LRA Products

Yes, we have many wireless doorbell and wireless notification systems that work well for the hard of hearing. These products will also work well for loud environments, such as workshops, where it may be hard to hear a normal door chime. In most cases these products will feature an alternative way to notify the user, such as a visual notification. For example, the WC180 is a flashing door chime for the hard of hearing. It's a wireless chime with a strobe light that features a flashing strobe light that is bright and easy to see.
The LRA-D1000S kit comes programmed.  The LRA-PBTX and the LRA-DCRXS are programmed and the receiver (LRA-DCRXS) will play a standard "ding-dong" sound when triggered.  The change this melody, please follow the video instructions below.
A) If you have a wired doorbell system, the Extend-A-Chime is just what you need. It is available as a kit, the LRA-EX1000. The kit works like this:  a small, battery powered transmitter is wired into your existing wired door chime.  When a visitor presses the wired push button on your door, you doorbell rings as addition to that, the small transmitter generates a signal and trigger the receiver that comes in the kit to play a chime sound. The Extend-A-Chime will allow you to easily increase the range of your current doorbell or door chime system so you will be able to hear it when you are out on your back deck. If you have a wireless doorbell system, you will need to purchase a compatible receiver for your system. Manufacturer's vary on how you determine compatibility. If it is a brand we sell, give us a call and we would be happy to help.

There is a product that we carry that would be the perfect solution to your problem and that is the LRA-EX1000 Doorbell Extender by Safeguard Supply. To see this product, view that answer to the question below.

In most cases, if your LRA-DR1000 is not working correctly, it is because of one of three issues: 1) Photo sensor dip switch is set to night time mode only 2) Sensor/transmitter not paired with receiver correctly 3) Weak or dead batteries in sensor/transmitter 1) Photo Sensor Inside Driveway Sensor (outdoor unit) May Be Set to Nighttime Only Mode: The LRA-DSTX transmitter/sensor has two operating modes, all-day mode and nighttime only mode. Often times, if the transmitter doesn't seem to be working, it is because the dip switch is set to nighttime mode only. To check this setting, please take the top cover off the sensor/transmitter an orientate as in the picture. Once you have the sensor oriented just like the photo, located the photocell dip switch which will be located directly under the "test" button. For all-day operation, please ensure the switch is pushed all the way down. If you want nighttime only operation, make sure the switch is in the up position. 2) Transmitter is not Paired Correctly with the Receiver: Watch this short video on Youtube we put together to help with programming the transmitter/sensor with the receiver a) Push the program button on the receiver until you hear a short tone sound b) Once you enter program mode, Zone 1 on the receiver will flash. If you want to pair your transmitter to Zone 1, move to step d). If you want to pair to a different zone, go to the next step. c) Pushing the program button will move to the next zone. For example, when you enter program mode the receiver is in Zone 1. If you want to pair your receiver to Zone 2, pushing the program button again will move it to Zone 2. d) Once you are in the Zone you want to program, push the melody selector button until you are the sounds you want the receiver to play when the transmitter/sensor is triggered. e) Push the "test" button on the sensor (see picture above). You will hear two (2) short ton sounds, letting you know the sensor/transmitter is paired with the receiver. f) If you want to program another transmitter/sensor to the receiver, go back to step c) above. If you are done programming, press the program button to scroll through all the zones. After you scroll past Zone 4, you are done. 3) Make Sure You Have Fresh Batteries: Make sure you are using new, Alkaline batteries in both the transmitter and receiver.


  1. Open the cover of the receiver
  2. Hold down the "zone selector" button (the left button) for approximately 3 seconds until zone 1 starts to flash.  Stop pressing the button.  If you are deleting memory from zone 1, move to step 3.
  3. Push the left button again to scroll to the zone where you want to delete memory.  The zone number will flash.
  4. Simultaneously, hold down the zone selector button (on the left) and the melody button (on the right) for approximately 3-5 seconds until you hear a short tone sound.   The short tone sound means the memory has been deleted in that zone.
How to Put the LRA-DCRX Receiver in Program Mode
How to Put the LRA-DCRX Receiver in Program Mode


Typically there are two reasons why the sound may not be coming out of your LRA-DCRX long range receiver.

First, check the selector switch on the side of the unit. There are three modes you can set the receiver to a) strobe only, b) sound only, and c) strobe and sound. Often times when there's no sound it is because the selector switch is on sound only.

Second, check the volume control selector. Open the front cover of the receiver and locate the volume adjustment dial. Use a small screwdriver to adjust the sound level.

Take a look at this illustration to get an idea of where the selector switch is located.



The LRA-C1000 is a long range entry alert product designed for businesses, shops, warehouses, and larger homes.

The kit has two components, a transmitter/sensor (LRA-DCTX) and a receiver (LRA-PBTX).  When the sensor is triggered, it transmits a radio signal up to 1,000 ft. to the LRA-PBTX receiver.

PLEASE NOTE:  whenever a manufacturer provides you with a range, in this case, 1,000 ft., it is derived by an algorithm.  Sometimes you get a little more range, but in most cases you get less range because of interference from environmental factors.

What this means to you is that if you need exactly 1,000 ft., or very close to it, you might have to look at another product like the LH-2500 (entry alert kit with a range of 2,500 ft.)  There is also a range extender that works with our long range doorbell/alert products, the LRA-RPX.

This product, the LRA-C1000 has an additional challenge in that it is mounted on the door and the door frame.  In commercial environments that usually means a metal door and or a metal door frame.  This will cut down on the projected range of this product.

If you know you have the product programmed correctly, but it isn't working, try moving the receiver closer to the transmitter.  If it starts working, it is a range issue.  If it is a range issue, there are three things we can do:

  1. Try placing double-sided tape, a cardboard shim, or something that will provide some separation between the transmitter and the metal or concrete on the door frame.
  2. Get the LRA-RPX to extend the range up to an additional 1,000 ft.
  3. Upgrade to the LH-2500 long range doorbell entry alert kit.

If you are having problems programming the LRA-C1000, watch this quick video.

The LRA-DR1000 is a long range wireless driveway monitoring kit that consists of two pieces, the LRA-DSTX (sensor/transmitter) and the LRA-DCRX (receiver).

The transmitter has a passive infrared (PIR) sensor that will detect a combination of motion and heat and when triggered, will send a wireless signal up to 1,000 ft. to the receiver.

For programming, we have a video that walks you through pairing the driveway alarm transmitter to the receiver.
