Anyone have any words of wisdom in extending or paralleling a standard wired house doorbell? I need to run another "sounding unit" in the basement where the first floor one can't be heard well, if at all depending on the activity there. Do I just need to get another set and parallel the wiring to a new "sounding unit" from the one already installed on the first floor? We have a classroom setup in the basement where my wife does the home schooling our children.

We just started home schooling with our four kids re-taking control of their being dumbed-down last year in the US schools where we live. We returned from Australia last year; the four were all born there and went to school there. They are in the K12 program being run out of COVA here in Colorado (their link is below). At least we can put the quality back into the quality control aspect of their education. The boys are in 9th (14), 6th (12), and 3rd (9); my daughter is in 1st (6).

Pretty straight-forward things doorbells are, a button completes a low-voltage circuit and energizes a solenoid, it in turn fires a steel rod into one or more chimes.

Absolutely anything that completes the circuit will work, and for as many doorbells as the cumulative current carrying capacity of the contacts will take.

I ran a pair of relays to the doorbell at my house then hooked them into the light switch for the basement and shop. If the lights are on in either (or both) the shop or basement the bells there rings as well as the main set.

Of course with a pair of Jack Russells Terriers around we hardly need a doorbell to let us know someone is at the door.

Best of luck. ....
