Trouble hearing the existing wired door chime in areas throughout your home?
This is a common problem with wired doorbells, in that they are typically not loud enough to hear in every part of the house. We have a solution!
The LRA-EX1000 is a wired door chime extender KIT that transmits a wireless signal to chime receivers you can locate throughout your home. When your existing push button outside is pressed, your door chime will ring as normal, and this product will simultaneously trigger the receiver to play a chime, flash an LED strobe light, or chime/strobe together. Add multiple receivers throughout your home, and extend your doorbell chime to the basement, garage, or bedroom.
Here’s an example. You have an existing wired door chime hanging in your foyer. You can hear it well in the family room, but upstairs in your bedroom, or down in the basement, it just isn’t loud enough to hear. With this product, you can place a receiver in your bedroom and one in the basement. Not only does your existing wired chime play it’s chime sound when a visitor pushes the outside button, but the chime receivers in your basement and bedroom will now also play the melody you select.
Do I need to Hire an Electrician to Install the Product?
No. The connection of the extender transmitter into your existing wired doorbell is easy and straightforward. Most wired doorbells have an outer chime cabinet and when this cover is removed you will notice the mechanical “guts” of your existing wired doorbell. You will then notice what’s called the “terminal strip” with three screws (a typical wired doorbell setup). One of the screws is labeled “Front” (for front doorbell button), another screw labeled “Trans” (for transformer) and the last is labeled “Back” (for back doorbell button). Each wire on the extender will wire into one of the screws. The extender transmitter will then lay inside of your doorbell or on top of it.

Here’s how it works!
The kit consists of two different products, the LRA-EXTX wireless door chime extender and the LRA-DCRX wireless door chime receiver. The LRA-EXTX is a small, battery operated transmitter that wires into your existing door chime (follow included instructions). When your door chime is triggered (by pushing front doorbell button) this device will generate a wireless signal and send it to the LRA-DCRX receiver.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Fairly easy to install. Good selection of sounds to choose from. Box with receiver did not have double sided stick tape on small piece. Only for larger sensor. Not sure why it was not packaged as additional sensor was. We will hope this works for alerting us when mom opens a door up at night. Receiver loud enough and flashing light will hopefully wake our family member who is in the home. It took one week to receive .
I ordered a door bell and it was in my mailbox in less than a week, standard shipping. A reply to my web order was prompt and accurate. I have already ordered a second unit from this company.
I’ve been using this driveway sensor for years and it is very good and dependable.
As we age, we sometimes don’t hear people knocking when deliveries are made, partly because we don’t hear as well as we used to. Ordinary wireless doorbells were tried, but they were insufficiently loud. The 1800 bell for the hearing impaired is louder, and useful. But I think a second such bell that rings in rooms distant to its present location would be better, especially if both bells ring after any push button is activated. EGH
I added the LRA-DCRXS receiver to the existing Safeguard Doorbell Extender EX1000S. It configured quickly and operated as expected. Now two receivers are activated when the doorbell is initiated. It's load and the flashing light gets your attention - as it should.
