_My_ original post mentioned that the receiver is SO load you'd hear it
"above all except a jackhammer"

... and the one I picked up for my ageing Mum has a flashing LED on it,
too.  So, place (such an all too easy solution) in front of you, on or
near your monitor and you're laughing.

Just had a thought to satisfy you geeks who can't stand easy, non-DIY
Use the wireless receiver of the doorbell, as I suggested, and tap into
the wires going to the speaker in it.  Solder a couple of alligator
clips on the end of flying leads in parallel to the speaker.  Clip one
on each ear lobe, nipple or testicle and you'll be ??laughing?? when the
bell rings.  Tell us your address and I'll come over each day to say
hello and hear how delighted you are to see me ;-)
