EMD-immune Electronic Doorbell
Whenever an antediluvian electric doorbell is used in an apartment building, the rain of sparks that is generated when the Wagnerian hammer pounds against the ‘sounding body’ infests the bell network with interference pulses. These can significantly disturb electronic doorbells, or even cause them to give up the ghost. If you cannot convince your neighbour to convert to something more modern, or at least to build in a noise suppression network, you can use the electronic doorbell described here, since it is immune to EMD.
