Wired Doorbells for Your Home

Sometimes referred to as a doorbell chime box or wired door chime, wired doorbells are products wired from the push button (usually located outside) to the transformer or the unit itself, depending on the model. A wired Doorbell is a unit where the doorbell ringer sound comes from. Usually, these are hanging in your home’s foyer or front entryway.

In most cases, a doorbell transformer is required. The doorbell transformer steps down the electric current in your home to 10V-16V that your wired door chime can handle. There are wired doorbell chimes that run off batteries, but a lighted doorbell button will quickly drain the wired chime batteries. 1800doorbell carries a large variety of doorbells (wired doorbell chime box)

With many wired doorbell kits, wired door bells, and decorative wired doorbell choices, making a selection may seem daunting. We have product filters to help you narrow down your selections.  Just under the category menus on the left-hand side of the screen, you will notice a green-colored block of filters where you can select the style you are looking for.

A Wired Doorbell Kit vs. a Wired Doorbell

A wired doorbell consists of a chime box emitting the wired doorbell sound. To complete the wired chime system, you will need a push button, bell wire, and a wired doorbell transformer. A doorbell kit consists of a wired doorbell chime box, a wired door chime push button, and a wired doorbell transformer — the kits do not come with doorbell wire. Doorbell kits are available with one doorbell wired, one wired chime push button, or with multiple door chime and doorbell push buttons.

A Complete Wired System, Wired Door Bell Kits

There are four components to a complete system. The doorbell (the chime you hear), the push button (the part you press), bell wire, and an appropriately sized transformer.

There are wired units that are battery-operated and do not need a transformer. Please be aware if you have a battery-operated wired chime, you cannot use a lighted push button. The lighted button draws too much power and would quickly drain the batteries. If you want to replace a chime in your home, the installation requirements may differ from a new one. For a replacement, the first step is to ensure the transformer (if you have one) works correctly. Next, double-check to ensure the push button is working correctly.

If installing a replacement or new product seems daunting, you might want to think about a wireless product such as a wireless plugin door chime or a battery-operated model. These products have come a long way over the years, and many models are just as stylish as traditional wired versions.
