Wireless/Wired Door Chime - Nutone LA600WH (LA600WH)
Wireless/Wired Door Chime - Nutone LA600WH
Best electronic door chime I have seen
Comes with 6 pre-installed MP3 chime sounds that have really good quality recorded sound (a welcome change from the cheesy MIDI-like sounds of other electronic chimes). My favorite is Song 6 which is the conventional Winchester Chimes. You can easily add you own MP3 sounds by connecting the unit to your PC using a supplied USB cable (Type-A to Mini-B), and copying files to the "new drive letter" that appears.
Easy to hook up: just connect the "Front" and "Common" wire, or if you also have a back door you can connect its "Back" and "Common" wires also. No need to hook both "Transformer" wires like some other chimes (e.g., GE models).
Requires a 16V transformer (sold separately) ... my house had a pre-installed 20V transformer, so I bought the Nutone 16V transformer to replace it.
This kit also does not come with doorbell buttons, if you need those (or like I did, want to upgrade), then you need to buy those separately. I found the Heath HX-301-PB to be a great accompaniment to this Nutone electronic chime.
The chime box can be mounted either in a horizontal ("landscape") or vertical ("portrait") orientation as suits you. In addition, the curved white plastic front cover can be removed and you can put your own chime cover in its place (for example, if you have or want to get an old-timey wooden-slat style cover ... there are some nice ones on eBay from wood crafters).
This door chime can also work with wireless doorbell buttons
