I have a doorbell question. I have one transformer which is attached to the electrical box, two chimes one up and the other in the lower level, a button on the front door and a button on the back door. My problem is , how can I wire this so that with either button pushed both chimes will ring. Oh I forgot to tell you that when the back door button is pushed the chime rings down stairs and if the front door button is pushed the upstairs chime rings.Hope you can see my problem. thanks
