Product Description

Replace your old, worn-out door chime with a new chime with the Heath/Zenith Greek Column Wired Door Chime. This wired chime features a classic white molded outer finish designed to look like a Greek column. It uses digital sound quality tones for pleasing melodies when your guests come to visit, and offers two different tones so you can easily tell which door your guests are using. The front door features an 8-note Westminster melody, while the rear includes a two-note, ding dong melody. For operation, the wired door chime requires both a low voltage transformer and bell wire (not included).

From the Manufacturer

The 81-A features contemporary styling with a white cover. The low voltage chime has an 8-note Westminster melody for the front entrance.

Color: Mahogany Verified Purchase
I'm not impressed with this product, and will return it unused. As others have said, the parts characterized as "Oil Rubbed Bronze Tubes" (these words imply "...metal tubes") are indeed plastic tubes with some kind of fake metallic bronze-looking glossy plastic tape wrapped around them. The more detailed description does clarify these as "bronze finish tubes," but still misleading. VERY cheap looking, and of course it is very cheaply made. The product listing is inaccurate. The wood box and inlay are decent. The sound source is your typical black box cheap electronic sound maker. Reasonable as far as electronic sound box door chimes on the market go. Now, the manufacturer makes it easy for to remove the fake looking tubes in a way that you have a clean wooden cover. BUT, it is not worth the money. No, no, no. This product sells for $122 on Amazon. The item can be considered to have value similar to the HE-2219-CH model that is selling for $78 on Amazon. Basically, this item is $45 extra for the 3 ugly fake plastic tubes. Ugh. I could make tubes that would probably look better with 3 used paper towel rolls and a small can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint.

I installed this is my parents home. So far, we like it just fine!

Although the instructions state that it might not work with lighted door buttons, I have one on the back door and it does work (however, instead of ringing 1-note, it rings 2-notes). The front door rings the 8-notes as expected. Other wired door chimes, having the 8-note Westminster chime sound, are much more costly--$69.95 and up.

The style is much more decorative, fitting in with my traditional decor, since the doorbell wiring is in a formal dining room. (Other styles were eyesores and much more modern in styling). It can stand on its own or be useful for a small shelf. It can be painted to camouflage with the wall coloring. While it is plastic, it appears to be like a plaster or painted wood design.

It was easy to install.

The door bell is great. I had more wires than the instructions said I would have so e-mailed the company to get help but never got an answer. I had to install a resister in the push button outside and found the screws were rusted. I could not remove the button. I made a trip to Lowe's, got a new button and a tap to remove the screws. I then installed the new button. After that I played with the wires until I found the right order to hook them up. Now it works perfect. The quality was better than I expected. I would advise anyone who was putting in a new door bell to replace their outside button if it is older. Musical door bells need a resister in the outside button (the resister comes with the door bell). I also like that I have a volume control on the door bell. I love it.

This is a superb doorbell that does NOT sound "digital". Wonderful selection of melodies.

Only point to make...the wood is not a dark stain at all...rather it is a honey teak color...actually works much better for me!

Make sure u setup the diode correctly and get the proper transformer voltage n wattage ratings.

The easiest thing to do is buy a Heath/Zenith doorbell push button n transformer...then everything works great together.

I wish I had been able to hear the options before I bought it and had an electrician install it. At this point it is not worth it to uninstall it and chose something else, but every time I hear it I just shake my head - oy! One of the chimes is not too terrible, but the others are just awful! The good news is the box is quite pretty.

Color: Mahogany Verified Purchase
We moved into a new home and it had builder grade (awful) doorbells - one on the first floor and one on the second. We couldn't hear either one very well and missed a lot of UPS deliveries because of it (we were home, but didn't hear doorbell). So I was looking for one which looks nice, has a nice chime but also has ample volume, as it is a fairly large home. This chime did the trick. We replaced the downstairs unit with this one and turned off the upstairs unit, as this one is loud enough to be heard throughout the home, even on the second floor. It has two tunes to choose from and it was easy to install.

The cover is all I expected it to be, but the polyphonic sound leaves a lot to be desired. I am considering getting a new bell box to get rid of the sound that's emitted when the door bell rings.

Color: Solid Maple Verified Purchase
Product is made cheaply, it's not brushed nickel tubes. The tubes are made of wood and coated with a "brush nickel" laminate. In addition to this, the solid maple cover has imperfections in the pattern that looks like bubbles. I ordered one unit and found the laminate to be bubbled along with the imperfections in the wood. Thinking this was a fluke, I returned it and had another one sent. When I receive this one, I saw the same issues and have now returned the replacement for a full refund. For the price I would not suggest purchasing this product.
