MP3 DJ Doorbell: Rickroll your unsuspecting visitors

(Credit: Swann)

Store up to 10,000 songs in the MP3 DJ Doorbell, and you'll never have to listen to the same chime twice.

I'm looking at my hopelessly low-tech 1940s-era doorbell. Its most impressive feature is a light-up button outside. If only I could make it play "Friday" instead of "ding-dong".

For AU$69, I can upgrade to MP3 doorbell technology, thanks to Swann's MP3 DJ Doorbell. The wireless design makes installation easy. It consists of a speaker unit that you mount inside, and a push-button doorbell unit that you mount outside.

The doorbell can handle up to a 32GB SD card (not included), full of whichever songs or sounds your little heart desires. You can load up a horse neigh, some gangster rap or Star Trek whooshing door noises.

Editing software is included, so that you don't have to listen to every last note of "My Heart Will Go On".

The MP3 DJ Doorbell offers a lot of potential for designing your own house soundtrack. Set "Jamabalaya" to play for guests coming to your Mardi Gras party. Cue up "Thriller" for Halloween.

Best of all, you can set it to play "Never Gonna Give You Up" in order to Rickroll unsuspecting delivery people, family members, neighbours and solicitors.

I had one of these and had to return it due to it crashing and requiring resetting at random times. Not much use if you are unsure if your doorbell is working or not. The shop said they'd had a few of these returned due to the same problem.
