Here’s a project/circuit that will turn on/off a doorbell for 10 hours each day, it was created so one person could sleep during the day and not wake up because of door-to-door solicitors ringing the bell. [via] – Link.

    Looks well thought out, but what’s wrong with an off switch?

    I like this, i’d end up forgetting to turn the switch off before I hit the bed or back on when I wake up. Then i’d miss all of those night-time Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    OK, so the bell is turned off but what if they are resourceful solicitors and decide to knock since the bell doesn’t work?

    Interesting project. RTourn – what if you forget to turn it off.

    I like what I have done to help prevent solications…. I put up a $5 sign that says “No Soliciting”
