Wireless doorbell bed shaker and more

I saw this listing and would like to know what folks think about it. Cell Phone Ringer Amplifier & Wireless Doorbell with Bed Shaker - External Ringer for Cell Phone with LED Flasher - Cell Phone Amplifier Speaker & Landline Ring Detection by Serene Innovations.


I wear hearing aids, on my 3rd set. As I tell people, “Me and my hearing aids, we don’t hear too well.” I do not own a cell phone, I use my landline. The base unit includes the answering machine; I do not use voice mail. I have phones in 2 other rooms, paired to the base, it all came as one set. I prefer using email, as I just can’t hear well on my landline, especially if the other person is on a cell phone and moving around. I’ve missed people ringing my doorbell many times. I am sometimes sitting reading in the living room, and do not hear the doorbell.

Seems to be a new item, as I am not seeing any reviews on it as yet.

Few thoughts:

  1. I know nothing of the device. I’d be skeptical, but if it truly seems to meet your needs and the money isn’t too much of an issue, it MIGHT be worth a try.
  1. I’d be more inclined to look at a store like this https://adcohearing.com/ that specializes in products for hearing impaired. This is not a recommendation for that store. There are likely others, but there are places that specialize and I suspect they could offer more assistance.
  1. I wouldn’t expect somebody with your audiogram to be having quite so much difficulty. Have you seen your audiologist recently? Do they have any recommendations?

Two thoughts:

First, does anybody come to your door that you care to interact with? Where I like that would be rare.

Second, I would rather have a cell phone that connects to my HAs than a land line. That is the setup we have.


I ignore my doorbell unless someone has already let me know they are visiting…

If someone has a reason to ring the bell before 5am, then I suspect they will break my door down because the house will be on fire anyway :o)


I remember when the OPN was launched it worked with Internet of things

I set up a video camera (alert) to a customer. As it turns out it was supper annoying

and within a week my client had me delete this.

This IFTT never really took of, it also some bugs- There is a probably work around to this

  1. I have the option to ‘test it out,’ it will be sent to me free. So I decided to have it sent, see what it does.

  2. Thanks for the link and info for more help.

  3. Last saw audiologist in Oct 2019, when I got the current pair of hearing aids. Going back though my posts, I see I wrote this in Jan 2022:

I have KS9 hearing aids, and frequency lowering.

I can’t hear my microwave beep, or my toaster / oven. Can’t hear birds or crickets. The world is very quiet. Except for tinnitus. There is always tinnitus to keep me company.

When I speak, I am advised that most of the time I am shouting and need to lower my voice.

I can’t understand what most people say, except in some 1 on 1 situations.

I have no idea if I am getting a benefit from the frequency lowering.

At this point, I am quite cut off from people. I seldom interact with anyone. Can easily go a week not speaking with anyone. Then I’ll go grocery shopping, brief exchanges with folks in the store. I can’t really make out what they are saying to me, and again, I am often told I am shouting. That’s my life, now.

I’d say a visit to the audiologist (or Costco) is long overdue. Your situation might very well improve a lot with reprogramming your hearing aids.

Yes, on my list for this year.

Well I received the item, can’t use it without a smart phone, so no use for me.

I use this one but it is much more expensive and doesn’t work with IFTTT. IFTTT also will need a phone, this doesn’t.
Maybe this is more what you are looking for.


I use this system. Sits in a cradle with a vibration pad for night time.

Just realised @emile.heilbron uses the same.

I use the “Geemarc, Wake ‘N’ Shake Curve”… Works well, and it is extremely loud, with the vibrating pad in your pillow, it also flashes, you can set, 1,2, or all 3 alarm features, it also has a USB charging port for your cell phone, I believe, I paid around £50, expensive for an alarm clock, but you get what you pay for… Cheers Kev :wink:

This seems more to be an alarm clock with shaker. But indeed a pretty nice one for that purpose. With possibility to USB connect f.i. your rechargeable HA’s. Wake'n'Shake CURVE - Geemarc UK

Only thing is that as I understood @Freedom is more looking for a device to get informed for his land- line telephone and the doorbell. Probably also likes to be informed for fire or smoke alarm. Which is not the job of the Geemarc device.

How do you deal with sirens, i.e. fire/police coming up behind you while driving? Even with my hearing aids in I just don’t hear them. Had two police cars with lights and sirens on my tail the other day, and I hadn’t even known they were coming. I got over fast, but that’s scarey! It’s not the first time I’ve had close encounters of that kind, either. Yikes! Do any of these doodads help with this?


I normally don’t hear the sirens of the emergency vehicles, @gayle, I usually see them, before I hear them, but I am now extra vigilant whilst driving, especially at, Traffic Lights, Junctions & Roundabouts…And yes, whilst daydreaming, I have also had a few frights…

Thank you @emile.heilbron :grin: Cheers Kev :grin:
