USA: Door Chimes: Door Chime Manufacturers
ABOUT DOOR CHIMES
Door chimes are an alternative to the traditional door bell. They are available in wired or wireless form, and can serve up to three doors with distinctive chimes. The simplest door chimes offer a choice of one or two tones, such as Ding Ding Dong, or Westminster chimes. More sophisticated chimes contain dozens of built-in songs, with special songs for patriotic days and festive seasons. Some door chimes allow the user to program the chimes, or even to record an unlimited variety of music and voice messages.
