The problem

Some Swann wireless door chimes have been recalled. When forced, the back cover may detach from the receiver, exposing live parts which could cause an electric shock.

  • model number SWHOM-DC820P2 or SWHOM-DC820P

  • serial number with the first 5 digits between 08548 and 09075

They were sold between January 2015 and February 2017 at the following stores:

  • Mitre 10
  • Mitre 10 Mega
  • Placemakers

What to do

Stop using the door chime immediately and remove it from the power socket.
