Is it loud enough to be heard throughout the house?
Our customer is hard of hearing and needs to be able to hear the doorbell even from the upstairs bedroom.
This is a hard question - as this mainly depends on what noise input you have going on in the upstairs bedroom and if the door is closed. I wear hearing aides and the sound is distinctive enough (for the front door anyway) to hear anywhere on the first floor and I can hear it downstairs if the basement door is open and the TV is not too loud. The rear doorbell only rings one chime and it could be missed with the TV going on. Carpeting and a lot of fabric coverings tend to absorb the sound somewhat. The sound level is not adjustable - it is what it is (a hammer striker striking a chime). The sound is of medium tone and medium volume that sounds a lot (to me) like a tone one used to hear in large department store speakers/intercom systems.

Will this work with an additional chime in the basement
I have an existing doorbell that requires a diode to be installed at the push button, when I remodeled the basement I added an inexpensive 2 note chime to the basement and can not get it to work with my existing doorbell chime. I would like to replace the existing chime with this model but would like to know for sure if the two will work together.
Thank you for your question on the model LA305WL wired door chime. The LA305WL can be wired to a two note chime. You would just connect the “Trans”, “Front” and “Rear” terminals from the LA305 to the same terminals on the two note chime.
