My doorbell packed in a few days ago and was looking for a replacement on ebay. Found similar ones to this and they were £100+ no doubt they had more functions etc. but this is a steal if all you want is a doorbell that allows you to see who's pressing the bell. It also has a small sd card built in which saves the mugshot of everybody who pressed the bell. Great if you have pesky kids who pay press and run! The card saves up to 1000 pictures. It only took me 10 minutes to fit as I already have a peep hole fitted to my door and this just fitted in its place. Was £24.99 now down to £19.99 I believe this is a national deal.

Hot from me! My door bells just packed in too & as a childminder being able to see who's at the door before you open it is definatly an extra safety precaution. You can never be to careful. Thanks

if you run a dodgy business from your home this would be handy,as would a Doberman,a minder,a cudgel and a bad attitude as well as lots of leather clothing......

or it may be handy for oaps who have trouble squinting through a tiny peephole...just a thought.

Great price, sounds great for my dad who's in a wheelchair.

if for a wheelchair user perhaps one that connects to TV might be better?

Cool idea, very useful and at a low price so voted hot.
Thanks OP - don't be put off by trolls on here !

A bit of missing the point here I reckon. Burglars have a habit of ringing the doorbell first to check there's nobody in. Get burgled while you're out and this handy thing might just give the police a nice mugshot of the culprit.

is this hard wired or does it use batteries?

That's a brilliant solution to a problem that doesn't exist. I've never needed to answer the door when I'm not actually there.

So you answer the door and a delivery driver says hi can you sign for this, and you say er no I'm not here. Very useful.

Might be useful to annoy TV licence people or Jehovah's witnesses, I'd get bored quickly though.

I don't think you can talk through it, the good thing is you can see who's at your door from indoors.

batteries, there's a description on the thread

Wow ! I posted this as rossl1986 said on the off chance that it may benefit somebody else who is in the market for such a gizmo ! The comments about the children were very much 'tongue in cheek' and I am fully CRB certified ! I bought this after seeing the price of similar systems on ebay for £100+ and thought it was a good buy - if you don't think so then please feel free to jog on - if you have benefited from this post then you're welcome - simples !

There are many con artists operating and this gives visual proof if you needed evidence or to show to the police afterwards. I bought it because I thought it benefited my wife to see who was at the door before she decided whether to open it or not (looking through the peephole is not good and I have perfect eyesight !)

Just to answer a few questions - it is simple to fit but if you don't have a peep hole then you need to drill a hole through your door (thank god I didn't have to as we have a steel security door !)

The whole process is simple in that you place the bell (double sided tape provided) on the outside and feed the ribbon through the hole. You connect the ribbon to the main unit which sits over the hole (on top of a mounting plate again stuck on by tape). The unit uses 2 x AA batteries (supplied) and I'm guessing the bell gets fed through the unit as there are no other batteries. All in all, 10 minutes to fit. It works great during the day but not tried at night and guess would need a light source as it doesn't have infra red (no problem for me as I have an auto night light 20cm next to the dorrbell). £20 for this is a brilliant price - I THINK. If anybody else thinks so too then great but if you don't see the point/don't like the colour/hate my post because it's Friday or whatever then get a life and move on ... !

But equally the person who posted the deal was of the opinion that this is a good deal. They were also of the opinion that other people might also wish to purchase this item. He doesn't need a lecture on the evils of technology. If you don't see the point then don't buy it and vote it cold.



Succinctly and aptly pointed out...NOTHING MORE TO ADD

When doors this go on sale? Is it random by store?

Thanks for the reminder, nobody need ring the bell, you can switch the monitor on and see who's at the door before they've even pressed the bell. You can also take their picture too, though this is automatic once they've pressed the bell. Greät irony though and in keeping with your username!

Mods can you please change direct link to aldi.co.uk/en/…er/

pretty please?

Great spot so it was £39.99 originally and now ony £19.99 WOW even more of a bargain - because it's advertised as that online then it has to be National - good luck for those who want one. Oh one last thing, it's covered by a 3 year warranty (my last doorbell cost this much and lasted just 12 months)

Is the ribbon the same length as on website?

??? doesn't mention length of cable on website ? My door is about an inch thick and I had to fold the ribbon twice to tuck away so would say length of ribbon cable is about 2.5" - 3" long.

This was my first thought too, I wouldn't want something that costs £160 on the door that you could quickly unscrew off. I'm sure they won't last long.

Great - well spotted but unable to vouch for how good it works at night as nobody called round last night ! Works great in the daytime though ! Billy bonus if it works in the dark !

Thanks OP, just what I needed.

At least you'll have a picture of who nicked it lol ! It's like the ip connected cameras where you can see the thieving scum ransack your house and see how they turn over a house in a matter of minutes! Hopefully it will be like this one whereby the doorbell is screwed via a brass tube to the montitor on the other side of the door, the only way to steal it would be to prise it off the door thus damaging it. You can't legislate for everything ...

Trust me the ribbon is too long ! I ended up having to fold it twice to stay in the hole so that I can place the monitor over it ! The picture is misleading as it doesn't actually show the ribbon once setup. There is no harm in buying it first and if it doesn't look like it would fit (i.e. you have a 4" thick door) you can always take back for a refund ? Gosh sounds like I am on commision or something !

I have absolutely no idea what the reviewer was talking about and only gave it one star - I'm guessing he couldn't follow simple instructions !
