    Have a cordless doorbell which sounds during windy weather, false alarm is easy to spot as it plays wrong tune (choice of ten tunes) and always the same wrong tune so we know to ignore.Any idea why?

    That’s what I thought but why only during windy conditions?

    it must be a bad connection on something causing it to generate an arc pulse or spark off the frequency needed to operate activated by the wind
    if its a plug in the mains bell maybe its via the power lines if you have overhead ?

    Completely unrelated to weather issue...

    But I installed three sliding gates in West Hampstead with the middle one being last one to install. First house I done put a wireless door bell on there house, works perfect. Installed the middle sliding gates, and intercom. Works perfect. Ten months later, first house called to say every time there next door neighbour (middle house) opens there gate via remote the door bell chime will make a noise. Funny thing was, it was a dog barking noise which was not even in the options to have. I couldn’t do anything, bar saying they need to get a new door bell. Just when they about to buy new one, it stoppped. They believe it was this van that was parked out side there house on the main road for month interfering with there door bell.

    So yeah wireless doorbells are prone for interference

    Actually there was four gates, three houses, smaller houses had one slider per house whilst bigger house which was top house had two sliding gates. They are 3-4 bed detached homes with a side gate to get to back garden. Top and bottom houses had same builder who does “electrical” work, and don’t believe in skips as all the rubbish was in the basement.
