What is a physen doorbell?

A Physen doorbell is a wireless doorbell made by Physen company. It consists of a doorbell push button that is mounted at the front door, and a chime unit that is plugged into an outlet inside your home.

When someone presses the push button, the chime rings or plays a melody to tell you that someone is at your door.

Why we recommend physen wireless doorbells to you

52 doorbell chimes

The wireless bell has 58 adjustable ringing tones and 5 Volume Levels including the mute mode. You can assign a different melody to each button, making it easier to know which door a visitor is.

Long operating range

It has a long operating range of 500 to 1000 feet in an open space. This means you can hear the bell tone from afar, about 300 meters away.

But when there is an obstruction like walls, doors, and electrical equipment between the push button and the bell chime, it will lower the operating range. Mounting the push button on or around a metallic object can also reduce the operating range.

Waterproof push button

Physen push button has protection against water spray. This means you can mount it in, or outdoors, without the fear of rain.

4 level adjustable volume

This wireless bell has 4 levels of adjustable volume, giving you the chance to select your choice volume.

Low power consumption

It doesn’t consume battery, its battery can last for over one year.

Expandable: Physen comes with 2 push button and 3 receivers, meaning you can extend coverage. You can also configure multiple receivers to ring with different tones to let you know which door has a visitor.

Flashing light for those with hearing difficulty

Apart from the loud ringing volume of this smart bell, it also flashes light while ringing. This gives visual notification to those with impaired hearing.

Has a memory function

If your physen runs down because of a power outage, it can still remember your last tone and ringing volume. No need to reset.

What you need to know before installing the wireless bell

Unlike other doorbells that require wiring, physen is easy to install. But before the installation, here are certain things you need to know.

  • The transmitter and the receiver should be paired, and the tone set to default “ding dong” or your choice of tone.
  • You should not mount the transmitter on a metal surface, since it can block the RF signal between the transmitter and receiver.
  • While mounting the transmitter outdoors, shield it to prevent quick ageing.
  • Low battery status can reduce the operating range of your doorbell.

How to Pair a physen wireless doorbell

To pair your transmitter with a receiver, follow these steps:

  • Select your favourite ringing tone
  • Press and hold the volume control button for about 5 seconds until it plays a “ding dong” sound, and also flashing light, to enter pairing mode.
  • Press the transmitters button to signal the receiver when the pairing is successful. If the doorbell sync is successful, the receiver will play the selected tone automatically.

To pair over one transmitter and receiver, follow the same process and pair each of them.

Note: pairing mode will quit after completion.
