4. VicTsing HHM001WEU-vit, my favorite

The classification is IP55, which guarantees protection against objects, large splashes of water and dust of all kinds, making it safe to install even in very difficult external situations.

The 70 degrees should obviously not be considered as coming from the outside, in fact no place in the world reaches these temperatures, but there is never to be underestimated the possibility that our device installed outside can be heated internally after several hours spent in hot weather .
Operation is extremely easy, just connect the small transmitter with a futuristic design to the power socket and press the central button on the remote control to start flashing and sound.
The kit with which it is sold is also complete with accessories for fixing to the wall, but if you are not familiar with bricolage, simply glue it with the very comfortable double-sided adhesive tape inside the box.
This VicTsing doorbell can operate up to a good 300 meters, which makes it excellent for even very large housing situations, such as small multi-storey houses.
The 300 meters must be considered outdoors, there is not to forget a very important fact, namely that this size decreases significantly if there are obstacles between the receiver and the bell button that sends the signal from time to time.
This model has 52 different ringtones to identify and configure the preferred one, even the volume is adaptable to your needs, it is obvious that if we are in a very noisy home environment it will be better to opt for a high volume, in contrast if you live in a quiet context and you are very close to the receiver better to choose a smaller volume to prevent this disturbing every time the bell is sounded.
5. Avantek DT62_3, one of the best on the market

