Which chimes work with the Smart Doorbell?
The Smart Doorbells are designed to work with most existing mechanical chime boxes. Currently there are no wireless chime boxes compatible with Feit Electric Smart Doorbells.
Each chime box can be wired to two Doorbells, and additional wiring or upgrading is generally not needed.

Why isn't the chime box chiming after the doorbell install?
How old is the home and how long has the chime box been in place? Old, outdated mechanical chimes may face compatibility issues with modern smart Wi-Fi products due to their limited functionality and lack of integration with advanced technologies. Traditional mechanical chimes operate using simple mechanical mechanisms and are not equipped to work with newer devices requiring a higher draw of power.
Note: If you find your chime box is not working with the Doorbell, you may need to replace your transformer. The Doorbell can use up to 6 watts. We recommend using a 12-24VAC 10VA transformer for a single doorbell application. For two doorbells, it's recommend to use a 20-30VA transformer.
