Product Description

Product Description

Announce your visitors in style, to custom music you create yourself, or choose from well over 100 built-in songs, sound effects, and even voice phrases with the Musical Doorbell. This electronic door chime is designed to replace the normal wired mechanical door bell in your home. It supports a front door button (both lighted and non-lighted) as well as a back door button (optional). An additional speaker can be added for larger homes, basements, etc. It can be setup to play any particular song or sound, or for more variety, it can sequence through any one of twelve groups. (Note: This product is not wireless.) The Musical Doorbell comes with a unique programmable feature. Using the built in piano-like keyboard, you can easily program in your own song! It even comes with an instruction manual containing the notes for many more popular tunes. A song can be programmed note by note or it can simply be played like a piano and the doorbell will record and playback your composition. No more annoying ding dongs. Program songs for family events such as birthdays or anniversaries. Have it play your school fight song. Switch it to Holiday songs for your guests at your Christmas party. Have it scream or howl for Halloween. The possibilities are endless! Comes complete with over 100 built-in songs, animal sounds, & voice phrases. Plus it's user-programmable for any song you want!

I thought it would be fun to have a cool door bell when we built a new house recently, and this doorbell provides lots of entertainment for our kids and guests love it. I love the spooky Halloween cackles, holiday and kids' songs. I only gave it four stars because I find the piano keyboard very difficult to use when you want to record a chime--it doesn't really capture the notes and rhythm in the right time, so my dreams of having the Monday Night Football song or the Michigan Fight Song playing is over. Also, unbelievably, they do NOT have "Happy Birthday" as one of their song options. There are some cheesy vocies that yell "Happy Birthday" but not the classic musical song. I'm guessing there must be some trademark issue with using that song, but who knows!?! Anyway, I did tons of research and I am VERY happy with this purchase. They are also very helpful if you have any installation or other questions. I called them on the number listed on [...] once and also posted to their helpful user forum that has installation tips and also a user forum where you can share programmable doorbell songs! Have fun and get this one!!

Nice compact unit in an off-white plastic cabinet. Lots of tunes to choose from. Has special tunes for birthdays, holidays, etc. Also includes a few voice announcements such as "there's someone at the door". You can record and store other tunes of your own choice via the provided built-in mini-keyboard. All tunes are played via either chimes or bells -- whatever you like best. Switching between tunes at a future date is easy and takes less than a minute. MP3s cannot be uploaded and played. For the back door, the unit provides a separate tune that can't be changed -- but it adequately serves its purpose.

Our Microsystems Development musical doorbell replaced an older Nutone musical doorbell that stopped working after 15 years. When I got in touch with Nutone regarding possible repairs (it currently sells for over $100 on the Web) they recommended that I get in touch with a local electrician. That would've cost me close to $200 to replace Nutone (since most of the electricians would've charged me "at least" the manufacturer's list price) -- plus another $75 to $150 for their time. At that cost, it was never going to happen. I would've preferred to return the old Nutone doorbell to be repaired, but Nutone doesn't offer that option. So the old Nutone went into the trash.

Overall, this musical doorbell was relatively easy to install, looks quite nice on the wall, and it was half of the Nutone's Web price. Only took about 20 minutes to take the old Nutone off of the wall and mount and wire this one in its place. I used the previously installed AC bell transformer, along with the in-wall wiring that had been used for the Nutone unit. If you don't already have a transformer, you'll need to buy one -- or you can optionally run this musical doorbell off of batteries.

I got this doorbell to replace a standard doorbell on the top floor of my house. It turns out that because you must place a diode across the switch/button, my functioning doorbell in the lower floor no longer worked, but was always stuck half on, buzzing and vibrating.

I replaced the doorbell with a second of these musical doorbells and the two work fine together.

There's a huge selection of tunes, but the speaker is sub-par and they sound pretty blurry at any but the lowest volume settings.

It took us less than an hour to enter the notes for "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and replace our old doorbell with this great product. Wonderful fun to be able to honor our love of baseball (go Diamondbacks!) with the doorbell ring. We looked at other products that allow you to record cuts from CDs to use as your ring, but we like the doorbell-sounding ring better.

This is one of the best doorbell I have ever seen. It has over a hundred of different variety of musical tunes, including; Halloween, Christmas, children favorite, animals sound and more. It also has a mini keyboard for creating your own tune. The speaker is very loud, but is has a volume control. It can be set to chime or bell. The best feature is within each category of tune, you can select it to cycle through each tune every time the bell is activated. Or you can select one individual tune to ring each time. The set up is very easy. The only thing is the doorbell doesn't come with the push button for the door. You have to purchase it your self.

It was really easy to set up and once you figure out how to get the timing correct, it's really easy to create your own doorbell. My baby loves the animal noises and I have so much fun with it. We've had it for about a month now and I still make people ring the door more than once. Some reviewers said that if it's turned up full blast they hear a buzz, but that's not the case with our bell. The sound is awesome. I think for the money...it's worth it. So fun.
