I put the button on the stucco wall using the double stick foam tape that was included in the package. I put the doorbell on a bookshelf across the living room from the front door. I especially like that the doorbell is portable, so I can move it to the patio, or another room when I expect company. This also has a pretty loud volume, which can be adjusted.
Really great doorbell. lights, tones and look of the item...

Really great doorbell. lights, tones and look of the item are all appealing. We keep it stationary, but I like that I can take it with me to the back yard in the Summer. Only potential issue is mounting plate for the button. Its not rigid enough to stay straight on an uneven surface (think stone). If it doesn't mount flush then there is enough room for water to seep in behind the button. To handle this, I had to screw the mounting plate to another stronger metal plate. Probably not a problem in most instances, but required a little trouble shooting on my part, so it is worth mentioning.
This doorbell is very easy to use. I was surprised with the quality of sound considering how small it is. The volume can adjust to get very loud and you have the option of muting and using only the lights as indicators. You can choose between several tones, some traditional and some more musical. Mounting the doorbell is very easy. You can choose to mount with screws or the provided double-sided tape. My only gripe is the speaker for the doorbell does not include batteries.
Pros: Easy Installation, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright
I’ve had a problem with deliveries not being able to get my attention. Now all they have to do is push this button and it notifies me of their presence. Working in my shop I don’t always here the dogs baking. If I’m wearing my ear protection and running my saws I don’t hear anything. With Honeywell’s wireless portable doorbell flashing lights problem solved. Selectable light sequence, 7 color strobe halo, 6 different tunes to choose from and volume control this is the perfect alert system. From the gate to my shop is 220 feet this worked flawlessly at that distance, the range is said to be 350 feet. Compact, stylish and potable easily mounts anywhere with mounting brackets included. Batteries included for the push button but not for the speaker. You need 3 AAA batteries to activate the receiver speaker box. Don’t hear so well or you don’t want to disturb a sleeping baby the flashing light will get you attention. Keep it with you through out the house, in the garage or even in the basement. You never know when opportunity will ring your doorbell.

Series 5: Wireless Portable Doorbell with Halo Light and Push Button
This is a great buy. We love our portable doorbell. The look is great. And to be able to take it in the backyard while the kids are playing is the best option ever. We are very happy with the look the sound and all the options that it has. The different sounds and the lights that flash are great we picked purple. The installation was very easy. All it took was a screwdriver in about 10 minutes We are so glad we got this doorbell. Can't wait to hook up our second pushbutton for the side door.

Personally I am not hearing impaired but I think it's fantastic Honeywell made a wireless doorbell for a person that may not be able to hear well or not hear at all.
The option to turn the compact design to mute and yet display beautiful color surrounding the entire portable system is convenient
Homeywell's portable wireless system offers the option to change colors as well as adjust the amount of desired light, Halo or light around sections or the entire system allows one to know someone is ringing the door bell providing light opposed to sound.
There are times of the year I spend more time outdoors then indoors, this will be the time I take the Honeywell Compact system to the backyard with me and choose one of 6 different doorbell ringing options (preferably the saxophone type of ring) which then the system is needed to be turned on and the sound adjusted.
indoors I prefer the doorbell to be muted and rely on the color display to allow me to know someone is ringing the doorbell.
The system will flash yellow when batteries are low. The system requires a battery for the button which is included with the purchase but the doorbell itself needs 3 AA batteries which you will have to purchase separately
instructions and installations are very clear and easy to understand .
I have learned by reading the instructions Honeywell's Portable doorbell allows you to add other devices to the Honeywell system, up to 4 window and door sensors, a great concept and something I certainly will have to look into further, an option I would choose to have the system turned up and used for security during the evening hours warning me of intruders.
I would definitely recommend this doorbell to family and friends especially for someone with elderly parents or someone with a newborn that would prefer the sound of a doorbell not waking their baby. I'm excited to also learn of the other options I am able to connect to the Honeywell Portable unit.

Love this portable wireless doorbell. It takes three alkaline batteries in the doorbell (which will last up to two years and one pancake battery (CR2032) in the push button, which will last up to 2 years, with a low battery notification. Very easy set up, there are 6 tunes to choose from and 7 alert flashing colors to choose from. This unit works 350 feet from the push door bell button and can virtually be put in any room' and even take outside from you.
