Rated 3 out of 5Â by aandersonelp So far unit works as advertised
Purchased this unit 12/14/13, Installed same day in approximately 30 minutes (wired installation). In the box this doorbell looks really nice, installed it's fairly cheap looking plastic, but still looked better than the doorbell I replaced. During my first test I did get the install cover message, reinstalled and have had no problems. (The cover key must fit directly into the base slot to press the cover button.) Attaching the diode was straight forward, easy and I was able to make it work with a 5/8 drilled hole. At a cost of 59 dollars plus 10 dollars for the ringer, I did expect a better quality product, more melody and ring selections, and a cover that looks a little better than cheap plastic.
I will keep this unit because it does work and its looks far better than what I had. With a little frosted glass transparent spray paint on the plastic cover you can do what Heath Zenith should of done in production.
Pros: Easy Installation, Adjustable Volume, Wireless Capability, Nice Design
Cons: Cover looks like cheap plastic, Cover must be removed to adjust the volume or change tones, Limited rings and melodies.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Henry Extremely poor product
Extremely disappointing!! This product has never worked correctly. I've been working on houses for over 20 years, so it's not as if I haven't installed this kind of thing before. I bought the recommended wireless push buttons for it. It worked off and on for a few days, now nothing works. Maybe if your system is wired it will work ok, but if you're looking for a wireless setup, I wouldn't buy it. I'll be out purchasing yet another kind soon. What a colossal waste of money!

As discovered by the previous consumers this product simply does not function properly. Waste of time, on the way to HD to return...should've checked the reviews first

It looks beautiful, but never really worked correctly. The inside mechanism kept sliding down so that the connection was lost. I kept taping and shimmying with blocks but it finally just died. I replaced the batteries, but it never came back on.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Chris Home Depot get rid of this product
I had hoped that the "install cover "issue many others had pointed out might be just a fluke, but after purchasing 2 with the same problem I'm convinced this product is fundamentally defective. I've tried to rig the unit such that the sensor for the cover get depressed, to no avail. Do not purchase this product. Very frustrating.
