Hi there,

House has three entrances. Wants to have electronic doorbells (Ring, Nest..etc..) that can create three different sounds in the home so they can tell which one is being pressed. In Prewire stage right now. Any thoughts? Thank you

I don't have an answer but I have some questions that might help point the way, or at least point away from some answers.

Why do they specifically want electronic doorbells?
Is the house built in such a way that all three of any doorbell can be heard from anywhere in the house?
Or will they need to have some kind of repeater or doubling up of doorbells?

Aiphone or some other type of intercom/doorbell system might have multiple sounds.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Are you doing an automation system?

No automation. They would probably want to hear the chime on the main floor. I'm not even sure a mechanical doorbell can produce more than two distinct sounds. I originally told them to get electrician to wire three doorbells as they also have surveillance cameras pointed at the door. Then I had second thoughts.

Look to Viking, they’ll have a solution whether it’s chime or audio input based.

You can do this with Ring, but you need to have a separate Chime module for each separate tone. Kinda silly, but thats the cheapest way.

Doorbird can accomplish this with their Chime product. All POE based and then configured in the app.

Each doorstation can have separate ringtones. Can also have many chimes too.

Sounds like Ring or Doorbird is the way to go thanks.
