Show On: Spore at Dwell on Design

Show On: Spore at Dwell on Design

July 27, 2012

It's been too long since Spore has made an appearance at a trade show, but we packed up and went to Los Angeles last month for the Dwell on Design show. The weekend was wonderful and we got great response from everyone who came by. We were excited to be there and hope to make a habit of it. 

Spore at Dwell on Design

We were excited to introduce our products to many people who were unfamiliar with us, but we were especially pleased to meet customers who have been familiar with us for years--one even has their original Square doorbell from when we got our start 15 years ago (and it's still illuminated, passing the 100,000 hour rating of our LEDS!). 

You may notice the handsome orange chime on the display: we debuted our newest addition to our line, which we are calling Big Ring (6" diameter compared to our regular Ring's 4.25"). This chime has such a handsome deep sound. We are experimenting with finishes still, but we are very excited by this orange, which will be in the final lineup. Look for Big Ring for sale this fall. 

While we were out and about on our off hours in Los Angeles, we enjoyed driving around the hills and eating tacos, hitting the Getty Center and Griffith Park Observatory for consecutive sunsets (and we appreciated that coffee in Los Angeles has caught up to Seattle since our last visit). 

For Ted, though, the highlight seemed to be this Citroen DS. Thanks, L.A. We will be back soon.

Are you looking for a black doorbell button or black door chime? Spore has you covered. This versatile finish looks fantastic on both contemporary and traditional homes in a way that no other finish can compare. We've embraced it and offer our thoughts on the ways that illumination color can convey different tones to the same black finish.

Do I Need a Transformer for my Doorbell?
Do I Need a Transformer for my Doorbell?

We get a lot of questions about doorbell transformers! Here we will attempt to answer the most common of them. 

What is a doorbell transformer?

A transformer converts line-voltage to low-voltage (16 volts). In the United States, line-voltage 120 for most household wiring (this is what is running to your lights and outlets). In Europe and other parts of the world, line-voltage is 240. Any transformer that converts line-voltage to low-voltage will work as a doorbell transformer.

On Repair: A Story of a Broken Doorbell Button

In the office last week, we were discussing the importance of building repairable products. We are happy to say that we don't get a lot of calls requesting help with repairs, as our products are built to be sturdy in exterior applications. Nonetheless, some of our doorbell buttons have been in the field for decades now, and once in while we hear from someone whose doorbell is looking a bit shabby or whose LEDs have bit the dust. Whenever possible, we offer replacement parts to try to help customers repair their Spore products.
