Parts of Your Chime Unit and Push Bell
1. Know Your Doorbell and Accessories: First step in setting up your door chime would be, knowing various accessories that are provided along with door chime when you made the purchase.
For example, when you bought the doorchime that we are illustrating above in the figure(RCWL300A1006) you get a cell battery (for push bell) and mounting hardware. In case you want additional mounting tape, you can easily get a good mounting tape from Amazon.
2. Power them ON: Insert batteries into chime (remove the panel by sliding gently) and into push bell so that they are powered up.
3. Sync the door chime and push button: Next step would be syncing the chime unit with bell push.
Let’s first understand what are the buttons available on the chime unit. On the top of chime unit, you will find 2 buttons. The one with music symbol is for setting the required chime tune, and the other button is for chime controls (chime mode, motion detector mode, etc.center). Now, press the chime control button and select chime module. Go to push bell and push the button centre. This action synchronises both push bell and chime unit. Simple.
4. Select a chime sound: Since you have synchronised chime and bell push, next obvious step would be choosing a suitable chime tune. You get 3 chime sounds to choose from in RCWL300A1006. To select the chime sound, easily press the music button given on the top of chime unit. You can toggle between 3 chime quickly. Release the button once you have chosen a tune of your liking.
This finishes the setup of your wireless doorchime.

Use the material provided by Honeywell (adhesive material) and stick the push button to the entrance area of your home and chime unit inside the home wherever you like to place it.
Don’t forget that you can connect multiple push bells to the chime unit. This feature is particularly useful when you want to place push buttons at various locations (such as at different doors) and want to see who is at which door.
