With so many on the market to choose from, which wireless doorbell is a question you may well ask yourself. And when looking to buy one, you probably want to decide on the styling and construction before making you final choice. These are also important factors that will influence your final decision.
If the look of your house is more in a period styling, you would most likely want to consider an old fashioned wireless doorbell. Or maybe even a antique model. Blending in with the fascia of your house to give a more consistent look is always desirable.This helps to avoid something that stands out like a sore thumb.
A traditional style wireless doorbell like the Byron will fit the bill with its chrome bell push button set on a naturally styled oak plinth. It contains a wireless extender which pairs up to a brass bell push. Thus giving a completely wireless connection that gets sent around the house when someone presses the doorbell.
What is the doorbell range?
The wireless doorbell range is one hundred meters which should be way beyond what most houses will require. And just to make it that little bit more authentic, you get a choice of eight melodies such as St. Clemens. A nice touch to complete the old fashioned period feel for a antique wireless doorbell.
Wireless doorbell with a light.
If you’re going for a more modern look then there are also many options to suit your requirements. For example if your house or flat is situated in an area where it is quite dark a lot of the time, then a wireless doorbell with light would be a great option. This will make it more visible to visitors or trades people.
A flashing or illuminated light will also be a great help to those who are partially sighted. Furthermore your front door may be exposed to the elements. If so a waterproof doorbell button is a must to prevent malfunction in the event of heavy rain. No point in having a doorbell that doesn’t work!
Most if not all of these models have a more than adequate range. Some even up to 300 meters which is a huge distance and highly unlikely you would ever need more. However should you find that the signal is not reaching certain parts of your house, then look into getting a wireless doorbell extender which will help boost the signal.
How durable is the doorbell
The construction of the doorbell is also important for durability and longevity. A metal wireless doorbell will likely prove to be more sturdy and last longer. However many of the current models are made of a very strong plastic and are suitably well built so it shouldn’t really be an issue for you when making your choice.
Without wishing to state the obvious, if you can’t hear the doorbell then it is not much use to you. So many will no doubt consider what is the loudest wireless doorbell before deciding which one to buy.
On a number of models you get four adjustable levels of volume from 25 to 85 decibels. This should be plenty loud enough for most folk. An option if that is still not audible enough is to have two receivers in the house. Then one can be suitably placed to enable it to be heard at all times in all areas. There are also a large selection of ring tones to try out in order to determine which is the easiest to hear. It has a memory function for the sounds and chimes.
A very neat little feature on some models is that you can switch the sound off and just have a visual flashing light indicator. This is particularly useful if you were watching a movie or your child or partner was trying to sleep.
So as you can see there are some great options to find the best wireless doorbell kit with all the bells and whistles (or chimes J) that you like and you should never now not answer the door to that important visitor.
