Think hard before getting a wireless door bell. I tried several, but invariably the batteries run out and it spends long periods not working, because you don't realize the batteries are dead.

I fitted a wired bell about 5 years ago, and it's still on the original batteries.

(well, I think it's still working!)

Bought this last time it was on offer around 18 months ago and it recently gave up the ghost.

Went for a onebyone from amazon, I went for the two receiver model which plug into to wall sockets. Only the transmitter requires a battery. Excellent reviews too!

Not saying this is a bad deal but just sharing my experience.

Unless the internal electronics have been redesigned from the identical Lidl/Silvercrest model that I bought two years ago, the door 'push button' has to be initially programmed/paired to the receiving sounder unit. That pairing operation won't work properly unless the sounder unit has fresh/good batteries. Attempting to pair the two devices when the receiver has tired batteries will make the units unreliable and appear to be faulty. And I suspect (but cannot confirm) that the pairing function will be lost if the receiver batteries are removed for any length of time; obviously if that happens simply re-pair/programme the 'door button' to the sounder using fresh batteries in the sounder. I hope that helps.

Just chucked it in the bin earlier today, never mind, its replacement is in place now.

Thanks anyway.

We have had a wireless doorbell for the past 12 years I would say, and I am pretty sure it is either a Lidl or Aldi unit. I cannot remember the last time we replaced the battery in the transmitter, although the receiver is a wall pluggable unit, and perhaps that makes the world of difference.

If anything I would replace it only because the plastic of the doorbell has yellowed with age, perhaps I should have a go at retrobrighting it.

Does it play It's a small world?
