Essential Info

Now you'll never miss an important visitor because you can't hear the doorbell! The Plug-In Extend-A-Chime expands an existing wired doorbell to be heard in any part of the home. The transmitter connects onto the low-voltage screws in the existing doorbell. Plug the doorbell receiver into any 110V electrical outlet. Hear the doorbell in all parts of the home-basement, second floor, or the attic.

The Plug-In Extend-A-Chime works with nearly all doorbell circuits but may not be compatible with some systems (i.e. systems with a lighted push-button, that play a melody from the chimes, or that have a diode in the circuit). The Plug-In Extend-A-Chime only sounds 6 chimes when installed for the front door. When installed for the back door, the model simply sounds a "dong." The transmitter on the Extend-A-Chime is powered from the doorbell's existing voltage. The module's 2 1/4" speaker provides excellent sound. Other features include adjustable volume control, 32 changeable codes to prevent interference, and an operating range of up to 150 feet. For larger and multi-level houses, you may need additional chime modules, sold separately.

The Plug-In Extend-A-Chime plays six selectable chime sounds:
  • Ding Dong

  • Dong

  • Westminster Chime

  • The 12 Days of Christmas

  • Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here

  • My Country 'Tis of Thee

    JAMES -- garnet valley, PA   10/7/2013
    Installation is fairly easy as long as you have easy access to your existing doorbell as the transmitter is wired into your doorbell's circuitry. My only complaint is that the maximum volume could be louder.
    RON -- louisville, KY   10/4/2013
    Works great. My mother-in-law has limited hearing. She can now hear the doorbell from her TV room with no problem.
    ROBERT -- fort lauderdale, FL   10/2/2013
    Works great! Easy installation!
    ED -- lawrenceville, NJ   9/13/2013
    does not work unless doorbell button is held down for a second or so. The typical quick press and release of the doorbell button does not activate it.
    ZOLTAN -- arlington, TX   7/27/2013
    Works as advertised.
    JOHN -- allison park, PA   7/27/2013
    Great product and great service. I am not aware of anything better that is available. Product would be improved if the volume of the ring could be adjusted to be louder.
    VINAY -- moseley, VA   6/20/2013
    working with any issues. Installation was easy
    RICHARD -- debary, FL   5/11/2013
    Exactly what I was looking for. It works great.
    KEITH -- dallas, TX   4/12/2013
    Works just like it says!
    GLENN -- kingston, WA   4/4/2013
    This gizmo has solved a long standing problem. It worked correctly the first time and every time thereafter. It took all of ten minutes to connect. We had bought a similar device from a national home chain. It never worked....a really sorry excuse for technology. Thank you for stocking a device that really does the job!
    STEPHEN -- columbia, MD   1/26/2013
    Product works as expected. But Smarthome neither designed nor made it. You just sell it. Even so, I ordered it from Amazon.com. Amazon subbed it to Smarthome. Big deal.
    DANIELE -- lodi, NJ   1/17/2013
    Great product. Easy to install
    DEAN -- alpine, CA   11/15/2012
    Worked perfect, except the ad said 8v to 24v but instructions with it says to use with 16v transformer only. Wired it to home transformer, plug in chime, and it worked perfect, even with receiver 100 feet away.
    NORMAN M -- eugene, OR   11/14/2012
    Worked OK after cutting out original chimes, that is: the transformer on the original chimes used most of the power so that only one additional plug-in chimes would work. Only after cutting out the original chimes would the new three plug-in chimes work around the house.
    crg -- oaklyn,NJ   11/5/2012
    Don't waste your money,can't be heard more than two feet away and it has no volume control !
    GARY -- shreveport, LA   10/11/2012
    The plug-in Extend-a-chime was extremely easy to install and works well. Just wish I knew how to order just the plug-in part as I could use some more of them scattered around the house.
    LINDA -- annandale, VA   10/5/2012
    It worked perfectly on our 3 seasons porch. sound quality very good.
    BRUCE -- mitchell, ON   9/22/2012
    Had some problem with interference with our indoor/outdoor thermometer, but weer able to resolve it. Otherwise does the job - we can now hear the doorbell upstairs. Easy to install.
    MARY -- colorado springs, CO   9/1/2012
    I am a single woman. This item was easy to install. On my first attempt at installation, I could not get the chime to stop ringing repeatedly, so I uninstalled it, waited a few days for my mind to clear and attempted the installation again. It worked like a charm! I don't know what I was doing wrong the first time. The one objection I have is that the chime could be louder.
    SUSANNE -- glenolden, PA   7/27/2012
    It is perfect. No need to hire an electrician. Easy to attach.
