All of our wireless chimes come with their own plain wireless doorbell buttons; however, you can purchase a more decorative wireless button here.
Multiple Buttons & Chimes
As long as you choose a compatible wireless system, you can activate multiple chimes by a single wireless doorbell button, and you can also use multiple wireless buttons to activate a single or multiple chimes. Some, but not all chimes have different sounds for front, rear, and side doors. Check each chime's product description for details.
There are two types of wireless converters available to transform your decorative doorbell into a wireless decorative doorbell: Wireless Converter A Button and Wireless Converter B.
Wireless Converter A Button replaces the standard wired doorbell button that comes with the doorbell. All of the electronics are inside the button, and it will send a transmission signal to compatible door chimes. The wireless version of these converted doorbells will have the white button with the clear rim around it, regardless of what is displayed as the product image. Product images only display the wired version of the doorbell. This button requires a hole 3/4" Diameter by 3 1/2" Deep. Transmission range between button and chime is up to 100 feet. Wireless Converter B is a device that connects to a standard wired doorbell and is mounted on inside wall of your home. There is no button to replace, which means that the doorbell button will look how it appears on the product page. The converter measures 3 1/2" H by 1 1/4" W but requires only a small hole to be drilled in the wall, big enough for a thin wire. Transmission range between this device and a compatible chime is up to 400 feet (depending on the chime).
Chime & Converter Frequencies
For the Wireless Option A button, there are a possible 128 different frequencies. So, if you want to have multiple buttons that each activate a different chime, you can do this by simply programming the frequency on the button to match the frequency of the chime. You can program up to 128 different frequencies so that if you have multiple buttons and chimes, the buttons will only activate the chimes to which they have been programmed to the same frequency. Easy instructions are included. Wireless Converter B is programmed to "learn" the frequency of its compatible door chime upon installation. Again, simple instructions are included.
Wireless Converter Installation Requirements
Wireless Converter A Button Hole Requirements Please note that the optional wireless converter A button requires a 3/4" hole drilled 3 1/2" deep behind your chosen doorbell design. Be sure that you have enough room to drill this hole. To install, drill the 3/4 inch diameter hole 3 1/2 inches deep in the wall behind the doorbell cover you have chosen, mount the doorbell cover using the mounting hardware provided, and push the wireless button/ transmitter into the hole until it is snug against the doorbell cover face.
Wireless Converter A Chime Requirements Please also note that this wireless converter button A requires a wireless doorbell chime in order to work. Doorbell Factory's Wireless Compatible A chimes are tuned to the same frequency as our Wireless A doorbell button/transmitter. We cannot guarantee that other wireless chimes will work with this button/transmitter. If you purchase a wireless doorbell to use with a chime you already own, we cannot ensure that it will function properly.
Wireless Converter B Hole Requirements Please note that the optional wireless converter B requires a 1/4" hole drilled through your behind your chosen doorbell design. Be sure that you have enough room to drill this hole on both sides of the wall. To install, drill the 1/4 inch diameter hole though the wall behind the doorbell cover you have chosen, thread the small wire (included) through the hole, mount the doorbell cover using the mounting hardware provided, and install the Wireless Converter B to the inside wall. Instructions are included

Most wireless chimes use 3 D batteries (not included) and need to be changed approximately every 3 years.
Standard Wireless Doorbell Batteries
The standard surface mount wireless buttons that come with most chimes use 1 12V "A23" battery and need to be changed approximately every 2 years. Batteries are included with the surface mount wireless doorbell buttons.
About 90% of our doorbells are offered in both wired and wireless. Be sure to select the Wireless Converter of your choice next to the Select System Type drop down menu on the product page.
