SkyBell Recommendations

Due to increasing compatibility issues with certain chimes, especially digital chimes and chimes manufactured by Nutone, please use a mechanical chime listed below. These chimes are recommended by

  • Newhouse Hardware, Model CHM1
  • Byron, Model 771
  • Heath Zenith SL-27102



  • A SkyBell Doorbell Camera requires 16–24 VAC, 10 VA. There should be no other devices wired to this transformer (address lights, outdoor lighting, etc.)



  • 18 gauge, solid wire is highly recommended by Skybell and most doorbell manufacturers. Smaller gauge or Cat5/6 wire can cause large voltage drops and interference.
