Answer: 
If you mean that the sender is mounted next to the receiver. NOT a good idea, the unit will never quit sounding. My question is: what is activating the sender? The device package is designed to be used with an existing primary door bell. The receiver needs to be in another room; presumably where one cannot hear the primary door bell/chime.

You can try moving it extender a little further away for the original door bell or you can also try and set the sensitivity to a lower threshold.

I have three RECEIVERS spread around my property with only one transmitter (sender) unit next to my primary doorbell. These devices use a jumper code in order to operate; each device must have the same code or the ringer will not function.

Answer: 
Yes. Use only one transmitter first, and test both remote bells with it to see if both work okay. If it doesn't and only one works, then you can just place both transmitters next to the current doorbell ringer. Therefore, both bells will work.

Answer: 
You can, but I suggest you get 1 of the DL-6157 kits that has the extender and plug-in doorbell, and then get additional DL-6196 model plug-in doorbells to put in other locations. When the current doorbell rings, the extender device "hears" that and then sends a wireless signal to the other doorbells you put around the house. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I guess that is possible. It actually would depend on the frequencies of the telephones. I have six cordless telephones, with two different brands, and a cell phone. Have NEVER had an interference problem there, or with other remote control devices such as the Television Remotes, DVD/Blu-Ray players or remote controlled ceiling fans.

The doorbell has nothing to do with your wireless phones and the extender transmitter sends an RF signal ONLY when someone presses the button and rings the doorbell. I suggest you check the wireless phones base to ensure it is operating correctly. Good luck!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solves a long-standing problem beautifully! I had tried several wireless doorbells before I found this door chime extender. They all worked, but my condo is very long, and the in-between walls stopped the signal, so I only had an audible chime in the closer rooms. I used two of the (compatible) door chimes in two other areas and the wireless signal that the extender generated rang both of them. Wow! A great product. December 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as advertised I was able to receive the signal from this extender through two brick walls of my church which now activates two Zenith wireless door bells. October 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ding Dong This unit is great! Works well. We were missing people at the door because we couldn't hear our original doorbell in the other part of the house. I bought this add on and I am so happy with it. Told my friend about it and he bought one too. He loves it!! Well worth the money, and easy to install. October 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product The sensor used by your chime is sound activated, so when a sound other than the chime is heard it WILL go off. But It it does the job. July 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems to work fine. The chime is plenty loud even when turned all the way down. Placement of the transmitter is critical; I stuck mine to the top of the existing chime, but it wouldn't recognize the single back-door bell until I turned it end-for-end (the microphone is at one end of the transmitter unit). I may still have to tweak the sensitivity adjustment. My transmitter is in the 1st floor hallway and the chime unit is in the basement. No problem with reception. One disappointment: The instructions say you can set different chime tones for front and back doors but it doesn't say HOW to do that. I think this is a carry-over from the instructions for a wired doorbell set. You CAN choose from three different chime tones, but not a different tone for different doors. The transmitter doesn't know whether it hears one bell or two; other reviewers have said that any loud noise can trigger it. June 5, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WIRELESS PLUG-IN DOOR CHIME AND BATTERY-OPERATED DOOR CHIME EXTENDER It's a hit or miss sometimes. Not always consistent. Maybe it would be more consistent if the sensor has an option to directly connect to the doorbell unit but there is no instruction that you can do so. I do however like that you have 2 choices on the sound. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great device Thus doorbell extender is both easy to install and easy to use. I definitely recommend it. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Door Chime Extender - IT REALLY WORKS! My computer room is in the rear of our house. Because of the distance and the other noise in my room, I was never able to hear the chimes when someone rand the front door chime. After months of criticism, I started looking for a WIRELESS extender. I read about this extender, when to one of our local Home Depots and purchased it. The installation is easy and a no-brainer and IT REALLY WORKS! November 28, 2014
