The volume is adjustable between 25 and 110 decibels, and there is a flashing LED for when the volume is muted.

The esLife wireless doorbell comes as a pack of one transmitter and two receivers, and what we really love about it is that it is completely battery-free for both the doorbell and receiver! Kinetic energy powers the chime unit without the need for a battery or electricity, and the receivers are plugged into a power socket, so these also don’t need batteries.
The operating range for the receivers is 150 meters in the open air, but only 50 m once walls interrupt the signal. The receivers are small and compact and won’t overlap onto a double socket as a larger plug-in receiver may do. Additionally, the esLife wireless doorbell boasts 58 ringtones and has four adjustable volume settings. A blue LED will alert you to someone at the door if the doorbell is on mute. In the event of a power outage, the unit will remember your last tune and volume selection to save you from scrolling back through the options again.
Being installed on your front door or doorframe does mean that the doorbell is exposed to all elements, but this one is IP55 rated and is, therefore, less susceptible to fog, dust or moisture in the air. The sound level is below some of the other doorbells in our review, only going up to 80 decibels, so bear that in mind if you live in a large house or are hard of hearing.
- Range of 150 meters
- Memory function
- No battery required for the doorbell unit or receivers
- 58 ringtones
- IP55 rated
- The sound level only goes up to 80 decibels which is lower than other wireless doorbells

This is a stylish and sleek long-range wireless doorbell with an operating distance of 300 m! Two receivers are included when you buy the Avantek doorbell, and it boasts an impressive 52 chimes to choose from. Additionally, this doorbell’s small but useful feature is a next and previous option when going through the chime selection.
A 29 mm speaker also means that the black wireless doorbell delivers great sound quality, and there are five volume levels to select from, going up to 115 decibels which puts it at the top with some of our best wireless doorbells. This will be a great wireless doorbell if you are hard of hearing or live in a large house.
The doorbell unit is IP55 rated and can withstand more extreme weather conditions such as frost and direct sunlight. Finally, the doorbell chime does require batteries, but the lithium battery supplied has a 3-year lifespan, so it does not require regular changing.

The Secrui unit is one of our best wireless doorbells for a couple of reasons! It has four volume levels, and the highest is 120 decibels, putting this at the top of our ring doorbells for noise level! It is also IP55 rated, which means that it can still provide optimum performance even in temperatures ranging from -20° C to 60° C, and it is also dust and water-resistant!
There are 39 tune options to choose from with this wireless doorbell, and both the receiver and chime unit are battery powered, meaning that you are completely free to choose where you wish the receiver to be placed. A USB cable is also supplied so that that can also charge the unit.
The doorbell requires batteries; they are not supplied when you make the purchase, so that is something to be aware of. But the fixing kit is included if you choose to use that rather than the adhesive strips to attach the doorbell to the wall.

- IP55 rated
- USB power lead supplied for charging

This wireless doorbell by Honeywell has lots of clever features, like the ability to mute the unit indefinitely or for a period of 3, 6, 9 or 12 hours if required. It also includes a completely portable unit so that you can take it anywhere you like around your house or garden and not worry about missing someone at your door again.
There are six different melodies to choose from, and the unit goes up to 84 decibels, which is lower than some of the other wireless doorbells in our review. Still, with a portable unit, you won’t need an incredibly loud doorbell chime!
The design is stylish, too, with its halo LED lighting, which will alert you to the door if the chime is on mute or if you are hard of hearing. Additionally, it is ready to go out of the box, so it is very little you need to do to set it up!

- Stylish design
- Mute timing options
- High-quality sound

The options available for wireless doorbells are much greater than it was, and so we have listed a few items below for you to consider:
Wireless doorbells can transmit radio signals across different distances. If you have a large house or would like to have a receiver in an outbuilding in your garden, you need to look for a wireless doorbell with a long range, even with obstructions in the way.
The right wireless doorbell for you may come with two receivers, allowing you to have one placed downstairs and perhaps one upstairs or at the back of the house, where it is harder to hear the bell. You can even purchase a wireless doorbell with three receivers, so be careful to think through what number would work best for you.
Ringtones and LED Alerts
One of the key features to look out for when selecting a wireless doorbell is the number of chimes you can choose from and whether these also include a standard ding dong; if you are a traditionalist, where do these things stand?
The option to mute your wireless doorbell is also important if you have conference calls or a baby taking a nap. Some of our wireless doorbells have the option to mute the device for a set amount of time, so you don’t need to remember to unmute it!
LED light indicators are very useful on a wireless doorbell if you are hard of hearing or if you have set your doorbell to mute.
Video and Smart Features
A video doorbell offers you the opportunity to speak to people at your door if you are out or just vet who it is at the door before you answer it! Good video doorbells will give you great day and night vision and will keep the audio in sync with the video.
You can also get a smart doorbell that can connect to a smart device of your choosing and that uses a motion sensor to identify when someone is by your door and send an alert to your phone.
Smart doorbells can link to cloud storage, so you do not have to supply an SD card, but often one will be supplied to start you off. Subscription services are sometimes offered, so be careful to fully do your homework on these.
