Twelve-note Pipe Organ Doorbell

Upon actuation by one of the radio-controlled ringers, the bellows pump in and out, the cylinder turns and the diapason pipes play a tune that is programmed on the cylinder.
At the end of the tune the unit switches off and waits for another signal to begin again.

The Pipe Organ Doorbell. The twelve German made pipes (an octave of notes) sits on top of a small windchest.
