So I  have bought one of these
 - http://www.hikvision.com/en/Products_accessries_857_i6482.html

Brilliant little thing - only needs 2 wires so its a really easy swap with my existing doorbell.  
IT has the capability to also sound peoples existing doorbells.
Currently - I have a basic switch at the doorbell that goes back to a comfort input - when you press it comfort plays the doorchime (along with a bunch of other stuff).
Swapping that out and using the existing wires I can supply 24v to the doorbell and all works well.


When you press the bell button the voltage drops from circa 24v down to circa 20ish volts - if you have a look at the wiring diagram ont he second page here -

you can see that that is what used to sound an existing doorbell.


What I want to find is something that sits where the mechanical chime should and changes state when the doorbell is pressed so I can monitor if the doorbell is pressed in comcfort - along with getting all the other benefits of a video doorbell.

Thanks in advance!
Stuart

I think you need a relay  with 24VAC coil voltage. The voltage-freee relay contact should take the place of the pushbutton
