Growing up, my brother and I had tons of neighborhood friends. It seemed that every other house had someone our age with whom to play. Now, I’m not going to feed you some nonsense about “kids in my day,” because, frankly, I don’t need a blog to make me feel old. But the truth is, before cell phones and the internet, we got a street hockey game started the old fashioned way…door to door.
There was nothing better than the sound of the doorbell. It almost always included a group of mischievous friends on the other side hatching a scheme or two. More often than not, they needed my brother’s devilry to pull off something really fantastic so I was always in the loop. I think there are a handful of things that make my parent’s house still feel like home. A familiar knickknack, the holiday china, and that familiar ring of the doorbell.
Heath Zenith manufactured the first door chime in the 1940’s but technology has come a long way in seventy years. Today’s wireless options are convenient, flexible, and stylish. No installation or wiring required, simply mount and enjoy! Take a look at a few of the many options provided by Heath Zenith.
The SL-6186-C‘s more traditional style may be just right for your home. The three, satin brass tubes and solid oak cover give a classic look and add a touch of nostalgia.
One battery operated receiver and one battery operated push button with up to 150 feet transmission range are included with your kit. The chime features an 8-note Westminster melody or a 2-note melody for the front entrance and an optional 1-note melody for an additional entrance with adjustable volume controls to suit varying sound needs.
The SL-6144-A Plug-In Chime offers a really exceptional additional feature. The top of the chime box has a powerful, flashing strobe light to signify when a visitor has pushed the doorbell. Perfect for an individual who is hearing impaired or someone looking for an additional indicator.
This unit also features a plug-in chime module. Instead of needing to replace a battery in the unit, it stays constantly powered by a convenient outlet. The chime features an 8-note Westminster melody or a 2-note melody for the front entrance and a 100 foot transmission range.
Another creative solution from Heath Zenith is the SL-7052-00. A great fit for additional home security or a small business, this kit includes two door entry notifiers (a chime will sound as soon as a door is opened.)
These door chime monitors can be attached to a business entrance to notify you when someone has entered or connected to a pool door to notify you when someone has exited.
Safety, convenience, and awareness all from a door chime!
But perhaps my favorite option is the SL-6164-B Musical 64 Tune Door Chime. This Heath Zenith chime features sixty-four different chime options. Imagine picking chimes for each holiday, a special chime for a child’s birthday, or just keeping the tune fresh. The simple white, plastic cover will coordinate with any decor and offers 100 feet transmission range.
Heath Zenith provides quality solutions and a variety of stylish options.
