Eyes Wide Open about Prior Reviews and Happy w/It

published

Bought the model with 2 chime receivers. Easy to set up and change sounds and volumes. There are 32 chime sounds (including 1 knocking and 2 w/bells) and the remainder are chintzy sounding chimes and tunes.

My happiness is because my hearing is not the best and the two chime units are in different rooms, plus each has a fairly loud volume range. If it only lasts a year and needs to be replaced I will still be satisfied if I always hear someone at the door. Previously had Kambrook and Arlec single receiver 'bells' that were stone solid but not sufficiently loud.

Odds seem that they will go for a year or two before problems, but given the alternatives worth the chance.


Rubbish!

published

Had unit about 18months. Capacitor in plugin base unit leaked and burned out beyond economical repair. Steer clear of this rubbish it seems components get to hot. What more can i say!

I have used this door bell less than 15 months.
In this period of time door button stopped working and had to fixed by myself using glues because press button was stuck in the unit . Then 2 weeks ago main ringer stopped working and then there is no way to fix.

Purchased in June 2017.

Short lived piece of rubbish

published

Worked until it rained. Door button appears to work... deluding your visitors. Piece of rubbish. DON'T BUY. Put the door press button on a string and use it as a door knock. It will work that way for a short time.

They fail

published

First one plug in unit failed and a few weeks later the second plug in unit failed. I did all basic electrical fault finding techniques but the units are electrically dead. The product is not fit for purpose do not buy.


Same problem as everyone else

published

Fails to chime although push is indicating it is operating. An obvious manufacturing fault and yet no sign of any product recall. Yet another British firms name being used to fool people into buying a shoddy product.


Works with quick fix

published

I had the same problem as most of the users, door bell button light was on but no sound. Tried holding "bell" button (middle) for 5 sec, then tried also + (volume up), (volume down) for 5 sec and it works again. I think the bell button press did the work :) as it looked like the doorbell was not paired with speaker.

Don't buy Swann Wireless Door Chime SWHOM-DC820P

published

Our Swann Wireless Door Chime SWHOM-DC820P is less than 5 years old and the door bell push has developed an intermittent fault. As this product is still on the market I expected to be able to buy a replacement bell push but SWANN tell me: "The unit is well out of warranty and we also do not sell bell push". So much for good customer service.

Great unit then just stopped working

published

Came very close to buying a second unit for my daughter's new house, then ours just stopped working.
The light on the button works so anyone standing on the doorstep is lulled into thinking it is working.
Don't buy!

Avoid this product.

published

Just don't bother.
This item stopped working 1 week after purchase.
All kinds of fixes, adjustments were tried. Unplug/rest/replug. Different powerpoints and locations. Reset. Etc. After reading these reviews I can see Swan appear to sell some very poorly made products.
Got a credit from Bunnings, bought another brand.

A Disappointment

published

I echo the long line of previous negative reviews. Ours was rarely used yet died well before its time. Appears Swann doesn't care so that brand is now forever blacklisted across the board. As for the one-year warranty, I think Ozzie consumer laws place a mandatory 2-year warranty on items like these. Shame on Swann and shame on their Chinese manufacturers for not taking more pride in their products and responsibility for their repair. Too many negative reviews describing the same issues and yet no response or endeavour to address these issues by Swann.
Very telling!


Does not work right out of the box

published

Bought one today and tried it before installing it, plugged into socket and try pressing the button right next to the bell with no respond. returning straight to the store.
