With a long 300-metre transmission range (barrier-free) it will suit most homes and small businesses.The doorbell has four volume settings.
The doorbell consists of a transmitter and two separate receivers. The receivers do not require any batteries – they plug in to power points inside the house where they can best be heard.
The transmitter is battery powered (1 x 12V battery is included) and can be mounted using either double-sided tape or the supplied anchors and screws if the backing surface is suitable.
With purchase, you receive a transmitter (which measures 18*9.8*7.4cm) and two receivers.
To install you need to first pair the transmitter with the receivers to select and install a ringtone by following the detailed instructions supplied. Once that is done you can mount the transmitter on the doorframe or other permanent location.
If you wish to later change the ringtone you can do so by again following the instructions (it is a different process) and using the screwdriver supplied.
