What Is a Doorbell Extender?

Do you have a wired doorbell you simply cannot hear in other rooms of your home? Or maybe your hearing has diminished and you are having problems hearing your door chime or door bell in other parts of your home. A doorbell extender or wireless doorbell extender will solve this problem for you.

Sometimes referred to as a wired doorbell extender, they extend the listening range of your EXISTING wired chime or wired doorbell, or other traditional doorbells through the use of a wireless door chime extender, transmitter, that will communicate with battery operated doorbells or plugin door chimes you place throughout your home or office.

This almost creates a doorbell remote by adding wireless door chime extenders in other rooms in your home by using wireless doorbell ringers, both plugin and battery operated versions, in other rooms of your home.

Which Door Chime Extender Do I Choose?

With different wireless doorbell extenders and door chime relay extenders to choose from, which one is best for me? Virtually all the models below operated the same way. The range or the chime extender, the type of receiver (plugin or battery), along with some other features such as chime volume control, flashing strobe light, and expandability are the main differences.
