You can definitely choose a custom ring or tone for your wireless doorbell system if you choose a model that has that option.


"They come with voices; some are the basic 'ding-dong' and others will play electronic notes of a certain tune or song. There is one product out that will record your favorite song. With these you just press a button and go up to the radio or CD player to record the sound or song you want. Every time the door bell rings it will play that song. You can also record your voice into it, which is neat because you can personalize it," says doorbell expert John Hartman.


Other ideas include recording a sound bite from your favorite movie or the call of your favorite animal. Dimango Carlon manufactures a wireless doorbell system that includes an internal microphone and jack so you can record directly from your computer or CD player and offers CD quality playback.

Even if you don't want to record your own song or voice there are many built-in options available with the different models of wireless doorbells. You can change the tone or song according to the season or for special occasions. Some of the songs and tones available include "Beethoven's 5th Symphony", the "Star Spangled Banner", "Jingle Bells", "Joy to the World", "Auld Lang Syne", "Dixie", "Happy Birthday", "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", "The Yellow Rose of Texas", and "Westminster Chime".

You can also buy a multiple entrance system that plays a different tone or song when someone is at the front door or the back door. Another great feature of wireless doorbell systems is that you can set up several receivers throughout your house so you will always hear the doorbell. If you have a two-story home you might want to place one upstairs or in the garage if you work there frequently.

Broan, Nutone, and Dimango Carlon are all quality manufacturers of wireless doorbell systems, and prices range from $12 to $150 depending on how fancy you want your system to be. You can find wireless doorbell systems at your local home improvement store or online, and since they are wireless the installation process is simple with no wires to connect. All you have to do is insert the appropriate batteries and attach the transmitter and receiver units to the wall with mounting screws. Some receivers will need to be plugged into an outlet.

There are some great extras and options available with wireless doorbell systems. One model includes an intercom that allows you to speak to the person before opening the door. If you want to go all out you can even purchase a video doorbell that shows you who's on the other side of the door. Other systems include a built-in motion or sound detector that will signal you when someone's at the door even before they ring the doorbell. You can also choose models that alert you when someone is at the door with the use of a flashing light. With these models the sound can be turned off. Wireless doorbells can be customized to every taste and need.
