Taking turns ringing their new ElectraChime

Posted on June 20, 2016 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

 

The electricians finally got to installing our doorbell!! Everyone is taking turns ringing it. What a fun addition to our new home. The kids found out that if you push in the button and hold for a second it sounds the best because there is room between the ding and the dong. We love it!! Thanks so much for all your help and our awesome doorbell.

ElectraChime Oak Metro with three nickel bells

Hello Robert,

Thanks so much for making a great doorbell. We love it. We've designed our home as a modern interpretation of a Cape Cod with real materials, and the new doorbell complements our style with a richness of real chimes; not those cheap processed sounds from the electronic boxes. And such a prompt delivery. Showed up quickly and installed very easily.

We were glad we found you on the web. Keep up the good work.

The Sun never sets on the ElectraChime Empire

Posted on August 24, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

"The empire on which the sun never sets" describes certain global empires that were so extensive there was always at least one part of their territory that was in daylight. It was originally used for the Spanish Empire, mainly in the 16th and 17th centuries, and for the British Empire, mainly in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The name Empire is appropriate for a line of vintage-style door chimes since long chime doorbells were first introduced in the early 1930s which coincided with the zenith of the British Empire. 

Empire Doorbell on the left welcomes visitors on the East Coast of North America  while the other serves on the West Coast. The ElectraChime Metro, with horizontal lines reminiscent of the International Style of Architecture, graces a wall in Sydney, Australia. 

As ElectraChime door chimes have been installed on six continents, the Sun never sets on the ElectraChime Empire.

Does Your Doorbell Match Your Floors?

Posted on June 29, 2015 by Robert Dobrin | 0 Comments

On occasion, a client requests an ElectraChime to match existing architectural elements. In this installation, we executed a Metro cover in white oak and used the same stain as the refinished original 1930s floors.

Paired with three nickel-plated brass bells, this Oakland, California doorbell niche is stylishly retro-modern with a kind of "always been there" aesthetic.
