    Seems like a shameless plug for Radio Shack. But that’s OK. I like Radio Shack. And I see they do seem to have these recording modules in stock for $11.99 too (catalog #276-1323). I just hope the price doesn’t go up since today is after all, (play the suspense music, please) “Cyber Monday”!

    I only wish I could remember where I saw a doorbell like the one in the article. There’s no reference of where to buy one. So if you want to build your own wireless doorbell then check this out:
