From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bell box for a 1960's doorbell.

A bell box is an electronic audible device, when activated, makes a chime, bell, or buzzer sound.



The housing for the bell box can be made of wood, metal, and/or plastic. The basic core component of a conventional bell box is an electromagnet and a bell or piece of metal that will make a vibrating sound.[1] The bell sound is normally created inside the box, although sometimes there will be one or more bells mounted on the outside of the box. The bell box may also include visual alerts such as blinking lights or strobe lights.
