Rated 3 out of 5 by Budget doorbell This bell looks like others in the catalogue, but it's smaller. The transformer is a 0.5A model. I have no idea how reliable this bell is. 1 Apr 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheap, and sounds it! 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. 29 Dec 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ding Dong...... 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. 16 Dec 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by A poor door bell I purchased one 4 months ago which stopped working after 3 months. Went back for a replacement,Staff were excellent, no quibbles. There were no instructions in the box! another journey back to Screwfix. none of their entire stock had any instructions,which i need as the kit contained a transformer. Asked for and was given a refund 10 Nov 2015

If possible, would the wiring of the bells be in series, or would you run each bell from the transformer?

Answer: 
Hello. The transformer that comes with this door chime is 8 volt, 1 amp and will allow the unit to be wired in a circuit with about 18m of bell wire before the sound starts weakening. If you wanted 2 x door chime units then each of them would need 1 x amp, so you could either use 2 x 8 volt 1 amp transformers or buy a 2 amp transformer. You can wire the units in series or have them as 2 separate systems running from the bell push. However we would also advise, due to the distance you wish to achieve, substituting standard bell wire for a slightly larger core cable. But then we can't guarantee you'll get 25m. This should be good for 18-20m.

Answer: 
The bell push that comes with this kit isn't illuminated. You would need to buy a separate bell push that is illuminated. When installed, a Byron illuminated bell push will be lit all the time other than when the bell push is pressed. Please note that Byron illuminated bell pushes can only be used when the door chime unit is mains powered. Please don't use an illuminated bell push if powering the door chime unit with batteries.
