Two Tone Doorbell Using IC 555



Saw someone selling a two tone buzzer on Aliexpress for $10. Immediately my brain said, are you serious? 
Just by investing a little bit of your time and enthusiasm you can make this circuit for under 3 dollars. 

Components Used
For this project we need:
  • 1 x 555 Timer IC
  • 1 x Pushbutton Switch 
  • 2 x 1N4148 Diodes
  • 1 x 10μF Capacitor
  • 2 x Ceramic Capacitors (103)
  • 4 x 47K Resistors
  • 1 x 8Ω Speaker


So, this is the simple schematic of the two tone buzzer circuit using the 555 timer IC.

The Board

And, this is how my board looks like. 

The link to the gerber file is here: 

You can also download it from my website or my blog:


Lets start the project by soldering the 4, 47K resistors to the board. Then, lets solder the 2, 1N4148 Diodes to the board. After that I am soldering the 2 ceramic capacitors to the board. Next, I am soldering the 10μF Capacitor followed by the base of the 555 timer IC. Finally, I am soldering the male female pin-headers to the board. It really doesn't matter what order you solder the components to the board; however, putting the small components first makes the process a bit easy.
Once all the components are in place its time to install the IC to the base, that's it all done.


By pressing the push button switch you can now produce the two tones from the 8Ω Speaker attached to the pin headers. 


Thanks again for checking my post. I hope it helps you.

  3. I will recommend anyone looking for Business loan to mr benjamin who helped me with Four Million USD loan to startup my  business and it's was fast When obtaining a loan from them it was surprising at how easy they were to work with.The process was fast and secure. It was definitely a positive experience.Avoid scammers on here and contact mr benjamin On.  . WhatsApp...+ 19893943740. if you looking for business loan.

  4. Possible wiring problem (mine). Currently I connect the left-most cap 103 (see schema) to IC pin 2 and then to IC pin 6 without connecting to pin 7. When I press the button I only hear clicks from the speaker. There are no tones.
