Door bell (ringer or chimer)


Novice Member
Hello All.

I have been searching the internet for, what I thought would be easy.

I have already a door bell (switch) It is connected to my chimer or ringer. I want to exchange my chimer for a chimer with wifi.
Is there a chimer or ringer which has a wifi or wlan connection possibility to pass the information on to my iphone, when someone presses my already installed door bell button.
I do not want to install a new wifi/wlan door bell with a camera or change anything except my chimer.
I haven't found one yet.

I.e. The chimer is inside the house, connected to the mains power. When someone rings my door bell, I sometimes don't hear it. If my (need to find this) chimer would ring and at the same time send a buzz or a notification to my phone I would have the chance to get to the door before the person leaves.

All I can find is new sets of wifi/wlan buttons and cameras. Don't need any of that, just a simple chimer which will connect to my router and while I'm in the house the router will contact me via the wifi.

Any ideas where I can find this??

Try looking on the IFTTT website, as it may show you an input module which is compatible with the service.

Alternatively, I have used SMS pagers with inputs but they will only text your phone rather than alert it.
