Disagree. Installing a doorbell in an existing building can easily
result in untidy wiring, We have an existing wired doorbell installed
in the house when newly built 20yrs ago in the hallway by the front

would have been difficult to wire in. A wirless doorbell extender was
the answer with the advantage of being able to tale the receiver(battery
powered) into the garden when working outside.

However, wireless doorbells have a downside - the sound is always the
same no matter how long or short the button press is, so you can't

I fitted one of those once, it rang fairly randomly - I'm guessing it
wasn't smart enough to tell that the various other radio tech we have
wasn't talking to it. Took it back for a refund after a couple of

I can sort of see the point of this - my key ring is quite full, and it
dangles from the steering column in an occasionally intrusive manner.

Ho yus, my wife once set off on a two hour trip without the key fob because some idiot had it in his trouser pocket. Luckily said idiot discovered said fob within a few minutes and was able to phone her and get her to come back.
