Instructable: Wireless Doorbell with Lutron Pico

Since I purchased my Lutron switches, I have a lot of pico spares (the price of the combo is almost the same as a single unit)

After reading another post about pico switches, I thinked about what I need: a doorbell...

I made today my wireless Doorbell, using simple tools: sand paper, a cutter, a simple plate (Lowes, Home-depot, etc), some reusable adhesive (Instant TAC) and some ideas.
Because it's a pico, you can manage it to behave like you want.
Personnaly,
a single push => regular people
long push => friends and family

Simple as absolutely integrated into HE :joy:
Pictures are below. You're smarter than HE, so no more explanations needed.












Finished and installed !

That is really clever!
It even looks like a door bell!

How is it standing up to our cold winter weather?
(No snow yet, North of Toronto)...

If only Lutron would make a one-button Pico... :frowning:

will see in the forecoming winter. Quebec here. If that pico can hold the winter and if you don't live in Antartica, your pico will survive too ! :laughing:
