    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 1 year of use I purchased this door bell and it worked great for about a year and then all of a sudden stopped working. Transformer and power are all good as well as button. I connected directly to unit to see if I could put MP3's on it. When connecting to it Windows says somethings wrong with the usb device. Tried from 3 different PC's all the same result. So, No I would not recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the MP3 Function The chime has the ability to allow you to record your own music on it . I love this feature . The only drawback is that you either have to have a laptop to plug into it's usb connector while its on the wall , or take it off the wall and plug it into your desktop .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Easy to set up with NuTone wireless doorbell button. Sound is good and loud enough to be heard throughout our large, old house. Wish it was compatible with Mac OS, but that's a minor complaint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple Options and Settings. Wire options require some care while installing, staying away from normal house wiring. Setup and operation was very easy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would not have purchased if I knew not Mac comparable. It's hard to believe, in todays marketplace that I can only upload chime music from a Windows machine

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from outdated this is a nice concept and hate to bash a company from my own state (even though, the actual device is made in china) first off you can only upload MP3 files which are basically "outdated" and due to copy write laws MP 4 files cannot be converted to MP3 and not uploaded into this device.......nor is the product MAC FRIENDLY.........hello???? just put it on the box and it would have saved me and others a bit of a hassle....

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from What were they thinking with the cover???? Keep the cover off it. The sound is muffled, and if it is off you can hear it all over the house. I'm going to have to come up with my own cover. I have tried the cover from the BK125 that the builder installed and it is a bit better. It's not as muffled, but the best sound is with the cover off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, if you leave the cover off The sound quality is decent for a small one-speaker device, but the cover totally muffles and ruins the sound. I am going to have to "fix" this by drilling holes in the cover. I'm surprised they didn't discover this before bringing it to market. To program the MP3s into the device, you have to remove the entire device from the wall (disconnecting the wires) or use a laptop. It would have been better design to have a detachable module that removes from the device without detaching the device from the wall and wires. I may even hack the device to do that myself. :) Other than those two pet peeves, it does the job and sounds good. Both of those pet peeves are fixable with a little hacking. I thought 128MB might not be enough storage, but remember it's one small speaker - save your ringtones as mono and 64 kbps (which I do anyway for my phone) and you have plenty of space. I basically ported 20 ringtones from my phone to the doorbell. My current ringtone is "No Place Like Home" by Devo.

  • Please help with this strange behavior...

    I have set the LA600WH up as a wired setup. Everything seemed to be working fine until I uploaded two sounds. When I say fine I mean the default that it was at worked well. I could ring the bell all day long. It seems now when I press the front doorbell it plays the sound but wont play it again. I have to go to the back door and press that doorbell and it will then play. But in order to get the doorbell to work again I have to keep going back and forth. Now, if I go and press the any of the buttons on the chime device it self, I can then go back to the doorbell button I just pressed and it seems to play fine but then I have to either go back and press the buttons on the chime or go back to the other door bell button and press it so it "resets" itself. I tried wiring it differently, changed doorbell buttons, got a new transformer, tried a new diode, deleted the mp3s I uploaded (not the pre-installed ones), ran up and down my basement turning the power on and of for every step and I am still having the same problem. Is this a software issue or am I missing something?
    Asked by: atomsmash
    I had the same problem with a wired system that included Front and Back doors. Adjusting the Cut Time, as recommended in KevinB's answer, solved the issue for me. It is important to note that the Cut Time is not specific to the Front or Back Station. It is universal. Therefore, if you are using different MP3s for each door, both MP3s need to be longer than the Cut Time you select.

    Bell rings by itself.

    Wired installation. Sounds great. Each day it rings at a different time and no one is pressing the button. Where do I begin to look for a fix?
    Asked by: Bob
    I owe this solution to Mike C from NY. Like you, my wired chime rang at least three times a day at random. This behavior just started out of the blue after having the chime installed for close to a year. Based on Mike's suggestion, I removed all of the wireless jumpers from the chime. The chime has not rang one time in error in a week. The jumpers are located on the inside of the chime next to the speaker. I believe that there are either four or five of them if memory serves me correctly. Thanks again to Mike C. for suggesting.

    Getting light to work in button.

    I utilized the LA600WH to replace an already wired system. I installed the diode the way the instructions say on the existing lighted pushbutton, and the button is lit, but does not work. I turned the diode around, and the system works, but the pushbutton does not light. What do I do?

    Lighted door bell button won't work with LA600WH

    I recently purchased a LA 600 WH chime. It worked with my existing doorbell button when I attached the included diode. It's not lighted. When I purchased a lighted button, attached my wires and the diode, it simply would not power the light or ring the chime. I had to go back with the old unlighted button. Are lighted buttons simply incompatible with the LA 600 WH?
    Asked by: AL JPS
    Thanks, I changed the wires on the diode and the lighted door bell button sounds my LA600WH chime unit every time it's pressed.

    Can I have two LA600WH's in home wired for basement and upstairs? Can I also have a wireless doorbutton on one door and wired to another?

    I see in q&a is says "Yes. If the LA600WH and a pushbutton are powered through a transformer, or installed in the wired configuration, you may install additional pushbuttons in the wireless configuration for other doors in your home where the proper wiring may not exist." I have wires to front door, receiver area on mail floor with extra sires going to basement location. I want to add a button at rear door that has no wires. Is this possible.
