Swann MP3 DJ Doorbell Gives Your Front Door a Ringtone

Ringtones for your phone is nothing new, but how would you like to customize the “ringtone” of your doorbell? The MP3 DJ Doorbell from Swann gives you that power. The wireless system is comprised of a speaker unit and a push button doorbell unit that attaches to the outside of your door. Insert an SD card (not included) and use the included software to edit your favorite songs to play any part of the song as the “ringtone”. When the doorbell is pressed it sends a wireless signal to 330ft/100m to the speaker unit. The speaker is powered by 3 AA batteries (not included) and the doorbell is powered by a 23A battery (included). You can even use the speaker unit as a stand alone MP3 player as the SD card can hold up to 600 songs (2GB) – 10000 songs (32GB). The Swann MP3 DJ Doorbell is priced at $49.99.

    Sounds like a slightly more high-tech (and less-expensive) version of this: http://www.ichime.com/ . Though the iChime works with an existing doorbell, if you have one. (If you don’t, you’d need the Swann.)

    Biggest problem with that in canada? – the battery would stop working when it got cold…

    I am not sure that it is a good idea to integrate a door bell with MP3 player. How to distinguish if it is a guest at the door or just my favorite song played? Also a few minutes long song – even the best – seems to be terrible as a door chime. It should be a few seconds long, not minutes! One other weak point is the speaker. It is much too small and its volume is woefully inadequate. So, in my humble opinion it is and totally unnecessary device. By the way, I have nothing against MP3 doorbells. I have one of them in my house, bought from kakadu-usa.com. It is much better and and I can definitely recommend it.
