The working distance of the Crosspoint doorbell is 500ft/150m in open areas, but you can get more than that if you are using it in a house without many items to interfere with the signal. In open air, the Crosspoint can reach 1000 ft.
There are a number of things that can interfere with the signal from the wireless doorbell push button, including walls, doors, anything metal, and anything that also uses a wireless signal.
It is not the longest range we have seen, with other wireless doorbells capable of reaching over 1300 feet. Although when you consider the size of the average home, we say that 500 ft is more than enough!
You are able to attach over 20 extra items to the Crosspoint kit, so if you need a wireless doorbell with more than 1 receiver then it is worth considering this as an option.
The frequency of the Crosspoint is 433MHZ.
Melodies and Volume
Let’s begin with the ringtones. There are 50 different melodies to choose from, which is more than enough for you to choose one that you love!
If you would like to choose a different ring tone for different push buttons then that is not a problem either.
The volume range is 25dB-110dB which is a good volume for a large house. As there are two receivers with this kit, you can space them out to ensure you hear any visitors. If you need more, then extra receivers are available!
110dB is an excellent volume for a wireless doorbell, however, if you are hard of hearing there are louder wireless doorbells that you will want to consider. Having said that, the Crosspoint wireless doorbell kit has a vibrating receiver as an extra add-on, so if you are hearing impaired then you will know when you have a visitor.
There are two things you need to consider when thinking about a weatherproof wireless doorbell.
In terms of being waterproof, the Crosspoint wireless doorbell is rated IP68 which is one of the highest ratings we have seen.
You can be sure that this wireless doorbell will work even in the heaviest rain storms!
Working Temperature Range
The working temperature range for the Bodyguard wireless doorbell is 5°F to 140°F (-15°C – 60°C).
If you live in a cold climate then there are better wireless doorbell options for you. Having said that, the Crosspoint is rated to work in most climates around the globe.
Wireless doorbell installation is very, very easy! The Crosspoint doorbell is no different. Pairing is easy:
- Plug in the receiver and select your desired melody sing the forward and backward buttons.
- When you have selected your desired melody, simply place the receiver into learning mode by pressing the volume button for 5 seconds. You will hear a pairing alert tone to confirm the receiver is ready.
- To finalize the pairing process, press the button on the transmitter (push button) within 5 seconds.
To unpair the units, simply press the music control forward button for 5 seconds. When you hear the ‘chirp’, the device has entered pairing mode. The receiver has now been cleared of any settings.
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.
There is a 12-month warranty with the Crosspoint wireless doorbell, along with a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not happy with the purchase.
If you return the doorbell within 30 days, it must not have been used. Any used doorbells that are returned under the money back guarantee will be rejected.
