Essential Info

The Dakota Alert DC-1000 Wireless Doorbell is a simple way to conveniently add a doorbell anywhere around your home. The base station is powered by a power adapter or a 3 "C" cell batteries (both sold separately), and one CR-2450 battery (included) required for the remote controller. Each DC-1000 base station acts as a table top or wall mounted unit; the push button will typically mount to a door frame.

Depending on the local terrain, the wireless doorbell has the ability to transmit the frequency up to 1,000 feet to be received by the indoor base station. As many as 16 different tones can be played through the base station when the transmitter is activated. The variety of options makes it a bit more fun when selecting a tone to personalize your unit. Each base station is capable of receiving signals from up to 4 push button transmitters (extra push-buttons sold separately). The DC-1000 additional push buttons can be added to the base station anytime. Individual tones can be assigned to each push button in order to allow the user to distinguish between each location. Besides the audible indication you will hear after push button activations, the base station also has 4 visual LED indicators. One of the 4 LED indicators will illuminate when the zone it was assigned to is activated.

ALEX -- toronto, ON   5/8/2014
incomplete specifications. I bought 2 units one has standard melodies(all kind of chimney) the other has some animal sounds(rooster, dog, etc). It was no mention of this when I bought it, else I would get both of them with animals. Else, excelent range. It is working
DWAYNE -- new orleans, LA   4/28/2014
The product received didn't work. I had three different associates attempt getting it to work, even an electrician- and it just was a faulty product. Was highly disappointed.
KEVIN -- scottsdale, AZ   1/24/2014
The product works as advertised. We had to buy two, one for the house and a second one for our guesthouse/office. It penetrates the walls of the house and guesthouse fine over about 300' and about 5 walls. We miss the voice communications from our old doorbell.
DAN -- portland, OR   1/6/2014
Works as advertised, although the power adaptor was not included nor does there appear to be provisions for a power adaptor. Batteries will get annoying.
DANIEL -- east wenatchee, WA   11/22/2013
Easy installation, very good value. Range is by 1/4th diminished due to metal building.
CHETAN -- surat, XX   10/20/2013
at the time we not received this shipment
DONALD -- buda, TX   9/3/2013
I received the single individual door bell button that was on backorder. When I received it I installed it on my gate and it has now started to malfunction. The door bell button will not work when you push the button but it will randomly work when no one is pushing it. I am disappointed in this single button....
LAURIE -- dacre, ON   8/29/2013
Happy with the product overall. It does everything I want it to do with one exception... It has multiple zones to cover my three doors, covers great distance with no trouble, has good volume... Only thing is the chime sounds on the one does not match the chime sounds on the other. I bought 2 hoping I could put one upstairs and one in the shop and have the same rings for each door... Not possible to have the same sounds... The first one I set up had traditional type doorbell sounds programmed into it. The second one had animal noises and other weird sounds. Wasn't exactly pleased. Aside from that, everything is good and I'm very happy to have functional doorbells at every door to my home and business.
MICHAEL -- irvine, CA   6/15/2013
Much better than the wireless doorbells from Lowes or HomeDepot. This works very well and is quick to setup. Make sure you get the electrical plug, sold separately, if you don't want to use batteries.
VANITA -- kirkland, QC   5/14/2013
Completely satisfied; used in an office setting; easy to program; programmed with an additional push button for exterior door, included button was used on an interior door (both the same button)- both working beautifully; interesting chime choices; great volume adjustment; we mounted ours with double-sided tape; battery for button included, no power included for actual chime which needs 3 CC batteries if you're not buying the adaptor; our 2nd button is about 700 feet away from the unit. Terrific value!!!!
LOU -- fountain, FL   5/10/2013
Excellent. Easy to program, and delivers the distance promised.
MAINTENANCE -- pahrump, NV   3/27/2013
Great product, great price. Took a little long to receive but worth the wait!
THOMAS -- white house station, NJ   2/12/2013
The unit appears to be faulty. The battery in the outside door bell dies within two days. The battery was changed twice.The unit needs to be replaced.
CHARLES -- fort collins, CO   1/13/2013
Very sophisticated product
WAYNE -- florence, SC   10/22/2012
Set up is a little clunky. But does the job
WANDA -- rugby, ND   5/27/2012
