When you have a wired doorbell in your home that you just can’t hear in other rooms, or when your current wired doorbell isn’t loud enough, the Carlon RC3500D may be the solution you are seeking.
This is called a doorbell extender or “extend a chime” by Carlon/Dimango. The product works when the included transmitter is wired into your existing wired doorbell transformer. When a visitor presses the button outside, the wireless transmitter sends a signal to the receiver that is included in the kit.
Simply wire the small transmitter into your existing doorbell transmitter by following the easy to follow instructions. Then make sure you have batteries in the included receiver/speaker and you have successfully extending your chime.
The solution works great in situations where wiring a new doorbell is out of the question or for the hard of hearing.
- The receiver runs on 4 C-size alkaline batteries
- The receiver may be mounted horizontally or vertically
- Volume control on receiver
- Plays six different tunes, selected on the transmitter
- Plug-in model (RC3253) also available
- 1 year manufacturer’s warranty
- Water resistant so it may be mounted outdoors
This unit gives you additional flexibility not traditionally offered with other doorbell units.

This is an excellent extender , I have found it very useful so much in fact that my neibhour heard heard me talking about it and he was so impressed he is now going to order one also.
I agree with the other comments; it works very well and was simple to install. We wanted it for the patio. The outdoor unit is described as “outdoor rated” and “water resistant,” but I think we’ll just bring it outside with us when we sit on the patio (three or four times a week May-September). It would mount on a wall outside via screws if desired; there are slots in the rear. If I were to do that I’d probably also attach a short sheet of flexible rubber or plastic a couple of inches above it, overhanging the front to shed rain. And the unit could easily be popped off the mounting screws when rain is forecast, and during the off-season.
Re the comments about loudness, there's a volume control on the back. Mine was set on High when it arrived; I eventually moved it to Low.
Glad you liked the product. Please let us know if we can be of assistance!
Very easy to install. Plenty loud. 6 different sounds. Portable. I have mine 75 feet from the main door bell. Works great.
I needed a front doorbell ringer that we could hear in a basement den. This item was easy to install and does a good job. If you have the same problem, you can't go wrong with this solution.
