Customer Questions & Answers

why batteries

Batteries will go bad. Why? unit that connects to existing doorbell shoud be able to power transmitter from that. Receiver plugs into wall, right?
Asked by: Carey
You are correct and that would be possible. Perhaps the engineers chose battery power so the unit could be used with more types of doorbells such and battery powered wireless chimes. Today's batteries last a very long time, however when they do go dead the extender will fail. You may not know it failed for awhile unless you detect the main chime sound while you are close to the extended chime.

Can I use this extender with a two doorbell wireless chime kit?

Asked by: Venus
The extender is mounted on the existing chime and picks up the sound acoustically, and transmits a wireless signal to the extended wireless chime. It should work fine with one caveat. It's possible the two wireless transmitters could be on the same channel and interfere or the signal from the extender may possibly retrigger the original wireless chime causing a sort of feedback effect. Chances are very good everything will work fine but I would preserve all packing, docs, etc. in case it doesn't and you need to return the extender to the store.

Currently have a wired system

Will this wireless plug in work with a wired system?
Asked by: Mark
Definitely YES. Works great in our two story home. Place extender pickup on top or near original chime. When original doorbell chimes, the acoustic pickup of the extender picks up the sound acoustically which triggers it's wireless transmitter to signal the remote chime to sound.

Wireless Plug-In Remote Door Chime Extender Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picks picks up vibrations I have installed other extenders for my parents that they rely on. Those have been wired into the main bell box. This one relies on vibrations. Unfortunately our bell is mounted directly over the much used door into our garage. With this unit every time someone goes into the garage, the bell sounds. I have adjusted the sensitivity as low as it will go and I still have the problem. I also tried placing the unit in close proximity with the sensitivity turned to max. It no longer rings with the door closing but it doesn't ring when the bell is rung either. This seems like a decent product, but not a good fix for my situation. I will be returning it and searching for a model similar to others I have worked it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product & Easy To Use! I recommend this to everyone who wishes they had installed more than one doorbell chime in their home. It is great for places in your home where you can't hear the doorbell, or for outside in back of your home. There is no wiring just follow instructions and plug in. We use for when we are in back of our home. Just plug it in while outside and bring it back inside when done. My only complaint is this is not sold in all Home Depot Stores. I had bought my first one at the Gig Harbor, WA store, but the store in Oklahoma didn't carry it. Had to buy it online. I know lots of people who wish they had installed an outdoor chime and know they would buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from note for using multiple extenders This works great! The only thing I would like to note is that if you want to use several in your house (we have one for the basement and one for the upstairs), they all operate on the same frequency, which doesn't seem to be something that the user can adjust. So whichever one is slightly closer to the door chime will pick up the signal first, and the other will remain silent. The solution I found for this was to set them up like a chain, by putting the second extender's sensor next to the first extender's chime, so the main chime sets off the first extender, which in turn sets off the second extender. Worked like a charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well This unit does its job perfectly. All you have to do is stick the transmitter up next to your existing door chime and it "hears" the doorbell ring and repeats it. However, I wanted a strobe light as well as the extra loud chime. So I combined this with their wireless doorbell of the same brand that has a strobe unit. It turns out the transmitter from this unit and the receiver from that unit are compatible and work fine together. That meant I had to buy two units to get the one I wanted, though. I wish they packaged the strobe unit with the chime extender kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally I can hear the doorbell Bought house where the front door is in the addition which is separated from the house by the old exterior cement block wall. Have been through 3 wireless doorbells but had to keep the ringer in the addition and I could not hear it from living room. This finally solved the problem. Since it comes with its own ringer, I now have a ringer at each end of the house. You may have to experiment with placement, but I could not be happier. You simply attach one part to your original ringer, then plug in the second ringer wherever you want it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best purchase for my use Installation was easy and only took a few minutes. Can hear the door bell all over the house now and can even plug in on my patio and hear it when I'm out back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fix ! I needed a doorbell to ring in my back yard. This product is excellent. It Amplifies my house door bell, and plenty loud enough to hear. So when a visitor comes and rings my front doorbell, this unit relays to back yard unit and chimes. Love It !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tougher set-up than expected; works just fine It was a bit tougher to set up than I expected (had to find the sensitivity level to pick up my house's doorbell), but it's work just fine ever since.
