When we talk about using doorbell buttons for different doors we are typically referring to changing the tune a receiver (or multiple receivers) play when a paired button is pressed.

Yes, almost all wireless doorbells and door chimes allow for different sounds or melodies to play depending on the button that sends the signal. The Carlon/Dimango brand is one of the easiest to program. All of their wireless chime products will follow this same procedure.
You can program the buttons for different sounds by pressing the small “dimple” on each button and selecting the sound you want to hear for that particular button. Very easy!
