    a customer wants to replace his wireless doorbell with a wired system. now the thing is, he wants a chime in the house and a chime in his garage on the same button.

    what is the best possible way to do this??? would i need a bigger transformer to power both chimes???

    Possibly, depends on a number of factors including tranny ampage and voltage output, chime's elec specs, volt drop may be an issue if a very long run.

    I recently added another chime to an existing bell, easiest way for me was to piggy-back off the terminals of the primary chime. When testing it initially to see if it worked ok, the chimes were a bit weak. However, when installed and the cable run was half the length as before the-chimes-were-a-chiming.

    I know th new chime was rated at 8V 1A. But am not 100% certain on tranny or original chimes.

    Why does he want to have a wired chime? Not buy a wireless kit with two chimes and set them to the same frequency?
