World's Best Doorbox

Easiest to Sell  •  Easiest to Install  •  Easiest to Use

Light Gray Door Box and Controller


The
World's Best Door Box is also the least expensive, but it's got the features your customers need!

It's incredibly easy to install  because it uses only 1 PAIR of wires to the door - Even the old existing doorbell wire!

It's easy to use because all you do is answer the phone when someone pushes the CALL button at the door.

 

NOTE:  You DON'T need a working phone line in the house to use the World's Best Door Box!

If you don't have a phone line, just use the existing wiring in the house and you'll only use the phones
to answer the door. Or just plug a cordless phone into the World's Best Door Box!
 

This Upgrade enhances the SECURITY of any New or Used Home.

After over 15 years of sales, it's the World's Most Popular Door Box,
and it comes with a 2 Year Warranty!

It's great for older or disabled people who have a hard time getting to the door,
or who just don't want to take the chance of going to the door.

It's a lot safer than answering a regular door bell in a business after hours,
and it can save a lot of time walking through the office or factory.

It's so easy to use that everybody knows how to use it as soon as you install it!

Answer the phone when it rings.  That's it!

 For Home

For Business

  • The Door Box Controller goes in-series with the telephone line coming into the house. Use it with or without a phone line!

  • Press the CALL button on the Door Box, and all of the phones in the house ring in a distinctive manner.

  • Built-in Call Waiting gives you a distinctive Beep. Hookflash to answer the door, and hookflash again to go back to your caller.

    Call Waiting from the door works the same way as the Phone Company's, so your customer already knows how to use it!

  • The Door Chime Interface will ring a real door bell, or activate the switcher for a security camera.

  • Use the Door Strike Controller to open a door or gate. It goes in-series anywhere along the single pair to the door. If you have two doors, it only opens the door you're talking to when you press the * key on your telephone.

  • Call OUT to the door at any time if you hear noises outside. Simply hookflash to go between the phone line, Door 1, and Door 2.
    • LINE-OUT on the Door Box Controller goes to a spare CO Line on the phone system

      NOTE: This system doesn't connect to a station port on a phone system under any circumstances. It provides talk battery and ring voltage, just like a telephone line, so it can't be connected to a station port which also provides talk battery and ring voltage.

      Click HERE to see our No-dial Phones and Automatic Dialers if you are out of CO ports, and need to use a station

    • Press the CALL button on the Door Box, and whatever phones you've programmed to ring for that CO line will ring - including night ringing and external ringers.

    • Use the Door Strike Controller to open a door, a gate, or even a garage door for a truck driver.

    • Use the Door Chime Interface (relay) to activate a loud buzzer or chime, or even switch a security camera to the door when someone pushes the Door Box CALL button.

    • Call OUT to the door at any time by simply going off-hook on the CO line.

    Got a cordless phone?   Answer the door from just about anywhere...
     

    • In bed
    • In the shower
    • In the garage
    • Under your car
    • At your neighbor's house

    It's great for the UPS man!

    Features:

    • All the phones ring 3 times when a visitor pushes the "CALL" button... Just pick up the nearest phone to answer the call!

    • In a business, the phones ring 8 times (optional chips are available to control ringing, but a PBX chip is included inside the Controller).

    • 2 Door Boxes (Door 1 and Door 2) connect to the single Controller... It's unbelievably inexpensive to cover 2 or more Doors!

    • Each Door has a Distinctive Ring if you are using the World's Best Door Box with a phone line.

    • Bridge a Maximum of 4 Door Boxes to 1 Controller (2 on each Door). The audio will come out of all of the Door Boxes connected to the same Door connection on the Controller. It doesn't get any more economical than this!

    • You can series 4 Controllers together, to cover 16 Doors ringing in on 1 CO Line or phone!

    • Set an answering machine on 2 rings to take messages from the Door and the phone line, or 4 rings to only take messages from the phone line.

    • Full Duplex Operation to both Door Boxes - No Voice Switching, No Cutting In & Out!

    • Only 1 Pair Needed to the Door! It even works on the old doorbell wire (18 gauge maximum size to go up to 350 feet, CAT5 will go up to 4,000 feet).

    • Call OUT to the Door at any time... Flash to go between the Doors.

    • The Door Box Controller will drive up to 5 standard ringers (5 REN, like the Phone Company), or a line on a phone system.

    • Will work thousands of feet out to a Door Box at a Gate!

    • No code to remember to open the door!   Press * and the optional Door Strike Controller buzzes your door for 3 seconds, or as long as you hold the * key, plus 3 seconds.

    • For a stealth Door Box, mount a Door Box behind a grill above the door, and use the old door bell button as the CALL button.

    • Use the Door Chime Interface to operate a real doorbell, or to stop a security camera switcher on the correct camera for that door.

