Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ladykristien Too Quiet
My husband and I were researching ways to enhance the sound put out by a doorbell for someone who sometimes has trouble hearing her doorbell from certain areas of the house. This extender was recommended for this purpose. We set it up according to the instructions, but even at the highest volume setting, the extender was really quiet - in fact, though it was sitting less than 10' from us, with nothing in front of it to obstruct the sound, the doorbell sounded louder from the other room than the extender sounded. We will be returning it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tomM Completely Useless/Unreliable Product
This product has been a complete source of frustration/let down.. It works maybe 1 out of 5 times, even with super fresh batteries.. If I have the base within about 15 to 20 feet of the transmitter, it works better, but that configuration is completely useless. The whole point is it is supposed to be able to transmit the signal so it can ring in another part of our house.. My home is small (~1500 square feet).. I'm hoping to send the signal from the center part of our house (where the main chime is) to about 50 feet away.. It's almost clear line of sight to get there, and as mentioned above, works 1 out of 5 times at best, basically making this system very unreliable.
Unfortunately, it's going to end up in a landfill because I'm going to have to replace this with either a wired extender or no extender at all.
Do not waste your money on this product..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by phc1 You can program two or more chimes to the same buttons
Although it isn't documented, you can program two or more WD-2041A or WD-2044A chimes to the same front and backdoor buttons. I needed to do this since these units aren't extremely loud and I needed a second chime in the second level of my house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skip We can now hear the door bell through out the house.
The door chime is simple to use. Just plug it in.
It is loud enough to hear through out the house.
Shipping was fine it was delivered to our door.
