You can't beat simple technology...
on 6 June 2012
Having struggled with a useless array of wireless doorbells, which either failed to ring, randomly rung, or broke I gave up. The idea of messing with cables and drilling originally set me off down the path of using the expensive and ineffective wireless option, but in hindsight I should never have worried. Out of the box the door chime is simple to fit. You can either drill two holes and mount to the wall or, if you prefer, simple hang on a picture hook (even with the batters, it's not very heavy). Fitted in 20 minutes - and I'm a DIY novice. The bell in place it makes a simple bell ring (rings as long as the button is held in) and is loud enough to be heard through a sizeable house.
It's worth noting that this is just the chime - not the bell ring button and bell wire. You'll have to get those separately. I picked mine up from a local DIY store for a few pounds.
Overall I'd say, cheap, simple, effective, and reliable. Wired beats wireless everyday.