      If you have a dog, you need the Door Chime Interface to have the old door chime ring when someone is at the door, otherwise the dog won't bark when someone pushes the CALL button - they'll bark every time the phone rings!


      If you have a dog, you need the Door Chime Interface!

      If you have a dog, you need the Door Chime Interface to make the old door chime ring when someone's at the door... Otherwise the dog won't bark when someone pushes the CALL button, the dog will bark and run to the door every time the phone rings (your customer won't like that!).



    The Door Box System makes a very inexpensive Hands-free Intercom!

    Put the Door Box at the boss's desk, and the secretary can call the boss hands-free, even if he's on the regular phone. Works just as well as a hands-free Intercom in a small warehouse, where the warehouse employee can talk-back to the person calling.


    All of the components of the Door Box System can be purchased separately.
    Buy exactly what you need, when you need it.

    Make up a Demo System so you can demonstrate it to your customers!!
    Make up a Demo System to show your customers. Use a hardware store door bell and a buzzer (to simulate a door strike).

    As soon as a customer sees it in action, they want it!

    DOOR BOX CONTROLLER

    Click for bigger picture of the Door Box Controller





    Door Box Controller

    The Controller is the heart of the Door Box System.


    The wall mount Controller is normally mounted near where the phone lines come into the building, or near the phone system.

    Each Door has a Distinctive Ring, different from the regular ring on a CO line. Note that you wouldn't hear the distinctive ring on most phone systems, because the phone system makes its own ring (it doesn't pass the cadence from the phone line through to the ringers on the phones).

    If a phone system can't pass the distinctive ringing on to the phones, and the customer really needs to know whether it's the front or back door ringing, the solution is to use two Controllers, one for each door, and have them ring in to separate CO lines on the phone system (this is still pretty inexpensive!). For example, CO5 for the front door, and CO6 for the dock door.

    You can bridge up to two Door Boxes to each Door connection on the Controller. That lets you have up to 4 Door Boxes on each Controller

    BUT WAIT, there's more...

    You can put up to four Door Box Controllers in-series with each other. Just go from LINE OUT to LINE IN from Controller to Controller. With 4 Door Boxes per Controller (2 on each Door port), that means you can have up to 16 Door Boxes ringing in on 1 Line!

    Note that if you put two Door Boxes on a single Door Box port, the same sound will come out of both Door Box speakers, and you'll hear the ambient noise from both doors (and the volume will be a little lower because they are bridged together).

    Easy Installation!  The telephone line and/or telephones connect to either the modular jacks, or screw terminals (jacks and screw terminals are bridged together internally).

    There are two screw terminals (+ and -) for each of the two Doors.

    The Controller installs in minutes!

    Use LINE IN for the telephone company phone line if you are sharing the Door Box System with a phone line in a home. LINE OUT goes to all of the phones in a home, or a phone system in an office.

    NOTE: Do not share a phone line if the Door Box System is on a line on a phone system. Because the line on the phone system can be put on hold, there would be nobody to hear the Call Waiting tone when someone is at the door, and the line is on hold. That would lead to service calls where the customer complains that someone was at the door, but they never heard the phones ring.

    Call Waiting should NEVER be put on a CO line on a phone system for that reason. It's very hard to diagnose No Answer problems caused by Call Waiting on a service call!

    Use the Controller to make your phones ring!   You don't even need a Door Box if you just want to ring your phones when something happens!

    • When you short the Door 1 or Door 2 contacts through a 300 ohm resistor, any phones you have connected to LINE OUT will ring!
    • Stick an electric eye on your driveway, and the phones will ring every time someone comes up the drive
    • All you need is something that provides a dry closure to make your phones ring
    • If you also have a Door Box, put the Door Box on Door 1, and the dry closure on Door 2 (you'll hear a distinctive ring on single line non-cordless phones)

    Controller comes with an AC plug (not a power cube). The Controller MUST be installed in an area protected from the weather (temperature and moisture). You should also install an AC Surge Protector, and Lightning Protection if it's connected to a phone line or the Door Box goes outside the building to a gate (see Door Box Lightning Protectors below).

    8 RING CONTROLLER CHIP FOR USE WITH CO LINES

    Replacing the Chip (IC) that comes inside the Controller (by default) with this Chip makes all of the phones ring 8 times, rather than the default 3 times when someone pushes the CALL button. This Chip allows the front and back doors to ring differently.

    This Chip is only for use when sharing a phone line, not for use with a phone system.

    Even with the default 3 Ring Chip, you still have around 10 seconds to answer the phone to talk directly to the door after the phones stop ringing. If you hear dial tone when you pick up the phone, simply hookflash once to call out to Door 1 to talk to the visitor.

    Unplug the AC before removing the circuit board from the Metal Box!

