Door Chime Problem


sparky24

Recommended Posts

A customer has a Friedland D3126 door chime adjacent the front door which basically is a chime with integral transformer. The connections to it are 230v supply to tx and a 2core bell wire from push button.

 

The customer wants another chime fitted in parallel so she knows when someone is at the door when she is in the garden. Due to this type of device it is not possible and needs replacing. 

 

She doesn't want a completely wireless system as she doesn't want to rely on batteries.

I am thinking of fitting a normal wired setup with stand alone transformer and separate chime. The problem comes with the additional chime. The run is very awkward and long so running wiring to opposite side of house is a last resort. Can I get something to wire into new system near front door that sends a wireless signal to a chime near the back door that is also wired. ie both chimes are wired (not relying on batteries) and operate from one common wired push button.

Hope that makes sense,

regards, sparky24

you should be able to wire 2x chime in parallel. take it apart and you will find connections to the coil, connect additional chime to that and all should be good

looks like you might have to go with the separate transformer and 2 chimes in parallel then. cant think of any off the shelf that you want, other than completely wireless. friedland are good chimes, the wireless do last a long time before battery change and you can have more than 1 receiver per push button
