I dont want anything too fancy, and think I would prefer something with batteries rather than plug in.

Ideally Id like to be able to switch it off easily as I will be on maternity leave and might want some peace and quiet sometimes.

My dog, she alerts you someone is coming before they knock on the door? grin

Sounds perfect! Any particular breed? :D

Every battery doorbell I've had has been absolutely useless. 4 batteries lasting almost weeks before it sounds like a little chick trying to cheep.

Now have a plug in one, and my god I can hear it all over the house, so much better!

I gave up on all wireless door bells. They chime when no one is at the door, day and night. Presumably set of by a radio frequency, car, mobile phone. And then won't chime when someone is at the door. Hopeless.

We have Wilkinsons wireless doorbell and for £7 it is a bargain. The first one went a little odd where it went off repeatedly after 2 years (it started one Saturday morning at 6am...) but we've replaced the button and now it is fine - I think rain had got into the old one. I'm not sure if you can switch it off but the speakers are wireless so I would just chuck it in a cupboard under a coat to muffle it! grin

i think lidl have them coming up.

we had one from somewhere, but it was on the courtyard gate, as people think the front door belongs to someone else so they tend to try the back first...that one kept going off, but we are very very exposed and the gate/post was rattly as hell so i think a combination of damp and movement was too much for it.

I guess on a nice steady door frame and somewhere less open they'd be fine.

We got this one from Amazon, no issues in the past 3 years.

But it's not currently available. This seems to have good reviews though and not too pricey.

I have this one
Had it two and a half years without a single problem. I have one portable battery operated chimer and one plug in chimer.

My parents have a lidl one from the last time they sold them and it seems really good. I will see if they have one next time I am there
