Door alarms were all £30+ in B&Q when we were looking last week, (we need a new one)

In my experience these never work correctly or intermittently! Most if not all wireless Bell's instructions always recommend not installing the Bell push on to a upvc door or frame as they usually have some type of metal inside upvc that interferes with wireless radio signal so intermittently interrupting wireless radio signal. So either Bell doesn't work or you have Bell malfunctioning sounding off when you go to door no one's there!

We've got one on a upvc door and it's fine. Saying that we don't really get any visitors now which is weird as we used to get loads before we got the new doorbell.

Really depends on the type of doorbell. I've had one for 2 years now which was purchased based on Amazon reviews, going great so far on the front UPVC door. Been ultra reliable and has needed only one battery change so far. To keep things simple I got one with a plug-in receiver which means you only need to keep track of one battery to change.

Have had one of these, they don't work very well, battery life is poor. Wired is the way,IMHO

Does anybody know if they would work effectively with a house divided into two flats? I don't want to be answering my neighbour's callers and vice versa!

That made me smile

Also found this to intermittently not work (wooden door, reciever can see the button through the window).
The reciever is also not very compact, an odd shape, so can't be hidden that easily.

Cold, this is standard price at my local electronics store

When the bell goes off and there is no one there, this happens a lot when someone else is on the same channel as you . and in range of your door bell .

I love this review on Amazon:

"ByBrendaon 2 December 2011
This is my third door bell this year but still cannot get one I trust, this one rings some times and then on a whim doesn't respond. Going to get a new front door with a knocker!!"



Oh God it gets better:

"ByKiranon 15 June 2015

Absolutely terrible product. Worked for approx 2 months before no longer responding to my own door bell but now responding to somebody else's. The bell works for someone else's house but only for me to hear. What utter nonsense. Oh and no way to change the frequency"

In our street a lot of the people bought similar doorbells from the same catalogue, everytime somebody visited anyone, the bell would ring somewhere else. It went on for months before they realised they were all on the same frequency

Same problems here. Seemed to go intermittently until we worked out the neighbours was interfering with our bell.

​is just the neighbours kids pulling a fast one...

This looks like one we used to have and the wife used to switch the chime to Christmas music in December which resulted in the doorbell failing suddenly never to work again if you know what I mean!

I prefer the plug-in ones with a pass-thru plug socket, so it doesn't use up the plug socket.

If you bought two could you pair then to same bell button and put the receivers in two different places in a house?

Personally I prefer the MP3 doorbell I bought a while back. Slot in a cheap SD card with MP3s on it and you can play any tune you like. I have two samples from Anita Ward's "Ring My Bell", a countdown from 10 secs, a standard chime bell, a "happy birthday to you" chime and "hallelujah" sung by a choir (for Amazon parcel deliveries of course).

yeah we looked at them but couldnt fine one that was in price range of under a tenner and had same functions and looks of the one we got.

One coming in Lidl on the 20th for £6.99 dont know if its any good Lidl

When we got our new front door, some two years ago, 'im indoors decided that he wanted a chrome door bell to match the fittings. We couldn't find one that we liked (or could afford!) and somehow time drifted on and we went without.

It's interesting because there is a knocker displayed clearly, but some people insist on banging on the glass - please don't do that! - whilst others do a tiny rat-a-tat on the knocker which is barely audible.
