Mail Chime Review
Mail Chime Mailbox Alert - Simple, Elegant, and Affordable
I installed a new Mail Chime mailbox alert system yesterday in just minutes.
It was easy, the components are well-made, and the instructions were crystal clear. It's rare you get all of these things with one product. If you want an example of horrible and confusing installation instructions, look at my First Alert smoke and carbon monoxide detector review.

How Far Away Can my Mailbox Be?
The manufacturer recommends that the receiver in your home be no more than 300 feet away from the mailbox.
Does the Mail Chime Receiver Have a Volume Control?
Yes, there's a rotating volume-control knob to adjust the sound output. You can turn off the sound completely and just rely on the red light.
How Does the Mailbox Sensor Attach to the Mailbox?
The Mail Chime sensor comes with double-sided tape. Be sure you clean the surface of the mailbox lid before you attach it.
Will the Mail Chime Sensor work on Different Mailboxes?
Yes, It will work on wall-mounted mailboxes and mail slots cut into doors. The sensor activates when any lid is moved a certain distance.
Can an Average Person Install the Mail Chime?
Yes, the installation process is simple. You just have to use a small #0 Phillips screwdriver to remove four small screws on the sensor. This allows you to install the tiny battery that powers the radio transmitter. Reassemble the sensor cover, take off the cover to the double-sided tape, and put the sensor on the mailbox lid. All you have to do next is plug in the transformer to a wall outlet and then plug in the tiny DC jack into the back of the Mail Chime receiver. It's so very simple!
