There is a more secure way to prevent a doorbell from waking you or your children than placing a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door. You can include an on/off switch in your home electrical and lighting plan to give you a higher degree of control. This lets you regulate noise during naptime or overnight when everyone is sleeping.
Alternatives to Doorbell Noise
You can still receive packages and welcome guests to your home when the doorbell chime is turned off. There are also doorbells that emit light or send notifications to your phone that let you know someone is at the door. This gives you the best of both worlds by reducing noise but also letting you know your favorite subscription box just arrived.
