Remote Doorbell Warning Switch circuit


Posted on Feb 6, 2014

It is quite easy to miss the sound of a doorbell if you are watching TV, this circuit gets round the problem by providing a visual indication, i. e. a lamp. As an alternative, a LED could also be used. You could just parallel a lamp across the doorbell, but this would mean extra drain from the doorb

ell batteries or transformer. Using a series resistor R1 actually reduces current flow, and if run from batteries, will give them a longer life. The value of R1 is chosen so that about 0. 6 to 0. 7 volts is dropped across it, and the doorbell should still ring. I used a combination of a 22 ohm resistor in parallel with a 50 ohm. The doorbell still rang and circuit operated correctly. I used to have an electromechanical counter that registered each time when someone pressed the switch. in fact, I remember a time when I had more "hits" at my doorbell then at my web site=:)
