Is there such a thing as a wireless doorbell that does NOT ring when the
power comes on? I have a Heath Zenith that works well except that
whenever the power comes on it rings so that if the power goes off for a
second and then comes back on at night it wakes me up. Thank you in
advance for all replies.
I give my child a substance that he absolutely LOVES.
He sniffs it, snorts it, eats it and rolls around on
Your power seems unreliable? If it goes off that frequently does it affect
Or if you have a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) for the computer connect
the receiving unit of the doorbell (I presume the unit at the door is dry
battery operated to avoid wiring?) to that source of AC! Then it won't have
to reset when power comes back on.
However having to get up and check around after an extensive power outage
may be good insurance?
Power outages are infrequent here despite winter storms etc. however we have
two UPS for our three computers, powered by second-hand truck batteries. We
also have a couple of emergency lights wired off the truck batteries just in
case someone, say a young person, gets caught in the bathroom (no windows)
if power goes off. Idea anyway.
I have one labeled "DIMANGO by Lamson home products" that is silent when
power comes on. It was the cheapest one I could find. Single tone. One door
I once had a heath/zenith wireless lamp switch that did that. It came on at
every power drop out. It quickly got thrown in the trash. as did the Vtech
telephone that beeped during power failures. I also have a grudge against
UPS' that beep during power outages (seems to be all of them). For heavens
sake, I know I am having a power failure. Why does every appliance I have
have to shout it out? DId I mention the CO detector beeps on power drops
too? Oh dear...now I'm all worked up.....can't sleep....the incessant
Our wireless doorbell has a receiver/chime which is also battery operated.
Obviously, it doesn't ring when the power goes off/comes back on. Battery
life has been good. It's been install over two years and the original
battery still works.
Mine is made by Heath Co. Picked it up at Lowes. I think it
has been 3 years now and it only chimes when the outside
button is pressed. We get power interruptions.
