I assume that the chime can accept UK household voltages (230V). What type of plug does the chime have? If it is a US or European plug, can I just use a standard travel adapter to plug the chime into a UK household socket?
Yes, the chime can accept 110v or 230v. It has a US plug and will work with a standard travel adapter.
We are also launching this week a new UK plug version of our power supply. It will be up on our website in a couple days.

Thanks for your patience!
Can this work with multiple chimes? Ie, can I purchase one transmitter and 2 chime receivers to have in different parts of my house?
Yes you can. Multiple receivers can pair with mutliple transmitters so that you can have them chime in different parts of the house. Here are the chime pairing instructions:
Please plug in the second non-paired receiver into a socket. With the transmitter plugged in at the split connection, do the following. 1. Select the melody on the receiver using the button on the side of the receiver. 2. Then press the volume button(other button on the receiver's side) for 10 seconds. And keep it pressed. 3. Press the doorbell button so that the sender sends a pairing communication to the receiver. You should hear the chime ring. Just make sure that in the app the chime setting is on. 4. Repeat 3 if not successful. Once it rings, it is paired. 5. Once paired both receivers will ring when the bell is pressed. You can set receivers to independently different melodies. If you do that, you should get all the chime receivers to ring when the bell is pressed.
I take it the chime (bell) also needs to be plugged into an outlet
Yes, the transmitter is installed in line with the power supply and the receiver is plugged in somewhere else in the house.
What is the range of this wireless chime?
We have successfully tested the chime up to 300 feet. However, actual range depends on a variety of factors including type and density of structures between the transmitter and receiver and other radio frequency interferance that may be present. If you have issues at a given distance, please move the receiver closer until connected.
Does this work with Nest?
Yes, it will work great with the Nest when you use one of our power supplies for installation. With the Nest Hello, please do not install the chime connector, as the electronics in our power supply make it unnecessary.
Our installation is incredibly simple:
1. Attach the transmitter in the power supply split connection
2. Attach the power supply to the Nest Hello
3. Plug the power supply into an outlet
4. Plug the chime receiver into an outlet somewhere in your home
5. Set up the Nest Hello in the app
That is it! You are ready to go. No additional electronics, electrical work or wiring needed.
