Got my new "Mail Chime" today! It lets me know with 4 chimes and a led if the mail came so I don't have trounce through the snow to check. Neat gadget.

How does it work? Do you have a mailbox at the end of a driveway?

My mailbox is next to my door, but that would be cool if it was at the end of a driveway.

Its further than that ,its across the street. The mail boxes are located on the opposite side of the street to accommodate the right hand drive mail trucks. The device has a small battery operated transmitter mounted to the mail box door and a receiver inside the house. There must be some kind of motion detector device in the unit to detect the mail box door movement.

Draclvr look at the reviews for example on Amazon. Throw out the best (probably a brother) and the worst (probably just somebody ornery) before you buy. I don't even know if mine works yet.

I've only got a boring bog-standard letterbox in my front door or else I'd LOVE to have one of these mail chimes laugh