    Click for bigger picture of the Chip in the Controller (circled in red)



    While it's easy to get the circuit board out of the Controller by spreading the legs on the metal box, only an experienced technician should remove and replace the chip. If any of the legs are bent by mistake when inserting the new chip (with the power off!), the Controller won't work properly.




    Part Number: CLN2O   Price: $7.95


    8 RING CONTROLLER CHIP FOR USE WITH CO LINES - WITH NO DISTINCTIVE RINGING

    Replacing the Chip (IC) that comes inside the Controller (by default) with this Chip makes all of the phones ring 8 times, rather than the default 3 times when someone pushes the CALL button. The ringing will sound the same for both the front and back doors (using the same cadence as from the Phone Company), which makes it compatible with some oddball phones that won't ring with any kind of distinctive ringing.

    This Chip is only for use when sharing a phone line, not for use with a phone system.

    Part Number: CLN1R   Price: $7.95


    8 RING CONTROLLER CHIP FOR USE WITH A PBX

    NOTE: This Chip is included inside every Door Box Controller!  

     It's taped inside the metal box, so you'll have it available immediately if you're working on a PBX or Key System.

    Replacing the Chip (IC) that comes inside the Controller (by default) with this Chip makes a phone system (key system or PBX) ring 8 times, rather than the default 3 times when someone pushes the CALL button. The ringing will sound the same for both the front and back doors (using the same cadence as from the Phone Company), which makes it compatible with any phone system.

    This Chip is only for use on a PBX or Key System, not for use when sharing a phone line (the Controller won't even see the CO line with this Chip).

    The purposes of this chip are to:

    • Allow a user to call out to the door
    • Ring 8 times (instead of 3 times) to give a user more time to answer the door
    • To provide a standard telephone company type ring cadence (2 seconds on, 4 seconds off), to make it compatible with phone systems that don't like distinctive ringing

    Part Number: CLN2M   Price: $7.95


    3 RING CONTROLLER CHIP FOR USE WITH CO LINES (DEFAULT)

    This is the Default Chip that comes in the Controller. You won't need it unless you put another Chip in the Controller, and lose the original Chip.

    This Chip is only for use when sharing a phone line, not for use with a phone system.

    You have around 10 seconds to answer the phone to talk directly to the door after the phones stop ringing. If you hear dial tone when you pick up the phone, simply hookflash once to call out to Door 1 to talk to the visitor.

    Part Number: CLN2A   Price: $7.95


    2AG .5A SLOW BLOW GLASS FUSE for DOOR BOX CONTROLLER

    This Fuse is in-series with the AC power cord and the electronics in the Door Box Controller. It should never blow, but if there's no power to the Controller and it's plugged in to a live AC outlet, this might be the problem.

    The other fuse in the Controller is a fast blow fuse, but you can use this one to replace either one.

    This is a Slow Blow Fuse.

    Click for bigger picture of the AC Slow Blow Fuse in the Controller (circled in red)



    It's easy to get the circuit board out of the Controller by spreading the legs on the metal box.

    The AC Fuse is the top fuse, next to the AC power cord on the circuit board. The Phone LIne Fuse is the bottom  fuse.

    You can tell the fuse is Slow Blow by looking for the two little solder blobs on the wire inside the fuse (circled in red).



    Part Number: TLS7O   Price: $0.59


    DOOR STRIKE (LOCK) CONTROLLER

    Door Strike (Lock) Controller











    Door Strike (Lock) Controller



    This new model has a DIP Switch to let you select *, #, 5 or 7 as the trigger digit. * (star) is the default trigger digit.

    When the user pushes the * key (star key) on their phone, you'll get a dry closure (short) on two wires for 3 seconds (or as long as the * key is held down, plus 3 seconds if the phone will make a tone for as long as you hold a button down).

    When the * key is pressed, only the door that the user is talking to will open. If there are two doors with door strikes, you'll need two Door Strike Controllers, one for each door.

    A security feature in the Door Strike Controller will prevent someone from making a * tone at the door to try to open the door strike.

    If you need to open a door strike or gate from the door, without someone doing it from inside the building, simply put a keypad type switch at the door, which will give you a dry closure (which you would bridge across the same contacts as the Door Strike Controller).

    There is no separate connection to the Door Strike Controller from the main Door Box Controller. The Door Strike Controller can be installed anywhere in-series along the single pair of wires going to the door. It doesn't have to be installed by the main Controller. It's usually installed near the door (where the strike and transformer are), so you don't have to deal with the voltage drop which occurs when you send voltage a long ways on small wires.

    NOTE: The Door Strike Controller doesn't provide the voltage to operate the door strike. It only gives you a dry closure so you can operate a door strike or gate (you put the two wires on the Door Strike Controller in-series between one side of the door strike and the door strike transformer). The door strike and transformer for the door strike must be customer provided.

    IMPORTANT: The Door Strike Controller should be used for low voltage applications. If you are using a 110VAC door strike, use a slave relay between the Door Strike Controller and the door strike.

