Ding Dong......
16 Dec 2015
By
, Antrim.
" Repacement for existing doorbell...does exactly what it says on the box. Did the wiring myself and the house hasn't burnt down yet, so must be right!! Now it makes a ringing noise when you press the button.....so it seems to have fulfilled its destiny.
Quite high pitched "ding dong" though, so if you have trouble with hearing high frequencies (like me old dad) this may not be the product for you. "

Proper job
28 Apr 2014
By

" This seems a really good product with clear instructions in proper English and easily fitted by a pensioner to replace a 40 year old system. Good value too. Actually too soon to comment on reliability, but no option to leave rating out.. "

Much better than my last one
23 Aug 2013
By
, Newhampton
" The transformer burnt out on an old unit i had, came to Screwfix to find a transformer, only to find that this new kit was cheaper! Bought it and fitted it that day.
I think a great product is something you can fit and then forget about, safe in the knowledge it will work. This is that type of product. "

ding dong
7 Nov 2015
By
, Lurgan
" The unit works well with a loud ding dong at a very good price. The packaging said it contained a brass push but it is white as shown on the box.
The bell push connects to the top 2 terminals with the transformer connecting to the bottom 2 terminals . This doesn't show on the chime unit of on the instructions.

A good functional door bell
18 Oct 2014
By
, Leicestershire
" A competitively priced wired door bell system with the option to be mains powered via a transformer or alternatively by a 9v battery. It was easy to fit and and works well for me.
I have fitted it because the bell push on the wireless system I had previously was too far away from from the chime unit.

Good product and a great price
17 Oct 2014
By

" Quality product that was easy to fit. Produced a loud ding-dong and will definitely use again. Only small gripe is the size of the transformer (it is large and not something you would want in your hallway, it would have been nice if had been fitted in the bell housing. "

" As Leslie Phillips would say 'Ding dong!" my only gripe is lack of cable clips supplied so order some more clips if your'e going to have a long run of wire, other than that it does the job and easy to install. "

Cheap, and sounds it!
29 Dec 2015
By
, Bristol
" No instructions in the box, so 20 mins online to find correct ones, although not difficult if a new installation, but mine was to replace a defective unit which had five wires. This needs just 4.
Easy when you know how, but disappointing ding-dong. Very tinny and not very loud, but it does ding and dong so meets the need. Wouldn't buy another one like this. Spend a bit more if you want a louder ding-dong.

" Value for money with Bell and Transformer, bell push basic. Bell good and loud for small property might struggle on larger. Wire waste of time to thin and breaks easily , use bigger and better quality wire, clips were to big for wire. "

17 Oct 2014

" Possibly the quietest door bell I've ever heard.
I got this as it was the cheapest way to get the transformer. It would probably be ok for a flat or small house but not loud enough for my house with 4 kids running around.

Did not work
23 Nov 2014
By
, Wiltshire
" Totally useless. With batteries, did not work.
With transformer, did not work.
With every wire connection combination, did not work. The most annoying thing was that I first spent 10 hours drilling walls and feeding cable and building a shockproof box for the transformer out of a waterproof junction box, then found the bell unit was useless. Also, who designs these transformers? They have no protection from electric shock. Make sure your electrician houses yours safely in a box out of harms way. Archaic wire connection system too. Fiddly, like Victorian electrics. Hasn't the manufacturer heard of plugs/sockets, or grubscrew blocks?

Absolute joke of a product
2 Jun 2014
By
, Heathrow
" I bought this to replace a wireless system (in fact we've had three ranging from cheap and expensive ones with lots of issues) and decided to go wired instead.
Bought this and everything about the product (price, build quality, etc) seemed great except for the fact there is only a ding and no dong sound! I thought it was just my unit but when I took it back for a replacement the next one was the same (i took a 9V battery with me to test it). So the staff member helped me go through all the stock they had to test each one and they all have the same issue! The bell hammer only goes one way to make a ding sound but doesn't bounce back far enough to make the dong sound.
Very poor product, I think a spring or simple solution would have fixed this. Seems like other reviewers experienced same issue.
Can't fault the staff though, very helpful - they were amazed how poor quality the product was and gave back a full refund. "
