Wireless doorbells by design are more portable than a wired solution. But what if you wanted to make it even more portable?
Sure, you can plug the chime in wherever you need to (assuming you have a spare power socket) but it's no good if you want to take it to the garden, or to the garage.
For that you need something more portable.
Portable Wireless Doorbell Options
Out of the house a lot? Look at the video integration options so you know who is visiting!
What Portability Options Are There?
I have told you about a friend of mine in a previous post about video integration.
He works from home most weekdays.
He turned his garden shed into an office. That means if he needs to be alerted to a visitor, his choices are:
1. A Long Range Wireless Doorbell
2. Wireless doorbell with the option of additional chimes (but still long range)
3. Extendable wireless doorbell
4. Video integration wireless doorbell
He has gone for option 4. It is probably the option I would go for too!
He is alerted through an app on his phone, where he can see the visitor and decide whether to make the journey through his house to open the door!
In fact, the option he went for is the Ring Wireless Video Doorbell, which also gives him the option to let his visitor know he is on his way.
Not only is it a great option for his shed based office, it is awesome for when he is not at home! He can access the app from anywhere with a fast internet connection, and speak to his visitor!
Anyway, this post is not about video integration (We have already covered that!).
It is about portable wireless doorbells!
What Makes A Wireless Doorbell Portable
Basically, it means you do not have to plug the chime in to a power socket.
They are battery-powered instead.
Having a battery-powered wireless doorbell opens up the portability options.
There is (almost) no limit to where you can put the chime.
It can be taken anywhere.....total portability!
I say total, but you must remember, it will only pick up a signal from the transmitter if it remains in the working range!
You can't take it to work 20 miles away and expect to be alerted!
There is an option for that, a video integrated wireless doorbell!
Are There Any Drawbacks For Total Portability?
Sure, there is one glaring drawback!
Remembering to change the batteries.
If you don't have many visitors, they could last a while, but if you regularly order random things from the internet ( a couple of deliveries every day!), you need to remember to check them every set period (6 months for instance).
If that is the only price you pay for total portability, then I am in!
So What Am I Looking For?
1byone - The Best Portable Wireless Doorbell!
That's easy, you need to be searching for battery powered, or portable wireless doorbells.
There are plenty of options out there for you!
1byone are one of the best wireless doorbell producers at the moment, they are selling tons of them on Amazon, and for good reason too!
It is so easy to find a 1byone doorbell with excellent reviews. Here we are looking at portable wireless doorbell options, and would you believe they have this covered....
Take a look at the 1byone Easy Chime wireless doorbell. The wireless chime is powered by 2 AA batteries, unlike their other options, it doesn't need to be plugged in to a wall socket. This option is going to give you total portability.
The range is 100 meters, it has 36 CD quality sounds to choose from and the push button in rated IP44. If you are not sure what that means, take a look at the post we published about waterproof wireless doorbell options.
If you need extra wireless doorbell receivers, 1byone have you covered here, you can buy additional push buttons and receivers if you need to.
Portable Wireless Intercom System
Another great option is this portable wireless intercom system. It has the ability for you to speak with any visitor to your home.
It takes a bit more power that the option above though. The push button needs 4 AAA batteries and the receiver needs a recharge once in a while too.
It has a long range though, working at nearly 600 feet. It is worth mentioning that the push button is NOT waterproof! If you decide to go for one of these, please make sure you do not install it where it is likely to get wet.
The Ring Video Doorbell
A more expensive option is the doorbell I mentioned at the start of this article. The Ring Wireless Video Doorbell. There are two options
No, I am not talking about the films here with that weird kid who creeps up the stairs! I am talking about a well known brand of video wireless doorbells, that my weird friend who works in his shed uses!
These are both great (But expensive!) options, that have apps to be able to communicate with your visitors wherever you are in the world! How is that for portability!
Take a look at both options, and if you have Alexa, then Ring 2 is certified by Amazon to work with her!
There are options above that I am sure will fit your needs!
If you need an excellent, but cheap option, then check the 1byone is for you.
For a bit of extra cash and the added integration options, you can go for one of the Ring wireless doorbells.
If you have purchased any of the above then please let us know your opinion, we would love to hear from you!
