Welcome to the Bitiwend wireless doorbell Review!
As part of our wireless doorbell reviews, we decided to take a look at the Bitiwend wireless doorbell to see what this minimalistic wireless doorbell has to offer.
The Bitiwend wireless doorbell is available with:
- 1 Receiver, 1 push button or
- 2 receivers, 1 push button or
- 3 receivers, 2 push buttons
It is great to have this much choice, especially if you are looking for an expandable wireless doorbell with more than one receiver. This choice needs to be made at the point of purchase.
Bitiwend Wireless Doorbell – Details
What You Get In The Kit
2 x Push Buttons
3 x Receivers
Screws & Anchors
Double-sided Adhesive Tape
1 x User Manual
12V23A Alkaline Battery
1 x Screwdriver
The advertised distance for the Bitiwend wireless doorbell is 1000 feet (300m), which means you are likely to get around 50% when installing in your home.
You have to remember that there are many obstacles between your wireless doorbell push button and receiver. Walls, doors, other electrical items, and floors will weaken the wireless signal as it passes through them on the way to the receiver.
That being said, 1000 feet in the open air will give you more than enough distance capabilities for a regular size home.
There are 52 different ringtones to choose from!
The tones range from the classic ‘ding dong’ to more melodic options. Follow these simple instructions to pair the device and select your favorite tune:
Of the 52 chimes, you are only likely to like a small amount! If you are like me, you will go through the entire list before settling on the classic ‘ding dong’. Having said that, it is nice to have such a wide variety of chimes to choose from.
The volume range is 25dB-110dB which is more than enough volume for a regular size home! The volume can be set using 1 of 4 volume levels.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing then the Bitiwend wireless doorbell, along with the LED flash when the button is pressed, needs to be considered.
Whilst there are louder wireless doorbell options (some hitting 125dB!), 110dB is simply loud enough!
There are two things you need to consider when thinking about a weatherproof wireless doorbell.
In terms of being waterproof, the Bitiwend wireless doorbell is rated IP55, which is one of the best options, and ensured that the push button is not damaged when exposed to the rain. More details about the IP rating can be found on our waterproof wireless doorbell post.
Working Temperature Range
The working temperature range for the Bitiwend wireless doorbell is -22°F to 158°F (-30°C – 70°C).
It really is a complete weatherproof wireless doorbell! Cold, or hot, Sun, or Rain, the Bitwend wireless doorbell has you covered!
Wireless doorbell installation is very, very easy and you can expect the same with the Bitiwend doorbell.
Pairing the doorbell receiver with the push button is extremely easy, simply follow the same instructions as you would when choosing a new ringtone:
How To Pair The Bitiwend Wireless Doorbell
- Please plug one receiver into a regular socket, and pick the sound you want on this receiver.
- Press and hold the volume button on the receiver for about 5 seconds, the receiver will blink with a “ding” sound, then immediately push a transmitter to pair with the receiver.
- Finally, you will hear the music you set.
- It is the same operation method to pair other transmitters with receivers.
Installing the Push Button
The wireless doorbell kit comes with screw and adhesive strips to secure the push button to your front door.
In terms of how you install it to your door, it is completely up to you. There are drawbacks to using either the adhesive or the screws.
Using the adhesive strips allows you to secure the push button without causing damage to the frame of your door. If you are not happy with having screw holes in your door frame then we suggest that you use the adhesive strips.
The only drawback is the strength of the bond. If your front door is exposed to the elements (if you do not have a porch) then the rainwater may weaken the bond over time.
You may choose to screw the push button onto your door, which is the decision we always go for. You will always need a doorbell, so although they are screw holes in the door, they are always going to be used to host the push button.
In fact, we not only use the screws to secure the push button, but we also use the adhesive to add is some extra protection. Over time, the push button could cause a little damage to the doorframe, so the adhesive offers protection.
The Bitiwend wireless doorbell has a 12-month warranty and a worry free 30 days money back guarantee!
In terms of confidence, it really shows that the manufacturer has it in abundance if they are willing to offer both options.
After reviewing the Bitiwend wireless doorbell, we had no hesitation in adding it to our list of the greatest wireless doorbells for your home, office, or apartment.
It is a fantastic option if you are looking for a:
- Weatherproof wireless doorbell
- Cold weather wireless doorbell
- Waterproof wireless doorbell
- Doorbell of the deaf or hard of hearing
The minimalistic design, multiple chime choice, and loud volume mean it scored very highly on this review.
Another great feature is the ability for any visitor to leave a note within the push button. I know it will rarely be used but it is a nice option for them to have.
