I have mentioned once or twice in this blog the statement that you are making with your front door. However once a visitor has taken in the splendour of your new front door, hopefully supplied by Doorsan of course, what is his or her next experience going to be? They will ring the bell! It's usual that the ensuing audible signal will be heard by both the occupants of the house and by the person pressing your doorbell button. This is so the visitor is aware that your bell actually works and of course so that you know someone is currently admiring your front door.
It is important therefore to get the right bell tone, or tune, for the more adventurous, to maintain the impression you first set out to achieve when you purchased your door. Don't for example have a grand front door with a bell chime that sounds like a cheap buzzer from a child's Christmas stocking.
There are many door bells on the market ranging from simple one tone bells to wireless "bells" that play tunes or even recorded messages and for the hard of hearing there are visual "bells" which both light up and emit sound, so do some research just as you did when looking for a door and get one that suits your door, suits you and your personality. Remember that by the time your door has been eyed up and the bell tone heard, your visitor has already got a firm opinion about you, the person behind the greeting.
I think it is only fair at this point to pay tribute to the inventor of the electric door bell, Mr Joseph Henry who came up with the idea as far back as 1831! His invention soon took over from the first door bells which had a pull cord. His invention has of course developed over the years, but it is him that we have to thank for the humble electric door bell.
