Byron Wired Door Chime Kit is rated

Cheep and cheerful
This is a basic battery operated ding-dong door bell; the kit includes the chime, the bell push and a shortish length of bell wire. You can power it from a mains transformer too, but it is probably better to buy the version with the built-in power supply (sadly not on Toolstation) which you wire with a 3-pin plug. I would describe the chime as medium-loud, slightly tinny.

Good battery operated doorbell.
Our old doorbell needed replacement after 35+ years service. It had been in our house when we moved in. The fair was caused by battery leakage. The batteries (4 size D) were above the actuator. That can't happen with this one. The battery is below it. The old one was a lot louder but I couldn't find a louder one than this Byron without having to run a power supply to the device. This was a simply replacement using the existing bell push and connector wire. It generates the same old "ding dong" and is load enough for us. It is first class value for money and works well

Ok product but not as described.
Bought this as it said in the description. "Includes bell wire, white bell push and mains transformer." Although this product has no mains transformer. The bell wire is extremely thin and unless you put a really good 9v battery and some sturdier wire, you'll be lucky to get a ding far less a dong.

Is there someone at the Gate?
Not a fantastic product, does the job, just!
Keep the bell wires short or it will not work properly.
I added 50m of wire to get down to the gate with the push button, but it failed.
Had to add a relay at the house end of the wire to get it to operate.
Recommend using a powerful bell transformer - 12v 12VA.
The makers need to use approx 4x more turns of finer gauge wire in the solenoid - that would make it better & would use less current to operate it, allowing a smaller bell transformer to be used & bells to be added in parallel. (if you have big house)
I bought a poor 'old-tech' product, & had 'over-expectation' of it.
