Doorbells and door entry systems

This section includes doorbells and door entry systems with accessible features.

Doorbells which flash, vibrate or sound loudly may help a person with hearing loss to be alerted when the doorbell is pressed. When the doorbell button is pressed, a unit within the home flashes, a portable pad vibrates, or a loud ring is sounded. Some doorbells have a combination of more than one of these features. 

Most models are wireless, and are either battery powered or the chime unit plugs directly into an electric socket.

Door knock beacons are attached to a door and flash a strobe light if they detect a knock on the door.

One-way intercom systems enable a user to speak to, and hear a caller at their door. They can also release a door latch so a caller can be let in without the user having to go to their door. Some have a video function to enable the user to see the person at the door as well as speak to them.

Two-way intercom systems enable communication between two or more rooms, or between one or more rooms and a box outside the front door. They can be used to talk to a caller at the door before the user decides whether to let them in.

Telecare door entry systems enable a person to open their front door with a remote control system and/or enable a carer or the emergency services to open the front door with either a remote control or by contacting the person's help centre.

Sound indicators are alerting systems which may flash a light or trigger a vibrating pager to notify a person of their doorbell. They may also be used to be alerted to the telephone ringing, a smoke alarm or baby monitor.
