IT WORKS WELL, BUT, OH ! THOSE CHIMES...
on 15 May 2013
Paid heed to the reviews and thought this came out best for my purposes - especially the thru-socket. I was tempted to buy one of the twin sets so as to have the chimes at both ends of the house, but then I thought, when I go to a remoter bit I can just take the chimes with me and plug in close by - big mistake... When you unplug it, the chimes reset to the default, which is an excruciating rendition of Beethoven's "Fuer elise", guaranteed to make any music lover foam at the mouth. You can run through the chimes sequentially by pressing the little button on the side - but if you have nobody to press the doorbell for you, once you've stuck it to the door you can only do this by plugging the chimer in nearest the doorbell - unless you want to keep trotting to the other end of the house. And out of all the choices, it has only one plain ding-dong, unless you count Big Ben. Fortunately. I can hear it two rooms away, so it's going back to the side of the door.
