I am looking to setup a wired doorbell with a wireless chime. This is for a cold weather climate, and batteries do not fare well outside. For the doorbell/chime, I am evaluating the Aeotec Siren and Arlo Wired Doorbell/Chime.
The aeotec siren looks like it would work, but the doorbell button does not. It is battery powered and would likely freeze. It also just doesn’t have the desired aesthetics. What can I use with 16V power that would integrate as a doorbell within ST?
The downside I see for the arlo doorbell/chime is that it would introduce a cloud integration. For privacy/security reasons, cloud integrations are frowned upon. I have seen mixed information on whether or not it would also require the addition of a hub. The form factor of the arlo doorbell and chime are both excellent though. Also acts as a ST doorbell and matches the power requirements.
As mentioned earlier, privacy/security is of concern, so anything related to Amazon/Ring is out as well as Google/Nest. Are there any other options that would work in a non-intrusive way as a smart doorbell?
