'[EE]: Doorbell for the hard of hearing'

Is there an off-the-shelf solution for a doorbell that uses light and maybe
even emits a loud sound? Preferably wireless, and easy to install by a
non-professional.

Thought I'd check, before hooking up a strobe to a Walmart doorbell. :)

A little pricey for me but not bad for what you get:

Thanks, that's probably what I will go with. Here's another one I found,
that looks similar:

I wonder how bright the strobe actually is...



Here's one you can plug into 110V (doesn't work for my application,
unfortunately -- I need batteries or 220V):

Only $15.

Check with your local doctor who does hearing issues or medical supply.
Seems thats a rather common problem. Also check your local electrical
(commercial/industrial) supply house, strobes are used for emergency
evacuate alarms in buildings.

Not answering your question, but I built one - blinking lamp in
ceiling - 1.5 years ago when I needed one myself. I also added the
functionality to blink when there was mail through the door:

   http://bos.hack.org/hacks/door_alarm/

I'm around 80% deaf, so this project was a life saver. Sitting at 4
o'clock in the morning playing some game, the lamp suddenly started to
blink. I ran out to the hallway to see that some maniac advertisement
mailman had put junk into my mailbox, despite I clearly had written
"NO UNADDRESSED MAIL INTO THIS MAILBOX" on a sticker and put on the
door, so I managed to grab him telling him "wtf is this?".

No junk since then!

Radio Shack seems to have discontinuedthe really good one. The current
product is neither loud nor bright!
They are useful to all in a noisey work shop.

In case somebody will find this info useful -- I bought and tested two
wireless doorbells.

Doorbell #1:
http://tinyurl.com/ysup6x
Quite loud (and somewhat annoying) Moonlight Sonata melody, with sufficient
LOS range (tested up to about 30 ft), and bright flashing red LEDs. Tx is
powered by 2 AAAs, receiver uses a 9V cell. Signal did not propagate through
concrete wall and metal door/gate.

Doorbell #2:
http://tinyurl.com/24phwa
More pleasant ding-dong sound (three variations available, jumper-selectable
in the transceiver), strobe is actually a white LED (not very bright). Tx is
powered from a 12V battery, receiver uses 4 C cells. Higher voltage on the
Tx may explain why it still is able to get through aforementioned concrete
and metal.
