    I recently bought a cheap wireless doorbell. It sounds terrible. It has about a thousand different chimes to choose from. It even plays greensleaves and all manner of dreadful Xmas music.

    However all I want is a solenoid ding dong mains powered doorbell. But running a cable would be a hard job due to the layout of the porch and hallway. The answer might be really simple but it's not coming to me. Is there a simple way to make a two chime bell wireless and mains powered?

    Yes. Google wireless relay (RS used to sell them, not cheap)

    I thought the cheap ones had a couple of normal ding dong sounds at the start

    Yes but it's a hideous synthetic ding dong. And it does it twice for some bizarre reason. I want proper physical chimes.
