True on California Home + Design Blog

March 31, 2010

We were ever so pleased to read the great write up about True on the blog of California Home + Design. Spore's fan base has always been strongest in California, and we hope that True will find a home on more homes down there. We were especially happy to read editor Mary Jo Bowling's endorsement of the True as a doorbell button of choice for mid-century and older houses. It was our goal in designing True that it would find a broader audience than our classic line, and it appears that it will. If ever you see a True on a painted lady, please let us know! We would love to see a picture of it.

We get a lot of questions about doorbell transformers! Here we will attempt to answer the most common of them. 

What is a doorbell transformer?

A transformer converts line-voltage to low-voltage (16 volts). In the United States, line-voltage 120 for most household wiring (this is what is running to your lights and outlets). In Europe and other parts of the world, line-voltage is 240. Any transformer that converts line-voltage to low-voltage will work as a doorbell transformer.
