Me too. I have a brass plate between the knocker and the bell that

all over the house, even at the end of the garden. The knocker can't.

I'm still pondering adding a circuit to the knocker so that, if used,
a loud voice intones: "PLEASE USE THE BELL!!".

I like that idea!


So do I. But rationally, if you are going to fit a switch to the
knocker why not make it operate the bell? An additional voice
announcement is optional: "I told you to use the bell!".


Because I could do all that locally, which makes life easier.

The bell push is wired back to an Arduino (and more) on the floor above.

Or make it ring the door bell. ;-)


See previous answer, just made.

Interesting because my Hermes man (Cotton Traders deliveries) takes a
photo of me and the house!


They all seem to take photos but often of the package left on the step
without the recipient. That doesn't stop a dishonest driver taking it
away again and claiming delivery or someone passing seeing and taking it.

Photos I've had from Hermes show the package with an /open/ door behind it.