    Relay Contact Ratings are: 1 Amp at 125 VAC, or 2 Amps at 30VDC.

    The Door Strike Controller will also operate a Gate



    At a Gate, you'd install the Door Strike Controller out at the Gate,
    near the customer provided gate controller and the Door Box.

    DOOR CHIME INTERFACE (RELAY)

    Door Chime Interface (Relay)








    Door Chime Interface (Relay)

    The Door Chime Interface gives you a .8 second (less than a second) dry closure when the CALL button on the Door Box is pushed.



        Use the .8 second Dry Closure to:

    • Ring the real Door Chime (Door Bell) in a house
    • Operate the switcher for security cameras, so the switcher locks onto the correct camera at the door where the Door Box is located
    • Open a door strike or gate automatically when someone pushes the CALL button on a Door Box

    When used with the old door bell, connect the Door Chime Interface so that it rings either the front or rear (double or single) chime (ding or ding-dong).

    NOTE: You can only have one Door Chime Interface per Door Box Controller.

    If you have two doors where you want to operate separate chimes or cameras, you'll need to put each door on a separate Door Box Controller. You can have both Door Box Controlers ring into one phone by putting the Door Box Controllers in-series. (i.e. LINE-OUT from the first Door Box Controller to LINE-IN on the second Controller, and then LINE-OUT of the second Controller to the phones).

    Two wires on the Door Chime Interface are simply connected (bridged) anywhere along the pair of wires to the door. It can be installed near the main Door Box Controller, at the door, or anywhere in-between.

    Relay Contact Ratings are: 1 Amp at 125 VAC, or 2 Amps at 30VDC.

    The Door Chime Interface comes with a 110VAC power cube. You must use the power cube.

    If you have a dog, you need the Door Chime Interface 

to have the old door chime ring when someone is at the door, otherwise

    Electronic Devices Attached to Phone Lines Need Lightning Protection!

    If the Door Box System is attached to a phone line in a home, it can be damaged during a lightning storm.

    The Phone Company provides lightning protection where their wires enter a home, but it's designed to prevent damage to the old style phones that weren't electronic. Modern electronic phones or phone equipment is much more sensitive to lightning than older phones.

    If your Door Box is mounted to the side of the building, and the wires don't travel outside the building, you don't need lightning protection on the wire coming from the door. If the Door Box is located at a gate, away from the building, you absolutely need lightning protection on the pair of wires before it gets to the Controller.

    Even if you run the cable to the gate in a metal conduit, you still need lightning protection on the pair from the door, at the controller.

    Here are some of the Lightning Protectors we carry:

    MLP-270T 1 CO LINE PROTECTOR with SCREW TERMINALS

    Click for bigger picture of Terminal Strip Lightning Protector


    You need one Protector for each regular phone line or analog station port (pair) with ring voltage.

    If the line doesn't have ring voltage, use one of our lower voltage Protectors (below).

    Attach the ground using the opening on the Terminal Strip (maximum 12 Gauge Wire), use a Ground Lug (not included) attached to the Screw, or mount to a Wall Mount Ground Bus.

    Part Number: KIT4A   Price: $30.95


    MLP-030T 30 VOLT PROTECTOR with SCREW TERMINALS

    You need one Protector for each line (pair) with a maximum DC voltage of 30V.

    This could be used on a data pair (RS-232 etc.), or a station port with very low voltage.

    Be sure to put them at BOTH SIDES of the cable leaving the building!

    Part Number: KIT4C   Price: $29.95


    DOOR BOX TVS (LIGHTNING PROTECTION)

    Door Box TVS (Lightning Protection)


    Door Box TVS (Transient Voltage Suppressor)

    This device prevents high voltages from damaging the Door Box when it's out at a gate, away from the building where the Controller is. Just stick the TVS under the two screws on the back of the Surface Mount Door Box, or beanie it between the two wires on the Flush Mount Door Box,

    10 FOOT AC GROUND PLUG WITH 12 GAUGE WIRE

    Click to see bigger picture of our 10 Foot Ground Wire with an AC Power Plug

    This is as easy as it gets!

    Plug the Yellow Plug directly into a wall outlet that you've tested to make sure it's wired correctly (see our AC Outlet Tester). Strip the #12 Green Stranded Wire and put it in the Modular or Terminal Strip Lightning Protector ground, or in a Ground Lug.

    Don't plug this into a power strip! You want the best ground you can get, and you don't want to include all the extra (smaller) wire in a power strip.

    Click HERE for our Electrical Grounding Tech Bulletin

    NOTE: Use this #12 Ground Wire with our Terminal Strip or Modular Maximum Lightning Protectors™. #10 wire won't fit in the terminal for the ground wire on those Protectors, unless you cut some of the strands off (not a good idea).
