From dunelm mill?

incide? actualy?

hopefully the next person to ring your doorbell will be someone selling a dictionary

Incide!? Oh dear.

Spelling police out in force, perhaps the next person you meet will be selling something to take up all that time you have on your hands......

I've had nothing but problems with unreliable Byron wireless doorbells over the years. I switched to a Friedland and it's never failed!

Our neighbour had a similar model which somehow appeared to be on the same frequency as our own wireless doorbell. The result was either button would activate both doorbells!. Chaos!

Oh Em Gee.
So when someone pressed one of the buttons... BOTH bells would chime, and BOTH of you would get up to answer the door?

That really is sensational.

After trying some budget doorbells and finding them useless, I decided to pay the extra for a Friedland, and guess what that was also rubbish, the bell push died after 12 months and Friedland would not replace under their 2 year guarantee. Their customer service is just shocking, but you only find this out when you get a problem. So I am still looking for a reliable manufacture of a wireless doorbell system.

I used to have a Friedland but I got fed up having to replace the batteries. I replaced the Friedland with a 100m range system that uses power sockets to power the bells. LINK I don't like the bell push but that is not an issue as I have retained my old bell push and soldered the wires to the new bell push mounted internally. It works so well I bought another set for another property.

Wonder if I can program this with my existing Byron door bell as that one has to be plugged in and would like that in front room and this one in the hall so they both ring

I think this one is better but both are good

I've just picked up one from my local Argos Extra.

Argos have the wrong description for this. They state there's only 1 melody, but there's a "hidden" button where the battery compartment is that allows you to choose from 10 melodys

That said, I've stuck with the default, the rest are too long!

And just to confirm, there's no adhesive on the door bell, so you'll have to source your own.

Collected ours tonight. The ding-dong part takes 3 AA walkman batteries, the push button part comes with it's own wee fitted battery. It comes with small screws, there's no adhesive strip but I guess you could sort that with a bit of your own DIY creativity if screws are too complex for you lol.

It's a bog standard ding-dong, it chimes twice, there's a high, low or off switch. Ours works fine, took it to the bottom of the
garden about 70 feet and it picked up the signal no problem, it caught the attention of our a neighbour too, must've looked a bit odd, me in wellies and boxers and a t-shirt, standing in the pitch black holding a doorbell lol.

Op ... Great deal, appreciated ... Cheers

edit ... Will investigate these hidden chimes mentioned above !!!

this looks good

Bell is usually £5.99 and usually made by Byron (DB301)

Even though only 1 melody (when bought from Argos) and a low range (30m), they are good value.

Amazon in stock currently (1pm, 10th Jan)



The 1st went faulty within a month of purchase (and the 2nd was returned for bad battery life)...Argos replaced both no question

The latest replacement is the same model/item - but looks "updated" eg has a black rubber seal round the doorbell button. It seems to last longer on battery too

...definitely true - even with branded batteries (Panasonic and Duracell)
...new version of same model seems better (see above)

...unfortunately this model cannot change frequency!

...comes with screws only
...but the back of the bell is quite flat (some raised text) and a sticky pad works (fixing the bell to glass)

...there's no hidden button on either of mine - just a blank space on the circuit board where the button should be
(although the Byron DB301 "manual" shows the button)
