. When you need an alert or alarm sound when someone exists through a monitored zone, the exit alarms category is the right place to find the product you need. Whether it's the robust features of a panic bar used to cover an emergency exit, or a simple door/window contact to monitor an exit door, we offer a wide range of products that are cost-effective and reliable.

1800doorbell carries a large assortment of these products that are flexible and may be used in a variety of ways.  To make things better organized, products are grouped into specific categories, but as we explain below, there are many uses for these products.

Exit Alert Products

When these are used to open the door, an alarm sounds. An alternative to these products is a model we call the EX-1, or the HS4317D Keypad Alert.  Using the supplied door/window contacts, this simple to install, the DIY product will emit a gentle chime sound, or an extremely loud alarm sound when an unauthorized door is opened.  The supplied key allows you to turn the alarm on and off.  There are also additional reed switches that may be purchased to allow more than one door to be monitored, in situations like double doors.

Sometimes, a user may want notification of an exit but does not need a loud alarm to sound.  Some inexpensive, but highly effective products are the ST10, HS4317D, and HD4313 Exit Alarms.  These products all retail from $21-$44, and are easy to install. All three of these products work with door/window contact sensors.  When a monitored door or window is opened, an alarm sounds.  The alarm sound is silenced using a supplied key or through a user-programmed code.

Typical Uses of Our Exit Alarms

  • Businesses like using the ST10, HS4317D, and HS4313 to monitor sensitive areas like supply closets and utility closets in apartment complexes, gas stations, or office spaces.  This will not only notify the manager of unauthorized access to a closet but also serve as a deterrent to anyone unauthorized trying to access the area. For authorized access, the manager simply uses the supplied key or punches in a code.  When the door is opened, the alert does not sound.
  • Most commercial locations must maintain exits for emergencies such as fires. Visitors must be able to exit the facility quickly without needing a key. The challenge is that they want to keep the door locked, so people cannot enter from the outside. Products like the Alarm 250 and Alarm 700 by Alarm Lock allow you to do just that. In an emergency, users simply push the bar or paddle, which unlocks the door for a quick exit.
