we have the technology


i put a new door bell button up on saturday as the previous one was just dangling on wires outside our front door.  it didn’t solve the problem of it’s very quietness however, nor did it alter the fact that our new plastic door doesn’t have a knocker.

this problem has been weighing on my mind for a few weeks, and inspiration came to me during the sermon on sunday.  i was thinking about what things we have in the house that are activated by pressing a single button, and which are so loud and in-you-face that they would be heard all over the house.

when we got home kezia and i decided to hot-wire up my incredibly loud indian singer dancing thing.  it really is loud.  but it was fun ‘hacking’ his inards to make him work.

now all i need is to build the shelf for him to sit on by the door …

  1. for those (them) that asked, i’ll do a video of it once i’ve done a shelf.
    jane is having second thoughts as it’s so loud it’ll definitely wake the kids if it’s rung in the evening. i may need to invent some over-ride switch so it goes back to the old bell.
    mmm. trip to maplin i think

  2. My Mum-in-law has one of these wireless radio linked front door bells, so no need to drill your nice plastic door.
    It goes “Ding-Dong” for everyone else, but when I pull up outside, and lock my car with the ‘zapper-key’, Mum’s door does a full Westminster chimes. No hiding our arrival!!!
