The Egg Bell is a doorbell that you may be able to install in just five seconds or less without any hard wire hook-ups. It's called the Egg Bell since each one physically resembles an egg. When you hang the front piece beside any door of your home or business and plug the receiver into an outlet inside, the receiver will always let you know when someone has rung the bell.
The cost of Egg Bell is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping, for a total price of $27.98.
Upon obtaining an Egg Bell, the first thing you'll need to do is install the front piece next to your chosen door. If you're having difficulty determining which piece is the front piece and which is the receiver, the front piece contains a large round button while each receiver's decorated with a crescent moon shape. Once you've identified the front piece, peel the paper off the back of it to reveal the adhesive tape underneath and stick the piece up in the place of your choice.
Next, move indoors and plug the receiver piece into an available electrical outlet. You can plug it in anywhere, in any room, as long as the receiver is located no more than 500 feet away from the front piece. If you install it further away, it may not tell you every time someone pushes the button by your door and thereby rings your bell.
Finally, go outside and ring your own doorbell by pushing the button on the front of your Egg Bell, or have someone else do this. If you're standing inside or you immediately run inside after ringing your bell, you should hear a chiming noise and also see your receiver lighting up. The receiver's volume and the particular chime it emits can be changed whenever you desire, and the buttons that enable these changes are located on the left-hand side of each receiver.
The front piece of each Egg Bell is weatherproof, which means that even if it's subjected to snow, rain, heavy winds or excessive heat, it's unlikely that its adhesive backing will ever lose its stickiness. Therefore, it's highly unlikely that you'll ever go outside and find your doorbell lying on the ground.
The volume on each of these doorbells is adjustable, so you may want to turn yours down to the lowest level while you're sleeping or turn it up while you're running loud appliances. If you don't want this doorbell to disturb you, it won't, but when you want to hear it, you'll be able to ensure that you can hear it loud and clear.
Each Egg Bell comes with more than 50 different built-in chimes that you can select to go off when someone rings your doorbell. Some sound like traditional doorbell noises, while others sound funkier, and one even sounds like the tune of the Christmas song Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. You can opt to keep your selected chime the same for a while or change it every day—it's all up to you and the members of your household.
Aside from chiming when someone rings your bell, the receiver that's connected to each of these doorbells will light up. This will come in handy if someone in your household is hard of hearing or likes to listen to loud music via headphones. If you're sitting near your receiver when your doorbell rings, even if you don't hear the ring itself, you'll see the receiver's light coming on and know that someone's at the door.
The receiver can be moved around your home without losing its connection with the front piece of your Egg Bell unless you move it more than 500 feet away from that piece. If you live or work in a small building that's less than 500 square feet in total, that means you'll be able to install the receiver anyplace in the building with an electrical outlet.
The Egg Bell can be utilized in and around homes, businesses and RVs alike. You won't need to worry about where to put the front piece due to each doorbell's weatherproof nature. Plus, if you have a small business, the doorbell's chime and light will help stop you from ever missing important customers or clients at the door. If you feel like installing more than one of these doorbells, such as one at the front door and one at the back, there's no limit as to how many can be used at once.
Often, tools are needed to wire traditional doorbells, but you'll never need a single tool to install one of these wireless doorbells. Instead, all you'll need are your own two hands to hang up the front piece and plug in the receiver.
On some doorbells, the ringer button is so tiny that it can sometimes be hard to find, especially for people who have vision problems. Fortunately, the button on the front piece of each Egg Bell is large and dark in relation to the rest of the device, so it's unlikely that anyone will ever have a problem identifying it.
If you're trying to conserve electricity, using one of these doorbells might not be the best choice for you since you'll need to keep the receiver plugged into an outlet at all times. Unfortunately, there's no way to operate one of these doorbells by using batteries or solar power.
Some people might not be satisfied with the choice of built-in chimes that come with each doorbell and may want to download and add their own from the internet. This isn't possible with this kind of device, though, so you'll have to pick one of the existing chimes or get a different kind of doorbell.
Without a device like the Egg Bell, you might decide to call up an electrician and have them wire a new traditional doorbell for you if your old one breaks. However, you won't have to hire anyone to install this egg-shaped doorbell properly. If you can stick a sticker on a piece of paper and plug in an electrical cord, you'll be able to install this device. In fact, even a child may be able to.
Smart doorbells are quite trendy these days, but if you get one of those, you'll need to spend time downloading the appropriate app on your smartphone and then programming the doorbell with the app. There will be no programming required if you choose the Egg Bell instead since the receiver will automatically communicate with the doorbell after it's been plugged in within 500 feet of it.
