Step by Step Instructions

1 Clean your doorbell mount
2 Attach your doorbell button
3 Find a location for the receiver
  • Step 1. Clean your doorbell mount

    Give your doorbell mount a quick clean with a rag. This will help the adhesive tape to stick to it. 

  • Step 2. Attach your doorbell button

    Cut some double sided tape to the length of the doorbell and stick it to the back of the unit. Then carefully place the unit onto the doorbell mount.
  • Step 3. Find a location for the receiver

    There is a screw hole in the back of the receiver so you can mount it inside your house somewhere convenient. Put it near the front door or in the kitchen so you’ll hear it whenever it rings. Check the batteries and make sure the bell rings before you mount the receiver.
