I recently decided to disconnect my doorbell to stop it from waking up the family. I removed the doorbell from the outside of the house and disconnected one of the two pairs of wires that were connected to it (two pairs of two wires, each pair connected to one screw). This disabled the doorbell just fine, but I am worried about the way I "capped" the live wire using electrical tape. Since the wire nuts I have don't fit inside the doorbell this was the best I could come up with. Once wrapped in electrical tape, I tucked the wire back into the doorbell casing, screwed the one screw back in, and reattached the whole thing to the house. Is this safe? Everything I have found online mentions that it is safe due to the wire being low voltage. This is a new doorbell on a new home, if that makes a difference.
All doorbells have a transformer that changes 120 volts of household electricity into 24 volts of electricity.or less. This low voltage is not dangerous and wrapping the wires that come off the transformer with electrical tape is a safe way to seal the wires. Tiny wire nuts can be used for the same purpose.
I am in the United States, MN specifically.
