Works wonderfully and as plug-n-play as you can get it. Minor point: - Wish it came with doublesided 3m tape. I didn't have any at home so it required a quick trip out to the hardware store. - Wish the documentation includes default values for various types of water softeners. But that's easily solved with some quick measuring.
Other than that it works beautifully with my Home Assistant setup after creating the necessary sensors.

Thanks for your review! Valid point, I should indeed include a piece of tape, will add it to any subsequent orders. I will also see if I can include a list of water softeners and recommended empty/full levels, so if anyone has proper values for a certain water softener, please send me a message.
When thinking about making my doorbell smarter, id didn't wanted to replace the existing with a doorbell camera. A friend of me told me about this project and how easy it was to install. After waiting a long time I finally decided to buy the Doorbell Modernizr 2. What a great product and super easy to install. I have hooked it up to my Homey from Athom with MQTT, works like a charm!
Next day delivery? Yes indeed. Installation? Pice of cake. Connect power, connect wifi, configure wifi, configure MQTT and done.
I've installed the DM2 in a different way then documented. I've connected the doorbell button (and 8V power) on the left and connected the doorbell button and the ringer on the right. Now I can mute the physical ringer and the DM2 always sends out a MQTT when the button at the door is pressed.
Wow, impressive fast delivery (next day). The Doorbell Modernizer comes in a solid box and a nice looking booklet as user manual. It looks very nice and professional all together. The installation goes very smooth (unless you make a silly mistake like I did). And even when you do make some mistake, there is always an email adress available for assistance. In my case I got an answer within hours. I work with Home-Assistant and for DM I had Mosquito broker installed. Without having extensive knowledge of it all (like myself), it works pretty straightforward. Conclusion: on all domains amazing: the product looks nice and does what is promissed; the shipping couldn't be any faster, the documentatione in complete and understandable and the e-mail communication is spot on. So if you want to modernize your doorbell and have some automation fun, Doorbel Modernizer is really the way to go!
I ordered this board to automate my doorbell and I really like the quality of the board. At first, Erik sent me the wrong board and left me a message. So I returned the board and got the right one a day later. Fast shipping, great build quality and good communication with the seller!
Erik is a great guy! Fast shipping of the product, all well packaged in anti-static bags. Everything was well documented and I could easily solder it together. Because of my lack of knowledge I have asked Erik for help and he has helped me further. I am very happy! Great guy, great product! Thanks!
