Following a visit to a secret nuclear bunker we stumbled
upon a small stash of rather alarming doorbells. Why the inhabitants of a
nuclear bunker would need such a thing is unclear, maybe it was to frighten off
hungry mutants and zombies - who knows? What is certain that anyone pressing the
button on the Wireless Door Push triggers the main unit – up to 100 metres away
– to let loose with a one or more loud nuclear themed ‘alerts’.
Five are stored on the unit’s internal memory. There’s two
attention-grabbing Warning Sirens and three spoken alerts (with accompanying
sound effects). There’s a chilling ‘5, 4, 3, 2, 1’ doomsday countdown, followed
by an explosion, a booming ‘ There is somebody at the door! This is not a
drill’, warning and ‘Attention, Attention, somebody has pressed the doorbell’.
(Old timers may remember the last three; they’re a homage to the hugely popular
Nuclear Doorbell that we used to sell a few years ago).
It’s the doorbell you can’t ignore, but the best part is
that you can program it with your own preferred alert sounds. It plays standard
MP3 files, loaded from a PC using a standard USB cable (supplied). The on-board
memory has a capacity of 126 Mb, more than enough for half a dozen short ( 5 –
10 second) sound files, or maybe just one long one. If you like a bit of
variety it automatically plays a different sound every time the Wireless Door
Push button is pressed, or you can simply edit the files to play just one, or
two, or more, it’s up to you.
The transparent cover of the Wireless Door Push is
removable, for inserting a name label. It comes with a battery for the Wireless Door
Push, fixings for both pieces and simple instructions for pairing the Wireless
Door Push and uploading and editing MP3 files. To get it up and running all you
need is three standard 1.5 volt ‘C’ cells.
As you can see from the photos they really do look like
they’ve just been removed from a nuclear bunker. If you want one of those
fancy, shiny white namby-pamby ‘ding-dong’ doorbells go to a hardware store;
this is for all you doomsday preppers and bunker hunkerers and definitely not
the sort of thing your old granny would enjoy. You have been warned!
