|We didn't much care for most of the tones on this - we wound up going with the very first standard doorbell sound.
I chose this one primarily because of how the others (very similar) had 50+ tones on it?!?! And you have to cycle through to get to the one you want (again, and if you miss it - again and again) - this was applicable on the other units as well.
THIS however had some rather hilarious tones on it for a doorbell (including a Christmasy one! There's one's with birds chirping and ones that make you feel like you're in a scary carnival!) LOL
But was VERY easy to set up, and then picking the tone, we decided immediately the very first - standard doorbell tone was spot on.
We have ALSO Tested this in the area of the flat where we have all our 'tech' (Wi-fi, router, all sorts)
We put this on the OTHER side - and it still managed to receive from the transmitter (the actual doorbell)
The adhesive on the backside of the doorbell - is very good - my husband has said if it does ever come down we'd definitely put this back up again. (So many people just chuck it if something like this fails - they don't give it a chance.. that's utter waste!)
This does take 2 - AA batteries (not included).
This also has the different modes - where you can put it on silent (if you have little ones napping for instance) - it has a flashing light that sets off.
We've tested all the modes it has (also one for hearing and vision impaired (one where the light and sound goes off!)
We just have it with the sound going off.
The volume is nut HUGELY adjustable, but definitely can adjust it to some degree and really - VERY happy with this!!
I don't see these as a long term solution, but as a renter - with a door - without a doorbell, Very happy!
Plus the receiver (where the sound comes from) - is mobile. You can take it with you out on the balcony, in the garden, in the kitchen - so if you are expecting a delivery or company - and you're needing to tend to something - you can take the receiver with you.
We are in a (let's say) Standard size 2 bedroom 1 bath flat. Very large kitchen and lounge. We have tested this in every room and at the farthest of points - as well as 'in and around' any tech/wi-fi - or otherwise - and it's done just fine.
Very good price and very good product! :)
