Homasy Wireless Doorbell Kit Review
We love to spend time in our back yard “oasis” as much as possible during the warmer months. The problem with that is that if someone comes to the door, we can’t hear the doorbell. We don’t like to leave the whole house open for just anyone to walk in without being detected, so when I heard about the Homasy Wireless Doorbell Kit, I was excited to try it. Homasy offered their Wireless Doorbell Kit at a discounted price in exchange for a fair, unbiased review. I was more than happy to comply!
When I got the box, I opened it and pulled out the contents. Within a few short minutes, I had removed the old electric doorbell and installed the Homasy Wireless Doorbell Kit in its’ place. The Homasy Doorbell consists of one doorbell that can either be mounted with double sided mounting tape or screwed into the outer wall or doorframe, your choice. Now if I were renting I would probably choose to use the mounting tape but since I own my home, I chose to replace the existing doorbell, which required drilling new holes, as the holes that my previous bell used weren’t in the same place the new doorbell needed. The hardest part of the whole exercise was taking the old screws out of the old doorbell. The rest was super simple!
The Homasy Wireless Doorbell Kit also has 2 receivers, so I chose a spot in my kitchen that can be heard throughout the house, and the second spot is just outside my back door. I keep the ringer lower on that receiver so that I don’t annoy my neighbors. The other feature I really like is the choice of rings and volumes. There are 52 different rings, from the standard ding-dong to musical melodies that are easily recognizable and fun. There’s even a Christmas carol! Once you have chosen your ring, experiment with the volume to find what works best in your home.
This bell is rated to work up to 1000 feet unobstructed- it may not go as far if there is a lot of steel or other obstructions, but should still work up to 100-500ft. The transmitter uses one 12V 23A alkaline battery (included) and the receivers use electricity. No other maintenance is needed for this kit. The only thing I didn’t understand is that the description says you can leave a message but there isn’t really any room to write anything so I wouldn’t expect much in that regard. Other than that, I was very impressed with the Homasy Wireless Doorbell Kit and would recommend it to anyone needing a doorbell.