How do wireless bells work?
Wireless bells are very simple bells that do not need to interface with the electrical network, which makes them very flexible, for example where they are positioned where the normal bells would never arrive and be used in creative and useful solutions.
Another great use of this type of device is in fact that of support for the elderly and the sick, as a sort of life-saving bell.
Nowadays, technological progress has allowed this type of bell to become endowed with incredible functionality and also to be real design components that integrate perfectly outside or inside our homes.
The new wireless bells have a competitive price and are quite simple, if we have to consider the structure that composes them, in fact they are completely based on a receiving base and a transmitter.
This is usually positioned outside, for example near a door or gate, but it can obviously also be used indoors, no one forbids it, indeed when it is exploited for its life-saving peculiarities it is good to place it near elderly or sick inside the house itself.
In order to always work in spite of atmospheric agents and possible external traumas, wireless bells are built with very resistant and waterproof materials.
Usually they are connected to a support installed on the wall by means of screws or a simple double-sided adhesive tape in case you want to avoid piercing the wall, and the power supply comes from a very simple replaceable battery, you will know well that this way it bypasses the need to connect the bell to the mains, avoiding tangles of cables, annoying anti-aesthetic channels around the house, etc.
The receiver is obviously positioned inside the house, this one powered directly by the central electric system with 220 volt current, so this element must be installed by force of things next to an electric socket.
The fact that only the receiver requires to be connected to the electrical system of the home makes the overall installation of the system very easy compared to the traditional one of a bell with wires, even if obviously the cost of the wireless one is necessarily higher, on balance if you calculate the price of the installation that you would normally have to add, you will end up on a par. A device without a shadow of a doubt futuristic and convenient, for home automation solutions.
The most advanced models can reach an operating range of up to four hundred meters, which obviously allows their use in any type of building, even for industrial applications, let us imagine, for example, inside factories.
Many models require the use of completely personalized ringtones via USB connection. Simply connect the device once to configure it to your home computer or laptop to be able to insert your own song or a favorite sound to listen to every single time someone decides to play our bell, a really nice solution that will satisfy the tastes of all.
Other models have motion sensors that can intelligently reveal the presence of people in the surroundings and light up or start playing. Which makes them an interesting double-edged weapon, a Swiss army knife for home automation that can also be used for security, or to check that their little ones don’t come close to dangerous areas of the house, for example during the night when we’re not on alert for control them.
There is also the possibility for more advanced models to use a convenient connected video camera that has infrared night vision, a technology directly borrowed from the military world.
Wireless bells with more features can also be controlled remotely via Android or iOS smartphones or tablets. In this way it will be possible to live like inside a futuristic film, in fact every time someone will play at our bell will be available at a distance the video and the audio of what is happening at that precise moment in that area.
The first factor to consider when you are buying a wireless doorbell is its range, measurable in meters, to be chosen always higher than the actual one to sleep quiet dreams and to prevent radio or electrical interference from disturbing its functioning.
Let me explain better, by purchasing an electric bell with a 100-meter range indicated on the package, if we were to install it at 90 meters, we should expect in some rare conditions such as in the case of very severe weather or the random presence of many devices at the same time that can cause interference, this flow would hypothetically reduce, thus making the connection between receiver and bell impossible.
The external pushbutton panel must also include enough pushbuttons if the doorbell is to be used in multi-residential contexts, for example we think of terraced houses or large apartment buildings. A button must be provided for each tenant or apartment.
It is essential, not to forget, to check that the receivers can be associated with each other, and there must be enough.
The basic principle of operation can be easily learned and understood by all.
The parameters that distinguish one particular kit from another are certainly:
- the maximum operating distance, to be always considered in relation to the presence or absence of interference fields within our structure.
- The operation of the transmitter that in some cases must be connected to the electric socket and in others simply works through a removable battery.
- The protection of the bell from wear agents such as dust and water, essential if you plan to install it outside in very rainy contexts or even where there is often snow, without any protection around the device.
- The range in open field is instead the maximum distance at which transmitter and receiver communicate without the presence of intermediate obstacles.
In the case in which you want to install a wireless bell in a multi-storey house or with a large area, it is always better to orientate your purchase towards devices and models that indicate a far greater range than the one we need, even twice or even triple to be on the safe side.
It is important to check what type of power supply the bell transmitter transmitting station will use.
Some models are battery-powered only, with the passing of months it will be necessary to replace this one, which for some might be a bit uncomfortable, other systems are incredibly able instead to exploit the kinetic energy of the finger to send the signal to the receiving control unit , which makes them totally independent from any type of power supply, they will feed themselves in this case.
What is certain is that cordless bells will have a greater range, they are indicated if they are to cover much greater distances, while those without a battery are advisable in small housing situations, in which there are frequent bell pressures but the distance with the receiver is reduced to the minimum terms.
In case you decide, and it is a standard situation, to place the bell outside you will have to take into account the fact that this will face atmospheric agents such as wind, rain, fog, humidity and snow, or even worse, the penetration of powders.
To safeguard its functioning over time there is also a need to take a look on the packaging at the temperature variation that the button can withstand without problems. If you live in areas of Italy that are very hot or very cold, you will need to buy a device that will tolerate even very large swings. Keep in mind that when the sun hits heavily all day on an object it can raise its internal temperature up to incredible and unpredictable figures.
It is clear and obvious that all devices that are labeled for outdoor use can easily be used without paranoia even inside the home, while the opposite is not valid. Never use indoor designed bells outdoors.
An excellent wireless doorbell should never fall below an operating distance of one hundred meters. Some models even reach 500 meters.
The manufacturing companies obviously tend to exaggerate, as these are values guaranteed and tested in the open-air laboratory, in the absence of interference and obstacles, but it is clear that this kind of condition practically never occurs in a daily civil use.
The degree of impermeability is instead indicated with the abbreviation IP followed by two comfortable numbers, the first will indicate the degree of protection from solid objects, the second from humidity. A bell with a protection rating of IP55 will prevent the penetration of solid objects greater than 2mm and large splashes of water if necessary.
A model with classification on the IP66 box will finally have a superior type of protection, resistant even to any dust that could creep inside while we do not notice it and compromise its functioning forever, thus forcing us to throw it away.
Also in this case the protection against water would be superior, allowing the bell to survive not only in the case of weak sprays but also very strong jets of water. If obviously the bell has to be installed without protection around it is good to make sure that these two numbers that accompany the P are decidedly high to avoid having to replace the device ahead of time.
The most performing models will undoubtedly be those that can withstand both extreme temperatures and numerous dusts and powerful amounts of water, in this way they are guaranteed to work perfectly both in extremely extreme cold temperatures and during the hot weather. Every situation must be considered in detail.
Wireless bells with 100% functionality obviously also have a double signaling system, both light and sound.
The selectable ringtones will obviously be different preset, some companies tend to install more pleasant sounds and melodies, while others still have not been able to understand that the psychological choice of a sound that is listened to so many times during the day is important and therefore they are not adequate by equipping their models with pleasant human sounds.
The visual signal is optimal for the deaf or for those who are not very good at hearing, in this case the device will flash, going to reinforce the acoustic signal with an optic.
This type of device can be used without problems even inside homes to safeguard the life of a sick or elderly person who can solicit help with the push of a button.
There is a reason why wireless bells are so much sold, and this is certainly not only their affordable price, the reason in question is their extreme ease of assembly and configuration.
There is no need for technicians to come home or to set up complicated DIY and DIY situations, even a child would be able to set up a wireless bell system, let alone!
Inside the package there must always be an intuitive assembly kit to facilitate the immediate use of the bell, it is good to have a look before buying to check that there is also a double-sided adhesive tape which otherwise would have to be purchased separately especially if you don’t want to pierce the wall with classic screws.
Can it be used for the elderly?
Many wonder if wireless bells can be used for the elderly and the needy. The answer is without a doubt: yes.
Since this type of technology is extremely easy they are not to be installed but also to be used. The buttons are large enough to be pressed even by people with very serious vision or mental problems.
There is absolutely no need to worry, if you live at home with elderly or sick wireless bells will be the solution that will do for you.
I hope this guide has been helpful.
The world of home automation and technological innovation dedicated to the home is full of offers and companies that introduce new products every day, it is not always easy to disentangle in this jungle.
