Re: Lots of issues with the Doorbell and no one is answering the tickets

When was cat7a invented ? If you have a new installation you obviously don't have to worry about length, diameter and resistance. My house (and my wires) are 40 years old. The signal went from switchboard, to 1st floor down to the chime, back to switchboard, crossed some switches (to be able to shut...

Alternative, higher quality mounting

Hi, the current mounting-plate is a desaster in terms of usability. The mounting holes are well too fragile, only a 1/3 of plastic (why plastic at all) can hold the screw. A slight bend or uneven plaster will break it once you try to seat the doorbell on it. Also there is no room behind it for wirin...

Re: Lots of issues with the Doorbell and no one is answering the tickets

P = U * I it makes absoluely no difference - 24V 1A or 12V 2A ... forget about the .2A its nothing. So there is no physical differnce - it can not help. -> Is live video working properly? I doubt it. Depending on your wire (length and diameter and thus resistance) it can make a huge difference.

Re: Digital gong with battery working ?

Thanks Georg, I'll go with the relay approach (forum did not allow to search for "relais" or "relay" so I did not see your post about using a (high voltage) relay). But the setup is now clear to me. Now I need to order a relay and the doorbell is laying on the table and whispering "install me ...". ...

Re: Wiring Grothe Croma 231a

And if your chime doesn’t play the Melodie til the end then, as my Grothe did, you need an relay in addition... Hi Philip, can you elaborate on the relay a bit more ? Did you simply use a 8-12V magnetic relay (that can drive free-flow output) and use that as the "chime", and connecting the chime mo...

Digital gong with battery working ?

Hi, I'm about to re-do my install to be compatible with the doorbell (more powerful transformer and new digital gong, a Grothe Chroma 230a). Can I use wiring "B", where batteries power the chime (for melody until the end) and the transformer only triggers ? Bildschirmfoto 2020-10-17 um 09.25.03.png ...

Re: Mounting plate fragile

I'll buy a doorbell too in the coming weeks, but the plaster at my house is very uneven (that was the style in the late 70s when the house was built). The "ups and downs" are almost 0,5 cm. Any advise what material one could use to put behind the plate to smooth the wall and that would withstand wea...

I really don’t know how to wire it with the Byron 761. It should be compatible..

The two wires on the left are the 8V ones.. the two on the right go outside to the doorbell.

Where do I put the chime?
Based on the compatibility checker it is not compatible with a 4-wire installation
