Anything Is Possible.....

In reply to Another doorbell question by Scott from WI on February 27th, 2003 10:18 AM [Go to top of thread]

And in your case it may be possible to install a "drop out" relay that will sense when the voltage drops from the first bell ringing, and in turn energize the second bell.
But if your basement is exposed, you should be able to pull your first bell off of the wall upstairs, find the wires that energize that bell, and run another wire parallel (circuit wise) down through the wall by drilling up from the basement.
Keep in mind that the existing transformer may not have enough capacity to ring two bells.
I agree with tomh, the wireless may be the way to go.
Good Luck!
