Swann MP3 Doorbell goes wireless, lives up to name

by Gareth Mankoo

You know you’re at a musician’s house by the doorbell he welcomes you with. So if you have Beethoven’s Symphony chorusing through you are sure to find a piano in the hall. Or so we believe. Now bell tones aren’t as static as they used to be. The Swann MP3 Doorbell allows you to set an MP3 track as a doorbell. Firstly it is wireless and the speaker and bell unit can function up to 100 meters apart. The bell works with a 23A battery while the speaker takes up three AA batteries.

It can connect to your computer via a USB cable to facilitate song transfers. How about recording a smart message instead? $50.
