Wireless doorbells perform much the same as a regular doorbell, but no hard wiring is necessary. A remote button is mounted to the outside of the home in the desired location, usually next to a door. When the remote button is pressed, radio signals are transmitted to the chime which is mounted inside the home where it can be conveniently heard. Although wireless doorbells are easy to install and use, according to the Ace Wireless Doorbell guide, the batteries in the remote button and the chime case will need to be replaced every year.
