    Am i right in thinking i have 2 options,

    Option 1
    Get a new transformer

    Transformer 8V Fuse 1

    Or this

    Question is can i just remove the old one which is currently in the housing in the hallway (Would the new one even fit) or would i have to mount the new transformer at the side of it?

    Option 2
    Wire the eufy up to the old wires but then disconnect the transformer and just use the wireless homebase as the chime? Would it still charge ok?

    Any help would be much appreciated
