The iGear Symphony doorbell is likely ideal for spaces like large homes, offices, mobile businesses and more.
The doorbell launched in India for Rs 1,499, will be available for purchase across Amazon and Flipkart with a standard one-year industry warranty.
iGear Symphony — Features
The doorbell works in conjunction with a wireless battery-free switch, which generates electricity whenever a user presses the switch utilizing kinetic energy. The generated tad bit energy here creates electricity and further allows the indoor bell unit to produce the alarm/alert. This further eliminates the need to connect to power, or battery or an adapter, for that matter.
The wireless Symphony switch can act as an outdoor unit and it comes with weatherproofing. iGear says this switch could also be ideal for indoors to work as a portable alarm/audio trigger. For closed areas, the doorbell promises up to 45 meters of range and for areas with a lot of open space, it promises longer 100 meters range.
This environment-friendly Symphony, which has a wireless receiver, will sing up to 38 built-in polyphonic tones. While the switch happens to be wireless, the receiver, however, needs a standard 230V power source/supply. As per the requirement, the volumes of these polyphonic tones can be adjusted manually within the indoor unit.
