INSTALL A WIRELESS DOORBELL IN JUST MINUTES!
Guess what? Doorbell installation just got a whole lot easier thanks to technology. You can have a new one installed in no time. And it's not an expensive investment. That's a win-win update!
4 REASONS TO BUY A WIRELESS DOORBELL
1. NO PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION NEEDED!
These doorbells are very easy to install and require no electrician. They are wall mount with strong outdoor tape or adhesive.
Prep the wall by washing and cleaning it thoroughly and finish with rubbing alcohol.
To install, use an outdoor double-sided adhesive. It’s important to make sure the adhesive is outdoor safe like Scotch Permanent Outdoor Tape.
Choose a central location for your inside unit where you can hear it in most rooms in the house. It doesn’t have to be wall mounted. You can move it around as needed.
2. LESS THAN $50 COST
Like anything, you get what you pay for. Believe it or not you can get a very good wireless doorbell for under $50. The less expensive models come with holiday-themed soundcards. But it’s worth the extra dollars to buy one that is programmed so you can download your own music.
3. PERSONALIZE WITH YOUR OWN MUSIC
The best reason to try a wireless doorbell? Because it’s fun and you can customize the music for every season, occasion and mood! It's a final touch to your front door decorating theme so pick songs for seasons, holidays and special occasions. Having a bridal shower? Play the wedding march! Hosting a birthday? “Happy Birthday” is a must! The possibilities are endless.
4. VOLUME CONTROL
Adjustable volume controls also let you put it on sleep mode or mute. Just think how nice that would be if there's somebody (or a baby!) sleeping in the house.
There are several options on the market today. Our favorite is the Honeywell Series 9 Wireless Doorbell. It has all the bells and whistles you need…for under $50.

- 7 illuminated halo and LED strobe alerts
- Up to 450-ft. range
- 8 chimes included
